2012 Mercedes-Benz CL-Class
2012 Mercedes-Benz CL-Class
The Mercedes-Benz CL is a supercoupe. It offers super handling, super acceleration, and super luxury all in one package. The CL's unique pillarless side glass gives an uninterrupted look into an exquisite interior. The front seats are both heated and ventilated and offer massage capability, while the sport seats in the AMG models feature active side bolsters that enlarge when the car is turning to enhance lateral support. By our measure, the entry-model CL550 is only for those who will drive their CL year-round in snowy climes--it is the only CL model with all-wheel drive. The CL we'd own is the eight-cylinder CL63 AMG from Mercedes' performance division. Last year, AMG's signature 6.2-liter V-8 was replaced by a 5.5-liter twin-turbo V-8 good for 536 hp. Opt for the AMG performance package, though, and power rises to 563 hp as torque jumps 74 lb-ft to a total of 664 lb-ft. The output boost is enough for the CL63 to match the 0-to-60-mph time of the CL65 AMG at 4.3 seconds. For customers who demand the ultimate in prestige, Mercedes offers not one but two smooth-spinning V-12 engines. It's worth noting that a top-spec CL sits in Bentley and Maserati territory when it comes to price, but we can't think of a compelling argument to choose either of those cars over the Merc. The CL's handling is remarkable, especially given its size--and even the base V-8 engine is powerful enough for the CL to keep up with sports cars on winding back roads.

Grand Touring: Mercedes-Benz Unveils New CL-Class Grand Edition
Mercedes-Benz’s CL-Class moniker stands for comfort and lightness – but the new CL-Class Grand Edition, which was announced earlier this morning, forgets the lightness and instead cranks up the CL’s comfort to an all-time high.

2012 Mercedes-Benz CL550 4Matic
We all know that the Mercedes-Benz CL is a fabulous ride with stunning design and the ability to sprint to 60 mph in less than 5 seconds (and that's the "base" CL550). But what I got to enjoy about the CL this time around is its excellent all-weather capability. Even on all-season tires, the all-wheel-drive CL550 easily tackled Ann Arbor's first real snowstorm of the season. You've actually got to be careful because the car insulates you so well from what's going on outside and on the road surface that it's easy to find yourself going faster than you should be on slippery surfaces. The heated steering wheel and seats and excellent defrosters made my snowy late-night drive home that much nicer. With winter tires on a CLS550, the only limiting factor in winter would be ground clearance.

BRABUS 800 Coupe CL600 Rear
Brabus Builds 800-HP Mercedes-Benz CL Coupe
German tuner Brabus one ups Mercedes-Benz’ own CL65 AMG by turning the CL600 into the Brabus 800 Coupe. The luxury coupe has been practically rebuilt at the tuner’s state-of-the-art shop. The car will bow at - where else - the 2011 Dubai Motor Show. Brabus engineers tore the CL600’s 5.5-liter V-12 apart and fitted it with a longer-stroke crankshaft and larger pistons sitting in enlarged cylinder bores. Displacement has grown to 6.3-liters. The cylinder heads have been massaged to optimize air flow and fuel mixture. The engine is finished with a set of special-grind camshafts. The factory turbochargers have been replaced with two larger units on custom exhaust manifolds designed by Brabus engineers. The turbine housings are integrated into the custom exhaust manifolds. To most efficiently cool the intake charge, four water-to-air intercoolers are used. Intake air is picked up by carbon-fiber ram-air intake integrated into the hood. Spent gas is expelled through a high-performance stainless-steel exhaust system with high-flow catalytic converters. The engine and turbo orchestration is controlled by a precision-tuned engine management system for maximum power and emissions compliance – the engine meets current EURO V standards. ARAL supplies the high-performance powertrain’s lubricants. The engine cranks out 800 horsepower at a low 5500 rpm and a massive 1047 pound-feet of torque at 2100 rpm. When fitted in the car, torque is electronically limited to 811 pound-feet. The engine is backed by a beefed-up old-school five-speed automatic transmission that sends power to a Brabus high-performance limited-slip differential. The factory Mercedes vehicle stability systems remain, but can be switched off with the touch of a button. So what is 800 horse and 811 pound-feet good for? Brabus claims the 800 Coupe will rip to 62 mph in just 3.9 seconds and to 124 mph in a mere 10.3. Top speed is governed at a ridiculous 217 mph. The German tuner didn’t neglect its stopping ability either. The 800 Coupe has been fitted with vented and drilled 16-inch front rotors and 15-inch rear rotors squeezed by six-piston front and four-piston rear calipers, respectively. The Brabus high-performance brake system hides behind the tuner’s monoblock wheels in a choice of 18- to 22-inch sizes. The car hunkers down on the rims thanks to the Brabus ride-height lowering module that is tuned for the extreme low-profile rubber and lowers the coupe one inch. The car has been fitted with several aerodynamic aides including a front spoiler, rear deck-lid spoiler, and rear lower fascia insert that features a central reflector and cutouts for the quad exhaust tips. Body add-ons were tested in a wind tunnel. The 800 Coupe is painted Diamond-White Metallic. Inside the luxury coupe’s white leather and black Alcantara have contrasting seams and diamond-pattern topstitching. A new ergonomic sport steering wheel join Brabus scuff plates with backlit logo, aluminum pedals, foot rest and shifter. Carbon-fiber pieces and “checkered flag” matte surfaces finish off the interior upgrades. The Brabus 800 Coupe can be ordered complete or you can have you current-generation CL600 retrofitted with the complete treatment. The price for this upgrade was not officially announced, but you can expect a hefty premium over the “standard” CL 600’s approximately $160,000 sticker. Source: BRABUS
