Just check out the Mercedes-Benz CLS500. Is it not sex on wheels? There is something for everyone in this vehicle, from the sports car lover to the luxury minded. You will most certainly get what you are looking for – and more.
Look under the low slung bonnet and you will find a thumping 5.5 litre V8 which beats a rapid note. The 285 kW heart-beat performs beautifully and, being linked to a state-of-the-art 7-speed touch-shift automatic transmission, cuts out the 0-100 km/h sprint in just over five seconds flat. I could really get used to that sort of grunt! The auto learns how you drive and adjusts to your unique movements.
The Mercedes-Benz CLS500 comes with 4-wheel Anti-lock brakes as well as Traction Control and a Dynamic Stability Programme that monitors the ABS and steering adjusting the engine’s output accordingly to help keep you safe and firmly on the road. Other safety features include front driver and passenger airbags. The passenger side airbag is “weight sensitive”; in other words, the vehicle knows when someone is sitting in the seat and turns the airbag on accordingly. There are also door and headliner airbags to provide the utmost in protection in the event of a crash. There is a security system with panic alarm and ignition disabler.
The interior is luxury, luxury and more luxury with multi-adjustable heated power front seats that are memory programmable. Leather is everywhere, as is just the right amount of wood trim. You can choose a sunroof model or go for the gold and get a convertible. Climate control is fully adjustable with dual controls and filtered air intakes. The steering wheel is a work of art in itself and is not only power tilt/telescoping and swing away adjustable, but houses the audio, telephone and display functions all at the touch of your thumb. There is a navigation system with DVD capabilities and an audio system that includes satellite radio.
This is a drive worth savouring. Enjoy!
