    Around here, the Pimped Out Meceredes and BMW's typical have have a salvage title and 100k+ miles.
    These full size, pimp ridez seem to trade for around $10k to $12k. The AMG badge may bring it up to $15k.

    I feel like an idiot. After looking closer, it has the V8 engine. Someone has put the V12 emblems on it. There is an AMG emblem on the deck lid, but don't think it's factory.
    Story on the car is this; . My (recently fired) shop manager was working on it and then it just stayed parked inside for several days. Had a VIN check done to find out who it belonged to. Recognized the name to be someone my manager knew. I told him to get the car out if it wasn't in for business. He moves it to the fenced in outside parking lot. My secretary contacts the owner and advises them that we can no longer store the car and it must be removed. Warning was ignored for several months so it is mine now.

    Not sure what is wrong with it. Just got the final lien paperwork yesterday and had to buy a new battery for it. It has 6 tv screens inside, but some of the other a/v equipment is missing from the trunk.

    I'm going to detail it tomorrow. I'll post pics

    coincidence or irony, you choose. This last week on the Car Show they were talking about cars that devalued the most from their sale prices.... I'm pretty sure the CL AMG was one of those cars - they sold for somewhere around $230,000 new and worth about 25k now....

    AMG is the in house tuner for Mercedes. They make some pretty awesome stuff.

    Kelly Blue Book doesn't list it.
    Anyone on here know anything about these cars and what they are worth? It is pimped out with large chrome spinner wheels and a bunch of other crap.

    Dude, post some pics. What kind of guy lets a MB go for an unpaid transmission bill? His stock portfolio must have REALLY taken a hit....

    for us americans think of it as a SLP camaro SS or a ford STV Cobra. it's an in house built aftermarket package. just like my Grand Prix GTX. there is extra value but KBB will not list it

    becuase of this you are not going to find a price best bet find a Benz forum and ask there. i would try and find stock parts and sell the aftermarket pimp shizzle speratly you will make more money selling the car stock and the aftermarket items
    It's wrong according to the way you look up the model on Kelly Blue Book...
    I know it's an AMG, & it should be worth more than a basic CL-series car.
    It's not a car you sell on craigslist... I could imagine the replys...
    "what's the lowest you'll take for it?"
    "do you want to trade it for a harley?"

    Here's a rough estimate of the value...

    EDIT: there is no such thing as a CL500 AMG only the V12 got the AMG treatment and even then it was not called a CL600 AMG but a CL60 AMG or CL63 AMG

    yay wikipedia

    Good thing you're so good with a camera Jeff! Take a pile of pics and put it on Ebay or trader online or whatever - takes a special kind of person to want one of those bad enough to pay 5 figures for a used one.

    I'm guessing it needed a ton of trans work?

    Sucks you've had to hassle with it - good luck moving it.

    With spinners it's worth about $3 (to me). I hate those things.

    Without, it's gotta be worth $17,000 - $20,000, depending upon the condition.
