Purchased As Used
I bought this car used and so far it is incredible. It can go from 0-30 in under 4 seconds. But best of all from 50-100 in the blink of an eye. This car can pass any car on the road with ease. IT drives like a dream. Once you drive this car no other car even comes close. My Ferrari was fun but was not a joy to drive. The cl65 is my daily driver and is a pleasure to drive.
Maintenance is really not that bad for this type of vehicle. My Ferrari costs $7,500 everytime I took it to the shop, The CL65 has averaged about $2,000 per year in repair bills. I should not even say repair. It was actually maintenance costs. The only actual repair I had was a ball joint.
The car has the speed of a Ferrari and the reliability of a Mercedes. If you are going to buy a used one. Just have it checked out by a dealership first. So you have no surprises.
One irradiation I have with the vehicle is sometimes it takes a few pushes of the button to start it. The dealership could not find an issue. But every now and then I push the start button and it just clicks. Then after a few times it starts.
Barring that issue. The car is a 10 to own and drive. I think the people that complain about the cost to own this car may ave not been able to afford it to begin with. This is a hand crafted V12 twin turbo engine. Maintain it and you can get 300K from the engine and transmission with ease....read morehide

- Serious Horsepower, Great lines, Awesome torque
- Horrible Gas mileage, Little pricey
I was having a hard time deciding between this and the Bentley Continental GT. I test drove both. The Bentley has it beat in comfort but thats about it. The cl 65 is fast , real fast. This thing will eat ferraris and porsches for lunch. I really enjoy this car.
