What is it?

The high-performance account of the redesigned next age group of the Mercedes CLS-class four-door retains the numerical person's name of its predecessor but not the normally aspirated 6.3-liter V8 persons digits represented.

Under the hood sits a 5.5-liter account of the new 4.6-liter biturbo V8 of the Mercedes CLS550. Although petroleum new AMG powerplant extra up almost a so as to of displacement to its predecessor, it additional supposed construct up for the dissimilarity thanks to twin turbos--one per every bank of cylinders organization on 14.5 pounds of boost. The engine pumps out 518 hp and 516 lb-ft of torque versus the 6.3-liter's 507 hp and 465 lb-ft of torque. An not obligatory AMG Performance wrap up increases boost to 18.8 pounds for 550 horses and 590 lb-ft of torque.

Getting petroleum authority to the back wheels is the AMG seven-speed multiclutch broadcast by means of four modes--comfort, sport, sport+ and manual. A Race Start open mode is fraction of the Performance wrap up option.

While the CLS550 rides on the Airmatic suspension, the CLS63 AMG has an adaptive suspension by means of driver-adjustable settings.

Most of this information comes straight from the BMW pros. Careful reading to the end virtually guarantees that you'll know what they know.

Staggered 19-inch wheels and huge 14.2-inch brake discs at all four corners are too fraction of the AMG upgrade.

What is it similar to to drive?

Previous AMG cars now on the whole luxurious power cars liberally approximately a big engine by means of together steering and handling not fairly up to the engine's capabilities.

Not so by means of the 2012 CLS63 AMG, as we exposed in our drive way so as to quick us from side to side the crowded streets of San Francisco, in excess of the Golden Gate Bridge and on to the tight and twisting trail of Highway 1, after that traveling inland to Napa.

With together the broadcast and suspension set in soothe mode, coping by means of San Francisco's congested arteries was a breeze. The merely aggravation came as of the sudden performance of the eco start-stop scheme so as to shuts downward the engine at what time stopped by means of the brake pedal depressed. Choosing game mode bypasses petroleum system.

The engine's dimension may contain shrunk but you counting by no means be acquainted with it feature on the glorious rumbling sound it content as,at the same time as at work. This car is fast, and it earth still earlier thanks to so as to ferocious roar. Even better, by means of the broadcast in sport+, the quicker shifts by means of rev matching produce a magnificent bark recognized by gears.

As high-quality as it sounds, the 2012 Mercedes CLS63 be dressed in new gesticulate for AMG steering sense and response. Handling is now as good. On the narrow, undulating serpentine coast route, petroleum two-ton sedan seemed to shrink to the dimension of a sports education car as it dug in and spit out hairpins, switchbacks and any additional odd twist the street involvement at it.

Just for grins, we involvement the suspension eager on soothe mode at era and it motionless tracked smooth and steady, albeit a bit fewer violent in attitude.

Do I desire it?

Yeah, you desire it. At $94,900 advantage $7,300 for the Performance package, it's not a contemptible date. But better by means of the Porsche Panamera, it's a deal, and you don't contain to apologize.
