A superb example of a late W140 coupé finished in Brilliant Silver with grey leather. 84,052 miles from new backed up by full service history.
Supplied new by Falcon of Loughborough, this CL420 was comprehensively equipped with Parktronic, wood/leather steering wheel, rear blind, heated memory seats (driver’s orthopaedic) along with all the usual luxuries these flagship coupés came with. The full list of options is below.
The car was looked after by Falcon until 2002 when it was sold to a gentleman in London who kept the car 15 years until 2017. During his ownership the car was looked after exclusively by Klasse of Fulham. We have just serviced the car (including coolant and brake fluid changes) and there are 19 stamps in the book along with a large folder of supporting receipts. So this is a car with a fantastic service history. Supplied by ourselves to its last two owners and we are very pleased to be able to offer it again.
Immaculate condition throughout with superb paintwork, unmarked wheels and a beautiful interior, free from the usual wear and tear. The car drives exceptionally well and feel very fresh and tight.
Being a late 140 coupé, badged as a CL, it benefits from all the improvements made to the model during its life. These include coil-pack ignition, a five-speed automatic gearbox, parking sensors and, importantly, revised engine wiring harnesses.
Good 140 coupés are now rare cars and less than 100 CL420s show as being on the road. They were Mercedes high water mark of quality and a showcase for their technology. Whilst divisive at the time due to their size, they are for many the last true Mercedes of the ‘engineered at any cost’ era. Even today they are incredibly refined and a delight to drive.
In summary, A superb late CL with a sensible mileage, long term ownership, complete history and in fantastic condition.
