The entirely 429 hp. V8 biturbo engine of the CL550 and the 536 hp. AMG V8 biturbo of the CL63 AMG open a new of performance in the luxury coupé Performance and fuel economy thanks to the newly-developed BlueDIRECT with third-generation spray-guided injection as well as energy-efficient of alternator, fuel pump, compressor and power-assisted steering In addition, the Mercedes- Benz equipped the CL with state-of-the-art technology and hand-finished components to retain its position as the epitome of in its class. These two new V8 models, as as the V12-powered CL600 and CL65 AMG go in the U.S. in November 2010.

the new generation of the CL, the Stuttgart-based automaker on fuel consumption and exhaust gas in the exclusive high-end segment. to Dr. Dieter Zetsche, Chairman of the of Management of Daimler AG: The CL is the ideal for our brand. To a special degree it the things that go to make a fascination, perfection and responsibility. And the new generation we raise the ante in the area of efficiency. But in the realms of safety, comfort and performance, the CL shows: ahead is where is.

A combination of cutting-edge camera and assistance systems such as the Active Lane Keeping and the Active Blind Spot make the CL a thinking partner of the The modified Active Body (ABC) with crosswind system and the Direct-Steer system contribute to enhancing safety and enjoyment.

The 2011 CL63 AMG cutting-edge technology from The CL63 AMG features the new 5.5-liter V8 engine with a peak of 536 hp and 590 lb-ft of torque. With the AMG Performance Package, the performance to 563 hp and 664 lb-ft. The award-winning AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT sports transmission provides a reduction in fuel consumption and while simultaneously increasing power and torque. With fuel economy, the new CL63 AMG is than 25 percent more than the previous model a naturally aspirated V8. The exclusive CL65 AMG now has even more with 621 hp and 738 lb-ft.

The CL63 AMG the start of a new chapter in the AMG Performance drive strategy: Mercedes-AMG is this impressive story and is its promise to continuously reduce the fuel consumption and emissions of new with the new engine/transmission combination and technology — while reaching new heights with the AMG brand value of performance.

to Ola Källenius, head of Mercedes-AMG We are heading into a new era with the S63 AMG and AMG: for the first time we combined spray-guided direct injection with biturbocharging and the system. Together with the AMG MCT 7-speed sports transmission, we reduced both fuel and emissions significantly — at the same time increasing and torque.

Together with the AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 7-speed sports the new AMG 5.5-liter V8 biturbo engine play a significant role in the model strategy over the year. The new engine / transmission marks a further milestone in the history of Mercedes-AMG, which back in 1967.

New V8 biturbo engine with technology

With its 4,663 centimeters of displacement the new V8 biturbo in the 2011 CL550 4MATIC BlueDIRECT technology and delivers power. The eight-cylinder engine 429 hp so that despite 0.8 liters displacement, it is still around 12 more powerful than its At the same time, torque was to 516 lb-ft — an increase of 32 The CL550 4MATIC requires a 4.8 seconds to accelerate from a to 60 mph. In summary, the 2011 4MATIC is significantly more torquey and fuel efficient its predecessor.

The BlueDIRECT technology of the V8 includes an impressive combination of new such as third generation direct gasoline injection piezo injectors and multi-spark with up to four ignition within a millisecond.

The CL600, its 510hp 12-cylinder biturbo accelerates the luxury coupe a standstill to 60 mph in an impressive 4.5 seconds.

The new AMG V8 designated internally as the M 157, takes full advantage of innovative new technologies. The new AMG 5.5-liter marks the debut of direct injection with spray-guided and piezo injectors in an AMG. highlights include standard Efficiency stop/start function. The AMG V8 biturbo engine develops a output of 536 hp and maximum torque of 590 In conjunction with the optional AMG Package these figures are to 563 hp and 664 lb-ft.

The CL63 AMG delivers sports car-level performance. from 0-60 mph takes 4.4 seconds, and has an electronically limited top of 155. With the optional AMG Package, 0-60 takes 4.3 seconds and top speed increases to an limited 186 mph.

The V12-powered AMG produces 621 hp and 738 lb-ft of torque, and a 0-60 mph time of 4.3 seconds.

combining maximum driving with low fuel consumption

The new in the CL550 4MATIC is mated to a automatic transmission which has significant revision, while V12 retain the proven five-speed transmission due to their extremely torque at low engine speeds. The lever on the steering column the driver to select P, N, R and D by nudging the The operating commands are transferred by wire.

In addition, a switch on the console allows the driver to between the driving modes (S) and Economy (E), which the transmission characteristics.

* Economy: the transmission changes gears at low in this mode the CL starts-off in gear.

* Sport: the automatic transmission the most of the engines’ speed when changing gears. At the time the accelerator characteristics are so that the engine responds spontaneously to the driver’s pressure on the

Selection of the transmission mode is of the spring/damper setting of the suspension so the driver has more control the overall handling of the luxury

More efficiency: the new seven-speed transmission

The seven-speed automatic was improved in detail by the Mercedes The aim was to further reduce converter in the connection with the engine and optimize efficiency. In addition, the increased torque of the V8 biturbo in the CL550 4MATIC raised new on the absorption of cyclic irregularities and in the transmission. The Mercedes-Benz developers met challenge in the new transmission with a new vibration damper. It is designed as a turbo-damper and additionally fitted a centrifugal pendulum which the mass center of gravity as a of engine speed and enables vehicle operation even at engine speeds. Moreover, the damping already makes a reduction in the slip of the torque lockup clutch at low loads. The in ECO mode the engine speed be reduced, contributing greatly to cut consumption. Plus, it ensures an quicker response to accelerator

A new hydraulic circuit and optimized converter characteristics also to improve efficiency and performance. A consumption-cutting measure is a new lower-viscosity transmission fluid (ATF), has a longer life yet the same performance. As a result, the CL550 only needs a transmission change every 78,000

The optimized electrohydraulic control of the transmission and new reducedfriction materials in parts of the transmission in combination optimized software provide shifting comfort.

Power and stop/start function

Intelligent for maximum driving pleasure and low consumption

Seven gears, driving modes and a rev-matching the power transmission of the CL63 AMG great emotional appeal and driving pleasure. At the same the AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 7-speed sports provides a considerable improvement in economy — and specifically in with the new Controlled Efficiency mode with stop/start and generator management.

The AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT sports transmission is an innovative transfer system that its debut in the high-performance SL63 AMG in 2008, and has also been in the E63 AMG summer 2009. It combines the direct and agile feedback of a transmission with the total of an automatic. Featuring seven three driving modes and a function, the 7-speed sports offers superb versatility. MCT for Multi-Clutch Technology and indicates only clutch elements are to perform gearshifts.

A compact wet clutch, which runs in an oil replaces the conventional torque Thanks to its low rotational inertia, the responds instantaneously and dynamically the losses typical of a torque transmission — thereby to save fuel. The AMG sports also impresses with its low of just 176 lbs, which has made possible through the use of magnesium for the transmission housing. are effectively eliminated by a new, torsion damper, with benefits in perceived passenger

Consumption-optimized Controlled Efficiency (C) mode

During its development and to the AMG 5.5-liter V8 biturbo engine, the AMG paid special attention to the new Efficiency (C) driving mode. The was on delivering minimum engine coupled with a reduced of gearshifts in all driving situations. moving-off in C, the MCT transmission always second gear and shifts early to the next higher if the driving style permits. At 37 mph for sixth gear will be engaged — not only fuel consumption but also levels. Thanks to its powerful, available torque even at low speeds, the AMG V8 biturbo unit is ideal for this style of Controlled Efficiency also convenient gearshifts and a soft response set-up for outstandingly power transfer.

Controlled stop/start function as a new feature

The Efficiency stop/start function is being used for the first in an AMG model. This system is equipment on the CL63 AMG and permanently in the fuel economy driving C. Once the driver comes to a e.g. at a red traffic light, the is automatically switched off. the brake pedal is released or the is depressed, the engine is immediately and the car is able to move off quickly. technology guarantees a comfortable and starting procedure: a crankshaft recognizes the direction of rotation and the resting position of all eight For an automatic engine start, the with the most favorable position receives an injection of into its combustion chamber. The piezo-electric injectors greatly this process, as they especially fast starts

The engine management ensures the engine is only switched off if preconditions are met. The starter must have sufficient for example, and the engine must be at the operating temperature for efficient control. The same applies to the temperature selected by the driver: if has not yet been reached, the engine is not off when the car comes to a stop. The network management system sure that active telephone or video functions are not by the stop/start function.

A green ECO in the AMG main menu shows the that the Controlled Efficiency function is active. Should one of the criteria prevent activation of the this is shown in the central by the message Stop/start inactive and a ECO symbol. In the two more performance-oriented modes S (Sport) and M (Manual), the function is always deactivated. If the driver can also switch it off in C mode.

The eight-cylinder biturbo also features the generator system familiar from the E63 whenever the engine is on the overrun or braking, kinetic energy is to charge the battery rather being wasted as heat in the way. In all other operating a combination of onboard network and management enables the generator to be at a low voltage. This reduces the on the engine and increases fuel

Drive modes S and M for even driving pleasure and performance

The and transmission are even more in the S (Sport) mode. Accelerator movements trigger a more traction response, making the more spontaneous. The engine is allowed to reach a higher in each gear, while the are around 25 percent faster in C. In the manual shift mode M, at full throttle take 100 milliseconds, a reduction of 50 percent to C. In S and M modes, the engine management partially suppresses the cylinders: ignition and injection under load leads to even gearshifts than before.

spontaneous multiple downshifts are strength of the AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 7-speed transmission. For instance, kickdown gearshifts straight from down to fourth gear, or fifth to second. In the S and M driving the automatic rev-matching function is Every manual or automatic is accompanied by precisely metered revs — incrementally S to M. This not only adds to the emotional experience, but the load-free minimizes load-change reactions, is particularly helpful when into bends — and enhances safety in slippery

No automatic downshifts in manual M

In manual M mode the driver benefits from the high of the V8 biturbo engine, as there is no downshift under full and kickdown. The transmission remains in the selected gear and does not an automatic upshift in manual even when the rev limit is In M mode the AMG instrument cluster the current gear and alerts the to upshift by means of a red up symbol before the needle reaches the red When approaching the lower rev e.g. when braking, is an automatic downshift to the next gear.

The gears can be shifted using the paddles — no matter the mode. The electronic key for selection of the driving models is located to the of the COMAND controller. The powerful transmission control unit its integrated 80 MHz processor provides downshifts — for example approaching traffic lights or if the requires fast acceleration overtaking.

A unique combination of systems

With state-of-the-art and protection systems the 2011 affirms its status as an automotive and technology platform. The attentive turn the car into an intelligent which is able to see, respond instinctively to danger and act on its own in order to avoid accidents or their severity. The trailblazing assistance systems in the 2011 are based on cutting-edge radar, and sensor technology. Celebrating its on the 2011 CL-Class, the optional Lane Keeping Assist on V12 models) monitors lane and if the vehicle threatens to cross a line the system actuates an motor in the steering wheel, it to vibrate briefly — the driver a discreet but effective to countersteer immediately. If the coupe crosses a solid line, the intervenes by gently braking the of the opposite side of the car, the driver to stay in the lane. Lane Keeping Assist through the existing Electronic Program ESP®.

Active Assist evaluates information by a camera mounted on the inside of the which identifies the contrast the road surface and the lane In addition, the radar system the side of the roadway for crash and other roadway edge This Mercedes assistance also evaluates the driver’s and can reliably determine whether the car is from the lane intentionally or Consequently, there is no warning if the accelerates hard just overtaking, when merging a highway, braking hard or into a curve.

Targeted actuation: Active Blind Assist

Another component of the Driver Assistance Package on V12 models) is Active Blind Assist, a system that a multi-stage warning concept. If it that a change of lane be too dangerous, it warns the driver by a red triangle in the glass of the exterior Close-range radar sensors the area immediately to the side and to the of the car. If the driver disregards warning and, for example, the turn indicator, an audible also sounds. If the driver to ignore the warnings and comes close to a vehicle in the neighboring corrective braking intervention via is applied to the wheels of the opposite of the vehicle. This causes a yaw about the car’s vertical due to the unequal distribution of braking If, despite this course an accident cannot be avoided the Blind Spot Assist reduces the consequences of a collision.

to see and be seen better

Adaptive Assist is another standard on the 2011 CL-Class. This system can recognize oncoming or vehicles ahead with lights on, and then controls the to ensure the best possible range without dazzling drivers. In addition, Mercedes-Benz the Night View Assist system, featuring a special camera for pedestrian detection: as as the system detects pedestrians on the ahead, they are highlighted in the display in order to better the driver’s attention.

An electronic zone: the PRE-SAFE® Brake

offers another radar-based as a component of the optional Driver Package (standard on V12 models) PRE-SAFE® Brake. If the driver is and fails to recognize the imminent of a rear-end collision, this can intervene and brake the vehicle If the driver fails to react after automatic, partial action, this latest of the PRE-SAFE® Brake activates braking pressure around 0.6 before what is now an unavoidable This emergency braking can significantly mitigate the severity of the The PRE-SAFE® Brake thus as a kind of electronic crumple

Warns driver of drowsiness: ASSIST

Drowsiness is one of the most causes of accidents. According to the Sleep Foundation, fifty-four of motorists have driven drowsy at least once in the year, and 28 percent do so at least per month. This is why Mercedes have developed the ATTENTION system which forms of the standard equipment of the 2011 The system continuously evaluates than 70 different parameters in to identify driver drowsiness and a warning before the dangerous phase begins. Observing the steering behavior has proved to be an strong indicator: several of practical research by Mercedes-Benz has that drowsy drivers minor steering errors they often correct rapidly in a characteristic way. steering behavior is recognized by a steering angle sensor. the driver’s eyes cannot provide conclusive evidence of since many drivers can microsleep with their open.

Active Body reduces the effect of a crosswind

The CL also meets the highest in terms of driving dynamics and thanks to Direct-Steer, with a ratio that varies the steering angle, and modified Body Control (ABC) crosswind stabilization (standard for the and AMG models). This latest in active suspension development the wheel load distribution via the ABC struts within milliseconds, on crosswind direction and intensity, to the that it can largely compensate the of the crosswind.

The Active Body was debuted by Mercedes-Benz in an earlier of the CL coupe, the C215 model in 1999. ABC is unique worldwide as it not regulates roll, but pitching and movements as well, creating a harmony of comfort and handling Since the introduction of this system, engineers in Sindelfingen continuously improved on it, so that years later it still the peak of automotive engineering. In to crosswind stabilization, the latest the active suspension features a new hydraulic pump that part of the burden off the engine, towards reducing fuel

Additional safety and agility at the limits is provided by the standard Vectoring Brake — one-sided braking intervention at the rear wheel when This enables the luxury to turn into a bend precise control with greater agility.

Interior: selected materials and first-class

Mercedes-Benz developers and designers the CL interior paying careful to detail. A total of four kinds of trim open up the for perfectly matched material and concepts according to personal apart from dark burl walnut, there is black ash wood. Twelve models additionally offer poplar and both AMG models Carbon Fiber trim Important to note — with the corporate philosophy of at Mercedes-Benz, the CL uses only wood from renewable sources. Most of the wood are hand-made and matched individually for and grain by experienced craftsmen.

The of the CL are of the most exquisite quality, with low pretensioning they supple and comfortable from the first glance. There is a of Premium leathers on the V8 CL550 and CL63 AMG. The V12 CL600 and AMG feature Exclusive leather.

The multifunction steering wheel of the CL has been modified by the Mercedes-Benz the rim and airbag module are lined soft premium leather as The new, flatter airbag also lends a sporty to the multifunction steering wheel in leather sewn with double stitching.

Apart this, Mercedes-Benz makes use of light as a styling element in the interior. Standard ambient offers a choice between lighting moods: solar neutral (white) and polar

AMG: Dream car with V12 performance

The powerful AMG V12 engine and appointments of the CL65 AMG serve to the emotions of automotive enthusiasts. engine specialists and car enthusiasts, a engine has always represented the glory of the engine builders’ A very special example of luxurious engine series is the AMG V12 biturbo engine, as used in the AMG. Just one glimpse of the specifications is enough to reveal with a displacement of 5980 centimeters, the AMG V12 generates 621 hp at 4800 The maximum torque of 738 lb-ft. has electronically limited — a possible 885 lb-ft — to allowances for the powertrain, and remains between 2300 and 4300

The performance is evidence of the exceptional the AMG V12 models accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 4.3 seconds, and are capable of hitting a top of 186 mph (electronically limited).

AMG has made a of additional detailed enhancements to the AMG V12 biturbo engine for the new model The engine experts at AMG achieved the in output from 604 hp to 621 hp thanks to new gas turbochargers. The inlet diameter of the housing and also the exhaust gas have been enlarged, and the increase in air throughput, together the new engine electronics, has resulted in an of 17 hp. The maximum charge-air pressure is 22

Despite the increase in output, it has been possible to reduce consumption and exhaust emissions. The in fuel consumption is achieved to the new engine electronics and generator The kinetic energy generated driving and also when is used to charge the battery, and not left to generate heat as otherwise be the case. In all other areas, management of both the electrical system and generator the generator to be maintained at a low voltage

New piston rings, a modified oil and use of a superior coating on the catalytic also contribute towards raw exhaust emissions. As a result, the AMG immediately fulfill all of the requirements of the US (LEV II standard, on-board II and lambda sensor diagnostics).

Since its debut in 2003, the AMG V12 biturbo engine has ranked as one of the powerful series production ever built. The exciting emitted by the two chrome twin of the AMG sports exhaust system according to the driving style and the repertoire ranges from a refined tone, through to the AMG-typical twelve-cylinder sound, all of adds to the intensity of the high-performance experience.

Tradition: an line of ancestors

The 2011 continues the great tradition of coupes, which reaches to the legendary supercharged cars of the and ’30s. Since the 1950s, in the three-pointed star has produced an series of exclusive two-door which combine sophisticated with trailblazing technology every model an automotive The W188 model series 300 S which entered series in 1952 marked the beginning. A report called it the measure of it is possible to achieve in automotive

This statement has remained for all subsequent models, right to the current generation, because the coupes from Mercedes-Benz timeless design, the highest of comfort and trailblazing innovations in technology. The 1961 220 SE Coupé was the series-production Mercedes-Benz to be equipped disc brakes. In 1995 the Stability Program ESP® its world premiere in the S600 and in 1999 the Active Body suspension system was introduced for the time in the CLClass. PRE-SAFE® was another technological innovation made its debut in a large coupé. Now the 2011 CL-Class Active Lane Keeping and Active Blind Spot which will help accidents or reduce their

cars and technical trendsetters

* history of manufacturing premium cars

* Exclusive trendsetter in development

The large coupes Mercedes-Benz combine utmost and ambitious design with high-end technology. Building automobiles with a performance to meet the most exacting was a carefully and intensely cultivated at Mercedes-Benz at the beginning of the 20th For example, very rare versions of Mercedes supercharged were produced in the 1920s and

The luxury coupes were mere variants of the sedans, but a individual line within the ranges. They also pioneering innovations in automotive The 1961 220 SEb Coupé, for instance, was the Mercedes production model to disc brakes. The Electronic Program ESP® had its world in the S600 Coupé in 1995; the Body Control suspension in 1999 in the CL. In 2006 the PRE-SAFE® another technical innovation, in a large Mercedes coupe. But from all such technical Mercedes coupes primarily emotions. Their dramatic makes a bold statement. In Mercedes coupes have been dream cars of the kind — every one of a classic.

1952: back in the class with the 300 S Coupé

returned to the tradition of the pre-war in October 1951, presenting the 300 S the luxury-class coupé of the W 188 series, at the Motor Show. General prevailed and the trade press was speaking of a world-class car. But the public also was surprised no one expected that a German manufacturer, virtually starting nothing, could manage the from the post-war economy of to the smooth production of exclusive vehicles.

The 300 S Coupé that into production in 1952 viewers with the curves of its and its long hood. These elements represented traditional and in case especially finely lines, as one contemporary commented. The coupé with its six-cylinder engine developed 150 hp, enabling a top of 109 mph. Able to cover distances in the shortest time the least possible strain on and nerves was the message sent out to the clientele, which included the film stars Gary and Errol Flynn.

In 1955 Mercedes-Benz already the redesigned 300 Sc Coupé. Direct injection instead of a carburetor engine output climb to 175 hp. In from the 300 Sedan the new coupé the single-joint swing axle, further enhanced ride The fortunate combination of peak and handling safety with elegance and quality was regarded by in those days as the measure of it is possible to achieve in automotive This judgment holds to this day.

Between and 1958 only 314 units of the of the ultra-exclusive W 188 model series built. The small volume can be to the still relatively small at that time. But the few post-war still preserved today are of the most sought-after collector’s and trade in the highest categories at

1956: the Ponton Coupé

Ambitious design, trailblazing and pleasurable motoring also to form a unified whole in the 220 S of the W 180 model series introduced in Like the 220 S Cabriolet this car was based on the 220 S Sedan. All three variants feature the characteristic integrated-design body with sides and no mounted fenders or boards. Quickly they got the Ponton-Mercedes, a standing expression in the of the automobile even today. bumpers and foglamps lent the of this coupé its character.

The last variants had 120 hp.

Mercedes-Benz manufactured a total of units of the Ponton coupes 220 S and 220 SE. too are much sought-after collectors’ today.

1961: styling and milestone

At the ceremonial opening of the at the Untertürkheim plant on February 24, Mercedes-Benz presented the 220 SEb Coupé. Its and styling took their cue the 220 SEb Tailfin Sedan, so it was also to the 111 series. On the full-length version of the 111 frame-floor unit a fully four-seater was created. Engine, and the safety body principle borrowed from the Sedan. The major difference was at the same a special technical feature: the 220 SEb was the first Mercedes-Benz production car to disc brakes on the front It also had a padded steering 3-point seat belts and a new of wedge-pin door lock prevented the doors from open in a collision.
