For Sale: 2000 Mercedes-Benz CL500 in Cincinnati, Ohio

Vehicle Description


Please call Greg directly at 513-200-9226 with any questions about this car.

Seven Hills Motorcars is very proud to offer this absolutely stunning 2000 Mercedes CL500 in spectacular condition with only 91,230 miles. This Mercedes is completely "turn key" and I would not hesitate to hop in this car right now and drive across the country. The Obsidian Black over Saffron Leather color combination is highly desirable, truly striking, and looks great on this CL. It is also the correct and original color scheme as verified by the codes on the service sticker, which is pictured in this ad.

I have put more than 500 miles on this CL500 in the past month. The car was a pleasure to drive and was flawlessly reliable. The car comes with both original key remotes, the valet key, the original owner's manual, and books. We have this Mercedes priced to sell and are offering an excellent opportunity to own a very desirable CL at an unbeatable value.

This car has had only two owners since new. The most previous owner of the car had it for nineteen years. He purchased it in April of 2003 with 13,846 miles for the price of $75,000. The current low original mileage is verified not only by the condition of the car, but also the clear Ohio title that shows the mileage as "Actual." Please peruse all of the photos, video, and other information to get a true sense of how nice this Mercedes really is.

As a side note, this CL500 is not a dealer auction vehicle. We hand-pick each car after careful inspection. Our classic and exotic cars come from owners who expect their car to go to someone that will give the vehicle the same care and attention as they did. We invite and encourage you to examine the car in person or have the car inspected. Please take the time to scrutinize each picture. We photograph each vehicle to the greatest extent so you can feel confident about your purchase. If you have a question about the Mercedes, just give us a call.


The Obsidian Black exterior is in excellent condition. As one can see in the photos, the finish has dazzling gloss, smooth finish, and deep shine. Both doors open and shut nicely; it has that solid Mercedes touch and feels like a vault door closing. The car exhibits great body panel fit overall. The original 17" alloy wheels are in great condition with a brilliant finish. The tires are literally brand new with less than twenty miles on them and are correctly sized 225/55R17. There are no major imperfections that have been excluded from the photos. There is a very tiny chip in the windshield that was too small to show up in photos. This Mercedes has always been stored indoors and the underside is also very clean.

The car looks just as good in person as it does in the photos.


The Saffron Leather interior of the Mercedes is in fantastic condition. The gauge faces are clean and crisp and the lenses are crystal clear. The seats look just as good in person as they do in the photos with just a small amount of wear in the typical area on the bolster where the driver gets in and out. The carpet is also in great condition with no rips or holes. The dash and console are in great shape with no cracks, fading, or sun damage. The wood grain looks excellent with no delamination. The headliner is not sagging or drooping at all. This Mercedes has never been smoked in; there are no burn marks, no aroma of cigarettes, and the cigarette lighter has never been used.

Lighter color interiors like this Saffron leather are not known to wear well and the excellent condition of this interior is a huge testament to the meticulous care and attention this Mercedes has received throughout its life.

The interior looks just as good in person as it does in the photos.


This Mercedes is in wonderful mechanical condition. The 5.0L V8 engine starts right away every time and runs great. The car drives magnificently and feels great on the road and at highway speeds, it drives just as well as you would expect from a well-maintained grand tourer with low mileage. This Mercedes was built for the Autobahn and can could cruise all day at speeds over 100mph with incredibly smooth power delivery and comfort. In the video below one can observe the car accelerating on the highway up to about 70mph, shifting through all the gears, braking to stoplight, and going through some curves. Please note that there are no strange noises or vibrations and the car performs quite well overall. The brakes are responsive and do not pull to one side or the other. The transmission shifts well throughout the power band. The car runs cool and does not overheat. Also, the engine compartment is beautifully clean, detailed, and correct as one can see in the photos. The car is completely stock, has no modification, and is totally unmolested.

Please note in the video that all of the warning lights work properly. They light up when the key is first turned on and then go off when the engine is started. There are no "check engine" or other warning lights that stay on. The radio works as do the exterior lights, interior lights, dash lights, seat heaters, seat coolers, horn, wipers, and indicators. The sunroof works as it should. The blower for the heater and a/c works on all speeds. The a/c itself works and blows cold. All of the gauges work. The cupholder does not always pop out correctly and the rear window shade and parking sensors can be finicky. Not enough can be said as to how much of a pleasure it is to drive this car.

The car runs and drives as well as it looks.

Overall Condition

Overall, this 2000 Mercedes CL500 looks fantastic and is an awesome car. The beautiful original color combination, excellent condition, and the very low original mileage make this CL especially important and very hard to duplicate. The Mercedes CL has been an iconic model for decades and this 500 is truly a premium example. In our opinion and based on our experience the C215 Mercedes CL class made from 1998-2006 is rising in value and are becoming classics. This is especially true for premium and low mileage examples like this CL500. The value of these cars is going up and they are solid investments for a collector. One could easily enjoy this vehicle for several years and sell it for more than the purchase price with minimal effort.

Thank you for looking and please do not hesitate to email or call with any questions.
