  • This is the top 'banana' – the Mercedes-Benz CLS63 AMG with bhp and lb ft of torque. Mildly revised along with the rest of the CLS.

    Like all the other liter AMG cars, the CLS snorts and snarls when you Read our editors' reviews on the Mercedes Benz CLS63 AMG.

    This is the car that started the whole "four-door coupe" thing. Seemed like a strange idea at the time, but now the Mercedes-Benz CLS is the.

    It feels and sounds awe-inspiring — accelerative shock swiftly stuns your passengers into total quiet. Our tester had the performance package with neat things such as the flat-bottom sport steering wheel, limited slip, Airmatic sport suspension, larger front brake discs and the mph speed limiter up from mph. For example, entering "Factory Warranty, Bluetooth" will show all listings with both the phrase "Factory Warranty" and the word "Bluetooth". I was expecting the CLS to feel a bit awkward with this engine since it seems to be nearly as large as an S-class, but I was pleasantly surprised. Search Used Search New.

    Is this enough to take the four-door uber-coupe from good to truly great? I barely bothered to take in the new twin-louvre front grille, LED indicators and taillights, and inch-bigger titanium-finish 19s actually, to be honest, I did notice those , before ripping the door open and bolting from the car park into the Austrian countryside. And thank goodness we did. Very quickly we found ourselves heading up a steep, switchbacked hillside, all hairpin bends and loose, greasy surfaces, still damp at midday due to the overhanging trees.

    Narrow but completely lacking in any obstructive traffic. It was one of those moments when you just put your right foot all the way to the floor. Even some fairly nasty surface intrusions completely failed to upset it. With the chassis so surprisingly good, you might even overlook the engine. Everyone always complains it lacks the low-down shove of the old supercharged 55 engine, but as the new and even more excessively sonorous 'silencers' chuck its glorious big capacity soundtrack at the landscape, you'll find no complaints here about how it handled the hefty local gradients.

    It feels and sounds awe-inspiring — accelerative shock swiftly stuns your passengers into total quiet. Well, you would have thought so. Except that, in common with all AMGs, the whole shebang is let down by the gearbox. The key word here is Plus — denoting the new double-declutching downshift function, which adds a delicious throttle-blip to your paddleshift downchanges. But it still isn't good enough — failing to react with suitable speed, and sometimes ignoring downshift requests altogether.

    Which can be exciting when you're steaming headlong into a corner. You quickly learn to anticipate its foibles — it's either that or crash. But this weakness causes the CLS63 to come across as slightly disjointed, as the transmission's dyspraxia upsets the rear end — in sharp contrast to the strength of grip and turn-in at the front.

    Left-foot braking helps ease the transition into challenging corners, but this in turn heats up the stoppers, precipitating fade. And if I'm being picky, the ABS kicks in a touch too early when you're really desperate to shed some velocity.

    You're ahead of me here. But with its four-door coupe design way out at the head of a trend curve, the CLS generally is one of Mercedes' most convincing products.

    And if it's not exclusive or exciting enough out of the box, there's always the Perfomance Package. Available from the AMG Performance Studio, this adds a limited-slip diff, lightweight alloys, more aggressive suspension, and bigger front brakes. If you have to ask how much this costs The CLS63 is brilliant but flawed. On the right road at the right time, that engine and chassis coalition is capable of genuinely mind-blowing athleticism. But the gearbox remains — somehow — a disaster.
