"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. 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 luxury Mercedes-Benz gives S-Class equipment with coupé looks and pillarless lines. Powered by a 5.0 litre V8, this epitome of German engineering presents in metallic silver with a black leather interior. Contained within the history file for this car is the V5C registration document, a stamped service book, and a fresh MoT test certificate. Offered to auction without reserve, these large engine Mercedes’ represent a lot of car and a future classic at a fraction of its original cost."
