Carlsson will present in Frankfurt the CK65 Eau Rouge Limited Edition, a model based on the Mercedes-Benz CL 65 AMG.
Two special events make 2007 a particularly significant year for Mercedes-AMG: the arrival of a new top model – the CL65 AMG high-performance coupe with its 450 kW /612 hp V12 engine – which rounds off the unique AMG range and which also, in "40th Anniversary" limited edition guise, marks a special anniversary: the high-performance brand of the Mercedes Car Group (MCG) celebrates its 40th birthday in 2007.
The launch of the new CL-Class in autumn 2006 will be the culmination of a Mercedes-Benz coupÃ© tradition going back over 50 years. The two-door model combines peerless exclusivity and charismatic design with the sort of cutting-edge technology that no other manufacturer can match worldwide. The luxury CoupÃ© raises the bar in terms of vehicle safety with the PRE-SAFEÂ® brakes: the unique system automatically brakes the CoupÃ© before an imminent rear-end collision. Furthermore, Mercedes innovations such as the Active Body Control (ABC) suspension system, the Intelligent Light System with five light-ing functions and PRE-SAFEÂ® anticipatory occupant protection all come as standard. Two powerful engines with 8 or 12 cylinders are available, delivering a notable increase in output and torque. Thanks to their exemplary smoothness they also live up to the Mercedes heritage of superb motoring refinement.
