Really now, think about it, what better way to celebrate the existence of automobiles in our lives than to feast your eyes on the beauty of the CL-Class Coupe. The very expressive and aesthetic CL-Class Coupe sees Mercedes-Benz zoom into its 125th year of corporate history, which only goes on to show the kind of respect and power the German car manufacturers can easily demand for themselves. With the CL Class Coupe, it’s a first of sorts for Mercedes-Benz; the company now enters a new market segment and for the first time ever offers a coupe that is both compact and classic. If you are interested in gaining a closer look at the Mercedes-Benz CL Class Coup, all you need to do is read on for the same.
Design & Style
One look at the CL-Class Coupe and you will realize that you have just seen beauty beyond description. However, an attempt at a frail grasp of the big picture will be made to help showcase best the design and style of the CL-Class Coupe. The coupe’s front fascia draws its inspiration from the soon to be launched sedan. However, the coupe’s biggest and most noticeable changes take place at the back of the A-pillar. Broad doors and a painstakingly crafted roofline lead to what can be best described as an elegant looking ‘beast’. What takes you by surprise with the car is the bend at the very end of the rear window, which is something that Mercedes-Benz as a car manufacturing company has never offered to its esteemed customers. The insides of the car are a world apart from its exteriors. The interiors are blessed with the finest materials that almost seem exclusive to the car. What adds to the glamour of the machine is its stylish dashboard, delicate wood trim at the centre console and a state-of-the-art steering wheel, not to forget mentioning the soft leather upholstery. The car also comes with a modern music system and a stereo audio, and the best part about it is that the audio controls all appear on the steering wheel. The good looking machine scores on storage too, offering a lot more of luggage space than its predecessor.
The Mercedes-Benz CL-Class comes in four variants, each more astonishing than the other. It all begins with the CL-500 that is powered by a 5.5L V8 engine which is capable of generating power of 388 PS @ 6000 rpm and a maximum torque of 530 Nm @ 2800 rpm. The CL-600 comes with a 5.5L V12 engine and dishes out power of around 517 PS @ 5000 rpm and torque of 830 Nm @ 1900 rpm. The engines of the other two variants, the CL 63 AMG and the CL 65 AMG pack quite a punch with a power of 525 PS @ 6800 and 612 PS @ 4800 rpm, respectively.
