First of all, there is no such thing as a "CLK500 AMG". The CLK500 does have some AMG-branded parts like the wheels and exhaust tips, but its not an "AMG" car. My biggest concern would be that this has an early version of the 722.9 7Gtronic transmission and those tended to have more problems than later versions. Otherwise, the 5.0l V8 M113 engine is great - rock-solid.
