The 2008 Mercedes-Benz CL65 AMG is a new model in AMG's lineup.
Power for the new car comes from a AMG 6.0-liter V12 biturbo
engine taken from the S65 AMG and SL65
AMG twelve-cylinder models. Its maximum output of 612 bhp
and maximum torque of 738 lb-ft allow the CL65 AMG to hit 62
mph in 4.4 seconds and reach 155 mph (electronically limited).
The characteristic AMG twelve-cylinder sound is ensured by fitting
the CL65 AMG with a sports exhaust system with two twin chromed
V12-design tailpipes. catalytic converters with tri-metallic
coating provide a faster response from a cold start, more efficient
exhaust-gas aftertreatment and a longer service life.
The drive power of the new CL65 AMG is transmitted to the wheels
by the AMG Speedshipt five-speed automatic transmission with
AMG steering-wheel gearshift paddles and Direct Select gearshift.
An "S/C/M" mode button in the center console allows
the driver to choose between the "Sport", "Comfort"
and "Manual" driving programs.
Aerodynamic enhancements made to the Mercedes-Benz CL65 AMG
include large air intakes, side air outlets and round fog lamps
with chrome surrounds which dominate the front, as do the special
AMG radiator grille with two horizontal chrome louvers and the
darkened bi-xenon headlamps. Distinctive side skirts and "V12
BITURBO" lettering enhance the sides while the two twin
chromed V12-design tailpipes and the muscular rear apron with
its black diffuser insert make the rear of the vehicle particularly
