This is the new CLS63, using the all-new 6208cc V8 already fitted to the CLK and E-class and rolling out across the Benz line-up. It replaces the supercharged 5.4-litre CLS55 AMG, which with 469bhp was hardly slothful.
It can. The German buyers don't like huge spoilers, scoops and other adornments that have precious little effect on the car's dynamics. Besides, the CLS looks outrageous enough without the Max Power treatment. There are changes, though. The wheels are big to accommodate larger brake discs, the front air dam is wider to provide more cooling. Form follows function. Underneath the CLS63 is anything but subtle. That mighty V8 is an act of God. It produces 514bhp at 6100rpm and a whopping 465lb ft of torque. That's more than a Lamborghini Gallardo. All this is channelled through monster 285/35 R18 rubber and a seven-speed auto gearbox.

RE: Mercedes CLS63 AMG CAR review
Great car on paper. Dashboard's a bit shoddy looking though, but suits the overweight businessman who'll probably buy it. Jag do wood interiors much better. No doubt the car itself is something quite special however.
