Crash tests for the CLK?

How is the safety on the CLK? All I see on youtube are crash tests for the S-Class.



Got benz?

You'd be hard pressed to find crash test results on any Mercedes Benz.
Even the NHTSA has little to nothing on Mercedes Benz.
They are so tight lipped I've recently discovered that with a vehicles' computer control unit (the "black box") post accident one cannot access its data even if they took a trip to Germany during discovery.

Must be an old gripe between Jewish Attorneys and a German Car Company.
I'm arranging to crash two CL's at a cost of $100k just to prove my point with them. They've been having fun with me for over a year now but that'll soon stop (rear head injury in an severe head-on collision).

Um, to the above poster - there is tons of MB crash test data out there. This page for example:
Mercedes Benz | Euro NCAP - For safer cars crash test safety rating

I couldn't find any CLK crash test info but if you search youtube there are tons of Mercedes crash tests, not just for the S Class.

I stand corrected. Just no crash test data on the CLK, SL, and CL's.
Which happen to be their top performance vehicles (with more power than the SLR on the latter two).
