Mercedes Benz CL65 AMG 2011

Mercedes Benz had launched the 2011 CL65 AMG way back in 2010 along with its lesser twin brother the CL63 AMG. The car comes with impeccable style and performance, which is almost synonymous with anything that Mercedes creates. The 2011 Mercedes Benz CL65 AMG incorporates many a changes to the car compared to the earlier models. These changes range from visual styling changes to changes in engine capacity as well as performance of the car.

2011 Mercedes Benz CL65 AMG has been equipped with a new engine in the AMG 6.0 liter Bi-Turbo V12, which is one of the most powerful engines to have equipped any Mercedes vehicle. This 12-cylinder beast is capable of producing a peak power of 630 HP (463kW) with a displacement of 5980cc. The torque of the engine has been limited to 1000Nm, but it can produce a max torque of 1200Nm. The engine is undoubtedly the most outstanding feature of the 2011 CL65 AMG. It is believed that engineers at Mercedes took cues from racing cars while developing this engine. Apart from power, another striking feature of this V12 is that it delivers power to the wheels on all speed ranges effortlessly. With all this power, the engine is surpassingly quiet as well. The car comes with a five-speed automatic transmission. Despite this robust power of the engine, the CL65 is surprisingly nimble on the road and easy to handle.

With this powerful V12 under its hood, the 2011 CL65 AMG accelerates to 60mph from zero in just 4.4 seconds. The car comes with a top speed of 155mph.

The difference between the CL65 AMG and its younger brother, the CL63 AMG lies in a few design differences and in the great power of the CL65. Most of the standard features in both the vehicles are same, which includes the COMAND system with GPS navigation and 40GB hard disc, Bluetooth Connectivity, Harman Kardon speakers, LOGIC7 surround sound system, bi-xenon headlamps, electric sunroof etc. The car comes designed with the AMG specific interior which includes heated leather seats, aluminum paddles, and a completely new instrument panel.

The car is now available at a price of 191,450 euros (excluding VAT) all over the world.

Automobile enthusiasts with a sense of the spectacular have long held it in high regard - the Mercedes-Benz CL65 AMG. This dream car with the powerful V12 engine and exquisite appointments is synonymous with exclusive performance and exclusive style. The same applies to the revised model which not only features a number of new visual highlights, but also boasts an increase in power from 450 kW (612 hp) to 463 kW (630 hp), as well as a reduction in both fuel consumption and emissions.

The AMG 6.0-litre V12 biturbo engine in the Mercedes-Benz CL65 AMG is one of the most powerful series production engines ever built. The twelve-cylinder engine produces 463 kW (630 hp) from a displacement of 5980 cc, and a maximum torque of 1000 Nm which remains constant between 2300 and 4300 rpm. The torque has been electronically limited to 1000 Nm from a possible 1200 Nm, to make allowances for the powertrain. The unrivalled superiority can be experienced over every single kilometre: the AMG V12 engine is characterised by effortless power delivery in all engine speed ranges and an exciting engine sound, all coupled with supreme refinement. The exceptional power of the AMG twelve-cylinder engine is evident from the performance data: the CL65 AMG accelerates from zero to 100 km/h in 4.4 seconds, and achieves a top speed of 250 km/h (electronically limited).

AMG has made a number of additional detailed enhancements to the AMG 6.0-litre V12 biturbo engine for the new CL65 AMG. The engine experts at AMG achieved the increase in output from 450 kW (612 hp) to 463 kW (630 hp) thanks to new exhaust gas turbochargers. The inlet diameter of the compressor housing and also the exhaust gas ducts have been enlarged, and the resulting increase in air throughput, together with the new engine electronics, has resulted in an increase of 13 kW (28 hp). The maximum charge-air pressure is 1.5 bars.
