The CL-Class is the name given to a series of grand tourers manufactured by the German automaker Mercedes.

First manufactured in 1992 and lasting up until 2014, the moniker ‘CL’ is an initialism for ‘coupe leicht’ or coupe light, for the English-speaking.

As Mercedes's premier model, the CL-Class is a derivative of the S-Class saloon and as such is built upon the same platform.

Initial models kept the same shape for 7 years and had the typical Mercedes styling of the time, angular edges with a sleek side profile.

Designed by Bruno Sacco, and Italian car designer born on 12th November 1933, the CL-Class had a powerful M119 5-liter V8 engine and was widely considered the best engine that Mercedes had produced up until that point.

Second generations went on sale in 2000 and had a slightly shorter run than its predecessor, lasting up until 2006. With a shorter wheelbase, the CL-Class shared similarities with the Mercedes W210 and W211 E-Class.

Four models were manufactured, V8 CL 500, V8 CL55 AMG, 2000 NA CL55 AMG F1 and a 6-liter V12 CL65 AMG. Of the four, the last two were limited editions, with 55 units sold of the 2000 NA CL55 AMG F1 and 196 of the 6-liter V12 CL65 AMG manufactured.

Displaying advanced excellent technologies, the CL-Class had active body control, active suspension, a modernized onboard CPU capable of controlling corners, a trip computer, a fully leather interior, climate control, CD player, satellite navigation, heated seats, moon roof and a voice activated phone system.

By the third generation, the styling had changed completely, with sloping sleek lines, these new cars were barely recognizable from their original predecessor. As one would expect, advanced technology was installed to maintain its reputation of a premium model, not least the ability to keep a safe distance from the car in front dependent upon the speed at which the vehicle is traveling.

Alternatives available to the CL-Class at this point were the Audi A7 Sportback or the BMW 6 Series Gran Turismo.

In 2015, Mercedes retired the CL-Class and would replace it with the C217 S-Class Coupe.
