ASSOCIATE JAKE LINGEMAN: There are a few that exemplify the phrase speed.” This 2013 CL65 AMG is one of thme. Unfortunately that you can mash the gas and travel the future is actually more than exciting.

The CL65 Mercedes’ biggest nuclear a 621-hp, 738-lb-ft of torque which is probably more to moving the space shuttle a car. On startup it goes a relatively quiet high-pitched to a low burble. But even at low speeds you can this engine wants to There are slight backfire on downshifts, which are always a thing.

Like the BMW M5. by the time though second- and third you’re traveling so fast it’s time to hit the brakes. this would work in the open west, or in Germany, but it a tad much for the salt-eaten, stoplight-lined of the Midwest.

The throttle on the CL65 is When you’re 1 inch in already cruising at a good The traction control steps in you put the pedal down more halfway, making first an exercise in delayed gratification. second gear kicks in, you can the pedal a little more and some of what this car can do. The time that you can really use all of the is accelerating from 80 mph, nearly feels like a run.

Instead of a tach, this have a power reserve like the Rolls-Royce’s. Cruising at 50 mph Woodward Avenue had the revs planted at about 1,050

The suspension is pretty soft, in Sport mode, though I over a few bumps that to bang the 20-inch tires Steering is muted from the which is what people in this type of Mercedes.

the CL65 is still my favorite besides the SLS. The giant window is trick and makes checking easy. Visibility is all around. The matte paint, a option, seems like a when it’s literally 2 of the price. It’s an intimidating and people like to see it run. tried to goad me into the hammer a few times over the

The interior looks supremely with the Designo leather. The look always blows me Like the other AMGs, has the active seats that hug you cornering, which is a good if you’re quite a bit skinnier the seat. The massaging function is a gimmicky; it’s better sitting in traffic without massaged, but it won’t actually your achin’ back.

Price doesn’t even You’re looking at the Bentley GT; maybe a BMW 6-series Gran and possibly a Roller. But the two people I guessed about $150K for beast. They also loved the paint job, I told them about the But again, the person who buys won’t have to wash the crap off his car everyday; he certainly has to do that for him.

EDITOR WES I consider the weekend in the CL65 a — I didn’t get a speeding With 621 hp on tap it would have easy to get one. Simply it’s a beast.

The 6.0-liter V12’s 621 hp — a crazy of power — is actually to live with, thanks to the ESP and control systems, and they well. The thing is insane off the and while I wouldn’t exactly say body control gives it per se, it does help. This is as close to borrowing a Lear jet for the as I’ll get. For high-speed there’s nothing better.

The cabin is excellent; the seats enough to fit darn near It will embarrass base 911 owners with its speed, and you like an S-class sedan, is an interesting combo.

ROAD EDITOR JONATHAN WONG: able to say your car has a V12 engine is I must say. In the case of the CL-class AMG lineup upgrading the CL63, which packs a twin-turbocharged V8, to the 6.0-liter 12-cylinder-equipped will wreck your account for an additional $60,200.

else does the extra get you in the CL65 compared to the CL63. the additional 85-hp (621 536) and 148-lb-ft more (738 lb-ft versus 590 Interestingly, the CL63 is offered an optional $7,300 AMG performance that cuts the CL65’s to 58-hp and 74 lb-ft of torque. If you Mercedes’ claimed performance of the CL63 with performance and the CL65, you’ll see that will hit 60 mph in 4.3 seconds, and both a top speed of 186 mph.

On the transmission the CL65 uses a five-speed while the CL63 gets a multiclutch gearbox. The extra and obviously smaller engine the CL63 an EPA fuel economy of 15 mpg in the city and 22 mpg on the highway. As for the CL65, rated at 12 mpg city and 18 mpg highway is crappy enough for the car to be hit with a gas guzzler tax. Of course, considering a CL65 AMG won’t bat an eye at the couple of grand.

Enough numbers stuff. How this big boy drive? For something all this power, it can be remarkably around town. Just press the throttle and the car goes its business in a supremely smooth However, if you give the right a firmer push from a the traction control will cut in a hurry. It’s the same if you are to get on the power early around a with the 738 lb-ft of twist at just 2,300 rpm making control cut in again. Instead you to roll into the power and when you can experience the brute of the turbocharged monster under the One needs to be careful because the cruises around effortlessly at above expressway posted limits. It’s deceptive and have you saying “oh crap,” you spot law enforcement on the road and quickly look down at speedometer to see how fast you’re

The automatic gearbox performs upshifts, but a five-speed unit seem to be outdated for a vehicle punches in at above $200K. sure it’s being because it’s a more transmission to handle the V12’s torque.

As I learned in my track time a CL63 earlier this the CL-class is no apex hunter. On the it handles itself reasonably rounding corners with lean. This CL65 is 221 porkier than the CL63 and of the added mass is because of the paper weight set ahead of the wheels. No, it’s a cruiser light and lazy steering great ride comfort, and is quick in a straight line. makes the German muscle car which we have used times in the past, fit so well.

The with the optional Designo is unsurprisingly beautiful with inch of the cabin covered or constructed from high-quality

So is the CL65 AMG worth the extra over the CL63 AMG? To people, it very well be so they can say they own the king of the mountain. Like I said, cool to be able to say that car has a V12 in it. But after driving both of I would tell potential to save some money and get the AMG and then take the savings and put it a C63 AMG coupe if they want to a car that’s more engaging in the too. If ripping around roads and road courses your style, then I still say the CL63 is plenty of You just won’t be able to about having a V12.
