The seventh AMG model to receive the new high-revving, normally-aspirated V8 engine, the CL63 should be a compelling machine, but ’63 Fatigue’ means it’s hard not to approach the range-topping CL with a certain reticence.
Can you really be blasé about a full four-seat coupe boasting 525bhp and 465lb ft of torque? You can, but not for long. Think about it. This is the most powerful version of AMG’s in-house designed, hand-built V8 yet seen, thanks to management system tweaks and the power-boosting benefits of a longer exhaust system, which enables the V8 to breathe more effectively. A few years ago this would have put the CL deep into supercar territory.
