2000 Mercedes-Benz C215 CL600 with Grey Leather

Chalcedony Blue (347) with Grey Leather / CL600

Principal Facts:

With the CL, Mercedes-Benz offered the luxury of the S-Class but with fewer doors and dare we say a lot more panache. It would dwarf the SL from that era in terms of size but even measuring more than 5 metres in length, it was never a handful — neither on the move nor when it came to parking it. Launched in 1999, the second-generation CL (C215) was ahead of the curve in terms of tech, engine choices, and ultimate street presence. And one mustn’t forget that with the excellent ride quality it offers, it can still be a very tempting super-powerful coupe that looks great and can be used regularly.

A thoroughly cared-for example of the C215 Mercedes-Benz CL from the year 2000, this is the V12-powered iteration presented in a near exceptional state, complete with a history file, and under 67,000 miles on the clock. The car has five former keepers, a regularly updated MoT record, and most importantly, a bunch of invoices stating the work done on it previously.

Condition Synopsis:

Visually, the car looks ace. The bodywork is free from any major damage or rust, the panels align well (clearly as well as they'd have when the car was new more than two decades ago), and the paint looks good, too. Closer inspection will reveal some blemishes, small scratches, and some stone chips at the front. The interior is evidently well-maintained and still shows how special a flagship coupe's cabin feels. In terms of condition, the cabin appears to have aged well. Some of the plastics/buttons show superficial age-related wear, but the seats, carpet, door cards, and the dashboard, on the whole, are all in good condition. The car comes with a spare wheel and the tool kit, the boot looks clean apart, and other than a rust spot, it looks neat. The driver's seat shows some use-related marks, and as mentioned in the report, the sunroof opens in small increments, and bits like the under-seat storage and sun visors need to be replaced. Under the bonnet and on the underside, the car looks fairly clean, too.

History File:

Registered first in 2000, this is a pre-facelift example of the Mercedes-Benz CL. It has 66,741 miles on the clock. According to the V5C, the current keeper got the car in 2021. The five-former-keeper CL has had a variety of maintenance work done to keep it in great condition. Some recent invoices document a starter motor replacement, gearbox service, oil change, new tyres, etc. The latest MoT is valid till October this year, and comes with a handful of advisories like brake pad wear and engine oil leak.

SLSHOP Summary:

The second-generation CL has a lot to offer, not just in terms of looks and a lush cabin, but also relentless cruising ability and superb ride. It's the two-door version of the S-Class and feels like that, too. This 2000 Mercedes-Benz CL600 is in good nick, it hasn't done too many miles, and with its V12 engine, it's bound to make every drive memorable.

With the increased reliance on hybrid powertrains in modern top-tier luxury cars, the chances of owning a V12 are only getting slimmer, which makes cars like this CL600 even more tempting. Plus it looks far better than a car with more than two decades of age and use ought to, doesn't it?

I have followed SLSHOP with interest for some years now and recently took the plunge and purchased my dream car – they did not disappoint!
The whole experience from start to finish was superb. Their communication was excellent and they kept me
informed every step of the way. Thank you and I look forward to my next purchase!

I have just purchased a 280SL from SLSHOP. I have already purchased several parts from SLSHOP and have found all members of staff most helpful and it is more like dealing with a club than a commercial enterprise I would highly recommend using SLSHOP for cars, parts and most importantly impartial advice.

They put up with my indecision, inexperience and last minute demands and my car is the best thing I’ve ever bought. The most impressive thing about them is the after care though. Nothing is ever too much trouble and they’ve given me the best advice to make sure I get the most out of my car. Can you tell I’m obsessed with them all?
