fresh twin turbo engine transforms CL63 into a fire-spitting monster In theory at least, we’re at best grudgingly accepting the current trend of swapping large capacity normally aspirated engines for smaller units using turbos to make up the difference.True fuel consumption in addition to emissions can be improved upon This specific way, nevertheless at what cost? The first victims are usually the throttle response in addition to noise.nevertheless not This specific time. AMG is actually within the process of replacing its much loved 6.2-litre V8 that has a 5.5-litre direct injection ‘biturbo’ motor. of which’s first been fitted to the facelifted CL-coupé, which not only uses a staggering 38% less fuel, nevertheless has an extra 16 horses to prod the total up to 536bhp in addition to a whacking 125lb ft more torque.Impressive nevertheless not of which difficult to predict. What these numbers don’t prepare you for is actually the ground-trembling thunder, in addition to of which’s just when you start the thing up.Large turbo engines aren’t meant to sound like This specific. Nor are they meant to respond to the throttle like the CL63, either. The secret might seem to be not more turbo pressure, nevertheless less. Because the engine is actually still large, Mercedes can afford to blow only moderate amounts of boost through of which, which means the engine can run a compression ratio of 10.0:1, a number you’d normally associate that has a normally aspirated car.So there’s no off-boost lethargy at all, or any sudden uncontrollable bang within the back when of which kicks in. Any revs in any gear in addition to the thing just flies.In fact, its character in addition to sound is actually more akin to the old 5.5-litre supercharged motor AMG used before the 6.2, only with much more shove. We loved of which old engine, in addition to anyone who buys any of the AMG products This specific engine filters into are going to love of which too.As for the CL, the fresh motor with its solid wall of torque by 2000rpm has transformed of which. of which today feels epically, heroically quick. of which’s still large in addition to heavy nevertheless handles its bulk remarkably well, even in very tricky conditions.All we’d quibble about is actually the firm ride, even in comfort mode in addition to the fact of which you don’t genuinely want to see an Internal littered with quite so many parts by lesser Mercs. At £111,985, you’ve earned the right to a bespoke cabin.Then again, with one twitch of your foot in addition to one bellow by of which engine in addition to you’re likely to forgive of which everything. Just imagine what of which’s going to be like in a C-Class.Mercedes-AMG CL63Price £111,986; Engine V8, 5461cc, twin turbocharged, petrol; Power 536bhp at 5500rpm; Torque 589lb ft at 2000-4500rpm; 0-62mph 4.6sec (est); Top speed 186mph; Gearbox 7-spd automatic; Kerb weight 2145kg; Economy 39.2 (combined); CO2 244g/km
