Lot 272 - 2002 Mercedes-Benz CL 55 AMG
|Odometer reading||99,981 miles|
|Result||Sold - £4,480|
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 came in various guises with this example being the supercharged V8-powered CL 55 AMG. It came equipped with the very latest in Mercedes-Benz technology and, along with the S-Class saloons, the CL coupés received all new technological features.
This excellent Mercedes Benz CL 55 AMG has been properly maintained throughout and has a good service history up to 2014 and has little use since. Supplied new, it comes with all the desirable options including air conditioning, air suspension, park distance control, sunroof, heated electric seats, folding mirrors, wood veneer to the centre console and door rails, Mercedes-Benz navigation system and Brabus alloy wheels. Finished in silver with black leather interior, this CL 55 AMG is supplied with a V5C registration document, an MoT test certificate which expires in May 2018, the service book and a few invoice of previous work carried out. The instantly accessible and barnstorming performance of these cars challenges any of their contemporaries yet they represent outstanding value in today's market, especially with this example being offered at no reserve.
