I never tire of rare and unique colors. Combine that with a rare and unique vehicle? Even better. This is a 2014 Mercedes-Benz E63 S AMG Estate in the color Dolomite Brown Metallic. Sometimes it looks brown, sometimes it looks purple and even at the right light you might even mistake it for a burnt orange. Either way, I love the color. But I don’t exactly love it on this car. Let me explain why.
Earlier this week I checked out a green V12 Mercedes-Benz. Keeping with that theme, I bring you another green V12 Mercedes-Benz — although this one has quite a bit more horsepower and even more torque. This 2004 CL600 with the 5.5 liter twin-turbo M275 V12 spit out a more than adequate 493 horsepower and 590 lb·ft of torque. What is even crazier is that Mercedes sandbagged the horsepower number by about 40 to 50 as to not cannibalize CL55 AMG sales. Of course, we as humans can’t leave well enough alone, so a quick call to the crazy Danes at Kleeman took these power numbers to a whole other level.
Engine: 5.5 liter V12
Transmission: 5-speed automatic
Mileage: 62,000 mi
After a good year, I think it’s time to move on from my much enjoyed CL. It’s definitely the quietest, most comfortable car I’ve ever driven. It has 62,000 miles and has been well maintained and always garage kept. I wasn’t sure what the previous owner had done for maintenance, so within the past 5000 miles it’s had;
-The transmission fluid and filter changed
-ABC fluid and filter change
-Power steering fluid and filter change
-New spark plugs and insulators
In terms of repairs, it has had a few.
-New water pump
-Rear valve block repair
-Shifter after it got stuck in park
-Replaced Bose amp with a new one
-New auxiliary cooling fan
This car is in absolutely beautiful condition, the Everest Green paint has a depth you wouldn’t believe. The green paint and tan interior are a classic color combination you just don’t see enough anymore. As far as faults go, the car has only two. The soft close on the driver’s door doesn’t work, and neither does the lock button on the exterior handle.
Ever see a certain car and say to yourself “I didn’t know they made those in that color”? Well, today is one of those cars. The R230 SL65 AMG is already famous for its extreme amount of power and its potential for costing an extreme amount of money on maintenance and repairs. With this specific SL65 for sale in Florida you are getting a one-of-one color in Ferrari Giallo Modena and some extra goodies from the madmen at RENNtech.

This is a beautiful piece of art on wheels. The car is amazingly fast yet still comfortable to drive everyday. The car was the only car to be painted this color yellow at the factory. It has been well cared for and garage kept in air conditioning. All maintenance has been regularly done at the dealer. Also included are the wheels that were taken off. They were custom painted to match the car. They have some age on them and will need to be repainted. If you want them they will go with the car.
Paint Code: FER 4305 Giallo Modena
The person who ordered this car is the same kind of person who goes to the self-serve frozen yogurt place and gets all the toppings just because they can. It wasn’t enough just to spend the $185,000 on the basic car (which isn’t particularly basic).…
