Description

Want to impress your basketball buddies? Tell 'em you bought T-Mac's old Benz coupe! That's right, we have the car whose original owner was Hall of Fame NBA player Tracy “T-Mac” McGrady Jr., a 2001 Mercedes-Benz CL600 Custom Coupe. This is a one of a kind 12 cylinder CL600 with low mileage that originally sold for $107,200, before West Coast Customs' customization.

Dressed in Lilac Blue, the car's paint and exterior trim are in overall excellent condition. The bodywork is strong and solid and comes with a Lorenzer body kit – front air dam with foglights, side air dams, a rear trunk lid spoiler and a rear window wing. A/C blows cool not cold. The engine bay is very tidy and the body-colored bumpers fit tightly to the body. The car was originally made in September 2000 in Sindelfingen, Germany.

This Benz has a mix of Michelin radials in the rear, size 285/30ZR20, and Hankook radials up front, size 245/35ZR20. Each tire is mounted on a color-matched GFG alloy wheel. The wheels and tires are all in very good order. With minor blemishes.

Under the hood is a 5.8L SOHC 36-valve V-12 engine (code M137) that puts down 362 horsepower and 391 pounds-feet of torque, dual exhausts, Active Cylinder Control and a 10.0:1 compression ratio. The motor is backed by a five-speed automatic transmission. The engine crankcase was cast in a lightweight alloy with “Silitec” (silicon/aluminum) cylinder liners to save weight. The new powerplant was lighter than its predecessor and offered better fuel consumption thanks to a cylinder deactivation technology.

Befitting a Benz, the list of driver convenience features is long – fully automatic climate control system with pollen and charcoal filters; power rack-and-pinion steering; power, four-wheel disc brakes; Distronic cruise control; power windows; power locks; power and heated sideview mirrors; power sunroof; Summer Open/Close to open and close all windows and sunroof at the same time; self-opening and closing trunk lid; Parktronic visual and audible parking aid; self-closing doors; power front seats with heat and memory functions; rain-sensing windshield wipers; remote trunk opener; auto-dimming rearview and driver's sideview mirrors; and bi-xenon headlamps.

Safety equipment includes eight airbags - dual front, four side curtain and two window airbags, anti-lock brakes, LED taillights, Active Body Control system, Electronic Stability Program (ESP) and Brake Assist.

Inside, a custom silver and black Gucci cloth and leather interior greets the driver. The front buckets and rear demi buckets are upholstered in this Gucci cloth and leather with matching inner door panels. The complementing black carpet and headliner are in similar shape to the seats' condition. A four-spoke steering wheel faces the driver and wears another custom feature, more Lilac Blue. The steering wheel rim, center console and door panels are all graced with it. The dashboard and inner doors are in excellent order while the center console and shift lever look great. A JVC infotainment system is included and the trunk contains a high end thumpin' JL Audio Sound System.

The CL-Class coupés came equipped with the very latest in Mercedes-Benz technology at that time and received new technological features. It was the second car (after the W220 S-Class) with Distronic: the first worldwide radar-assisted Autonomous cruise control system. It was the first car in the world with both low- and high-beam (Bi-Xenon) High Intensity Discharge headlamps.

The C215 was standard equipped with hydropneumatic suspension, the Active Body Control or ABC system. It is technically more advanced than standard Airmatic air suspension found on the W220 S-Class, and keeps the car level even in fast corners, provides a comfort and sports setting. Also, the car height can be increased by using a button, increasing ground clearance (three settings) for driving on difficult terrain, lowers automatically at higher speeds.

From 1999 through 2003, the V-12-equipped cars featured a cylinder deactivation system called Active Cylinder Control. It allowed the CL 600 to get better fuel economy than the comparable CL 500 (when not equipped with ACC itself, an option for the V8), especially on the road where the six-cylinder operation could be effectively used.

Competition to this CL600 in 2001 included Aston Martin's DB7 Vantage, Jaguar's XKR Silverstone and Porsche's 911 Turbo Coupe.
