The 2007 Mercedes Benz CL550 offers 'sizzling style and machine-like power'
by Bend Weekly News Sources

Mark Perleberg, lead auto expert at NADAguides.com - a leading vehicle information website -- today weighed in on his recent test drive of the Mercedes Benz CL550, the latest in stylish sedan-based coupes gracing the automotive market

"I love this car's sizzling style and machine-like power," said Perleberg. "I firmly believe the Mercedes CL550 is destined to be a timeless classic of the future -- one that makes you sit up and take notice."

NADAguides.com says the 2007 Mercedes Benz CL550 offers "Sizzling Style and Machine-Like Power".
The New 2007 Mercedes CL550 comes equipped with throaty power that stems from a 5.5 liter V8 engine producing enough horsepower (382 to be exact) to propel its 4,485 pounds from zero to 60 in just 4.5 seconds -- a characteristic that, according to Perleberg, makes you forget you're handling such a massive machine.

Current EPA fuel mileage estimates peg the 2007 Mercedes CL550 at 15 city and 22 highway miles-per-gallon, not enough to avoid the $1,300 gas guzzler tax. But, with a window sticker of $99,900 (Perleberg's test car listed at $110,925), it's unlikely owners of the Mercedes CL550 will notice the lack of fuel efficiency, says Perleberg.

"It doesn't have the best fuel economy and I found the 'Command System' -- which controls most of the vehicle's creature features -- a bit tricky to master," said Perleberg. "But I hear it gets easier to figure out with time. Overall, I doubt these little nuances will have a negative effect on the CL550's overall popularity with the distinguished car buyer."

Perleberg's take on the Mercedes CL550, complete with luxurious features Mercedes buyers have come to expect, is one of superior handling and braking in a stylish design package. "This is a lavish, powerful sedan -- a must have for luxury car buyers."

Don Christy, Jr., president and CEO of NADAguides.com, also had a chance to review the CL550 and weighs in on the car's design features. "I like this car's aggressive stance -- it sits low and mean and its overall body size is larger than it first appears. From the back, you can really appreciate the vehicle's full fenders and wide wheel span and its side body design gets more detailed the longer you look."
