Excellent condition would put its value at around $45,000. I have some personal experience with the R230 chassis and URGE you to check the maintenance records for this vehicle. The Active Body Control system is nothing but trouble on these cars. The system was and is ahead of its time, but it is also one of the main reasons these cars (the CL-class, SL-class, and high end S-class) are selling for less than half of their original value. If the ABC hydraulic fluid is not changed every 15 to a maximum of 20,000 miles, they tend to eat themselves. An ABC fluid change costs a minimum of $600 and if the system has been neglected, each suspension strut costs from 1,200 to 2,000. In my opinion, if there is no record of the fluid being changed walk away immediately.
