The Big Boy Coupe

2003 Mercedes-Benz CL-Class CL600 2dr Coupe (5.5L 12cyl Turbo 5A)


My 2003 CL600 is a rocket. I know many will say the CL55 may be a better car, but one was not available at my dealership so i took the V12 600. The torque is scary. Even with the ESP on the car breaks loose without hardly any pressure on the gas pedal. The power is so prevelant that even after releasng your foot from the accelerator the car still forges forward from built up power. Now this may seem like a bad thing but you get used to it and it is a rush. I drove an SL55 and it too was fast but did not seem to have the overall power of the CL600. The torque is just under 600 lb ft on the 600. An amazing car driving experience.

Best Features

The raw power.

Worst Features

I would not change a thing about the car. The ABC makes it handle much better than i had expected. It's a large coupe but handles like a much s,aller car. It's no Porsche on handling but MB did an amazing job with the suspension
