(continued from above)

The AMG 6.0-liter V12 biturbo engine in the Mercedes-Benz CL65 AMG is one of the most powerful series production engines ever built. The twelve-cylinder engine produces 612 hp from a displacement of 5980 cc, and a maximum torque of 738 lb-ft which remains constant between 2300 and 4300 rpm. The torque has been electronically limited to 738 lb-ft from a possible 885 lb-ft, to make allowances for the powertrain. The unrivalled superiority can be experienced over every single mile: the AMG V12 engine is characterized by effortless power delivery in all engine speed ranges and an exciting engine sound, all coupled with supreme refinement. The exceptional power of the AMG twelve-cylinder engine is evident from the performance data: the Mercedes-Benz CL65 AMG accelerates from zero to 60 mph in 4.3 seconds, and achieves a top speed of 155 mph (electronically limited).

AMG has made a number of additional detailed enhancements to the AMG 6.0-liter V12 biturbo engine for the new Mercedes-Benz CL65 AMG. New exhaust gas turbochargers have been installed. The inlet diameter of the compressor housing and also the exhaust gas ducts have been enlarged, and the resulting increase in air throughput, together with the new engine electronics, has resulted in an increase of horsepower. The maximum charge-air pressure is 1.5 bars.

CL65 AMG's New Design

The new Mercedes-Benz CL65 AMG now features an even more exclusive appearance than ever before. An enhanced status is guaranteed thanks to the swept-back front section with profiled bonnet, the enlarged, more angled radiator grille and the powerful headlamps. Included as standard is the Intelligent Light System (ILS) with bi-xenon headlamps, active light function, Adaptive Highbeam Assist and AMG-specific LED daytime driving lights in the front apron. The upsized, chrome-trimmed cooling-air intake adorns a distinctive horizontal grille slat. The newly designed AMG bodystyling is easily recognizable thanks to the distinctive V-shape and the lower cross strut, which on the CL65 AMG has an exclusive chrome-look finish. This is matched by the AMG rear apron which boasts a diffuser insert which is also finished in chrome. Also new are the taillamps with one-piece red-colored cover plates and the reversing headlamps placed next to the licence plate recess. Another visual highlight comes in the form of the AMG sports exhaust system with two chrome twin tailpipes featuring a V12 design.

When viewing the vehicle from the side, enthusiasts will discover not only the "V12 BITURBO" lettering on the mudguards, but also AMG double-spoke forged wheels, painted titanium grey and with a high-sheen finish. The wheels are fitted with 255/35 R20 tires at the front, and 275/35 R20 tires at the rear.

The Interior

The exclusive position held by the Mercedes-Benz CL65 AMG within the AMG model range is also highlighted by the vehicle's exquisite and perfectly finished interior appointments: the Exclusive PASSION nappa leather upholstery with its distinctive AMG V12 diamond pattern design covers all four seats as well as the door center panels. Nappa leather also covers not only the entire instrument panel and seatback panels, but also the magazine pockets and the parcel shelf. In addition, Alcantara is used on the roof lining and also on the A and C-pillars. The AMG sports seats, which can be adjusted into many different positions, feature their own seat upholstery layout as well as active ventilation and heating, and also come with the Seat Comfort package: it includes active multicontour front seats with massage and dynamic functions, and also NECK-PRO luxury head restraints. Also fitted as standard on the front seats is the PRE-SAFE positioning function.
