Here it is, the Mercedes-Benz CL65 AMG. This is for the privileged few who want exclusivity as well as an atomic bomb under their right foot. The CL in general was face lifted last week and introduced some rather welcome additions to the car’s interior and a few tweaks to the exterior. Though this cars twin-turbo 6.0 litre V12 is a burnished specimen of perfection, it is identical to the cars predecessor and so disappoints us slightly.
Though being disappointed with that 603BHP engine is like being disappointed with a solid gold bar for being too heavy. Some things that have changed on the CL65 AMG include those new aggressive lines on the body, some garish chrome on the front and rear bumpers, those seductive 20 inch alloys and quartet new exhaust pipes nestled in the diffuser.
