For some reason that reminds me of the cigarette truck used during a mission in Mafia 2.

Our friend is selling their 2002 CL500 Mercedes.

As sad as it is to see it go, here is a great opportunity for anyone in Australia looking for a pristine condition early 2000's Mercedes.

The car has won best in class for the past 3 years along with best car in show.

The car was originally bought at Mercedes Benz Sydney and is a one owner vehicle.

Everything is original and in showroom condition, they only ever used the car for the weekends, hence the low kms and always garaged.

That looks super tidy, but I wouldn't touch an early noughties Mercedes with a sh*tty stick. Abysmal build quality, horrendous electrics and rust literally everywhere.

I don't know much about the Aussie market for big Mercs either but that price looks nuts to me. £22k for a 15 year old CL500 is crazy. A reasonably tidy one can be had for £3k. Three grand! An absolutely mint car from a dealer is about £5k.

To put that into context, a 57 plate CL63 from a dealer, admittedly leggier at 87k, but with full Mercedes service history is £20k. A spotless 2009 CL500 with 25k on the clock, £21k.

A couple of major contributing factors are overinflation and taxes, hence why a 15 yr old Mercedes is 22k pounds.

Living in Australia, in general, costs more to live than most places in the world. Luxury goods in Australia also cost nearly double the price of what it would cost elsewhere and brand snobbery is a problem over here too.

 

For instance

A base C200 Mercedes will roughly set you back in Australia at 71k (Aud) (on road).

A Louis Vuitton Vernis handbag will set you back $4300 (Aud). 

 

I'll provide a few articles for those of you interested in researching the Australian market of goods.
