2002 Mercedes-Benz CL-Class CL600 2dr Coupe (5.8L 12cyl 5A)
Unbelievable combination of performance, build quality, and style. Unlike other German cars, this one really has flair and more just a grudging acknowledgment that style needs to be there as well. Coming out of Jaguars, this has been the only MB in quite a while that could actually be termed sensuous. Performance is truly iron fist in velvet glove - unassuming, but very big performance envelope when called upon.
ABC needs to be experienced to be believed, attention to detail truly amazing and borders on overkill in some areas, trick rear headrests.
Has to be a way to get around the brake dust issue in German cars.
