I know that the CL is basically a two-door S-class, but the 6.2-liter AMG V-8 seems much more appropriate here than in the S63 AMG. The overall package is nicely balanced but not as crazy ostentatious as a V-12-powered CL. I agree with Gluckman about the beauty of this car, but the cut-rate price of the smaller C63 is the only thing that would tempt me to choose it over this sexy beast. Truthfully, I love any car on the current S/CL platform, no matter what heat they're packing, but I think the CL63 is my favorite of this impressive bunch.
