When you think about Mercedes, the first association is for a big, sluggish luxury car. AMG changed that, long ago. Their latest creation is CL 63 AMG, which features cutting-edge exterior and technology.

The engine under the bonnet is entirely new 5.5 litre V8 Biturbo developing 571hp and 900Nm of torque. The mighty engine is mated with the unique AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 7-speed sports automatic gearbox. The new drivetrain not only improves the performance characteristics of CL-class, but it also is more efficient by returning 26.9 mpg and emitting less harmful CO2.

The naturally aspirated 6.2 litre V8 was amazing engine, but the new 5.5 litre V8 Biturbo is staggering. The acceleration is so fast, that you have to be fully concentrated, whenever you hit the pedal to the metal. The monster does 100 kph from stand still in 4.4 seconds and it does not stop until the electronic speed limiter, which is at 186 mph – for safety reasons, of course.

Outside, Mercedes-Benz CL 63 AMG is just the perfect sports coupe. The vehicle has huge amount of power, sleek beautiful 2-door body, huge brakes and superb suspension. There is nothing else that you need to have fun every time you sit behind the steering wheel.

The more powerful V12 version – CL 65 AMG now produces 630hp and will also be celebrating its market launch in October.
