Replaced by the S-Class Coupe in 2014, the Mercedes-Benz CL was the most luxurious two-door model in the brand’s range, and this one has been slightly revised with some aftermarket parts.
One of the most noticeable things of the entire build are the rims. Signed by Cor.Speed and installed by TR Exclusive, the 10-spoke alloys measure 9×21 inches up front and 10.5×21 inches at the rear. they have a gunmetal matte finish and are shod in 255/30 front and 295/25 rear tires.
Bringing the car closer to the tarmac is a lowering module from Cete Automotive, whereas the final upgrade is a sports exhaust system from TR Exclusive. According to Cor.Speed, the part makes the engine sound “more distinctive”, and has likely added a few extra horses to the luxury coupe’s V8. From 2006 to 2011, this used to be a 5.5-liter V8 with 383 HP (388 PS / 285 kW), whereas the facelifted model, which was launched in 2011, had a new 4.7-liter unit with 429 HP (435 PS).
Equipped with a seven-speed automatic transmission, the facelifted CL 500, which seems to be the model depicted here, did the 0 to 62 mph (0-100 km/h) sprint in a 4.8 seconds, and could hit a maximum speed of 155 mph (250 km/h). The 4Matic all-wheel drive model was equally quick and had an identical top speed.
The pinnacle of the series was the CL 65 AMG, with its 603 HP (612 PS / 450 kW) and 783 lb-ft (1,000 Nm) twin-turbo 6.0-liter V12. This variant was capable of sprinting from rest to 62 mph in 4.1 seconds, while the V-max was also limited to 155 mph.
