With a design perfected through the greatest sense of style, exclusive appointments and cutting-edge technology, the extensively updated 2011 Mercedes-Benz CL-Class reinforces its claim to supremacy as the ultimate in automotive refinement.
The exterior of the new CL generation is characterized by the dramatic profile of the hood, the dynamic V-shape radiator grille and sweeping headlamps — design details that discreetly but effectively emphasize the car’s elegant yet powerful lines. The front bumper presents a new design with three air intake openings and a chrome trim strip.
The new V8 biturbo engine in the 2011 CL550 4MATIC features BlueDIRECT technology and delivers impressive power. The eight-cylinder engine produces 429 horsepower with torque of 516 lb.-ft.
The CL600, with its 510-hp 12-cylinder biturbo engine, accelerates the luxury coupe from a standstill to 60 mph in an impressive 4.5 seconds.
The 2011 CL63 AMG features the new 5.5-liter V8 biturbo engine with a peak output of 536 hp and 590 lb.-ft. of torque. The award-winning AMG 7-speed sports transmission provides a considerable reduction in fuel consumption. The exclusive V12-powered CL65 AMG now has even more power, with 621 hp and 738 lb.-ft. of torque.
A combination of cutting-edge camera and radar-based assistance systems such as the innovative Active Lane Keeping Assist and the Active Blind Spot Assist make the CL a “thinking” partner of the driver. The modified Active Body Control (ABC) with crosswind stabilization system and the Direct-Steer system also contribute to enhancing safety and driving enjoyment.
