|Odometer reading||121,071 miles|
|Result||Sold - £2,800|
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 CL 600 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 saloons, the CL coupés received all new technological features.
Originally registered on 19th April, 2002, this Mercedes-Benz is supplied with the original service books and a collection of invoices confirming she is a well looked after example. The silver paintwork is in good order as is the black leather trim. Luxury and specification are available in abundance with these magnificent vehicles with automatic transmission, electric seats, air conditioning, cruise control all standard equipment. However this CL 500 also benefits from an electric rear blind and the highly desirable feature of 'keyless go'. Supplied with a V5C registration document and a current MoT test certificate valid until 3rd December, 2017, these pillarless coupés are immensely stylish. This 15 year old Mercedes-Benz is offered for sale without reserve.
