  • Price: $160,300
  • Mileage: 12 mpg city/18 mpg highway

Best described as a coupe version of the S-Class sedan, the CL600's rakish good looks mingle with a high degree of passenger comfort, resulting in a world-class touring gas guzzler.

Gobs of leather and wood punctuated by standard features ease the task of road work. These include a Cockpit Management and Data, or COMAND, electronics system, hard-drive navigation system, and a Harman Kardon surround-sound audio system.

The CL600 turns its rear wheels with a 510-horsepower, 5.5-liter V-12 via a five-speed driver-shiftable automatic transmission. Reaching 60 mph from a stop takes it 4.5 seconds.
