Hello, Thought I would say hi. Not my first Mercedes, have had a first generation C63 AMG in the past, but a recent purchase was a 2000 CL600 in Almandine Black. The CL is a car I have coveted for quite some time now, but it was always a V12 that I wanted, and always a ‘unique’ colour. A friend of mine told me about this particular car, and I quickly booked in a visit. The owner was a collector of lovely Italian cars and had fallen for the CL in a whim, much as I was about to. It has 98,000 miles but the condition of the car shows it has lead a very privileged existence. It has been put into use as my daily driver and ‘Station Car’, a role it perform, a few obvious faults aside, with aplomb.
