Mercedes-Benz Celebrates S-Class Coupe's 60th Birthday with New CL Grand Edition

There may have been several name changes over the years but the fact remains that today’s Mercedes-Benz CL is a direct descendant of the 1952 300 S.

If you do the math, you’ll discover that it’s been 60 years since the introduction of the 300 S and to mark the anniversary, the German brand has launched a new version of the CL named “Grand Edition”.

The Grand Edition models make use of a selection of options available in Mercedes’ ‘designo’ range including a choice of three bespoke paint finishes called platinum black metallic, mocha black metallic and magno cashmere matte white, which is featured on the model seen in these pictures.

To further differentiate the Grand Edition from the regular CL models, Mercedes has also added the AMG Sports package, with front and rear aprons, side sill panels and 20-inch alloy wheels in a choice of five-spoke or filigree 10-spoke designs. A “Grand Edition” badge completes the exterior revisions.

Inside, customers can choose from three different ‘designo’ leather upholsteries including aniline leather armagnac, aniline leather deep black and the lighter aniline leather porcelain, as well as a variety of special trim finishes

The “Grand Edition” will be offered as an option package priced at €4,850 (approx. US$6,500) not including VAT in Germany, on the 420hp CL 500 BlueEFFICIENCY and its 4MATIC all-wheel drive derivative as well as the 510hp CL 600.
