You have to appreciate the bombastic nature of the AMG division for fitting an engine as massive and mental as the twin-turbocharged 6-liter V12 (known in AMG-speak as the “65”), which creates power on a nearly geological scale. It may look like a car, but with 738 ft-lbs. of torque available at just 2,000 RPM, it could double as a locomotive. Instead of hauling boxcars around, however, the S-Class-based coupe can rattle off some impressive acceleration numbers. How does 0-60 mph in just 3.8 seconds sound for a large, luxurious two-door with all the refinement and quality you’d expect from a Mercedes? In addition, the sleek new lines of the coupe are enhanced by AMG-specific bodycladding, in the tradition of the in-house tuning arm, that make the CL 65 AMG a real looker. It’s hard to argue with this kind of incredible performance, luxury, and style all wrapped in the same package—although it all comes with a price, as do the best things in life.
