2012 Mercedes-Benz CLS63 AMG Review

Beautiful design, superior performance and innovation performance: the new Mercedes-Benz CLS63 AMG is all about.

Top of the range version of the four-door coupe is equipped with the new AMG V8 bi-turbo, with a maximum power of up to 557 hp and 800 Nm of torque and the AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 7 - speed sports transmission. Add to this the fuel consumption of cars and 28.5 mpg, an improvement of 32 percent over the previous model (all figures are provisional).


The combination of RIDE CONTROL AMG sports suspension with a front axle electronic damping and the new, power steering electro newly developed AMG sport settings, and is also the optional AMG high-performance ceramic composite brake synonymous maximum driving dynamics. Visually, the Mercedes-Benz CLS63 AMG is distinguished by its athletic stance and exterior and interior. model's standard equipment also includes high performance LED lights.

"The new CLS63 AMG is the continued success of previous models, CLS55 AMG and CLS63 AMG, which have delighted our customers around the world since 2004," said Ola Källenius, head of Mercedes-AMG GmbH. "The CLS63 AMG is a performance car unique high - it sets new standards in design, performance and efficiency."


As the S63 AMG and CL63 AMG, the driver of the delivery of Mercedes-Benz CLS63 AMG an eight-cylinder power plant, known internally as M 157: The engine of the new AMG 5.5-liter V8 bi-turbo a combination of high innovative high technology components, which in addition to fuel injection guided by a direct jet injectors with piezo-electric, also includes an aluminum housing full, four-valve technology with adjustable shaft cams, cooling air / water management generator and stop / start system. With a displacement of 5461 cc, developing the eight-cylinder engine a maximum power of 525 hp and 700 Nm of torque Under the AMG Performance package, these numbers increase to 557 hp and 800 Nm of two variants AMG Mercedes-Benz CLS63 get exceptional performance: acceleration from 0 to 62 mph takes 4.4 and 4.3 seconds respectively and a maximum speed of 155 km / h (electronically limited).

The main difference between the two power units is to increase the air pressure load of 1.0 to 1.3 bar. In addition, the CLS63 AMG with AMG performance package has a special engine, the carbon fiber casing of high quality.

Quantum Leap: fuel consumption reduced by 32 percent

Despite a substantial increase in performance over the previous model, which had a naturally aspirated 6.3-liter AMG V8 produces 514 hp and 630 Nm of torque, the new Mercedes-Benz CLS63 AMG about 32 percent cheaper - which is a leap forward.


NEDC consumption of 28.5 mpg equivalent to the CO2 output 232 g / km. With these figures, the new AMG V8 Coupé not only counterproductive to all of its direct competitors in a four-door coupe segment small but sophisticated, high performance, but also more fuel than cars much lower power. Both options are identical to the performance of fuel consumption and CO2 figures.

Exclusive: AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 7-speed sports transmission

A significant contribution to achieving unprecedented consumption readings are done AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 7-speed sports, a part used exclusively for Mercedes-AMG. Unlike conventional automatic transmission, torque converter transmission MCT swept away, but uses a compact, wet start-up clutch. Even the standard equipment, stop / start function: it is always active in the transmission Controlled Efficiency ("C"), the way and eight-cylinder engine turns off when the car stops. At the same time, the mode "C" is the answer "soft" accelerator-up and a practical replacement of premature departure usually occurs on the second gear. Indicator green "ECO" AMG instrument cluster displays the driver that the / start / stop function is active.

The engine and transmission appears to be more flexible in the "S" (Sport), "S +" (Sport plus) and "M" (Manual) modes, in addition, the function start / stop is off. In "S" and "M" engine system removes some of the cylinders: the injection and ignition interrupt full load leads to changes gear faster than ever. The voice is very emotional call a side effect of this ultra-fast process. An automatic dual-clutch and Race Start function is also included as standard.

Self developed AMG sports suspension Ride Control

The suspension, steering and brakes CLS63 AMG supplementing new drive system of high technology perfectly. AMG sport suspension ride control with steel struts on the front axle and struts of the air on the rear axle, and automatic level control is further enhanced by an electronic damping, and automatically adjusts the damping characteristics depending on driving conditions and reduces body roll angle. The result: ultra-fast adjustment between operator comfort and maximum flexibility. The driver can switch between the three types of suspension "Comfort", "Sport" and "Sport Plus" to the touch of a button.


Independently developed front axle, the width of the roadway is 24 mm wider, is the perfect companion for the new AMG sports steering electro-mechanical parameter. Not only energy saving features variable assistance to adapt to sleep, but also help reduce fuel consumption because the power steering system only pull out when the vehicle is actually directed. A 3-stage ESP ® also offers the possibility of individual adjustment - This gives a decisive advantage when it comes to driving pleasure, combined with absolute safety.

High-performance AMG braking system optional ceramic composite

Perfect deceleration, even when driving with great force provided by the AMG high-performance braking system with brake discs 360 mm vented and perforated every aspect. In particular, the resistance technology of motorsports in the test compound is used on the front axle. The optional high-performance AMG braking system with ceramic composite brake discs ensures the highest level of performance of the brakes and reduce unsprung weight. good contact with the road, meanwhile, comes courtesy of titanium gray painted alloy wheels AMG polishing a new three-spoke design and equipped with 255/35 R 19 front and 285/30 R 19 tires on the rear.

Intelligent lightweight construction: a significant contribution to the effectiveness

The highest level of engineering is also reflected in the body of the new CLS63 AMG, intelligent lightweight construction made a significant contribution to meeting the classic conflicts of low weight and high strength. As the SLS AMG, Mercedes-Benz CLS63 AMG is also equipped with doors with solid aluminum. Panels are made of molded aluminum profiles, and is about 24 kg less compared to conventional steel doors. In addition, hood, front fenders, trunk lid, shelf, sundries support and much of the chassis and engine are aluminum too.

light years: high-performance LED headlights as standard

Mercedes-Benz CLS63 AMG is the first car in the world to offer high-performance LED headlights, which combines the exciting elements of the color of LED technology - the same as daytime running lights - with the performance capabilities and energy efficiency of the present generation of bi-xenon headlamps. Standard equipment for the first time in the light of this new system offers the Intelligent Light System already proven to be the Mercedes models equipped with bi-xenon headlights with LED technology. Lighthouses and 71 LED bulbs in total CLS63 AMG unmistakable stress. lighting experts, Mercedes-Benz is the first time able to use LED technology to support adaptive headlights, when the new level of safety when driving at night.

Unlike the first vehicles with LED headlamps, with no compromises now necessary for the functionality and performance of lighting technology. Other criteria for the new LED technology: the average life of LED is approximately 10,000 hours, about five times more than the xenon headlights with LED light, and the best approximate the color temperature of daylight. This means that the LED is compatible with normal human perception of texture. Studies have shown that enhanced the color of artificial light, daylight, less strain on the eyes. When the color temperature of 5,500 Kelvin, LED light closer to daylight (6500 K) and xenon lamp (4200 K). LED daytime lights for lighthouses, in particular, the AMG will also be presented by two features in the band of light integrated into the AMG front bumper.

The exterior design inspired by the SLS

From the front, the new Mercedes AMG CLS63 AMG suggestive of SLS - especially with its grid big Mercedes star and wing-shaped horizontal slats, seems to have been inspired by the butterfly. AMG high-end model is distinguished from other variants of the CLS with its distinctive hood, a larger screen with "V8 Biturbo" logo and a special AMG front apron with black painted cross member. the salient features of the diffuser insert back cover, the AMG spoiler on the tailgate, AMG sports exhaust with chrome dual exhaust and dual output - as featured on SLS AMG - rear fog lamp integrated. AMG Bodystyling perfectly typical overview CLS, which is mainly characterized by long elegant proportions, line side ditch and the shoulder line muscular sports car, as on the rear axle.

exclusive atmosphere inside

This philosophy also continues through constantly indoors. All design and appointment AMG specific options ideal complement to the CLS redesigned interior. Wrap-around effect in the cockpit, with its high line that extends from the driver's door of the support panel to the door and front passenger is generously topped with high quality trim elements - available in black piano lacquer standard in the high-end AMG models. The quality of materials and workmanship meet the highest standards and ensure an atmosphere of exclusive special.

The wide range of standard appointments includes AMG sports seats with nappa leather, a new steering performance three-spoke wheel shift paddles AMG aluminum flat top and bottom, and the AMG DRIVE unit shifter with the compact E-SELECT.

New driver assistance systems: increased security

More than a dozen travel assistance for the new CLS will help prevent accidents and reduce the severity of an accident. Blind Spot Assist Active and Active Lane Keeping Assist is new.

Active Blind Spot Assist warns drivers when they found - with the assistance of short-range radar sensors - that there is a risk of collision if the vehicle is changing lanes. If the driver ignored warnings and are dangerously close to the vehicle in the left lane, Active Blind Spot Assist is missing. By applying a braking force of the wheels on the opposite side of the vehicle through the Electronic Stability Program ESP ®, created the yaw motion, which prevents a collision course.

Active Lane Keeping Assist now is also linked to the ESP ® for the first time. This system goes into action for action, if the driver accidentally washed up over the solid line to the right or the left. In this case, the Lane Keeping Assist active opposite wheels, brakes, and thus prevents the vehicle crossing the line. Display panel alerts the driver at the same time. If the signs are broken cross lane, the system controls the power generator on the wheel, which produces vibrations, and short periods of time - a discreet but highly effective guide countersteer immediately. Before the brake system is missing, always steering wheel vibrates a warning.

Design and equipment: designed exclusively athlete - a genuine AMG

Characteristically, exclusive, unique - the design of the new CLS63 AMG can be described in brief. The unique location occupied by the four-door coupe to high performance is evident that the moment you set eyes on her. High quality materials, a vast standard equipment, and a dynamic atmosphere typical of AMG, the basic elements of the redesigned interior.

Externally, the AMG high-end model is distinguished from other variants of CLS in response to some visual changes. The facade is dominated by the grid separate the three dimensional shape that is very similar to SLS AMG. The big Mercedes star and prominent grille wing-shaped horizontal strips with chrome trim are also reminiscent of the gullwing model. The long hood with its V-shaped contour suggests the block which is under strong.

AMG front apron is also much stronger: with the draw air intake on the side with black grills - flanked with LED daytime running lights - and central air inlet in cross painted in black, it allows a real function catchy. An additional peak seen from the front, high performance LED headlights. The distinctive AMG front apron with large wings continues smoothly, with integrated "V8 Biturbo" logo. The side view - which is defined by an innovative collaboration between the lines and areas, the "fall line" side and the wide wheel arches-Set - receives an extra touch of dynamism courtesy of shiny titanium gray painted wheels AMG light alloy, which offers a new triple-spoke design. Rays filigree also gives an overview of the generously dimensioned AMG high-performance braking system.

The back strongly labeled the AMG Mercedes-Benz CLS63 is an equal match for the front of the car and side views: Profile exciting AMG rear apron with black diffuser insert also contains the double outlets exhaust chrome AMG sport exhaust system and rear fog. The range features wraparound taillights LED technology and two-tone metal insert to other broad strong visuals.

The AMG spoiler lip on the boot lid reduces lift harmoniously integrated into the rear axle by about 26 percent and further increases the high-speed handling.

interiors of exceptional quality

Printing within the door opening is defined by the exquisite quality of finish and the "wraparound" effect that is typical of the TSI: a scanning line in a high arc of the driver's door of the dashboard support and front passenger door assembly, ensuring a sense of security. Viewers will discover the highest quality materials, such as the generous use of black piano lacquer finish elements. Up to seven layers of paint is applied and polished off until the desired high gloss finish achieved. A more unique touch you can give the interior trim components with the optional AMG carbon fiber / piano black lacquer.

The same applies to the skin: the AMG sports seats with nappa leather sports interior stitching elements of the quality of the surface is very soft, making the trip to Mercedes-Benz CLS63 AMG exceptionally pleasant experience. Driver and front passenger are accommodated separately, a new concept electrically adjustable AMG sports seats, multicontour and memory functions, heated seats and AMG markings. All design elements with which the driver is in contact with the skin over. Three skin colors, or black, gray and beige alpaca almond, are available to choose from. Two separate seats in the rear is designed to meet the front of the AMG sports seats.

The new AMG wheel steering performance with its three-spoke design, shift paddles of aluminum, a flat region grip top and bottom, and form special perforated leather. Coverage in three-dimensional air-bag is incorporated into a piece of metal trim in the "shadow silver", the bottom has spoken, who has an open design. Twelve multifunction buttons can control all functions infotainment. A highlight is the high-quality analog clock with a "IWC Ingenieur" design between the center vents.

Colors, three-dimensional display with the AMG logo welcome

The three instruments into a tube around the cockpit and driving to provide information on the temperature of the coolant and reservoir capacity (left), vehicle speed (middle), and motor speed ( right). A highlight of the instrumentation CLS63 AMG exclusive color TFT display in three dimensions in the middle of the speedometer which welcomes the driver with an AMG logo when striking the driver's door opens. The instruments are circular with a new look, red needles, one of 320 km / h speedometer scale and also a characteristic "AMG" and "V8 Biturbo" logo.

AMG main menu integrated in the central display in the speedometer can be used easily by using the multifunction steering wheel controls. The three states "Warm Up", "Set Up" and "racial" keep the pilot informed: "Warm Up" indicates that the engine oil and coolant temperature, "Set Up" indicates the course of the ESP ® mode, the suspension setting - "Comfort", "Sports" or "Sport Plus" - and transmission - "C", "S", "S +" or "M". In "Race the clock is clear This allows the driver to record lap times on private circuit.

The AMG unit, which is directed towards the driver, allows individual settings to be chosen for MCT sports transmission, ESP ® functions, the configuration of the suspension and AMG modes. Located in the center console, selector lever E-SELECT, which has a compact, sporty leather finish can only be pushed to move directly between R, N and D, all thanks to "drive-by wire. The parking lock , meanwhile, can be activated by simply pressing the button briefly-P.

All controls inside color is "silver shadow" of high quality - almost surrounds the AMG DRIVE UNIT and rotary switches to automatic control of temperature, via the buttons for functions such as heating seat or PARKTRONIC.

They also make a perfect match for the leather seats was designated designo black velvet carpets, with the shield designate and designo leather upholstery "corteccia pearl."

Chassis and brake system: Agile, dynamic, excluding

The Mercedes-Benz CLS63 AMG also occupies a unique position in the areas of suspension and braking system. The unique combination of ride control AMG sports suspension, sports steering electromechanical parameters and the system AMG AMG high-performance brake ensures a high level of driving dynamics, agility and dramatic at the same time the comfort of Travel Mercedes Fame long.

For CLS63 AMG AMG engineers developed a new AMG sports suspension ride control, characterized by a high degree of variability. A steel suspension used on the front, and all-air suspension at the rear. This solution provides a sensitive response from source before, while the vehicle is kept at a constant height through the system of automatic level control - regardless of load. Top-model AMG-the-line differs from other variants of the CLS with its three new front suspension-link with a wider track - increased by 24 mm to 1623 mm, compared to CLS 500th new platform for carriers platform for more negative camber on the front, so gives more grip when cornering at high speed.

Another feature of the AMG sports suspension ride control system is electronically controlled damping: the damping varies immediately after driving speed road situation and state of charge, which reduces body roll angle . Now for the average driver, the permanent adjustment between maximum flexibility and operator comfort - depending on driving style and road. Depreciation can also be set individually by pressing the appropriate button in the AMG DRIVE unit. Pressing a button is all it takes to electronics to switch from "Comfort" to "Sport" or "Sport Plus". The selected mode is displayed on the dashboard AMG.

"Comfort" to produce a sensitive response of soft padding, shock absorbers, but the answer is an average of 40 per cent stronger than in "Sport". "Sport Plus" is a challenging race course turns: in addition to the higher damping, this mode is a special control algorithms, which are plainly adapted to the style of a sporty drive at the road surface. Driving dynamics of the Mercedes-Benz CLS63 AMG can be updated even further from the factory options exclusive on the AMG performance Studio includes stiffer performance suspension, AMG forged light-alloy wheels and locking rear differential with 40 per cent locking action.

Eleven sensors to control electronic shock absorbers

Electronic shutter control via four sensors continuously the position and the braking torque and the steering angle and lateral acceleration. Four position sensors are also used to determine the ride height and determine the direction of movement. Three acceleration sensors to help identify the absolute body roll. effective control electronics continuously interact with the control unit of the engine and transmission and forces you to change the four shock absorbers.


The components of the new axis, and to improve the guidance

Tops axis, primarily in aluminum, is further evidence of the completely redesigned AMG sports suspension Ride Control. new steering knuckles, strut bearings and bearing frame of the couple in front of the head to ensure greater stability and better road contact. Weight optimized stabilizer tubes thicker to reduce body roll fast S-shaped curves. The rear suspension is also substantially modified in the interests of improved handling stability: a new track rods, push-pull rods and counter frame much more rigid - which is installed in the rear axle - improves the dynamic curve. AMG new kinematics and kinematics both axes also greatly increase the accuracy of the curve - a solution that has already proven itself AMG C63.

New, more direct relationship electromechanical steering

It is complemented by the newly developed AMG sports parameter electromechanical steering: with a steering ratio (14:1) which is 22 percent more direct than the other models CLS, and in conjunction with variable power assistance, which fits in a suspend mode, it can definitely agile driving characteristics when cornering. This parameter electromechanical steering also AMG sport makes a significant contribution to efficiency, since the servo function requires power only when the driver actually runs. Compared to the previous model with the regular power steering, which saves up to 0.3 liters / 7 grams of CO2 per 100 km (NEDC combined) to be achieved.

In steering the new operating system and auxiliary servo motor form a single compact unit and mounted as before on a support frame extremely rigid and light weight integrated, high-strength steel, which is located in the center line front wheel. The high performance controller processes a variety of parameters captured by the sensors - including vehicle speed, steering angle, steering angle speed, lateral acceleration and understeer / oversteer characteristics - and in a fraction of second calculates the forces that the driver needs to enter into the management of various driving situations - a car driving on highway at high speed. Active damping increases the feeling of safety when driving straight ahead at high speed.

AMG-specific solutions for precision driving and driving dynamics

AMG specific solution has been implemented as a fixed, programmed characteristics assistance. Suspended mode "C" direction AMG sports parameter is pleasant, offering a higher degree of steering assistance. I "S +" mode, on the other hand, the driver will be reduced distinguish steering assistance - which tends to lead to better road feel. This in turn leads to increased response and steering precision. Another exclusive AMG is the interaction between the new governance and 3-stage ESP ®: the driver would feel if the vehicle begins to understeer, thanks to a superposition of a defined time executive with an earlier system conventional steering. In "ESP SPORT" and "ESP OFF" special control algorithm helps the driver achieve a cleaner sideslip angle.

In addition, more precise steering and nice to feel behind the wheel, a new electronic power steering provides a number of advantages. The power steering is available when the engine is stopped, for example - in which the algorithm ensures that the internal combustion engine are not required to start the ECO start / stop when the driver moves the steering wheel when the vehicle is stationary . The new control system has also allowed the implementation of the Active Park Assist "parking facility and automatic driver relieve stress on road surfaces, out of the pavement.

The new control system is also to assist the braking surface of the handle significantly different (split-friction surface). Sensors detect if the vehicle is approaching yaw begins to turn towards the seizure of half the bandwidth more. Through the overlapping of control when the driver can amplify countersteer. When it does so according to this signal, the time control is withdrawn. Commissioning Steering Group to help the country to share the friction surfaces can be improved and directional stability and reduce the time of arrest.

3-stage ESP ® with sports function

The 3-stage ESP ® is constantly adapting to the excellent dynamic qualities CLS63 AMG: electronic stability program supports three control strategies for the individual touch of a button, the ESP ® button in the AMG DRIVE unit allows the driver choose between "ESP ON", "ESP Sport" and "ESP OFF" - active mode appears on the display of the AMG instrument cluster. In "ESP ON", the onset of handling instability leads to braking intervention at one or more wheels, accompanied by a reduction of torque.

Briefly pressing the ESP ® button activates "ESP SPORT". In this mode the braking intervention to counter oversteer or understeer, and the accompanying reduction in engine torque allows a higher dynamic threshold and, for example, corresponding drift angles - thus significantly improving the driving pleasure. The operation of the brake pedal to reset all the normal functions of ESP ®. Prolonged pressure on the ESP key activates ® "ESP OFF". Therefore, the driving dynamics, no longer reduces the engine torque - with the result that even more driving pleasure. "ESP OFF" should only be used by experienced drivers dedicated racetracks. In this mode, the function returns the pedal all the normal functions of ESP ®.


The logic traction system is active in all three ESP ® modes. If one of the driving wheels start to spin, specific brake pressure applied to almost create the effect of a mechanical differential lock. This means that engine power is transmitted to the road even better.

New high-performance ceramic composite brake system optional

As you might expect from an AMG high-performance car, the new Mercedes-Benz CLS63 AMG also comes with a braking system Ultra-high. Ventilated and perforated brake discs with a generous 360-mm diameter are at the front and rear. Because of the special stresses they face, the front discs equipped with composite technology has been tested in motorsport to help offset peak temperature more effectively. brake calipers painted in gray and white with AMG six-piston (front) and four-piston technology (rear) provides responsive, discoloration and deceleration very short stopping distances.

AMG high-performance ceramic composite brakes are optional and are instantly recognizable thanks to the "AMG carbon ceramic" logo on the calipers. Thanks to special materials and production technology used to produce discs of carbon fiber reinforced ceramics under vacuum at 1700 degrees Celsius, the ceramic disks are much more difficult. This life not only increases several times compared to a hard cast iron, but also their resistance to extreme pressure and heat. The result is very short distances braking, a precise point of pressure and resistance much more bland, even under extreme operating conditions. Ceramic plates more - before: 402 x 39 mm, rear: 360 x 32 mm - also has a complex design and is connected to a radial mounting floating in a bowl made of aluminum.

Compared with conventional brake discs in composite material, ceramic brake discs are approximately 40 percent lighter. Continue to reduce the unsprung mass, not only improves driving dynamics and agility, but also to improve steering response and ride comfort and contact characteristics. Six-piston fixed front calipers are fitted to the surface of the brake lining 2 x 154 cm2, four-piston fixed callipers with brake lining area of ​​2 x 73 cm2 for the rear.

Numerous features high-performance braking system for the comfort and safety. HOLD feature does not practice: if the CLS63 AMG has become the stop, the driver simply presses the brake pedal a bit 'stronger. The vehicle is now in possession of the brakes - even if the driver makes their foot off the brake pedal. This prevents the vehicle accidentally rolled forward stop-and-go traffic or inadvertently move uphill. HOLD function will stop automatically when the vehicle is pushed forward. Another helpful feature comes in the start-up assist. If the sensor technology detects that the driver stopped the slope, the brake pressure is kept constant short period of time. This means that the CLS does not withdraw, and the driver has sufficient time to switch to the brake pedal, without having to use the parking brake.

If the driver brakes suddenly to change the carburetor before an emergency brake, the brake system increases the pressure on the brake lines and pads for the brake discs so they can immediately extract the full, when the brake pedal is pressed. The system supports standard with Brake Assist, through this 'loading'. Other standard accessories include brake-drying feature that will be used to ensure short braking impulse for the film of water leaves a wet brake discs, which will significantly improve the responsiveness of the brakes.

Weight optimized "flow-forming" AMG alloy

A newly developed AMG alloy wheels make a significant driving Mercedes-Benz CLS63 AMG. How SLS AMG, where it is produced in the new "flow-form" of the process. During the manufacturing process, hot pressing in the bottom edge makes the structure of the denser material, thus improving the long-term sustainability. This also means that the thickness of the lower wall can be achieved. weight savings of up to 0.8 kg per wheel compared to conventional light-alloy wheels reduce unsprung mass, which improves driving dynamics and comfort of the suspension.


The Coupe comes standard with wheels painted titanium gray with a high gloss finish and a new triple-spoke design. The 9.0 x 19 format front wheels are equipped with tires 255/35 R 19-size, 10 x 19 rear wheels are equipped with 285/30 size tires size 19-R. The optional AMG Performance Studio is AMG forged wheels in 5 double-spoke design, painted titanium gray with a polished surface. They come with 255/35 R 19 (front) and 285/30 R 19 (rear) wide-base tires.
