2008 Mercedes-Benz CL 500

(Photos provided by seller) 


• Full service history 
• AMG Bodykit
• Recent major service and new brakes all round



The CL500 uses the same chassis and advanced technology as the range topping S-Class Mercedes and it is very well equipped with a host of clever features and advanced electronics such an Advanced Body Control system which keeps the car nice and flat during cornering.

Many refer to the CL range as a two-door version of the S Class, for those who want all the features and comfort of the S-Class, but prefer the look and size of the stylish pillar-less Grand Tourer Coupe.

First registered on 31/12/2008 the current owner bought the car back in 2015 with 2 previous owners and 40,000 on the clock. It has a full Mercedes Service History and a full AMG Bodykit with AMG Quad Square Exhausts and the AMG63 front grill. Used sparingly over his 7 years of ownership when not in use it was kept in an Air Conditioned Garage and regularly serviced.

The last service and MOT were done in 2018, since which time it has only covered around 500 miles, but the car will be sold with a new full years MOT. At the last service it also had new brake discs and pads all round.

The Interior

Inside the CL500 there’s plenty of black leather and wood to help give the car that special luxury look and feel which is guaranteed to make you very comfortable behind the wheel. The whole interior is fresh and clean and in a very good and presentable condition, with only the driver’s seat showing any real signs of use.

Bristling with features and creature comforts such as Automatic Air Conditioning, electric Memory Driver seat/Steering column and mirrors, power opening and closing boot, Multi-function steering wheel, Speedtronic Cruise Control, Glass Electric Tilt and Sliding Sunroof with Sliding Sunshade, Rear Window Blind, Power folding mirrors, Park-Assist front and rear, intelligent Bi-Xenon lighting, ESP and ABS.

The Exterior

The Obsidian Black Metallic paintwork and AMG Bodykit is in excellent overall condition with no marks, scratches or dents to be found and, the recently powder-coated AMG Wheels finish the car off very nicely indeed, although they do have the odd mark but nothing too serious.

All the lights are clear and free from any cracks and the tyres are part worn but all perfectly serviceable.

The Mechanics 

This CL500 has obviously been very well cared for and benefitted from regular servicing with Mercedes. The owner informs us that everything is working on the car and that it drives as a cL500 should, effortlessly and precisely.

It’s had a new front windscreen, brakes, spark plugs and coils at its last service so it should be ready to go.

The Appeal 

The 5.5 litre V8 engine and the super-smooth 7G-tronic automatic gearbox provide plenty of performance if required and the sharp looks of the Coupe with the AMG Bodykit and Black wheels really make it look a very special and enticing car.

It’s an impressive and very capable luxury GT that offers a refined driving experience in that very inimitable Mercedes style.

About Max Bids

The max bid process allows you to bid without any hassle.
Enter your maximum bid and we will then bid on your behalf to ensure you're the highest bidder - just enough to keep you in the lead and only up until your maximum.


C&C prevent auction snipers from bidding in the last seconds to win an auction.
Auctions are extended by 5-minutes if anyone bids within the last 2 minutes to allow other bidders to react and counter-bid.

Auto-bidding increments

  • If your maximum bid is equal to or below the reserve price, your maximum bid will be applied in full if you are the highest bidder.
  • If you are the highest bidder and place a maximum bid above the reserve, we will automatically put in the reserve as your first bid.
    • Once the reserve has been met, Car & Classic will make sure you are the highest bidder using only the bidding increments stated below.
    • We will keep you in the lead up until your maximum bid OR the increment closest to your maximum bid, providing your maximum bid is enough to cover the increment value.

Bid Amount Increment
£0 to £10,000 £100.00
£10,000 to £50,000 £250.00
£50,000+ £500.00

Automatically outbid immediately

When you place a max bid and are outbid immediately that means that another bidder has placed a max bid limit which is higher than yours.
You can bid again and we will use our automatic bid system to try and get you as the highest bidder.

Matching max bids

When there are two max bids of the same value, the one placed first remains the lead bidder.
