CNET Car Tech: 2011 Mercedes CL550

The official coupe of the two incomes, no kids, no apologies crowd.


Not an entirely new car, but a heavily revised for the 2011 model year. Saucier lines, a more exotic motor, LED forward lighting, yet keeping the classic values like an eye-watering base price and a gas guzzler tax. You don't buy a 2011 CL550 for any rational reason, but you'll sure look good being illogical. Brian Cooley takes you for a drive to check the tech.
