I think thats because many of the parts for the S class are localised.
which is currently not the case with the CLS.
Otherwise the cost for the CLS 500 and S-350 are exactly the same abroad i.e $ 65000 approx.

Yup, i thought you were comparing the CLS 350 and CLS 500.
Price difference is because of import duty.
The CLS is a cbu so 104% duty implies
whereas the S 350 is a CKD so its around 50-60% duty.

And just btw,

The Rupee price of the CLS 350 is,
STANDARD CAR 5820495.00
METALLIC PAINTWORK 119148.00
LEATHER 196428.00

This excludes all options but includes duty
whereas the price of the 500 is,
STANDARD CAR 6951867.00
METALLIC PAINTWORK 119148.00
LEATHER STANDARD

The CLS 500 was reportedly sold for Rs 1.2 Crores. I found out who the owner is. I don't remember the name, but I can tell you what else he is famous for. If it's alright with others on the forum, that is.

This was at Worli Seaface at about 1.45 am.
It was really nice of the owner to stop in the middle and let him click.
Looks a killer man.

no no F50,

What I meant is - is the car originally from the suburbs or townside?!
This depends on where the car is spotted mostly.
Or to make it simple, CLS55AMG, could you please at least tell us where it is from?!

I have a feeling there is one more of these Golden CLS 500. Just a hunch though.

As of now this is not the only CLS in Mumbai. There is a black one too. Cant tell you where it is right now but it will be at the showroom from tuesday evening onwards, so anyone who wants to see it upclose and personal please drop in to AutoHangar.
