Marketed as a four-door coupé, the CLS was designed by Michael Fink in 2001 who also styled the first generation CLK, the C-SportCoupé, and Maybach 57 and 62. The W219 CLS is based on the E-Class platform and shares major components including the engines and transmissions. The car was released to sit above the E-Class but below the S-Class in the Mercedes-Benz range. IVM Automotive actually developed the entire vehicle from the CLS Vision concept on which the CLS is based, to the production version which debuted at the 2004 New York International Auto Show.
Originally presented in Iridium Silver, this CLS 500 is now vinyl wrapped to a high standard in matt Gunmetal Grey. Owned and upgraded by the previous vendor between September 2015 and 2019, works carried out during his tenure included new Bilstein Shocks, air suspension, new drilled discs and pads fitted at 95,000 miles. Our vendor, who purchased the car from Historics in early 2019, has since added an original CLS tilt and slide type sunroof fitted by specialists. This example is fitted with Maxton side skirts, front splitter and boot spoiler in matt black, with matching door mirrors coupled to tinted windows and 20'' matt black 'Ispiri' ISR8 alloy wheels. The car also features an AMG four tail pipe sports exhaust with black badges all round and a custom black front grille completes an aggressive AMG look. The vehicle is presented with a full custom AMG interior with headlining and door cards in Alcantara, AMG front and rear seats, dash, gear surround, AMG sports pedals and foot rest. An abundance of bills supporting works undertaken and services on the car can be found within the history file, which also includes an MoT test certificate valid until June 2021.
