"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. 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 CL600 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.
This red CL500 with beige leather interior has been well cared for. The car is offered with a good Mercedes-Benz and specialist service history and an MoT test certificate valid until April 2019. With just two former owners, this luxury Mercedes gives S-Class luxury with coupé looks and pillar-less lines. Powered by a 5.0 litre V8 and offered at no reserve, this is a lot of car for very little investment and a sure future favourite."
