2012 Mercedes Benz CLS63 AMG
November 16, 2010Posted by on
So, Benz is rolling out its AMG version of the brand-new CLS-class, with its new 5.5L twin-turbocharged V8. You know the deal, lots of power, fancier suspension, racier exterior. A car not nessicarly for drivers, more for holagans who love tail-out antics.
What bugs me about Benz and their AMG division is that to me all the AMGs end up being basically the same car after a while. An example, the 5.5L TT AMG V8. It’s in the CL63 AMG, the SL63 AMG, and now the CLS63 AMG. And then it’ll inevitably end up in the E63 AMG. And then the S63 AMG. And then the SLK63 AMG. And then the C63 AMG. See what I mean? All AMG do now days is stick the same engine in all of the cars in the Benz line, dictate power-levels based on price, throw on some stiffer suspension, and some AMG badges. And then call it a day. Am I the only one who finds this is a bit boring?
Thank god for the SLS is all I have to say…
