450 kW/612 hp and 1000 Nm of torque make them the most powerful
models ever produced by AMG
- New 12-cylinder AMG bi-turbo engine
- A new dimension of performance
- Active Body Control specially optimised for AMG performance
- Exclusive features including 19-inch AMG wheels and fine Nappa
The new CL 65 AMG and S 65 AMG from Mercedes-AMG GmbH are the most
powerful models the brand has produced since it was established 35
years ago. The exclusive Gran Turismo and the dynamic luxury saloon
are powered by a newly designed six-litre V12 engine whose bi-turbo
technology gives it a level of performance previously unheard of in
this engine size class: the 12-cylinder AMG power plant has an output
of 450 kW/612 hp and develops its maximum torque of 1000 Nm between
2000 and 4000 rpm. These impressive figures are responsible for a
new dimension of performance: both vehicles can accelerate from 0
to 62.5 mph in 4.4 seconds and on to an electronically limited top
speed of 155 mph.
Much of the credit for this impressive performance is shared by the all-new design of the bi-turbo system, which features larger turbochargers and a new, more powerful charge-air cooling system, and the increase in the engine displacement (to 5980 cc) as well as many other engine design measures.
