You will get your heart pumped up not only for its speed, but the Mercedes CL65 AMG will cost thousands of dollars to repair, and the latest you can get is at least a decade-old 2006 model. Imagine the mileage and the amount of work put on the car’s mechanics by now. Even if you’re a capable home mechanic with plenty of tools and knowledge about repairing or maintaining the CL65 AMG, you may still find the cost of the parts to be not worth owning this little baby. The CL65 AMG is not for everyone, certainly not for someone who is not swimming in a pool of cash. Unless… Continue Reading »

A car that maintains its market and quality for 60 years is something to admire. Mercedes-Benz, in celebration of the 60th anniversary of the S-Class Coupe, is launching the CL-Class Grand Edition which features, elegant paintwork, leatherwork and tires.

Those oil rich sheiks have nothing better to do but spend their fortune on exotic cars. That of course is not enough for some, which is where the tuning companies come in. MyCar is one of those tuning companies that will do anything for the right price, which is exactly what happened when a rich Saudi man wanted his S550 to look like a CL550. MyCar took the front of a CL550 and basically transplanted it on to the S550, creating a new offspring, the CS500. They definitely deserve props for a job well done.
Mercedes-Benz has some serious issues with models being leaked weeks if not months before they are officially announced. Today, courtesy of Autoblog.nl, we are get to see what the next-gen CLK or E-Class Coupe will look like. Even though, we have seen almost totally undisguised images of the Coupe, this is the first time that press photos have been published. The coupe is very similar to the new E-Class released at NAIAS last week, but it also borrows heavily from the CL, making it a prefect and affordable coupe.
If our friends over at Auto-Motor-und-Sport have it right, then Mercedes-Benz will be changing its naming convention for convertibles and coupes in the near future. The CLK will be the first to go and be replaced by names such as E-Class Convertible and Coupe in 2009. It’s said that Mercedes will expend this strategy to the other models as well, so that at the end of 2009, the CL name will be gone and replaced by the S-Class Coupe. Now this of course may come as a shock to some people, but if we go back a decade, we will see that Mercedes actually used such names to describe their… Continue Reading »
Our friend, Richard Truesdell from Automotive Traveler, came across test vehicles of what appears to be AMG versions of the 2009 S-Class and CL-Class. As of now, the only evolutionary changes that we can spot is the front fascia. The lack of camo gives might be a hint that these vehicles are on their final test run for a mid-cycle refresh for 2009. Just as Rich stated, we might be moments away from an official word from Stuttgart, introducing both the S and CL face lifted 2009 model. Check out the entire gallery at Automotive Traveler
