LA Auto Show: 2012 Mercedes-Benz CLS63 AMG is Coming

Mercedes-AMG

It's known that when Mercedes-Benz released a new model, an AMG is around the corner. That was the expectation when MBZ unveiled the new CLS-Class in Paris. Sources were then stating that the automaker would debut the AMG CLS at the Los Angeles Auto Show, and it will. We expect the 2012 CLS63 AMG to use Benz's new twin-turbo 5.5-liter V8 that's capable of producing over 544 horsepower.

That power will go straight through the latest seven-speed AMG Speedshift automatic transmission. As always, an AMG Performance Package will be available, and it's expected to boost performance numbers up to 571 horsepower. The exterior will be slightly more aggressive, complete with large AMG wheels and a host of LED lamps. Inside will be refined and luxurious, as always. The cabin will feature sport seats and carbon fiber trim. Stay tuned for the CLS and many more from the Los Angeles Auto Show.
