CL-Class 2010-2014
Key facts

  • Since the Benz Mylord Coupé of 1901, Mercedes-Benz has designed and developed some of the world’s most elegantly styled and technically sophisticated Coupés
  • The latest CL-Class saw the arrival of Active Lane Keeping Assist, a groundbreaking safety system that employs a dedicated camera mounted on the inside of the windscreen to monitor road markings and warn the driver should the car inadvertently wander out of its lane
  • In the interior the Mercedes-Benz developers and designers have perfected the CL-Class with great attention to detail, with a choice between four different types of wood, two different leather qualities and five colour combinations
  • When the C 215 CL-Class model series made its debut in 1999, it was the world’s first production car to feature Active Body Control suspension system, which uses 13 sensors to detect body movement and tailors the hydraulic servomechanisms in the Coupé’s active suspension to virtually eliminates body roll, pitch and dive during cornering, accelerating, and braking. In the latest CL 500, the ABC system has been enhanced to counter the destabilising effects of crosswinds – a major safety enhancement
  • The CL 500, priced from £95,525 OTR
  • Powered by a 4.7-litre biturbo V8 engine that develops 435 hp and 700 Nm of torque, the CL 500 achieves 62 mph in just 4.9 seconds
  • The 4.7-litre direct injection forced-induction powerplant is the result of over 4.3 million test miles and an incredible 52,000 hours on the test bench, including 27,000 hours of endurance runs
  • Despite a 12 per cent power hike over its predecessor, the new generation CL 500 combined economy climbs 21 per cent to 29.4 mpg and CO2 emissions have been reduced by 21 percent to 227 g/km
  • The Torque Vectoring Brake ESP® system ensures dynamic stability under even the most extreme driving conditions, by specifically braking the rear wheels without any loss of agility. This agility is heightened by Direct-Steer which uses a variable steering rack ratio for wrist-flick steering responses during enthusiastic driving and a more relaxed steering response when parking and during slow-speed manoeuvres
  • Other safety features include Adaptive Main Beam Assist; Attention Assist; and Pre-Safe® Brake
  • Standard equipment includes: Active Body Control; Adaptive Brake; AirMATIC air suspension; Bluetooth interface; COMAND; Direct Select electronically-operated transmission via a level on the steering column; Direct-Steer; ECO start/stop function; Gracenote music recognition database; Intelligent Light System; Linguatronic voice control system; Media Interface; Memory package for the driver and front passenger seat; Music Register with a 7.2 GB hard disc; Music Search; Parktronic with Parking Guidance; Pre-Safe®; and Torque Vectoring Brake
