1998 Mercedes-Benz CL600 7.0 AMG

If you are feeling déjà vu, you are on to something. Last month I checked out a 1998 Mercedes-Benz S600 7.0 AMG and now a month later, we have the brother 1998 CL600 7.0 AMG. It is probably safe to assume these both came out of the same collection, and believe it or not, this one checks in with over 100,000 kilometers on the odometer. Long live the M120!

Introducing the AMG S600L 7.0 V12. AMG Dealer Vehicle Brilliant Silver I don’t think it is necessary to explain to those who understand. 7.0 in this state may not come out anymore. There is also a sedan.

Everything that was said about the previous S600, I can pretty much repeat for this coupe. It is unbelievably period-correct with all the fine details and I love that someone actually drove this thing a fair amount. I suppose the only question is, do you want the sedan or the coupe? Personally, I love the sedan, but it is tough to say that this isn’t the best-looking C140 I’ve come across.

As far as price, my guess is it is easily over $100,000. These are extremely rare and only growing in demand. If you have the cash, then be my guest, but goodness is that a lot of money.

  1. Love the wood in this one. And good for somebody actually putting some miles on it. Very cool.

  2. Any pre-merger AMG is special but these big bore V12s are amazing. I wish I could come to grips with the styling of the 140 generation. I know they are legendary for build quality but the styling of the coupe is brutal. Even the pre-facelift sedan is ugly. These insect-like coupes are such a departure from the elegant 560SEC.

  3. Well if it too much $ Get a Late model JAG XJR Probably nearly as quick nice interior Aluminum body better handling 1/4 of the price whats not to like

  4. Peter, you are completely missing the point. The Jag is nothing compared to the W140. The driving experiences don’t even come close to comparing. There’s a reason the Jag is only a fraction of the price.

  5. Ricky, you are completely missing the point. The 2009-2014 Jaguar XKR is far better looking (designed by Ian Callum and it looks like an Aston Martin DB7, DB9 designed by him as well), all aluminum construction with a RIPPING 510-575hp supercharged V8. The XKR is on the sporty end of the Luxury GT spectrum whereas the CL600 is on the Luxo-barge end of it. The AJV8 has proven to be FAR more reliable and cheaper to maintain than any Mercedes V12. I love me some Mercedes CL600 but it’s a heavy, soft cruiser that can also crush the Autobahn at over 180 mph. If given a choice it’s XKR all day.
