Mercedes CL63 & CL65 AMG

German carmaker Mercedes developed the 2011 AMG CL models which will be available in the US showrooms this fall. Increased performance and torque, reduced fuel consumption and exhaust emissions are the perfect qualities the AMG 5.5-liter bi-turbo engine has. The result is an output of 563 horsepower and 664 lb. ft. of torque. The 2011 CL63 AMG develops a peak output of 536 horsepower and 590 lb. ft. of torque. These numbers show that no other engine in this power class is able to match the figures delivered by the new AMG bi-turbo motor. These improvements in efficiency and environmental protection have no negative effects on the performance of the car, on the contrary. The new CL63 AMG accelerates from 0 to 60 mph in 4.4 seconds and it can reach a top speed of 155 mph. with the AMG Performance package, the high-performance Coupe reaches the 60 mph mark in 4.3 seconds and reaches a top speed of 186 mph. All the engine functions are executed and controlled by a particularly efficient Bosch MED 17.7.3 control unit. This state-of-the-art engine computer not only controls the direct gasoline injection, charge pressure, camshaft adjustment and variable oil supply, but also communicates with all the other onboard control units. To reduce the load on the engine control unit, the eight individual ignition coils have an integrated electronic module known as an ignition amplifier at each cylinder. These ensure a strong ignition spark at all engine speeds and under all load conditions. For efficiency and to save space, this concept has catalytic converter housing on each side of the vehicle. The twin-pipe AMG sports exhaust system has a pipe cross-section of 2.76-inches from the manifolds to the rear silencers. The goal of the developers was to achieve an emotional experience when accelerating and rev-matching, but unobtrusiveness at constant speeds.
