The W140 generation coupes were sleek but hard-lined and ran from 1992-1998. Though the coupe's physical appearance changed little over these years, the class underwent a name change several times. The V8 and V12 coupes were called the 500 SEC and 600 SEC, respectively, in 1992 till 1994. The 600 SEC was the first V12 coupe ever offered by Mercedes-Benz. From 1994, the model names were changed to the S 500 Coupé and the S 600 Coupé. The name CL was adopted in 1997, and the W140 coupés were called the CL 500 and CL 600. Production ended in March 1998. The CL 500 was considered by most experts to be the best model in terms of power, weight distribution and equipment. The M119 5.0 L V8 engine was considered one of the best engines ever produced by the German manufacturer and being much lighter at the front, the CL 500 tended to have better handling characteristics than the heavier V12 flagship.
