2005 Mercedes-Benz CL65 AMG: An Expensive Detail

February 12, 2014

2005 Mercedes-Benz CL65 AMG

There are plenty of examples of "expensive things" on this car. The over-the-top V12 engine, the Active Body Control suspension and the heated/air conditioned/massaging seats to name just a few.

But every time I get in this car I can't help but notice the chrome door finishers you see above. They're such an old school touch, mainly because they're entirely unnecessary and probably not all that light. Normal cars never have anything this extravagant, but on a car like this they fit right in.
