    Recalls

     

    Mercedes recalled the 2007 C216 CL-Class to replace a defective driver’s side Signal Acquisition Module (SAM), which can cause numerous electrical malfunctions. In 2008, Mercedes recalled C216 models equipped with the Active Body Control (ABC) suspension, to replace the front axle body acceleration sensors, which can short out and impair driving stability.

  • MODEL HISTORY

    Model History

     

    The C216 2007-2014 Mercedes CL-Class was designed for the sort of person who wants the luxury and authoritative power of a Bentley Continental GT, but without all of the, shall we say, “visual drama”. Based on the W221 Mercedes S-Class, this large 2-door coupé is filled with all of the cutting-edge features available on the flagship saloon. The range of engines goes from ‘powerful’, to ‘insanely powerful’. And the accoutrements wouldn’t be out of place in Windsor Castle. The C216 Mercedes CL is truly the last word in Germanic motoring perfection.

     

    Underpinning the C216 Mercedes CL is the second-generation of MB’s Active Body Control suspension, which nearly eliminates body roll by using hydraulic pressure to prop up the opposite side of the car in a turn. The 2011 mid-cycle update added a crosswind stabilization function that used a bevy of sensors to detect strong gusts of wind, then counteract body movements with additional hydraulic pressure. The ABC suspension works wonders on this 2,000+ kg luxury cruiser. But make no mistake, even in AMG guise, this is still a very big car.

     

    Motivating this decadent personal yacht are a selection of fittingly powerful engines. The 2007-2010 Mercedes CL500 was powered by 382 bhp 5.5L V8, which could hurl it to 100 km/h in 5.4 seconds. In 2011, that motor was replaced by a more efficient 429 bhp twin-turbo 4.6L V8, which dropped the acceleration time to just 4.9 seconds. The CL500 was also available with 4Matic all-wheel drive and the standard BlueEfficiency pack (aero enhancements, stop/start function) helped with fuel consumption and emissions.
