Mercedes-Benz CL 65 AMG

The third generation of the CL is the W215 chassis coupe, which was offered from 2000 until 2006. It is based on the 2004 Mercedes-Benz S- Class, though it does ride on an 8-inch shorter wheelbase. It is available as four models: the V8-powered CL 500, the supercharged V8-powered CL 55 AMG, the V12-powered CL 600 and the rare bi-turbo V12-powered CL 65 AMG. The limited edition V12-powered CL 63 AMG was only sadly sold in 2001. The reason for the short selling season is not directly known. Perhaps just to keep the production numbers low, so that the model retains its special edition status. All of the aforementioned models seat four. The CL coupes always come equipped with the very latest in Mercedes-Benz technology, and the CL is always the first model to receive new technological features. Consider that it introduced the refined Active Body Control fully active suspension system and Bi-Xenon HID lights. The CL-class is undoubtedly among the most popular luxury coupes in the world, as it even outsells rivals such as the Jaguar XK8 coupe and the Bentley Continental GT. That right there is of course a magnificent accomplishment and something that Benz wishes they could say about all of their models. Nevertheless, it is a great success and some of that success is on account of AMG. Mercedes-AMG is the tuning arm of the Mercedes-Benz car company. Mercedes-Benz acquired AMG in 1999. From that point, production climbed from 500 cars a year to 20,000 AMG vehicles in 2005. The Mercedes-Benz CL-Class has in the present generation the following models: the CL 500, the CL 550 and the CL 600, along with the C 216, the CL 63 AMG, and the CL 65 AMG. All of these models are representing the Benz brand very well and will hopefully continue to do so for a great deal of time.
