What's the used Mercedes CL coupe like?

For those who don't need the space of an S-Class and fancy something a lot more exclusive, the Mercedes CL coupe is just the ticket.

It's based on the contemporary S-Class platform, so the ride is cushioningly comfortable, but the CL can also handle twisting country roads and is refreshingly nimble for such a large car. The V8 and V12 engines are silky smooth and powerful, especially the awesome 604bhp twin-turbo V12 in the CL65 AMG.

The dash is much the same as an S-Class's of the same vintage, so it's laid out logically and tastefully, while the front passengers enjoy superb comfort and space. There's room for a couple of adults in the back, but no more as the seats are sculpted for two only, and the large boot easily copes with a couple of sets of golf clubs.
