Mercedes-Benz CLK 63 AMG

With the Mercedes-Benz CLK 63 AMG the German firm continues its move to more power in more and more models. There was a 5.5 liter engine in this compact coupe/convertible based on the C class platform - but the new engine takes the car into a different class; it becomes a true supercar. This new 6.2 liter V-8 develops 481 bhp at 6,800 rpm, with maximum torque of 465 lb ft (630 Nm) at 5,000 rpm. That’s not all: this new engine packs a mean punch low down, chucking out 368 lb ft (500 Nm) of torque at 2,000 rpm. As the CLK is a compact supercar coupe, the result is hot shoe acceleration with a 0-60 mph time of about 4.5 seconds from an engine that revs to around 7,000 rpm!

Jack and tire iron - Any car without the means to change a tire is a problem waiting to happen. That used Chevy you bought for your teenage daughter may suit her just fine, but if you bought it without the necessary equipment, then you’re needlessly exposing her to a potential problem. You can find these items at flea markets or head to your local auto supply store to find something new.  In any case, that tire iron should also have a wrench feature. If not, you’ll be springing for a third part. Tire pressure gauge - New cars come equipped with tire pressure monitoring systems, but they’re not a substitute for a tire pressure gauge. This little device, which can fit your glo
