LIKE NEW CL65 AMG, $186K ORIG STICKER, 6.0L TWIN TURBO V12, 604 HP, AMAZING!!
What you're seeing here is the baddest machine Mercedes-Benz was building in 2005 at a shockingly affordable price. With a twin-turbo V12, sinister black paint job, and all the luxury features you could wish for, this is the car that does it all. Don't quibble over the price; if you're a player, this car should be in your garage.
With just 16,220 miles on the odometer and legendary Mercedes-Benz build quality, this is pretty much a new car. Forget for a moment that it's celebrating its tenth birthday and instead realize that when it was new, the price tag was more than three times what it is today. The car is still just as fast, just as beautiful, just as intimidating, it's just tens of thousands of dollars cheaper. Cool, right? The inky black paint shows you what a six-figure price tag ($186K to be exact) would buy you and as an AMG model, it got the blackout treatment to really make it stand out. The arching hardtop styling has aged well and this car still looks like nothing else on the road and if you want to push lesser traffic out of the way, just come pounding up in this sinister black hammer and watch them scatter. There are very few signs of use, only a few dings on the low-hanging chin spoiler, but otherwise it exemplifies Mercedes-Benz's commitment to excellence everywhere you look. With just a few flashes of chrome, the most important being those 'V12 BITURBO' emblems, this car is the epitome of good taste.
The interior is, of course, black leather, and it, too, looks like it should be sitting in the showroom. A total time warp, even the driver's seat fails to show any appreciable wear. That's real wood trim, not plastic, and the quality is tangible in everything you can see or touch. Mercedes was shaking off its staid, conservative look, so you get a swoopy dash full of informative gauges, grippy bucket seats, and a list of features as long as your arm. The list includes automatic climate control, power seats, locks, mirrors, and windows, a power sunroof, a power sun shade for the panoramic rear window, navigation system, and a power tilt/telescope wheel that makes it quite easy to get comfortable behind it. Everything works like it should (this is a Mercedes, after all) and if you want to feel like a grown-up, just try driving this car to work every day and watch what happens. There's a reasonably spacious back seat and a good-sized trunk, making this Autobahn-stormer the ultimate road trip machine.
Most of that is due to the twin-turbo 6.0 liter V12 engine making 604 horsepower and 738 pounds of torque. That's the kind of torque that makes fighter pilots jealous and puts everything within reach. Small gap up ahead? No problem. Pesky kid in a Camaro next to you? Goodbye. The effect is addicting, as if you're attached to a giant recoiling rubber band and it feels like it could accelerate forever. Of course, when you're just trundling around, it's docile and invisible and the 5-speed automatic transmission is smooth and unobtrusive. The suspension was worked over by the AMG wizards, too, so it's compliant but competent and the brakes are truly massive. Custom black chrome AMG wheels were part of the package and look awesome wrapped in 19-inch Michelin performance rubber.
With just two owners, a clean CarFax, and full factory documentation, this incredible AMG hammer represents mammoth bang for the buck. Call today!
