Going to look at a CL600 what to look for?

So I'm going to look at one I saw on Criags List. It's a 04 with 50k miles. I never drove one of these before and am curious why it would be so cheap? I mean a turbo V12 is probably not cheap to maintain but how much should a car like that go for? What typically brakes or is it just every part is crazy expensive?

Run away! Fast! Unless of course you have more money than sense, then buy three and maybe you'll be able to keep one in shape enough to drive.

Everything is crazy unreliable and parts are crazy expensive.

$5,000 a year to maintain it would be realistic.

Is that from experience or an estimate. It would be cool to know what you would have to budget for a car like this. Put it this way. If you buy a new Honda Accord and finance it for 5 years you are paying $500/mo. Or you could buy this super car for $10k and budget $400/mo to keeping it running.

Forget a few hundred a month. You'll need to keep 5 grand in an escrow account and have the ability to replace it the same day its sucks it dry.
