The 2011 facelift version of the Mercedes CL-Class will make its world debut this weekend at the Goodwood Festival of Speed. Yes, we did say the CL-Class and not the S-Class Coupe as was rumored. The new CL-Class comes with an improved exterior and interior, but the biggest changes are found under the hood.

The exterior gets a new grille, bi-xenon headlights with LED technology, LED fog lamps, revised fenders and hood, and new exhaust pipes. On the interior the biggest change is the addition of a new wood trim. The new CL-Class will also be offered with all the latest technologies including: Active Blind Spot Assist, Attention Assist, Active Lane Keeping Assist, Night View Assist Plus, and Active Body Control.

The model line-up starts with an entry-level CL550 4Matic powered by a 4.6 liter V8 direct-injected engine that delivers 429 HP and 516 lb-ft of torque. The engine is mated to a seven speed automatic transmission and sprints the car from 0 to 60 mph in 4.9 seconds. The top version, CL600 gets a twin-turbo 5.5 liter V12 engine with a total output of 510 HP and 612 lb-ft of torque. It sprints from 0 to 60 mph in 4.5 seconds. Both vehicles are limited to 155 mph.

The AMG versions include the CL63 AMG that is powered by a new twin turbo, direct injection V8 engine with a total output of 536 HP and 590 lb-ft of torque and the CL65 AMG gets a V12 engine that delivers 621 HP and 738 lb-ft of torque.

A minor facelift as far as we can tell, but we guess it is still considered one. The biggest selling point would have to be the added technologies and not the slightly adjusted facial expression.

Sales will begin in the USA this fall.
