Pricing for the new flagship coupes from Mercedes-Benz -- the CL63 AMG and CL65 AMG has just been released. The V8-powered CL63 AMG is equipped with the new twin-turbocharged 5.5 liter powerplant, which delivers 544hp or 571hp (for the AMG Performance package) at 5,500 rpm and 800 Nm of torque between 2,000 and 4,500 rpm (900 Nm of torque between 2,250 and 3,750 rpm for the AMG Performance package).
Accelerating from zero to 62 mph is accomplished in 4.4 seconds, while top speed is recorded to be 250 km/h (300 km/h for the Performance package). Mercedes-Benz raised the price of the CL63 AMG by €7,900, offering the starting price from €135,100.
The CL65 AMG, which lies at the top of the range, is powered by a 6.0 liter V12 unit that produces 630 hp at 4,800 Nm and 1,000 Nm of torque between 2,300 and 4,300 Nm. The car is able to sprint from a standstill to 62 mph in 4.4 seconds and can reach a top speed of 250 km/h. Like the standard CL63 AMG, this is electronically limited. This model costs €191,450.
The latest Mercedes-Benz CL 65 AMG now has an appearance that is even more exclusive than ever. This is all due to a number of factors like the profiled bonnet and the swept-back front section. There is also the radiator grille that has been angled a bit more and its powerful headlamps.
There are also features that are now standard in the CL 65 AMG, an example of which is the Intelligent Light System with the bi-xenon headlamps. Also standard are the Adaptive Highbeam Assist and active light function. The front apron even has LED AMG-specific daytime driving lights. In addition, the horizontal grille slat is made more unique and is decorated with the upsized cooling air intakes with the chrome trim.
The AMG body style can easily be seen with the lower cross strut and the V-shape. However, the CL 65 AMG has been given a chrome-look finish, further enhancing its stylish appearance. This is complemented by the AMG rear apron which has a chrome-finished diffuser insert.
The new taillamps have the one-piece cover plates in red while the reversing headlamps are positioned just next to its license plate recess. The sports exhaust system in the CL 65 AMG is another highlight with its two twin tailpipes in chrome with a V12 design.
When it is looked at from the side, the mudguards with its "V12 BITURBO" lettering can easily be seen. The same is true for the double-spoke forged wheels in titanium grey with a high-sheen finish. The front wheels have the 255/35 R 20 tyres while the ones on the rear are fitted with the 275/35 R 20 tyres.
