Latest News Releases



THE NEW CLS55 AMG “IWC INGENIEUR�
55 Units with Particularly Exclusive Equipment

MONTVALE, N.J. – In cooperation with the Swiss watchmaker IWC Schaffhausen, Mercedes-AMG has developed an exclusive model known as the CLS55 AMG “IWC Ingenieur.� Only 55 units of the unique four-door coupe will be produced for the United States. The car has a powerful AMG 5.5-liter supercharged V8 engine and boasts exclusive equipment details. The design of the newly designed AMG instrument cluster is based on the new “Ingenieur� watch family from IWC, which made its world debut at the Geneva watch show on April 5, 2005. The 55 units of the CLS55 AMG “IWC Ingenieur� will each be customized at AMG in Affalterbach, Germany, and the first deliveries will be made in fall 2005.

The CLS55 AMG “IWC Ingenieur� features an exclusive dark titanium grey metallic exterior finish. All of the exterior decorative elements, including the radiator grille louvers, fog light rings, side window bezels, handle inserts and rear trim, come in the same matte titanium color, which matches the top-quality titanium case of the new “Ingenieur AMG� watch from IWC.

19-Inch AMG Light-Alloy Wheels with a Five-Spoke Titanium Look

The side view of the vehicle is also visually appealing. Its 19-inch AMG light-alloy wheels in a five-spoke design also have a matte titanium look, harmonizing with the vehicle’s exterior finish. In combination with the tires (255/35R 19 at the front and 285/30R 19 at the rear), the AMG wheels not only provide a look to be coveted, but also guarantee optimized handling.

In addition, the superlative coupe design of the CLS55 AMG “IWC Ingenieur� is defined by the muscular AMG styling, including the dynamically-contoured front apron with large air inlets and circular fog lights, side-skirt panels and a distinctive rear apron with a particularly sporty diffuser. The oval twin tailpipes of the AMG sports exhaust system make a strong final impression. The stylishly integrated AMG spoiler lip in the trunk lid reduces the lift acting on the rear axle by about 30 percent, which contributes to better driving stability at high speeds.



AMG Instrument Cluster Speaks the Design Language of IWC’s “Ingenieur AMG�

The exclusive nature of the new CLS55 AMG “IWC Ingenieur� is also apparent in its interior. One striking feature here is the completely redesigned AMG instrument cluster. With rhodanized and silver needles, white lighting and black dials with a new typographical style, the cluster’s analog clock, speedometer and tachometer are designed in line with IWC’s new “Ingenieur AMG� watch. The titanium shade of the watchcase is repeated in the edge trim and the decorative rings of the AMG instrument cluster. The IWC logo integrated into the analog clock refers to the partnership with Mercedes-AMG.

In contrast to the series-produced version of the CLS55 AMG, the limited-edition vehicle boasts decorative elements in high-quality piano lacquer. The intricate exterior finish, which involves applying several layers of black and varnish, results in a particular deep, luscious sheen. Furthermore, the “IWC Ingenieur� lettering is inlaid on the cover of the storage compartment in the center console, adding an extra touch of exclusivity.

AMG Sports Seats with Nappa Leather Upholstery in a Titanium Look

The electrically-adjustable AMG sports seats with multi-contour function, memory function and seat heating feature the characteristic AMG upholstery piping and perforation pattern with double stitching. They are covered in the finest exclusive Nappa leather with a titanium look. Matte titanium AMG emblems are set into the seat backs.

Interior Decorative Elements in Matte Titanium - New AMG Ergonomic Sports Steering Wheel

A further difference from the series-produced CLS55 AMG is the vehicle’s chrome elements, all of which are galvanized in matte titanium. The roof liner in anthracite Alcantara also adds to the special atmosphere. Piping galvanized with matte titanium can be found on the interior door panels, and the door tread panels with AMG lettering illuminated in white also feature a titanium look. The AMG emblems on the gear selector lever are also in matte titanium. Each of the 55 automobiles is equipped with the Keyless-Go system, and a new AMG ergonomic sports steering wheel with a strikingly molded rim in black Nappa leather comes as standard.

Highly qualified AMG employees in Affalterbach will be responsible for customizing the 55 units of the CLS55 AMG “IWC Ingenieur.�

Cooperation between Mercedes-AMG GmbH and IWC Schaffhausen

The CLS55 AMG “IWC Ingenieur� is the result of the partnership between Mercedes-AMG GmbH and IWC Schaffhausen that was agreed on October 1, 2004. Both companies are known for their passion for the highest precision combined with a sense of understatement. Mercedes-AMG and IWC Schaffhausen each place great emphasis on precision engineering, high technology and craftsmanship, as guaranteed by products that meet the highest expectations in terms of quality.



A new watch named the IWC “Ingenieur AMG� has been launched to complement the CLS55 AMG “IWC Ingenieur.� This robust, sporty timepiece is available in five variants: an “Ingenieur Automatic AMG� in titanium with a titanium strap or a soft black strap; an “Ingenieur Chronograph AMG� in titanium with a titanium strap or a soft black strap; and a limited-edition “IWC Ingenieur Automatic CLS55 AMG,� of which only 55 have been made. This model is available exclusively to customers of the CLS55 AMG “IWC Ingenieur.� Each timepiece has a red minute graduation and a titanium casing with the AMG logo engraved on the back. The “Ingenieur Automatic AMG� additionally has a red second hand, while the “Ingenieur Chronograph AMG� features a red stop hand. Like every “IWC Ingenieur,� these models are equipped with a robust high-precision movement, and their sophisticated waterproofing system means that they are waterproof to depths of up to 120 meters. The very first IWC “Ingenieur� was produced in 1955, and only 1,000 were ever made. Today they are sought-after collectors’ items.
