Mercedes CLS 63 AMG

The Mercedes CLS is a gussied-up E-class that manages to be much more than the sum of its parts. The CLS looks like a coupe, goes like a coupe, but retains four doors and nearly all of the practicality. Puts a little sex-appeal back into the Merc range without ending up at the door of the SLR.

 

 The 2012 Mercedes-Benz CLS63 AMG is powered by a M157 5.5L twin-turbocharged V8 making 518-hp with a maximum torque of 516 lb-ft of torque. Adding the AMG Performance Package increases output to 550-hp and a peak torque of 590 lb-ft. Mated to a AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 7-speed Sports Transmission, 0 to 60 mph comes in 4.4 seconds and 4.3 seconds with the AMG package. Top speed is clocked in at 186 mph.
