    First Drives >> Mercedes-Benz CL63 AMG

    Quote:
    Yes, another AMG, and no, there's no stopping them. Not that we're complaining. When the CL63 AMG arrives here next March it will be the thirteenth model in the AMG line-up (the S63, which we'll report on next week, is the fourteenth) and frankly, it's bloody marvellous.

    This engine sounds gorgeous. We'll never know how it passed European noise regulations we'll never know, but every penny was money well spent.

    At idle its low-rev wobwobwob soundtrack sounds bruising and menacing. In the mid-range those four exhaust pipes pump out a crisp and clean howl. But it's nudging its 7200rpm redline that the engine sounds its satanic best - a serrated banshee wail that can be heard for miles before the car rockets into view.

    And it burbles and crackles on the overrun. When was the last time you could say that about a micro-processed catalytic-converted de-smogged car?

    Re: First Drives >> Mercedes-Benz CL63 AMG

    The truth is that the car in Paris looked really well. Very aggressive, and quite strange for a Mercedes.... Also I'm surprised that at Mercedes they made a car with an exhaust like this....

    Re: First Drives >> Mercedes-Benz CL63 AMG

    getting my cl(500 albeit with the amg pack) on the 20th same color combo as above......looking forward to it

    Re: First Drives >> Mercedes-Benz CL63 AMG

    The 500 should have plenty of power. 388 bhp s nothing to sneeze at.

    Re: First Drives >> Mercedes-Benz CL63 AMG

    Also getting CL550 w/AMG body kit upon US arrival in early Nov....but really can't wait for my CL63 upon ?Spr07 US arrival....

    63 sounds awesome....linear power delivery, great exhaust note, precise steering, paddleshifters, powerful brakes, class-leading safety techs .....only major weakness of '07 SL65 that I hope MB fixes in CL63 is the awful brake pedal feel ....already wrote to MB, asking them to emulate 997TT PCCB/599 CCM brake pedal feel: the world's best.....

    Re: First Drives >> Mercedes-Benz CL63 AMG

    Great post, thanks.

    Re: First Drives >> Mercedes-Benz CL63 AMG

    The CL is growing on me. Don't know why, but it is.
