Lot details

Registration No: LF08 UMT
Chassis No: WDD2163762A003991
MOT: June 2024

  • Only one former keeper from new
  • Just over 46,000 miles from new at the time of consignment
  • Rare and desirable 5.5-litre V12 Bi-Turbo engine variant
  • Recent expenditure of £2,800 in the last year

The CL Class is the Coupé derivative of the S Class full-size luxury saloon, upon which it shares the same platform, it was formerly known as the SEC (Sonderklasse Einspritzmotor Coupé) and latterly the S Coupé. After six years of development, the third generation was officially unveiled at the end of June, 2006, and was presented at the 2006 Paris Salon. Like its predecessors, the C216 has no B pillar interrupting the sleek curve of the side windows. C216 is offered in four models, each with its own engine and transmission, the 5.5L V8-powered CL 500; the high-performance 6.2L V8-powered CL 63 AMG; the ultra-luxury twin-turbo 5.5L V12-powered CL 600; and lastly the CL 65 AMG with a twin-turbo 6.0L V12 engine. The C216 makes use of the Distronic Plus cruise control, which debuted on the 2007 S-Class. This system is able to bring the car to a complete stop, and accelerate again to the pre-set speed, to keep a pre-set distance away from the car ahead of it. This Mercedes-Benz CL has also debuted with the new Active NightVision program that enables drivers to view the conditions in front of the car despite the dark surroundings.

This flagship CL600 is presented in Metallic Silver with a contrasting leather trim. Offered with a comprehensive service history, this example was originally registered and serviced in Ireland and brought into the UK in 2017. It was serviced in January, 2022, at Mercedes-Benz Chelsea at 45,127 miles where the odometer was programmed to run in miles rather than kilometres that it displayed previously. The vendor (who is a vehicle trader) purchased the car in 2022 and has completed £2800 worth of work which included a new fan, thermostat, water pump and a fresh MOT.

There are a total of seven service stamps and the car comes with its original Mercedes leather wallet with documents. These Coupés are renowned for their opulence and ability to eat up mileage and with the V12 engine and such low mileage, this example is certainly impressive.
