Mercedes-Benz CL65 AMG Overview

At the top of the Mercedes-Benz range rests the CL65 AMG coupe. The ultimate tool for hedonists, the CL65 virtually mirrors the similarly AMG-tuned S65 sedan with the exception of one feature: rear seat practicality. While the CL65's rear seat is cosseting and luxurious compared to most cars, there's no question that buyers of this large coupe are looking for a personal luxury tool, not a family car. The CL65 features an earth-shattering 738 pound-feet of torque from its turbocharged 6.0 liter V12 engine, and an equally impressive 604 horsepower. Hooked up to one of the strongest 5-speed automatic transmissions ever built, this power train hurdles the CL65 faster than its 4,500 pound curb weight would suggest. Standard mercedes cl-class accessories include ventilated seats, Night View Assist, adaptive cruise control, 14-way seat adjustment, nine airbags, an active and driver-adjustable suspension and Mercedes' latest COMAND audio and navigation system.
