This is the C140 serieis - never a success - too bloated and never had the elegance of the C126 series. I think theres a pic of a C202 CL55 somewhere in the forum.

I know that this discussion over CL 500 is ages old. But I think this is the only discussion page on T-BHp over the CL 500. I am desperately looking for a CL 500/600. If in case any of you come across one for sale. Then please let me know.

Speedy I have been a regular follower of your W140 V12 ownership experience. I have been searching for the W140 coupe for quite some time now and I have been unsuccessful up-til now. I think this page is the only internet existence of this car in our country. So I am relying on you and Dippy for some help. I know that these posts are ages old now, but if there is anything you can do to locate any of these cars I'll be very thankful to you. Hoping to hear from you.

What Dippy and myself have posted are the same car and not two different cars. I shall try and talk to the owner if he would consider parting with it.
