When will AMG get the credit it deserves? I am a C55 AMG owner and granted this is NOT a C55 but much more special. AMG has turned out beast after beast and very rarely gets the attention the M's get (M3 at least). One must understand, AMG is typically taking a soft, tame, boat of an auto (see: most stock MB's) that grandpa just loves for it's nice, smooth ride and frankensteining them into some of the most radical productions cars on the road. The numbers are staggering-hp, torque, 0-60. Even my lil C55 pumps out near 400 hp and is sub 4 secs 0-60 and that's a "starter AMG". No, there is no AWD and there is no manual shift but if a sports car can get it done with good old fashioned RWD and grunt- what's wrong with that? Also, even in Europe, the manual shift is dying as they all realize that the "manumatic", "tiptronic" type shifting is actually quicker than manual.Ok, for all you die-hards that need a clutch I get it- go get an M3 or 5, audi or maybe a 911. I don't have any problem with that but understand that the manual shift is only alive because of american demand and may soon be gone-like it or not. What else can carry you in such opulence, inside and out, give you rrom for 4 and their luggage and still snap your passengers' necks off at C2-C3? Only an AMG....read morehide

- Fast, responsive, comfortable and eye appealing.
- None so far.
Finally, a luxury car that can be fast, fun and a pleasure to ride in. Throw in attractive lines and state of the art technology and The CL 63 is a tough act to follow. And with it's prodigious power, following is about all most other cars will be able to do.
Although I've owned many fine cars and have checked this site often for reviews, this is the first review I've written.That's the type of impression this car can leave. Even reticent types like me will feel the need to say something about it....read morehide

- Great Looking with AMG Package, Deceptively fast, Comfortable ride
- Typical MB NAV (I don't like), Breaks are very squeaky
I have owned the car a few months now and I love it overall. I think the AC seats could be improved, handling is great as well as overall performance! Gear ratios needed a little work... Once I put the Barabus chip in, I love it even more!

- The best handling "big" car I have ever driven, and it is more comforable than my home or office.
- The satellite radio reception is poor, and certain features can not be accessed when in motion.
This is the best Mercedes that I have ever
driven. The AMG trim really sets it apart
from the pack.
