The CL Class is the coupé derivative of the S Class full size luxury saloon, upon which it shares the same platform. Formerly known as the SEC (Sonderklasse Einspritzmotor Coupé) and later S Coupé. After six years of development, the third generation was officially unveiled at the end of June 2006 and was presented at the 2006 Paris Salon. Like its predecessors, the C216 has no B pillar interrupting the sleek curve of the side windows. The CL 500 boasts the 5.5L V8 powered engine and the class is based on the chassis of the W221 S Class. The two-door coupé weighs 2045 kg, being heavier than the equivalent S saloon, and rides on a full size 116.3 inch wheelbase. The C216 makes use of the Distronic Plus cruise control, which debuted on the 2007 S Class. This system is able to bring the car to a complete stop, and accelerate again to the pre-set speed, to keep a pre-set distance away from the car ahead; being the sister car of the S class these are very popular with long distance travellers due to the opulence and comfort.
This stunning three former keeper example is presented in Germanite Grey with full Sahara Beige leather trim. The car spent its first 13 years in the tenure of the CEO of a large accounting firm as his personal car, and the second owner was a retired engineer who resided locally in the Wentworth estate. It boasts a fully stamped service booklet with supporting invoices including the supplying invoice in 2007 for £92,096 which included £14,000 of optional extras and the passion leather which was £3,880 alone. This Mercedes was originally supplied by Mercedes-Benz Brooklands who serviced the car until Steve Redfearn Motor Company in Wimbledon took over. A fabulous example of the incredibly luxurious and capable mile crunching S-Class coupé; driving is rarely this effortless.
