Photos of the 2010 / 2011 Mercedes CL63 AMG and CL65 AMG have leaked ahead of the official reveal.
We had the first picture of the 2011 Mercedes CL AMG a few weeks back, which prompted Mercedes to get their act together on the 2010 / 2011 CL Facelift details and ship those out to us ahead of the offficial debut at Goodwood last weekend.
But what Mercedes didn’t send us were photos of the CL63 AMG or the CL65 AMG. And they said that both AMG models would be available by special order. But this is 2010, so things like this won’t stay hidden for long. And they haven’t.
The picture you see at the top is the 2011 Mercedes CL65 AMG and there’s front and back shots of the CL63 and CL65 in the small gallery below. Thank you Autoblog Italia.
This facelifted CL AMG isn’t as dramatically different to the CL500 as it used to be, probably because the new Merceds CL500 has gone up a notch or two on the butch scale itself.
The CL63 gets mesh under the front bumper, 19″ alloys, butch-er body kit and squared-off oval exhaust pipes. We’re pretty sure it gets the new 5.5 litre twin turbo – which Mercedes are using to replace the old 6.2 litre lump – offering up 545 horses, 590lb/ft of torque and better performance than before.
The CL65 AMG looks a bit like a blinged CL63 with extra chrome, but under the bonnet it gets the 6.0 litre twin turbo V12 with almost 100 horses more than the CL63 and an extra 150 or so torques.
The CL is starting to feel like a dinosaur. But it is still very appealing.
