Is the Mercedes CLS63 S AMG Worth the Extra Dough?

It only costs about $117K.

Underneath its four-door coupe styling, the Mercedes-Benz CLS63 S AMG is really an E63 AMG. You see, the CLS itself is based on the same platform as the E-Class. Some say its sleeker styling is prettier than that of the more traditional E-Class. Others are quick to point out the downsides such as less rear visibility. Whatever your personal design preferences may be, the CLS63 S AMG is certainly one fast car.

Powered by a twin-turbo 5.5-liter V8 with 557 horsepower and 590 lb-ft of torque, the Merc is very much a true German muscle sedan. Of course there’s always a downside, and as usual it’s the sticker price. Mercedes expects customers to shell out nearly $117,000 for this thing.
