Mercedes-Benz CL 600

The CL class has a very long list of available features, all of which are sure to be a hit with drivers. The following features come standard on the CL models: climate control, full air suspension, all-leather interior, wood trim, trip computer, CD player, navigation system, front heated seats, power moon roof, power doors, and of course, trunk closing assist. Optional features, as if any more are needed, include a heated steering wheel and voice-activated telephone, as well as front fan-cooled seats. A heated steering wheel has got to be the greatest invention since sliced bread. Further, elite 'designo' packages are also available for the true test of luxury. These packages add custom color metallic paint, custom color leather interior and exotic wood trims. This is more like riding along in a formal dining room, and less like riding in an automobile. They are available in three variants: designo Cashmere, designo Espresso and designo Silver. All of which would certainly look very graceful and stylish. Also, in the European markets, there was even an optional granite trim that took the place of wood. This was for reasons unknown never available in the United States although had it been, it would have been a great hit. As with all major German manufacturers with the exception of Porsche, Mercedes limits their cars to 155 mph. So therefore, one would be limited in how fast they made it to work in this regard. But, that is still considerably above the speed limit, and above any speed that would be regarded as safe on the roadway. What then is the justification for having two models with the same power? It seems that the CL 55 AMG is sportier and more responsive, while the CL 600 is more luxurious with a smoother ride. The CL 65 AMG is made to order in very small numbers, and is the most powerful CL to date.
