About the CL-Class

Making up a line of tourers, the Mercedes-Benz CL-Class was sold between the years 1992 and 2014. ‘CL’ stands for ‘coupe leicht’ or ‘coupe light’ for the English speaking. Introduced as Mercedes premier model, it takes its inspiration from the S-Class saloon and subsequently was built upon the same platform.

A modern-looking car for the time, the CL-Class was both sleek and angular, and, designed by Bruno Sacco, it had a M119 5-liter V8 engine (which was considered one of the best engines created by Mercedes by numerous reviews).

After a successful first generational run from 1992 – 1999, the second generation came out in 2000. This newer model had a shorter wheelbase and was much more similar to the W210 and W211 E-Class. Four variant models were sold, V8 CL 500, V8 CL55 AMG, 2000 NA CL 55 AMG F1 (only 55 ever made) and another limited edition 6-liter V12 CL65 AMG of which 196 were sold.

The newer models had amazing technology when compared to other cars of the early 2000s, Mercedes-Benz installed active body control, active suspension, CPU-controlled corner driving, climate control, leather upholstery, a trip computer, CD, satellite navigation, heated seats, moonroof and even a voice activate factory fitted phone system. All these features would cement the CL's reputation as Mercedes-Benz’s premier vehicle.

The extremely rare 2000 CL 55 AMG F1 edition was created as a tribute to the safety cars used in formula one, these production vehicles demanded a high price and elevated the CL-Class even further.

From 2006, the third generation went into production, this car had a sharp sloping back and, aggressive styling and a fully aerodynamic design. An interesting technical installation was Mercedes’ inbuilt pre-set distance to keep the vehicle a safe distance from the car in front automatically.
