As well-appointed and lushly furnished as any cockpit on the planet. The uncluttered sweep of the dash panel and three-spoke wheel are accented by the airy elegance of poplar wood trim. With an as-tested price of $116,525, our test CL550 is the budget-conscious edition in the CL line. 2007 Mercedes-Benz CL-Class CL600 Coupe Exterior 2007 Mercedes-Benz CL-Class CL600 Coupe Exterior These 19-inch wheels are part of a $5,600 AMG sport package that also includes unique body trim but no engine modifications. Pure performance. After the bulging nose and deeply sculpted sides, the CL's conventional tail looks a bit staid. The CL63's normally aspirated V8 makes 514 hp at 6,800 rpm and 465 lb-ft of torque at 5,200 rpm. A new alloy variable intake manifold with two integral throttle flaps ensures optimal cylinder charging at any rpm. Even riding on the optional 19-inch wheels, the CL550 provides a cushy ride. Aerodynamic side skirts, prominent cooling ducts, a sporty air diffuser, 16-spoke alloys, huge brakes, fat rubber and oversized quad tailpipes are just a few of the CL63 AMG's distinctly different appearance cues. The Bentley's long nose, radical fastback and massive wheels make it more dramatic-looking. The Mercedes CL600 is handsome, though slightly generic — those combination headlight-signal buckets could be off a Camry. The 40th anniversary CL65 goes for extreme style with a gorgeous two-tone interior. 2007 Mercedes-Benz CL-Class CL600 Coupe Exterior Traditional Mercedes coupe design cues are seen in the slight taper in the C-pillar, absence of a B-pillar, fully retractable side windows and curving expanse of the rear glass. From behind you get a much better appreciation for all the new curves this new CL has, compared to the previous model. The latest iteration of the turbo V12 has been upgraded to deliver 604 hp and 734 lb-ft of torque. The 12-cylinder CL can be identified by its 18-inch five-spoke alloys (not pictured), chrome inserts on the lower air intake, chrome foglamp surrounds and V12 emblems. The CL is based on the platform of the S-Class sedan, so this is not exactly a small car. The Bentley Continental GT looks fantastic from any angle. But there's too much Solara in the CL600. Both cars are true pillarless hardtops. No surprise here as the CL550 uses the same interior design as the S550 sedan. Materials are top quality and the iDrive-like controller is relatively useful. Looking wider and more muscular than the previous CL500, the 2007 CL550 makes more of a statement up front. The taller hood is required to meet European pedestrian safety standards. The Carbon edition shows you its rear diffuser as it leaves you behind. Under that plastic cover is the CL600's 5.5-liter twin-turbo V12. Tuned for low-end torque, it could tow a coal train through West Virginia and over the Appalachian mountains. The limited-edition 40th anniversary CL65 AMG is everything the Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren is not.
