2011 CL-CLASS

Mercedes-Benz Australia today, at the Australian International Motor Show, took the wraps the 2011 Mercedes-Benz CL-Class Coupe, now available for sale replacing the outgoing CL 500's 5.5 litre V8 with the company's new 4.7 litre V8.

For the 2011 model year, the CL-Class gets a modest makeover, with the most significant styling changes coming in the form of Mercedes' new upright SLS-inspired grille.

Other styling features include a new headlight and front bumper design, LED 'daytime running lights', topped by a reshaped bonnet.

Under the bonnet, the 2011 CL 500 now features Mercedes' new bi-turbo 4.7 litre V8. Utilising Mercedes BlueDIRECT technology - with stop-start and brake-energy recovery - the new engine is paired with an updated version of its seven-speed automatic transmission.

Thanks to these upgrades, the new V8 produces 320kW and 700Nm of torque (up from the its predecessor's 285kW and 530Nm) - an increase of 12 percent and 32 percent respectively.

Fuel consumption is similarly improved, with the new 4.7 litre engine listing figures of just 9.5 l/100km, compared to the 12.1 l/100km of the current CL 500's 5.5 litre V8.

Mercedes says the 4.7 litre bi-turbo V8-powered 2011 CL 500 will cover the 0-100km/h sprint in 4.9 seconds, making for a 0.5 second improvement over the outgoing CL500.

Figures for the bi-turbo V12 model remain unchanged, producing a respectable 380kW and 830Nm of torque and covering the 0-100km/h run in 4.6 seconds.
