About This Car
1998 Mercedes-Benz CL500 W140
Onyx Grey Metallic (721U) with Exclusive Grey Leather (518A)
The Mercedes-Benz W140 S Class was a technologically advanced luxury car that moved the goal posts of what a luxury coupe is capable of. It is not that the CL500 was not without equals, but that it’s equals carried significantly higher retail prices. An entirely different beast to the BMW 8 Series, the S Class Coupe was more Rolls Royce than race derived supercar.
This example has come from an astute collector who also owns an exceptional 560 SEC which can currently found in our showroom.
These cars are supremely accomplished machines, technologically and aesthetically. Not only is this an excellent opportunity to acquire a rare and desirable classic Mercedes-Benz, but also to get behind the wheel of a car that can thrill at any speed.
This is not a car without equal… It’s just that the cars that can be classed as equal carry significantly more expensive price tags!

Where will your Mercedes-Benz take you?
Although the R107 is renowned for build quality, there is one chink in the armour - the bulkhead. Many cars that present well from the outside are hiding internal rust. Water from outside the car should drain out through specially designed channels, but over time, these become blocked forcing water inside the car. Once water has breached the blower motor cover in front of the windscreen, it slowly wreaks havoc from inside out. This delicate area did not have rust protection from the factory, and as the metal deteriorates it the water ingress can lead to faulty electrics, damp carpets and musty smells inside the cabin.
All our cars come with a 36 month bulkhead warranty.
