The stunning Mercedes Benz CLS550 combines the sportiness of a two-door coupe with the practicality of a four-door sedan, making it highly desirable amongst affluent executives in Japan.

When introduced in 2004, its sleek, coupe-like styling with big grille, long hood, low sloping roof and bold tail lights was so popular that Audi, Volkswagen and Jaguar came out with similar-looking models. The second-generation CLS550, launched in 2012 with more aggressive looks and better all-around performance, left the competition even further behind.

Its fast 4.7-liter, direct-injection, twin-turbo V8 engine pumps out 402 horsepower at 5,000 rpm and 443 pounds-feet of torque at 1,800 rpm to propel you from zero to 60 mph in about 5 seconds flat. Even when you press the pedal to the metal, there is no perceptible turbo lag.

The smooth-shifting 7-speed automatic transmission provides a Sport mode for sportier acceleration and a stiffer ride. You can also press “M” to manually shift gears via steering-wheel-mounted sequential sport shift paddles. Fuel efficiency is a solid 25 mpg on the highway and 16 mpg in the city.

Handling is quick and predictable, with excellent grip around serpentine curves and an extremely smooth ride thanks to a standard Airmatic air suspension that adapts to road conditions to deliver maximum comfort. An electronic stability system and traction control are also included.

The lavishly appointed interior is extremely comfortable, with stylish curves that complement the exterior. Its luxurious leather seats keep you refreshed on long journeys and provide solid support during spirited driving. The driver and front passenger enjoy all the spaciousness of a mid-sized sedan with great visibility, and the rear seats comfortably accommodate two.

Electric power steering offers linear response and ample feedback, while highly fade-resistant disc brakes with standard ABS and brake assist take you from 60 to 0 mph in about 106 feet.

The ride is quiet and the craftsmanship is top-notch, with genuine walnut panels, solid switches and controls, high-quality soft-brushed metallic trim and an impressive fit and finish. There are also plenty of storage compartments and ample cargo space, including a generously sized trunk.

Safety features include 9 standard airbags and a dozen advanced driver assistance systems that help with parking, staying in your lane, monitoring blind spots and more. If the Pre-Safe system determines that a collision is unavoidable, it closes the windows, tightens the seat belts and adjusts the seats to maximize occupant protection. Extremely high crash test ratings further heighten peace of mind.

This pearl 2012 CLS550 Mercedes Benz with handsome gray interior and wide-ranging amenities is one beautiful machine. It’s easy to imagine the previous owner — who kept it in near mint condition — will miss it for years to come. Once you’ve fallen in love with the styling, comfort and performance of a CLS550, it’s hard to settle for anything else, especially from other makers. Everything just feels right and makes you feel right about yourself.

It makes sense to import your CLS550 directly from Japan, where some of the world’s best deals can be found through owners, specialist dealers and auctions offering over 50,000 vehicles every week. Japanese tend to take exceptionally good care of their cars and upgrade often, providing fantastic opportunities for secondhand car seekers.

Japan Car Direct can help you find exactly what you are looking for through its vast experience and connections in Japan. German luxury machines with left or right hand drive, exotic Italian supercars and high-performance JDM models of all kinds can all be found at much better prices than what is available through your local dealers.

Our professional staff simplifies the entire process from finding your car and getting it thoroughly inspected to purchasing it at the best possible price and having it shipped to your nearest port. We look forward to hearing from you soon and delivering total satisfaction.

    review rating 5  A few months ago I set out on my goal of importing a vehicle from Japan through an auction. After tons and TONs of research and countless emails, I decided to use Japan Car Direct as my exporter in Japan. From the beginning of my interactions with JCD, I was thoroughly impressed. My contact, Yoshi, was amazing...definitely a huge asset to the JCD team. He answered all of my questions promptly, translated dozens of auction sheets for me, and advised me of what to watch out for when looking for a vehicle. He was beyond helpful! I picked up my Kei truck at the port in Newport News a few weeks ago and couldn't be more pleased. Since then, the truck has made it to its final home in Charlottesville, VA on my farm. Yoshi and the other guys at JCD are now my go to team for more of these soon. Thanks again JCD and keep doing what you guys do! You all are the real deal.

  • review rating 5  Since a kid the FD RX7 has always been a dream car but i didn't pursue it till i graduated high school but the prices just for the shell over here in california was over 15k!! I kept looking around until I decided i would just import one. I found JCD while looking for the top 5 importers you could trust and they stood out more than all the other ones, and for a couple months of more research on their page until I ultimately decided I would go through them. Although this was my first time getting a car from Japan and having an endless amount questions spanning a couple hundred emails until it would freeze up and i had to make a new email thread .. Mathew always answered every question and helped me though every step. I didn't have all the funds in the beginning but they were very patient with it until i was fully ready, then after a month of having Matt give his thought on some of the FDs i was looking at we finally won the auction for a 94 Efini type R Fd3s. As we picked it up from Long Beach till the drive home I couldn't believe that it was here and soo much better just looking at the picture but i defiantly would recommend JCD to anyone looking to import their dream car too and and want to thank matt and the whole team with getting me my RX7.

    review rating 5  I'd been looking to buy an RF series Honda Stepwagon to convert into a mini camper for a while but the UK prices always seemed too high. I had joined a few JDM import sites to get an idea of auction prices and costs (including Japan Car Direct) but just couldn't bring myself to take the next step, it seemed such a risk ! Finally after reading so many good reviews for JCD (and Mathew in particular) I took the plunge and contacted Mathew. After he answered my many questions regarding costs, fees etc I felt confident enough to pay the deposit and start hunting the Japanese auctions for my Steppy. My budget for the Steppy was pretty low (pathetic even !) but I felt Mat still put the same effort into replying to my questions and queries as he would have done if my budget had been into the tens of thousands. The result was I now have a very tidy Stepwagon with lower mileage than any vehicle I've ever owned, I've paid far less for it then I would have done buying in the UK and I've got a bigger budget now for the camper conversion. I wouldn't hesitate to buy through them again, and hope to do so soon.

    review rating 5  5 star experience from start to finish. Transparent and easy process, and Mat was very patient to answer plenty of questions I had during the purchase! Can’t wait to do it again because the Japanese cars from this era are pure automotive art and these guys hold the keys to the museum!

  • review rating 5  After an initial inquiry several years ago, I still wanted to get a Japanese Delica or Hiace. Matthew was immediately in contact and helped with all the details. His videos were perfect for my search. Matthew was able to answer all of my questions and my wife and I were able to make decisions based on the great information he provided. I would recommend Japan Car Direct to anyone interested in getting the right car at the best price.

    review rating 5  All I can say about the experience is AMAZING! I worked with Matthew and he was helpful through the whole process of bidding, purchasing, and shipping the car to me.

    review rating 5  All around exceptional experience! Matt was great to work with and guided me through the entire process with ease. As a first timer, importing was a bit nerve racking but JCD did a great job providing a cool little truck I can enjoy here in Delaware. I look forward to picking up the next toy/vehicle through them.

  • review rating 5  The experienced, grizzled veterans of the import scene. They were very accommodating with all my questions and concerns. It was my first time importing, so everything was confusing and intimidating, but I'm happy to report everything went as planned! I'm definitely calling them back when I finally come up with an excuse to import another!

    review rating 5  Working with Mathew and his team was an absolute pleasure. I went from never knowing you could import your own vehicle to owning my own Suzuki Cara within 6 months. Mathew was so helpful and completely transparent with me during the entire process. We spoke on the phone and via email and he helped me pick the perfect car exactly within my requirements. He dealt with my excitement and inexperience with patience and understanding. I couldn't be happier with my experience and will absolutely use Japan Car Direct again when it's time for another project. I highly recommend Mathew and Japan Car Direct.
