There's a lot to love about these big coupes but most of all, Mercedes-Benz managed to maintain the heritage and emotion of their S Class coupe while ensuring 21st century relevance. Through the use of both aluminum and magnesium, the C215 managed to shed 500 lbs of weight while maintaining its iconic pillarless design. This example comes equipped with a set of aftermarket wheels, which wear a very period-correct chrome finish, along with a Brembo big brake kit and a Super Sprint exhaust. As a bonus, the seller is throwing in the factory wheels and tires, and full exhaust with the sale so you can revert back to stock if wanted. The recent service by the seller ensures that the car is prepped and ready for it's new owner. Showing just 83k miles from new, this C215 offers a great opportunity to channel your inner Paul Wall in your new Midnight Blue CL Mercedes.
