Secret Entourage’s Mercedes has been delivered: The 2006 Mercedes Benz CLS55 AMG.
We chose the CLS55 because power, styling and luxury combine effortlessly with this AMG. We wanted to go with the S63 first but decided on the CLS55 based on its much younger appearance and fun factor. Here is a little background about the CLS55 and photo shoot of our two amazing super cars next to each other.
We chose the CLS55 AMG over the CLS63 because it was available only one year and was discontinued in favor of the more docile 63 in 2007 to present. The 2006 CLS55 was the one and only to feature the new styling of the CLS along with the brute force of the Supercharged V8 5.4L motor featured in all the 55 cars to date. The car produces a brutal 495HP and close to 560lbs ft TRQ which translates to a full size sedan hitting 0-60 in 4 seconds or less. All this power combined with a 5 speed automatic transmission with manual override which Mercedes claims to be necessary to contain the amount of torque.
Known as the world’s first 4 door coupe, the Mercedes CLS was noted as rich, young, fresh and simply beautiful by Automobile Magazine which ranked it number 6 on sexiest automobiles ever made back in 2007. The roof line is thin and creates a very sexy sports shape that keeps the car apart from other sedans. The downfall to such a clean roof is the space and headroom in the rear is quite limited, especially if you are tall.
The interior is stunning in our CLS55, we have black leather on gloss burl wood and a stunning black suede headliner with suede inserts on the seats as well. We selected to get all possible options on our CLS55, we even got the dynamic seats feature which makes the seats move according to the car’s g-force around corners and ensures you remain well bolstered in them. We really think this option along with Keyless Go are must haves if you opt to get a CLS yourself.
There you have it, so we hope you will stay with us and keep following our progress as we start modifying our CLS55 AMG and potentially add an F430 Spyder to our stable next spring. Enjoy our gallery.
