A very sleek and very silver Mercedes-Benz C140 CL600, seen in the great city of Foshan in Guangdong Province. The good vehicle seems to be in a remarkable fine and original state, which is impressive because the C140 was never officially exported to China so parts are very hard to get.
Note V12 badges on the C-pillar. The C140 was produced from 1992 until 1999. The CL 600 was the top-spec car, powered by a mighty 6.0 liter V12 with an output of 402hp and 580nm, good for a 245km/h top speed.
This particular example is the very first C140 CL we meet in China. However, we got a lot of the W140 sedan: black S500, green S280, S600 in black, Pullman S6000, S500 with W210 E, motorcade, motorcade, S500, crash, body kit, S500 in white, S600, and another S600.
parts availability aside, that has got to be one of the most perfect cars for chinese roads. rugged enough for even the most pothole infested road, yet stylish and classy for the city. plus, it’s more exclusive than, say, a ferrari 458 or any new-ish lambo.
Pothole infested roads in China? What fucking planet are you from?
