Lot 211 - 2008 Mercedes-Benz CL600
|Odometer reading||45,500 miles|
|Estimate||£14,000 - £20,000|
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. W216 is offered in four models, each with its own engine and transmission, the 5.5L V8-powered CL 500 the high-performance 6.2L V8-powered CL 63 AMG the ultra-luxury twin-turbo 5.5L V12-powered CL 600 and, lastly, the CL 65 AMG with a twin-turbo 6.0L V12 engine. 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 of it. This Mercedes-Benz CL has also debuted with the new Active NightVision program that enables drivers to view the conditions in front of the car despite the dark surroundings.
This flagship CL600 is presented in Metallic Silver with a contrasting leather trim. Offered with a comprehensive service history, this example was originally registered and serviced in Ireland and brought into the UK in 2017. It was recently serviced in January 2022 at Mercedes-Benz Chelsea at 45,127. These Coupés are renowned for their opulence and ability to eat up mileage and with the V12 engine and such low mileage, this example is certainly impressive.
