If you’re looking for a special sports car once owned by an American legend, and you don’t need a lot of cargo space, here’s an AutoTrader.com listing that’s a real winner. This 2005 Mercedes-Benz CL55 AMG was formally owned and pampered by legendary Dodgers organization announcer, Vin Scully, a man who was dedicated to what he loved for over 60 years. This could be a humbling thought on the open road with an open throttle in this glorious 5.5 liter, supercharged, V-8 Mercedes AMG masterpiece.
This beauty originally beckoned auto buyers with an MSRP of $125,000, and, with over 56,000 miles on the odometer and five years of depreciation, can now be obtained for just under $40,000.
The car is currently located at a dealership in the beautiful Santa Monica mountains, a place with plenty of winding roads to test the handling and state of the art technology and gadgets. After you adjust your personal audio settings, you’ll get a chance to put your pedal to the heavy metal of a 10-speaker BOSE Dolby Digital Surround Sound system, getting you to PCH with a great soundtrack.
The 2005 CL55 AMC originally competed with the Bentley Continental GT and the Aston Martin DBS, and out-performed almost any car on the road at the time with an impressive 0-60 in 4.8 seconds. All this, with the comfort of an executive luxury suite. We also imagine that there’s also some peace-of-mind that this vehicle may have led the life of luxury alongside its owner. At any rate, the future owner will hopefully be the confident captain that this car commands.
