In celebration of Mercedes Benz’s second generation CLS, Secret Entourage has decided to unveil the new CLS63 AMG by showing you some of the hottest CLS55 and CLS63 from around the country. The new 2011 CLS63 seem to somewhat keeps its lines from before but it has been significantly changed inside and out, without mentioning that it is now powered by the new 63 motor and Bi-Turbos only as Mercedes knows it.
Here is what we think to be the worlds best put together CLS cars by today’s hottest tuners.
The infamous ADV1 CLS55 driven by none other than Jordan Swerdloff himself as his daily driver, featuring suspension links, ADV1 Trackspec wheels, as well as carbon fiber goodies.
The Vossen Forged CLS55 featuring the new line of Vossen concave wheels as well as a clean new grille. Simple and classic
Black CLS55’s look menacing with the angry front fascia. Can never go wrong with black and polished lip wheels.
The famous Brabus Rocket, the world’s only CLS powered by the 65 Bi turbo V12 motor… Major power here!
Subtle mods can make the difference… Slight drop, yellow caliper and perfect lines…
Classic yet edgy, the D2 Life schools us on how wheels can make a car…
HMS Motorsports and our friend John represented well with one of the hottest CLS63’s in the country
Matte Black CLS only as SR Auto Group does it, if in doubt, ask Tony to about car tuning second to none…
And now without further due introducing the new 550HP Bi turbo 2011 CLS63. New 5.5 liter biturbo V8 comes with more power and 32 percent better fuel-economy than in previous 6.3 liter-powered CLS 63 AMG
The new 5.5 liter biturbo unit features a peak output of 410 kW (557 PS/550 bhp) and 800 Nm (590 lb-ft) of torque with the AMG Performance package. The standard engine configuration is rated at 386 kW (525 PS / 521 bhp) and 700 Nm (516 lb-ft) of torque.
Both units are mated to the AMG Speedshift MCT 7-speed sport transmission.
Fuel economy on the standard CLS 63 AMG now comes in at under 10 liter/100 km (a noteworthy achievement) – with a 9.9 liters per 100 km rating on the European cycle (NEDC).
That represents a remarkable 32 percent improvement in fuel-economy over the predecessor’s 6.3 liter unit with an output of 378 kW (514 PS/510 bhp) and 630 Nm (465 lb-ft) of torque. That new fuel-economy rating comes by means of a stop/start system, engine technology such as latest piezo injectors and an aluminum crankshaft, as well as the use of aluminum panels in the body.
The 0 to 100 km/h sprint is 4.4 seconds for the standard model and 4.3 seconds for the CLS 63 with the AMG Performance package. The standard variant has a top speed electronically limited to 250 km/h (155 mph).
The CLS 63 AMG comes with 3 drive modes: ‘S’ (Sport), ‘S+’ (Sport plus) and ‘M’ (Manual) and features AMG Ride Control suspension for a smoother, more exact ride quality with 3 modes of its own: Comfort, Sport and Sport Plus.
The 2012 CLS 63 AMG comes standard with high-performance LED headlights, AMG light-alloy wheels in a new triple-spoke design with 255/35R19 and 285/30R19 tires front and rear, respectively.
The AMG Performance package also offers a ceramic high-performance composite braking system, carbon fibre/black piano lacquer trims elements, door sills with illuminated AMG logo, carbon-fiber spoiler lip for the boot and red brake calipers, a seperate set of 19-inch light alloys in a double 5-spoke design and, aside from the aforementioned performance boost, the package includes a top speed limit bumped up to 300 km/h (186 mph).
Prices in Germany for the 2012 Mercedes-Benz CLS 63 AMG start at €115,846.50 including 19 percent VAT. The AMG Performance package rings in at €7735 (VAT included).
We hope you enjoyed our little tribute to one of the sexiest 4 doors to ever grace the streets. We still prefer the old model from this new one but we are confident that a bit of tweaking will get this model to look just right. As a bonus CLS55, our last car pictured below was the SECRET ENTOURAGE CLS55.
