Well now the question arises, Is a CL 65 (V12 Twin Turbo) a waste? I mean its a huge car and doesnt even have a Manual transmission option(like most Mercs)!! I mean, yes it would be one sick car to have, but for the price couldnt you do better?

Mercs dont come in Manual transmission buddy. I believe the 2003 C class was the first to come in a manual transmission - and i think it was the lil hatchback too.

No other mercs have manual transmission as an option.

My best friend had a Cl600- if u have the money its worth it.

you dont get the CL65 for pure speed, you get it if you want an insanely fast crusier. Think of it as a chariot pulled by a racehorse, not a racehorse with 2 seats bolted on

exactly. Its the "ultimate fast Leather Couch on wheels". While the ferrari modena and lambo gallardo are closer to the "really fast wooden bench on wheels"

You obviously haven't been to Europe. . I am not backing up Mercedes, but you gotta know what you're talking about before you post.
Almost every Merc car below 3.5 liter features a manualbox. Aclass, Cclass, Eclass, Vclass, and the Sprinter... The only all out autobox cars/trucks they produce are the S, CL and SL. Even the old Gwagon came in manual...

But, you are right, the CL65 doesn't come in a manual...unfortunately.
