Mercedes-Benz CL-Class

The Mercedes-Benz CL-Class is a full-sized grand tourer produced by the German automaker Mercedes-Benz, which stands for Comfort Leicht in German, or Comfort Light in English.

Originally derived from the SL-Class roadster, it has since been based on the S-Class sedan. Known at first as the SEC and later S coupe, it was spun off into its own line and current name in 1998 (21 years ago). The CL continues to follow the same development cycle as the S, though riding on a slightly shorter wheelbase and offering smaller selection of engines, mostly tending towards the high-powered of the range. The main competitors of the CL-Class are the Bentley Continental GT and the Ferrari (95 pics) Scaglietti.

The present generation of the CL-Class, C216, is currently available in four models: CL500 4Matic (CL550 4Matic in America), CL600, CL63 AMG and CL65 AMG. The 2010 (9 years ago) price ranges from $110,775 to $207,170. The most powerful model of the CL, the CL65 AMG, is the most expensive Mercedes-branded vehicle (with the exception of the SLR and the S Class Pullman), slightly edging out its equivalent in the S-Class.


Mercedes-AMG GmbH, commonly known as AMG, is a subsidiary of the Mercedes-Benz car company specializing in high-performance luxury cars.

AMG models are typically the most expensive and highest-performance of each nameplate. However, there are exceptions, notably the V12 S600 which was pricier than the S55 AMG and S63 AMG, the latter two powered by V8 engines, although the V12 S65 AMG is the most expensive S-Class. AMG models typically have more agressive looks, higher performances, better handling and better stability than their regular Mercedes counterparts.

A recent development, the AMG Performance Studio located in Affalterbach, caters for bespoke modifications on all AMG and standard Mercedes-Benz models. The Performance Studio is also responsible for the upgrades which make an AMG into an AMG Black Series model. The Black Series treatment is only available on 2 door vehicles, and up to 2009 (10 years ago) has been applied to the SLK, CLK and SL. The modifications include weight reduction, bucketseats and modifications to the exterior. The SLK and SL will lose the ability to open the roof when the Black Series models are chosen. This reduces weight and increases stiffness of the body. On the SL the roofsystem also has to be removed in order to install the rearwing that pops up at braking and high speeds.
