Completely agree with this. I don't see any justification for spending that much of a premium for this car. The CLS550 gives you a V8, faster acceleration than the 650i Coupe based on journalist tests, similar styling, and no worries about HPFP issues for less money.

My guess is that to equip a 650i GC to level of my 550i will put it at $105k. At that point you would be in CLS63 AMG territory.
