This 2003 Mercedes-Benz CL55 AMG was originally delivered to Mercedes-Benz of Southampton, NY and is finished Capri Blue Metallic (359) over Java (284) Exclusive Leather interior. This pillarless coupe remained with its original owner in New York from 2002 until 2021 when it was acquired by seller. The car is powered by a supercharged 5.4-liter V8 paired with a five-speed automatic transmission. Equipment includes 18″ AMG wheels, Active Body Control, a glass sunroof, Keyless-Go, heated and ventilated multi-contour front seats, automatic climate control, and COMAND infotainment. This example is accompanied by a Vehicle Master Inquiry (VMI) report and touts 57 dealer service visits on the attached Carfax report. This CL55 AMG now shows 91,890 miles and is offered in New Jersey by the current owner with two keys, an owner’s manual, dealer service records, a clean Carfax report, and a clean NJ title in the seller’s name.
The car is finished in Capri Blue Metallic (359) and features sculpted bumpers and side skirts as part of the AMG styling package as well as xenon headlights with washers, a glass sunroof, and quad exhaust outlets. The Carfax report shows no history of accidents or other damage and the paintwork is believed to be all original. Detailed photos of the exterior are viewable in the gallery showing rock ships and a scrape on the front bumper.
Factory 18″ twin-spoke AMG alloy wheels wear Continental ContiProContact tires measuring 255/40 up front and 285/35 in the rear with 2016 date codes. Slight curb rash is visible on the wheels as displayed in the gallery. According to the VMI, the car received new front brake rotors and pads less than 10k miles ago in 2016.
The cabin is trimmed in Java (284) exclusive leather interior with matching carpets, and burred walnut root veneer accents the center stack and door panels. Amenities include Keyless-Go, heated and ventilated multi-contour front seats, cruise control, dual-zone automatic climate control, a rear sun shade, a Mercedes-branded Motorola V60 integrated mobile phone, and COMAND infotainment.
A multifunction steering wheel frames a 200-mph speedometer, a tachometer, and auxiliary gauges. The digital odometer indicates 91,890 miles, of which approximately 3k have been added by the seller.
The supercharged 5.4-liter M113 V8 was factory-rated at 493 horsepower and 516 lb-ft of torque and sends power to the rear wheels through a five-speed AMG Speedshift automatic transmission. According to the VMI, the car received a transmission flush and service in 2020, replacement of the blower motor and the spark plugs/coil packs in 2018, a new oil pump/ABC tandem pump and secondary air pump in 2009, new front ABC spring strut and supporting lower ball joint in 2008, and a new ABC high pressure distribution hose in 2007.
The September 2021 Carfax shows no damage or other accidents, with registration exclusive to New York and numerous dealer service visits since new.
It’s easy to discern when a car has lived a pampered existence… and mileage has precisely nothing to do with it. This example touts mileage in the 90k range and, as an aging AMG, that might initially deter some sub-par sleuths. But look to the details on this car and you’ll see the clues that matter. This car was purchased new at Mercedes-Benz of Southampton, NY and serviced VERY regularly between Mercedes-Benz Southampton and Mercedes-Benz of Manhattan. Ordered in perhaps the classiest spec possible for a C215 AMG, this car screams all the right notes to tell you it was serviced with an open checkbook its entire life. That original owner enjoyed and maintained this classy coupe from 2002 until just this year. That nearly 20-year ownership history racked up 50+ dealer service visits and you can be sure that the owner wasn’t skimping on service costs while barreling this car down the Long Island Expressway to his weekend home in the Hamptons from the Upper East Side. The VMI doesn’t lie – so the service history is supremely stout on this super coupe. But beyond even that, reading between the lines on this pampered pillarless powerhouse tells the tale of an excellent, well-loved machine that’s as WASP-ily well-worn as a 20-year-old pair of Belgian Shoes or custom Stubbs. The smart money is a buyer on this one...
