Yes, I know. Your mind is blown! A four seat coupe is indeed an Affordable Supercar AND it's a Mercedes. This isn't just any run of the mill car with a tri-pointed star in the grille. This is the CL65 AMG with a pair of turbos and a 6.0 liter V12 behind that shiny grille.
Wait a minute! Go back and read that again. "Turbos" and "V12" are in the same sentence and the same car. This CL isn't just a boulevard cruiser. It's a back alley bruiser. That force-fed motor converts air and fuel with a result of just over 600hp making this the most powerful ASS ever! We might as well call this car Beyonce.
Not being an Elise in this class and price range is a good thing too. It actually comes with an interior and it is simply divine. Many cows gave their lives to produce an elegant cockpit that can seat four very comfortably for very long journeys. Since it looks like any other car that a rich geriatric would drive, long journeys can be completed in a minimal amount of time without a glance from the police.
Here's Jeremy Clarkson's review and don't forget to check Ebay... for sub-$40k CL65s, not Beyonce
