Merc CL500, BMW e38 740, Jaaaaag, or LS400. All great cars with V8 engines, and all have potential pitfalls to look out for. Although the LS400 will have less pitfalls than the others. You can pick up a nice example of any of them for 2-3 grand.
Personally I would go for a CL500 all day long.

The guy has a good reputation for the quality and standards of his cars

Good find! Thanks, has more detail.

Was 3.8, now 2.9k!

Wonder if he would take 2k  :)

I wouldn't pay any more than 2k for it. Its a very old one, and there are plenty of newer ones for sale as cheap if not cheaper.
Nice colour though.
The scary thing with them is the ABC system going wrong.  As with all things, you could leave it in a garage for repairs and pay 1k plus for the privilege. Or you could research the issue and work out the best option.

If your feeling really irresponsible you could go for the CL600. 6 litre V12 ! Theres also the CL55 AMG option.

My favourite old Merc is the late sixties/early seventies 6.3 SEL. a proper 'cold war' Merc.

Failing that an E55 with a supercharger from around 2003-2006. A properly quick car. :y

CL 500 has the same 306 BHP V8 as in my CLS 500. Doesn't sound much but with plenty of torque  to back it up was more than adequate. :y

The CL is a very attractive coupe. :y

Inside they look far from expensive though with acres of cheap plastic. :-X

Maybe, but with a V8 and massage seats. Who cares!  :)

If you even consider the Audi A8 have a check on service costs / parts costs .... I seriously looked at an A8 before going for the A6 Allroad .... the prices simply frightened me !!

:(

I would be a temp car, but yes looks expensive.  :(

W220 S CLASS is readily available for sub 4k.

But.

They rust like an old Fiat and are really cheaply made. Especially if compared side by side with the previous W140.

Airmatic issues will cost anything upto 2k to sort in parts alone.
