Exclusive dynamism for the new top coupé from Mercedes-Benz: Powerful AMG styling for the new CL-Class Stuttgart, Jul 14, 2006 For the new CL-Class, the ultimate luxury coupé, Mercedes-AMG has now developed two AMG optional extras: a powerful AMG bodystyling package and expressive 19-inch AMG light-alloy wheels with mixed-width tyres. These distinctive AMG components are available for both engine versions. The AMG bodystyling for the new Mercedes-Benz CL-Class comprises a front and rear apron and side skirts. The redesigned front bumper with enlarged air intakes and chrome-ringed circular fog lamps is lithe and athletic in appearance. Typical AMG styling, with two slanted struts and a smooth transition to the prominent wheel arches, gives a strong air of confidence and emphasises the sense of width. The AMG side skirts carry the muscular lines seamlessly through to the AMG rear apron. The rear bumper with its black insert and chrome trim strip flanked by tailpipes on either side creates a dynamic and exclusive impression. 19-inch AMG light-alloy wheels combine superb looks with optimal handling Also available for the new CL-Class, as an optimal complement to the AMG bodystyling, are 19-inch five-spoke AMG light-alloy wheels with embossed AMG lettering. The high-sheen rim flange and spokes are always eye-catching, whether the vehicle is standing still or on the move. The 8.5/9.5-inch-wide wheels carry 255/40 (front) and 275/40 (rear) tyres. The wide AMG wheels fill out the prominent wheel arches perfectly, giving the side view a sporty appearance. AMG bodystyling and AMG light-alloy wheels available for both engine versions Pre-orders are already being taken for the AMG bodystyling and AMG light-alloy wheels. The market launch date will be September 2006. The AMG components are available for both the eight-cylinder CL 500 and the V12 top-of-the-line CL 600 model. The ex-factory prices are EUR 5,336 for the AMG bodystyling package and EUR 3,132 (CL 500)/EUR 1,972 (CL 600) for the AMG light-alloy wheels (all figures include 16 % VAT).
