Mercedes-Benz CLK Coupe 350 Sport 2d Tip Auto (2007/07)

Mercedes-Benz CLK Coupe 350 Sport 2d Tip Auto (2007/07) - Owner Review

At 6'4 not many cars are practical for my height. My previous was a 997C2S and before that the CLK55. This car is exactly what a gentlemen needs from a car. Good size boot, plenty of legroom, a lowish centre console allowing the left knee to project over (no the case in a BMW) , the right looks, plenty of gadgets, 2 doors and rear seats when needed.
