Mercedes-Benz revealed its new 2011 Mercedes-Benz luxury coupes, the 2011 CL63 and CL65 AMG models, before the Paris Auto Show in November. Most noticeable in the exterior revision is the front bumper with LED, streamlined hood, larger headlamps, and a more pointier grille. The rear end also received a bit of revision, mainly to rear diffuser, with square exhaust pipe outlets.

The most important changes for the CL63 AMG are under the hood. It gets the more powerful new 5.5-liter V8 with twin-turbocharging and direct-injection technology, and it is mated to the AMG Speedshift 7-speed automatic. The new turbocharged engine pumps 536 hp at 5,500 rpm and 590 lb-ft of torque from 2,000 to 4,500 rpm. The new found horsepower helps the CL63 AMG accelerates from 0-60 mph in just 4.4 seconds. Too bad it is governed by an electronic speed limiter at 155 mph.

Some folks want more power, well, Mercedes-Benz is offering the AMG Performance package for the CL63. The performance package gives total output of 563 hp and 664 lb-ft of torque, which reduces its sprint time from 0-60 mph in 4.3 seconds with top speed limited to 186 mph. Mercedes claims that the new 5.5-liter turbocharged engine is much more efficient than its previous model with fuel consumption reduced to around 27 percent and CO2 emissions reduced to around 30 percent.

If the 2011 Mercedes-Benz CL63 is still too tamed for your taste, there is also the top-of-the-line Mercedes-Benz CL65 AMG. It comes with a bigger engine of a 6.0-liter twin-turbo V12 and a five-speed automatic transmission. The V12 engine puts out a staggering 621 of raw horsepower with 738 lb-ft of torque. This further reduces the 2011 Mercedes-Benz CL65’s sprint time from 0-60 in just 4.2 seconds.
