When the new Mercedes CL will make its debut at this year’s Paris Motor Show, AMG will show their interpretation of the new coupe, the CL 63 AMG, equipped with all kinds of luxury features plus the 6.3-litre V8 returning 525 bhp.
Under the bonnet is an AMG 6.3-litre V8 engine that was devel-oped independently and delivers a maximum output of 525 hp and 464 lbs-ft of peak torque for guaranteed scintillating performance. A glance at the high-tech specification of this exceptional two-door coupé emphatically under-lines its exclusive status: in addition to the unmistakable AMG bodystyling and the AMG sports suspension based on Active Body Control, the AMG high-perfor-mance braking system is also fitted as standard. PRE-SAFE®, the anticipatory occupant protection system, is included too and may be supplemented by the addition of both the innovative new PRE-SAFE® Brake and DISTRONIC PLUS as an option.
The CL 63 AMG represents the highlight of Mercedes-AMG’s 2006 model initia-tive so far, which has encompassed ten brand new high-performance AMG models to date. At the heart of the eight-cylinder flagship model is the AMG 6.3-litre V8 engine.
From its displacement of 6208 cc, the high-revving, naturally aspirated drive unit musters up 525 hp at 6800 rpm and generates its peak torque of 464 lbs-ft at 5200 rpm. This gives the AMG powerpack a higher power-to-swept-volume and torque ratio than any other naturally aspirated series-produced eight-cylinder engine in the world. The CL 63 AMG is propelled from 0-60 in just 4.4 seconds, with top speed electronically limited to 155 mph.
