The 2011 Mercedes-Benz CL63 AMG features the new 5.5-liter V8 biturbo engine with a peak output of 536 hp and 590 lb-ft of torque. With the optional AMG Performance Package, the performance increases to 563 hp and 664 lb-ft. The award-winning AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 7–speed sports transmission provides a considerable reduction in fuel consumption and emissions while simultaneously increasing maximum power and torque. With improved fuel economy, the new Mercedes-Benz CL63 AMG is more than 25 percent more efficient than the previous model with a naturally aspirated V8. The exclusive V12-powered CL65 AMG now has even more power, with 621 hp and 738 lb-ft.
The CL63 AMG marks the start of a new chapter in the “AMG Performance 2015″ drive strategy: Mercedes-AMG is continuing this impressive story and is meeting its promise to continuously reduce both the fuel consumption and emissions of new models with the new engine/transmission combination and stop/start technology – while also reaching new heights with the central AMG brand value of “performance”.
The Mercedes-Benz CL63 AMG delivers superior, sports car-level performance. Acceleration from 0-60 mph takes just 4.4 seconds, and has an electronically limited top speed of 155. With the optional AMG Performance Package, 0-60 takes just 4.3 seconds and top speed increases to an electronically limited 186 mph.
Seven gears, three driving modes and a rev-matching function: the power transmission of the CL63 AMG provides great emotional appeal and sheer driving pleasure. At the same time the AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 7-speed sports transmission provides a considerable improvement in fuel economy – and specifically in combination with the new Controlled Efficiency driving mode with stop/start function and generator management.
The Mercedes-Benz CL63 AMG boasts an additional amount of unique appointment details. The AMG instrument cluster now displays the words “AMG V8 BITURBO” on the screen after opening the driver’s door – a clear invitation to start the new eight-cylinder engine. Also new is the AMG sports steering wheel with silver-colored aluminum shift paddles, specially shaped grip area and perforated premium leather around the steering wheel spokes.
