This car is a big, heavy ride with “I’ve made it” written across the sides.
Roll up in one of these, and people will assume corner office. That’s because when it was new, the CL600 cost around $120k. Today, you can find one for $20,000 or less with between 60,000 and 90,000 miles.
Similar to the Ferrari, upkeep on this car can be pricey, especially considering the mileage. But you cannot make more of a statement for the price of a family sedan.
This Benz is powered by an ultra-smooth V-12 engine, and comes with the quality and styling expected from the German luxury brand. Motor Trend said it might be the best car in the world in 2005 — and that was three years after it was initially released.
You cannot tell this car’s age based on its body; the sleek design fits in as well today as it did eight years ago. The portrait of class.
