2011 Mercedes CL63 & CL65 Leaked


Ahead of the car's debut later this year, two photos of the updated 2011 Mercedes CL appear to have been leaked online. In particular, the two photos show the CL63 and CL65 high-performance AMG models. Both luxury coupes get the new Mercedes style with a more pronounced nose and flatter overall front end. New headlights are also a part of the package, as is a new lower front fascia and hood.

The most important changes to the 2011 CL Class cars are, however, not visible in these pictures.The CL63 is expected to do away with the relatively new 6.2-liter V8 in favor of a twin-turbo 5.5-liter V8 making 536-hp and 590 ft-lbs of torque. Those numbers will climb to 563-hp and 664 ft-lbs of torque with the AMG Performance Package. There's no word on what changes are planned for the CL65.

Following the debut of the AMG models, likely at the Paris Auto Show in September, Mercedes will then announce a CL550 model, using the company's new twin-turbo 4.7-liter V8 (replacing the 5.5-liter V8), which makes 435-hp and 516 ft-lbs of torque, an increase of 12 percent more power and 35 percent more torque, while delivering 22 percent improved fuel economy.

There are such nice cars but I have never really seen much use for them because a maxed out C65 will probably end up costing well over 200K. If you want a luxury car go with the S and if you want something sporty/fast get a SLS. I guess its a pretty good comprimise between the two but still...

I would get a maxed out CL65 over a LOT of other really nice, and really expensive vehicles out there. The CL, (in my opinion) is one of the rarest MBZs that drive around (in upstate NY anyways), yet have some of the cleanest, smoothest, sexiest body lines out there....just my opinion : )

As far as exclusivity goes, as well as some of the design things your right. Finding a CL made in the last 2 years is like finding a needle in a hay stack. I'm even more surprised when I see a Ferrari or Lambo (when I visit Toronto)

LEDs???

Not a fan of those integrated headlight LEDs, I think they cheapen a very clean and classy car. They shouldn't have tried to fix something that wasn't broken!
