The name CL stands for the German 'Coupé Leicht' or Coupé Light.
The CL-Class is based on the S-Class full-size luxury car known at
first as the SEC and later S coupé. It was spun off into its own,
current name in 1996 and in 1997 for North American markets. The CL
continued to follow the same development cycle as the S, although
riding on a shorter wheelbase and sharing the same engines albeit
with less choice as only the higher-output power trains were
offered. The second generation CL or the W215-chassis coupé of
2000-2006 were offered as: the V8-powered CL500, the supercharged
V8-powered CL55 AMG, the V12-powered CL600 and the limited
production 5.5 litre V12 Bi-Turbo. CL coupés come equipped with the
very latest in Mercedes-Benz technology and, along with the S-Class
sedans, the CL coupés received all new technological
This Iridium Silver CL500 with grey leather and walnut trim has been impeccably cared for and is offered with a full Mercedes-Benz service history and an MoT Test certificate valid until February 2015. With just two former owners, this luxury Mercedes gives S-Class luxury with coupé looks and pillar-less lines. Powered by a 5.0 litre V8 and offered at no reserve, this is a lot of car for very little investment and a sure future favourite.
