What kind of car does Jeremy Clarkson drive? - Mercedes CLK 65 AMG Black
As you would expect, Jeremy Clarkson, host of Top Gear, has a lot of cars! His most beloved car is his Mercedes CLK 65 AMG Black. He was so impressed with it when he did a review on it in a Top Gear episode, that he bought one himself. The one he purchased is black. In his review, Jeremy says that a CLK Black is different to the standard CLK 65 AMG, because they stripped it of extra airbags, and replaced the door panels with carbon fibre, etc. "And the result of all this is", he goes on, "the Black is a little bit heavier than what they started off with." Jeremy is glad that Mercedes-AMG spared the air-conditioning unit and radio. Clarkson says that it's not completely like a race car - if it was, his ears would be bleeding and his body broken. It feels like a proper race car, but at the same time, thankfully doesn't.
