Mercedes-Benz CL65 AMG

Rumor is the CL-Class won’t be here much longer. It’s being incorporated into the S-Class line, adopting the new S-Class’s threads, technologies and other advancements, but retain­ing the design of a long two-door. It will take the name of S-Class Coupe, standing as one of a variety of new body styles that also includes a Maybach-replacing limo; it may even serve as the base for an S-Class convertible. Until we see what they have in store, the CL sol­diers with neither all-wheel drive nor a road-sensing suspension. Thafs to say, it’s the same over-the-top delight, a low-volume, grand-touring coupe that’s big on front passenger space and even bigger on torque. Like the SL, it spools up an unabashed 738 foot-pounds of torque for extreme speeds and bragging rights. You don’t need option boxes when everything is standard. Infrared night-vision system, rear-view camera, crosswind stabiliza­tion, active suspension, if’s all there, working with greater levels of wood and leather trim and a massive V-12 engine for relaxed, high-speed cruising at its finest. Well, until it comes as an S-Class.Mercedes-Benz CL65 AMG photoMercedes-Benz CL65 AMG photo1Mercedes-Benz CL65 AMG interior
