Mercedes-AMG GmbH CEO Ola Kallenius revealed the second generation Mercedes-Benz CLS63 AMG at the 2010 LA Auto Show and man, did the power outputs get even better for 2012. Trust me, you’ll want to watch the video just to hear the engine roar.
The all-new 2012 Mercedes CLS63 AMG will be powered by a new 5.5-liter biturbo V8 that produces more power and better fuel economy. With twin turbochargers, direct fuel injection and multi-spark ignition, the new AMG engine will produce 518 horsepower and 516 lb.-ft. of torque. The new Mercedes-Benz CLS63 AMG will also come with AMG’s award-winning MCT (for multi-clutch technology) transmission and innovative systems designed to reduce fuel consumption. For even more performance, the CLS63 AMG will be available with an optional Performance Package that includes increased power — 550 hp and 590 lb.-ft. of torque, a 43 horsepower improvement and 125 lb-ft of torque increase.
