While JC has been always a little biased towards British cars, I don't really recall him hating Mercs. He liked the E55, he said the S600 was worth every penny that one spends on it, he said the quality of the CL65 was aweful, but he still loved it, what the hell, he even bought an SL55. The CLS is a change from the somewhat boring designs that Mercedes has been making. It's also more sporty - an ideal recipe to push it up most guys' charts.

With a powerful engine and not so bad styling, I'd agree with what Clarkson has said in the review...but I'd prefer the naturally aspirated 5.0 litre BMW M5 over it.
