2011 Mercedes-Benz CL 65 AMG: official details, photos, specs and price

Mercedes-Benz released today the first photos with the 2011 CL 65 AMG, the most powerful model found in the CL-Class. The new car comes with an impressive 6.0-liter V12 engine mated to a five-speed AMG SpeedShift automatic transmission, capable to deliver 630 hp (463 kW) and a maximum torque of 1000 Nm which remains constant between 2300 and 4300 rpm.

What is really interesting is that the torque has been electronically limited to 1000 Nm from a possible 1200 Nm, to make allowances for the powertrain. The car can sprint from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 4.4 seconds and has a top speed electronically limited to 250 km/h (155 mph), but we know that if the limit is removed, the car can have a top speed of over 200 mph or 320 km/h.

As you may know already, the old generation CL 65 AMG delivered 612 hp (450 kW), but thanks to new enlarged exhaust gas turbochargers and the new engine electronics, the engineers obtained a power increase of 18 hp (13 kW). Despite the increase in output, the car has a NEDC-combined fuel consumption of 14.3 litres per 100 kilometres (16.44 mpg), which equates to a reduction of 0.2 litre per 100 km.
