1996 Mercedes C140 CL500 Coupe

This is my 1996 CL500 (Australian delivered C140 coupe - future classic), which I purchased in June 2019, with approximately 157,000km on the clock. An extremely rare car these days, you'd be lucky to see a couple a year on the roads - reason being that there were so few built globally (less than 30,000, and probably less than 1,000 for the Australian market?). If anyone has the stats I'd love to know. Runs and drives like nothing else I've ever had. The body work and trim is close to immaculate, with only the driver's seat bolster requiring some leather conditioner, and the seatbelt retractors are not rolling up the belts too welll any more and may need a refurbish. Other than that, this car is like new and all electronics work. I was expecting there may be a few mechanical issues and I bought it knowing of a few small leaks - having now taken it to the mechanic they've given it a clean bill of health and confirmed it's in good shape, and the leaks wil be cheap to fix. The following options are listed on the data plate:

414 - electric tilting/sliding roof in glass version

341additional turn signal lamps

625 - Australian Version

600 - headlamp wiper/washer

807 - change of model year, the last figure shows the new model year

810 - sound package

442 - airbag in steering wheel
