is it AMG or not?

I was looking at the Mercedes 03' clk430 and some models of the convertible have AMG written on the back. A large majority of the ones i've come across on the internet don't have that on the back. Here's a link to one i found that had it:

Ebay Auction clk430

I know what AMG is, and i also know it makes the car a lot faster. Is there a difference between clk430's with or w/o AMG written on the back? The 03' CLKAMG model looks really different, that's why I am confused.

Are you sure you know what AMG is?

That's a fake. It's nothing more than a badge. The only AMG tuned CLK that Mercedes came out with for that genereation was the CLK55AMG. It had a 5.4L V8 for starters, not a 4.3. Since the dealer is not selling this as an AMG, I have a feeling the previous douchebag owner put the emblem on to look cool. To answer your question, the onlky difference between normal 430's and 430's with fake AMG badges on them is the plastic AMG badge. Other than that, they're the same car.

Not really, it didn't say anywhere that it was an AMG, and the only thing that might show unsuspecting buyers otherwise, is the discreet AMG logo....which in my opinion, doesn't look too bad, and coming from a man who HATES anything "Boy Racer" that's a bold statement, lol. Nice car too
