Do anyone know if there are any changes at all for the 2003 CLK430 Cabriolet. Price? Wheel? Body kit? Options?

yes there changing the body and the price it suposed to Spy Shots: 2003 Benz CLK <br> <br> <br> A Geneva unveiling for Benz’s mid-size coupe.<br> by Brenda Priddy <br> <br> <br> <br> <br> <br> More TCC Spy Shots<br> TCC 2002 Buyer’s Guide: Mercedes-Benz by Bob Plunkett (10/1/2001)<br> 2001 Mercedes-Benz CLK430 Cabriolet by Marty Padgett (5/28/2001)<br> <br> <br> The next-generation CLK is set to be unveiled at the 2002 Geneva Motor Show.<br> <br> The new two-door coupe — to be followed in 2003 by the cabriolet version — will be positioned higher in the Mercedes family. It will be slightly bigger, better equipped and somewhat more expensive than today’s version.<br> <br> Sharing the platform with the current C-Class, the upcoming CLK will be riding on a slightly longer wheelbase. The result is not only a roomier interior, but also a sleeker, more elegant appearance. The two-door four-seater will come without B-pillar and will have the front seat belts integrated into the seats.<br> <br> Although the camouflage on the cabrio prototype suggests it will have a standard canvas top, that is not the case. The pictures reveal thin joints over the whole width of the canvas - the joints that part the elements of the electrically operated foldable metal roof (similar to those of SLK and the new SL). The canvas overcoat is nothing more than a clever disguise!<br> <br> As an option, both the coupe and the cabrio will be available with air-suspension and 4Matic all-wheel drive. Electro-hydraulic brakes will also be available.<br> <br> Together with the upcoming E-Class, the new CLK will be the first car to receive Mercedes’ new direct-injection engines. The entry-level engine will be a 1.8-liter four-cylinder Kompressor unit, which with 168 hp will be more powerful than the current 2.0-liter drivetrain and about 10 percent more fuel efficient. Even diesel engines will be available for the new CLK, and AMG is currently working on a hot version of the 220 CDI for the CLK.<br> <br> Brenda Priddy & Company<br> <br> <br> TCC SEARCH <br> <br> <br> <br> ADVANCED SEARCH <br> <br> <br> <br> CONNECT <br> » Links <br> <br> » Message Boards <br> <br> » Calendar of Events <br> <br> » Photos <br> <br> <br> » Subscribe <br> <br> <br> <br> SEND THIS ARTICLE<br> TO A FRIEND <br> Send to Email: <br> <br> <br> <br> Your Email: <br> <br> <br> <br> Personal Note: <br> <br> <br> <br> <br> <br> <br> <br> <br> <br> <br> <br> <br> <br> <br> <br> Copyright © 2001 by the Car Connection TM.
