Immense power, engineering masterpiece, unique styling, luxurious interior
Huge running costs, lacks the aura of an Aston or Bentley
At the top of the Mercedes-Benz range you'll find the CL coupe. It sits alongside the S-Class saloon - on which it's based - as the most expensive model you can buy. And feels like it too. The CL600 now tops £100,000 to buy new and means that the CL takes on the likes of Aston Martin and Bentley for the first time. It's not short on anything: the interior is sumptuous, power is immense and it's a huge car capable of carrying four adults.
But it lacks the image of other equally as expensive cars and doesn't feel as special either.
