According to our German sources, it appears that Mercedes-Benz plans to introduce the all-new 2012 CLS 63 AMG next month, at the 2010 Los Angeles Auto Show.
The new car is expected to receive a revamped body kit consisting of a new front bumper with larger air intakes, new side sills, a new rear bumper with integrated air diffuser and 4-pipe exhaust system, as well as a rear trunk lip spoiler.
Inside, we expect to see a carbon fiber trim, a new sports steering wheel with paddle shifters as well as a new set of aluminum pedals and sport buckets.
Under the hood, the car is expected to carry the new 5.5-liter AMG V8 engine found on the 2011 Mercedes-Benz S 63 AMG and capable to deliver an impressive 400 kW (544 hp) and maximum torque of 800 Nm, in combination with the unique AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 7-speed sports transmission.
The engine delivers a fuel consumption of 10.5 litres per 100 kilometres (NEDC combined).
Still, if you want more power, Mercedes-Benz offers the optional AMG Performance package, which increases the engine output to 420 kW (571 hp) and 900 Nm.
Regarding the performances, the S63 AMG equipped with the new engine can sprint from zero to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.5 seconds, and has an electronically limited top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph).
With the AMG Performance package, the vehicle is pushed to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 4.4 seconds while the top speed is increased to an electronically limited 300 km/h (186 mph). Expect the same numbers from the new 2012 Mercedes-Benz CLS 63 AMG.
