Mercedes-Benz has a long history in luxury coupes that dates back to the early 1950's. Each generation of coupes have been on the cutting edge of luxury, technology, and performance. The V-8 powered CL 550 has an ample 429-bhp, while the V-12 CL 600 has an even more generous 510-bhp. As the flagship luxury coupe from Mercedes, the CL offers a dizzying variety of trim options. There is no denying the understated power and grace of this stunning coupe. In the stratospheric $100K+ coupe market, the CL retains its status as the benchmark in its class.

What Changed:

The CL-Class is restyled. Exterior changes include a new hood, fenders and grille and integrated exhaust pipes. The CL550 now includes a new 4.6l V8 engine and the CL63 now equips a new turbocharged 5.5l V8. Both engines are smaller, yet more powerful and fuel efficient than their predecessors.
