Body style: Coupé (two-door)
Segment: Premium Coupe

Not only have the blokes over at Mercedes-Benz practically invented the coupe-class but they have endowed it with outrageous features.

Such is the case with the CL, especially the 600 model, built on an S-Klasse sourced platform. Smaller and leaner, this particular model is powered by a V12 which not only holds you in your seat when throttled but also delivers a painstaking punch to your internal organs. Powerful and refined with a finely crafted interior emphasized by multiple steering wheel, console and door wood-insertions, the CL is a must-have speeding beauty. It even comes with a pneumatic close-door assist mechanism and a low 0.30 drag coefficient.
