This 2004 Mercedes-Benz CL55 AMG is finished in Pewter Metallic (723) over Stone (288) Exclusive Leather interior and shows 43,547 miles. The car was sold new in Florida and shows previous registration in Tennessee prior to its acquisition by the selling dealer in California. Power is provided by a supercharged 5.4-liter V8 paired with a five-speed AMG Speedshift automatic transmission. Dealer services are documented on the Carfax report through 2019, and both left and right valve cover gaskets as well as the accessory drive belt were replaced in preparation for the sale. This CL55 is offered by the selling dealer in California with manufacturer's literature, a clean Carfax report, and a clean Florida title.
The car is finished in Pewter Metallic (723), and the CL55 AMG styling package includes sculpted side skirts and valances, lower ride height, unique badging, and a quad-outlet exhaust system. Paintwork appears to be all original according to the selling dealer and the front spoiler is free from scrapes or cracks.
Factory staggered 18″ AMG wheels are mounted with Continental ExtremeContact tires measuring 255/45 up front and 275/40 out back. Front eight-piston calipers are shared with the contemporary S600, and the brake discs are vented and cross-drilled at all four corners. The CL55 AMG utilizes Mercedes’ Active Body Control (ABC) suspension, which can be adjusted electronically from inside the cabin. The selling dealer reports that the system is performing as expected with no sagging visible; even with the car sitting for long periods of time.
The cabin is upholstered in Stone Exclusive Leather (288) with chestnut trim on the center stack and door panels. The front multi-contour seats are both heated and cooled, and other equipment includes COMAND infotainment with navigation, Harman-Kardon Logic 7 surround sound, and an electric rear roller blind.
The supercharged 5.4L M113 V8 was factory rated at 493 horsepower and 516 lb-ft of torque. Power is sent to the rear wheels via a five-speed AMG Speedshift automatic transmission. Dealer services are documented on the Carfax report through 2019, and in preparation for sale, the selling dealer performed a general inspection and replaced both left and right valve cover gaskets as well as the accessory drive belt.
The provided Carfax report shows no history of accidents or other damage, and lists ownership in Florida and Tennessee through early 2020. This CL55 AMG is offered with factory literature, manuals, and a clean Florida title.
The secret is out – and has been for a long time – that the C215 AMG coupes are tremendous values in the collector Mercedes marketplace. While prices previously stagnated on these big-bodied grand touring gems for years, recent price trends show a sharp increase in appreciation by collectors and drivers alike. And there’s good cause for the shift in focus: with elegant, pillarless coupe lines and bulletproof M113K supercharged power, these brilliant beasts made an appropriate swan song for Bruno Sacco’s last Mercedes-Benz coupe design. Once formerly maligned by fears of ABC-induced bankruptcy, time has shown that a properly maintained, low-mile C215 can be owned and enjoyed without panic of a five-figure repair bill; as a properly serviced ABC system can be surprisingly robust with proper pampering. Thus, the market has followed suit and low-mileage, well-maintained examples such as this won’t be budget-friendly for long. If you’ve ever wanted a supercharged, AMG flagship coupe, now is the time to act before prices accelerate further.
