    Yep, I saw that a few days ago. Very tempted but its just a bit soon for me to change down from an estate. Small children and stuff etc. I could just buy another and I got permission from swmbo but really I don't need it. Shame as it does look nice.

    Fabulous colours.

    I saw Wildings last year when they had an E350 petrol estate in a light Jewish gold. Not a popular colour over here.

    Seem to specialise in ex-Main Dealer trade ins at slightly warm asking prices.

    CL's are great cars, if your in the market for a very big 2+2

    i know someone who would buy it like a shot, because of those colours, but I won't show it to him because he's currently got nine cars and "he needs to sort himself out!!!"

    IMO as a real-world gentleman's express I'd take the 4.7 over the 6.2. More relaxed and refined, ride the wave of torque.

    The 5.5 is a different story, with a different pricetag.

    Beautiful car in the right colours. It's the 4.7 too.

    Who's going to pull the trigger on this one?

    Me too, and I've only got two cars at the moment, but I don't need a coupe.

    Mind you, if I had convenient parking for a third car, I could probably find a need for a coupe...

    Grief that's nice

    Wiiiide at the back with those arches, but so classy

    Am down there next weekend.....

    But it would need to double up as a hearse if I even went to look at it as SWMBO would kill me.
    Nice upgrade on mine though

    1. Do the deal, drive new car home
    2. Tell SWMBO that it's a courtesy car as yours is in for some work
    3. 3 days later tell her the garage called and they have had an 'incident' and the car is unrepairable
    4. As an apology, you can keep the car you have
    5. You're welcome

    You've not just made that up, that's been brewing for a while.... ;)

    Unfortunately we're all down and with two of the kids and a load of stuff, so we're in the QQ unless it snows

    Nice idea though you bad bad man

    At that price you can only compare it to an 08 or so plate cl63. A remap of the 4.7 will get you to around 500bhp without too much issue and you still have less expensive (lets not say cheaper!) running costs and a newer car. Not that I've thought about it that much...

    Oh my goodness that’s beautiful. My first thought was “oooh if only it was a 63” but my second and lasting thought is “oooh it’s cooler being the 4.7 TT”. The thing I don’t understand is why someone ever sold it...

    Sounds like my twin with the same issues

    Lovely looking car that.

    At that price, it does look very good value for money.

    435bhp seems awfully understressed for a 4.7 twin turbo. 500bhp would seem like an easy remap
