Mated to a seven-speed adaptive automatic transmission , the engine propels the car from zero to 60 in only 4.9 seconds and returns 23 percent reduction in CO2 emissions and an improvement of up to 15 percent in fuel economy. Following next is the 2011 CL63 AMG with a new twin-turbo 5.5-liter GDI V8, fitted with an AMG MCT gearbox that together churn out 536 hp and 590 lb-ft.
From the V12 section comes the 2011 CL600 with its twin-turbo 5.5-liter V12, which delivers 510 hp and 612 lb-ft and does 0-60 in 4.5 seconds with top speed electronically limited to 130 mph. Finally, we have the CL65 AMG with 621 hp and 738 lb-ft.
Changes to the exterior consist of revised bonnet and grille, newly designed bumper with three air intake openings and a chrome trim strip, and of course LED daytime running lights, and new tail lamps. The biggest change however is the new headlights, which feature Intelligent Light System (ILS) and Adaptive Highbeam Assist as standard.
The CL Class will show up in the U.S. in the fall.
