First, the bad news; Mercedes-Benz is phasing out their awesome 6.2L naturally aspirated V8 in the CL63 and S63. The good news is that the replacement is a 5.5L twin turbo V8 engine making even more power – 536 horsepower and 590 lb-ft to be exact.
The S63 will start at $138,875 while the CL63 will retail for $151, 125, a funny notion considering you’re essentially just paying about $12,000 for two less doors. The new 5.5L engine sees a 20 percent improvement in mileage thanks to direct injection and start/stop technology.
