Outrageous 610PS Mercedes CL65 AMG Estimated at £10k-£14k in Historics Next Auction

Published 24 July 2015

This awesome 2004 twin-turbo V12 Mercedes-Benz CL65 AMG is coming up in Historics 29th August Classic Car Auction at Brooklands Museum, Weybridge.

The engine pumps out 610PS and 1,000Nm torque. Only 35-40 were ever sold in the UK and only 777 Worldwide. Performance is phenomenal. A limousine that outguns a Ferrari.

But a point worth making is that its current equivalent, the 585PS/900Nm Mercedes S63 AMG Coupe, which we were driving again yesterday, comes in at a cool £155,115, while the latest 630PS/1,000Nm S65 AMG Coupe offers no change out of £183,065.

So, though Historics CL65 AMG is 11 years old, the estimated £10,000 - £14,000 makes it less than 6% of the current car's price. 

That might be worth thinking about.

The 2004 Mercedes-Benz CL65 AMG is one of 130 fine classics that will be offered at Historics sale at Brooklands Museum on Saturday 29th August.  Full information at www.historics.co.uk
