Mercedes CLS 63-S AMG

Mercedes CLS 63-S AMG Airport

REVIEW

Mercedes have a very successful recipe for their AMG models, and they don’t seem to be straying too far from it sensibly. Big car, big engine, big power seems to be the formula and the latest CLS doesn’t disappoint. It may have lost some of the classical beauty of the old CLS, but it is still a striking machine with the sweeping roofline and muscular wheelarches. Unfortunately Mercedes have decided to remove our favourite AMG engine from the CLS (the 6.2 V8), but fear not – they have replaced it with a powerplant of equal standing. Still a V8, this new engine follows the trend of downsizing to a new 5.5 litres, but adds two turbochargers to give it the kind of power expected of an AMG – 579bhp & 590lb/ft of torque. As standard the CLS63-S AMG has staggering pace with 0-60 mph taking just 4.1 seconds. Top speed is the usual German 155mph, but can be raised to 185mph. Once again Mercedes have created a saloon that can crush continents with a single press of the accelerator…** Cash alternative: 80% of the ex-VAT UK RRP **
