After images were leaked online earlier this month, Mercedes-Benz has finally given up the goods on its 2011 CL65 AMG.

6.0-litre V12 biturbo engine in the Mercedes-Benz CL65 AMG is one of the most powerful series production engines ever built.The twelve-cylinder engine produces 463 kW (630 hp) from a displacement of 5980 cc, and a maximum torque of 1000 Nm which remains constant between 2300 and 4300 rpm.The torque has been electronically limited to 1000 Nm from a possible 1200 Nm, to make allowances for the powertrain.Power transfer is handled by the AMG SPEEDSHIFT five-speed automatic transmission, which has three different drive modes.The CL65 AMG accelerates from zero to 100 km/h in 4.4 seconds, and achieves a top speed of 250 km/h (electronically limited).

The NEDC-combined fuel consumption of the Mercedes-Benz CL65 AMG is now 14.3 litres per 100 kilometres, which equates to a reduction of 0.2 litre per 100 km.The CO2 emissions of 334 grams per kilometre are 3.5 percent lower than those of the previous model (346 g/km).

The new Direct-Steer system with speed-sensitive power steering guarantees high levels of manoeuvrability and smooth control in all driving situations.Reliable deceleration performance comes courtesy of the AMG high-performance braking system based on the ADAPTIVE BRAKE system.Internally ventilated, perforated composite brake discs all round, with a diameter of 390 and 365 millimetres respectively, are combined with double floating brake callipers (front) and sliding frame-type callipers (rear) for maximum deceleration.

The Exclusive PASSION nappa leather upholstery with its distinctive AMG V12 diamond pattern design covers all four seats as well as the door center panels.Nappa leather also covers not only the entire instrument panel and seatback panels, but also the magazine pockets and the parcel shelf.In addition, Alcantara is used on the roof lining and also on the A and C-pillars.The AMG sports seats, which can be adjusted into many different positions, feature their own seat upholstery layout as well as active ventilation and heating, and also come with the Seat Comfort package: it includes active multicontour front seats with massage and dynamic functions, and also NECK-PRO luxury head restraints.Also fitted as standard on the front seats is the PRE-SAFE positioning function.

The new Mercedes-Benz CL65 AMG now features an even more exclusive appearance than ever before.An enhanced status is guaranteed thanks to the swept-back front section with profiled bonnet, the enlarged, more angled radiator grille and the powerful headlamps.Included as standard is the Intelligent Light System (ILS) with bi-xenon headlamps, active light function, Adaptive Highbeam Assist and AMG-specific LED daytime driving lights in the front apron.The upsized, chrome-trimmed cooling-air intake adorns a distinctive horizontal grille slat.The newly designed AMG bodystyling is easily recognizable thanks to the distinctive V-shape and the lower cross strut, which on the CL65 AMG has an exclusive chrome-look finish.This is matched by the AMG rear apron which boasts a diffuser insert which is also finished in chrome.Also new are the taillamps with one-piece red-colored cover plates and the reversing headlamps placed next to the licence plate recess.Another visual highlight comes in the form of the AMG sports exhaust system with two chrome twin tailpipes featuring a V12 design.

The wheels are fitted with 255/35 R20 tires at the front, and 275/35 R20 tires at the rear.When viewing the vehicle from the side, enthusiasts will discover not only the “V12 BITURBO” lettering on the mudguards, but also AMG double-spoke forged wheels, painted titanium grey and with a high-sheen finish.

Look for the CL65 to formally debut later this year at the Paris Motor Show.The Mercedes-Benz CL65 AMG has a sales price of 191,450 euros (excl. VAT) / 227,825 euros (incl. 19% VAT).
