Mercedes-Benz CL 55 AMG

As with all major German manufacturers, with the exception of Porsche, Mercedes limits their cars to 155 mph. This of course is not preferred by many owners and drivers as some have even gone so far as to find ways to override the limitation. However, for the sake of safety, this is a good thing. Although, one must then wonder how the speed of 155mph was determined to be the cut-off speed. What exactly changes at 155mph that makes vehicle more or less safe? The next question becomes why buy such a nice car if it is artificially limited anyway. The justification for having two models with the same power is that one may be sportier and more responsive, while the other may be more luxurious with a smoother ride. For the true car enthusiasts, the CL AMG is made to order in very small numbers, and is the most powerful CL to date. 1The Mercedes-Benz CL-Class is a grand touring vehicle produced by the German automaker for the performance hog. The present generation of the CL-Class is currently available in a few models: the CL500, the CL550 and the CL600. In the future, buyers can expect a C216, CL63 AMG and a CL65 AMG. The third generation of the CL is the W215-chassis coupe, which hung around between 2000 and 2006. It was based on the Mercedes-Benz S-Class, though it does ride on an 8-inch shorter wheelbase. The CL coupes come equipped with the up-to-the-minute Mercedes-Benz technology, and the CL is always the first model to receive new technological features as they are developed and discovered. In fact, it introduced the refined Active Body Control fully active suspension system and Bi-Xenon HID lights. This car, as with the others in the line, is very popular among drivers of all needs and desires, thus building Benz’s reputation for being a go to company for all cars.
