SEE LOCAL CLASSIFIEDS
Mercedes' sporty coupe version of its posh S-Class sedan combines performance and comfort, with ample standard convenience features. The base CL500 is powered by a 302-horsepower 5.0-liter V-8, while the CL600 is fitted with a 493-horsepower 5.5-liter V-12. The high-performance CL55 AMG version comes packed with a 493-horsepower 5.5-liter V-8 engine, while a V-12-equipped CL65 AMG version is new for 2005 and leads the pack with an exhilarating 604 horses. A seven-speed-automatic transmission is standard, along with four-wheel-disc anti-lock brakes, front-side and side-curtain airbags, traction control, Automatic Slip Control, M-B's Electronic Stability Program and a satellite navigation system. Its computer-controlled suspension system keeps the car virtually flat even around the sharpest curves. Among its more-fanciful available options are a Keyless Go entry and starting system, ventilated front seats, a heated steering wheel and front and rear Parktronic proximity sensors.
