Overview Information

Mercedes-Benz has a long history in luxury coupes that dates back to the early 1950's. Each generation of coupes have been on the cutting edge of luxury, technology, and performance. The CL-Class is all-new for 2007. The new CL 550 and CL 600 coupes have more power and luxury features than their well-equipped predecessors. The V-8 powered CL 550 has an ample 382-bhp, while the V-12 CL 600 has an even more generous 510-bhp. Bold, aggressive styling visually separates the CL from other Mercedes-Benz vehicles, and resembles no current Mercedes-Benz. As the flagship luxury coupe from Mercedes, the CL offers a dizzying variety of trim options. For instance, there are three types of leather upholstery, matched with black ash/burl walnut (CL 550) or poplar wood (CL 600), special designo seats (CL 600), wood/leather steering wheel (CL 600), upgraded leather interior (CL 600), Alcantara headliner (CL 600), and aluminum interior switches and controls. The new CL redefines Mercedes-Benz styling. There is no denying the understated power and grace of this stunning coupe. In the stratospheric $100K+ coupe market, the CL retains its status as the benchmark in its class.

What Changed:

Bold, aggressive styling visually separates the CL from other Mercedes-Benz vehicles, and resembles no current Mercedes-Benz.
