Following the extensive model updates for the CL-Class Coupé, the CL 55 AMG also has a totally new character. Beneath the bonnet of this AMG high-performance vehicle beats the heart of a top athlete – the V8 supercharged engine, with its 5.5-litre displacement, 493-hp output at 6100 rpm and 516 lb-ft torque between 2750 and 4000 rpm, familiar from the SL 55 AMG. In these prestigious and luxurious top models, the tremendous power ensures sports car-style dynamism: in the CL 55 AMG the sprint from 0 to 60 mph takes less than 4.8 seconds, and it takes just 16.3 seconds to reach the 200 km/h mark. The electronically governed top speed for each is 155 mph.

The CL 55 AMG demonstrates that high performance can also be environmentally compatible, firstly by complying with the EU4 exhaust gas limits, which are not due to come into force until 2005, and secondly by their low consumption levels of 13.2 litres per 100 kilometres (NEDC combined cycle).

AMG sports suspension with Active Body Control (ABC) as standard

The CL 55 AMG is fitted as standard with Active Body Control, which significantly reduces side tilt on bends as well as pitch and roll. The driver can also select between comfort-oriented or sporty characteristics at the touch of a button. Stiffer, AMG-specific tuning of the spring struts and the high-performance braking system with internally ventilated, perforated discs all round and eight-piston fixed callipers at the front axle do justice to the increased dynamic potential.

AMG bodystyling and 18-inch light-alloy wheels with mixed-size tyres

The new V8 KOMPRESSOR models can be distinguished from the other CL-Class models by the AMG bodystyling, which is fitted as standard. The front end is characterised by the new-design AMG front apron, with larger openings for the charge-air cooling. The side view features 18-inch AMG light-alloy wheels in the new twin-spoke design with mixed-size tyres, AMG side skirts and the V8 KOMPRESSOR lettering on the front wings. The AMG sports exhaust with two chromed twin tailpipes and the distinctive AMG rear apron – with a particularly sporty diffusor on the CL 55 AMG – lend a dynamic touch at the rear.

Full complement of nappa leather appointments in a choice of three colours

The appointments in the S 55 AMG and CL 55 AMG certainly live up to the high technical standards of the vehicles. The AMG instrument cluster with its 320-km/h gauge, an AMG ergonomic sports steering wheel with gearshift buttons and door sill panels with the AMG logo emphasise the AMG style. Luxurious flair is also added by the extensive fine wood trim and the nappa leather appointments, available in three colours. The CL 55 AMG has AMG sports seats in the front, offering optimum lateral support. These ensure that the degree of lateral support provided adjusts automatically when cornering at speed. The seats in the CL 55 have an AMG-specific design and perforated upholstery, with AMG badges incorporated in the backrests.
