Its finally here ! And that too with the optional wheels that cost $9000 !! The owner/buyer must have some taste and a big wallet.

I have driven this car over a long period of time in Boston and let me tell you guys it is completely BRUTAL !

The torque hits you like a kick in the chest and the engine pulls away to glory literally scaring the life out of you...although the exhaust is pretty muted, once you floor it the engine sounds like an American muscle...more like a deep bassy rumble.

Perfect engine, perfect colour and perfect wheels. You bet! Great to see a CLS with an engine that it deserves.

I am just thinking of the MRP. A CLS350 runs in the S-Class range, so this baby must have been what...1.5 - 1.75 CR? Thats stretches beyond a 911 and goes almost until the F430 pricing!

You _almost_ had that right. It stretches way beyond the Carrera and Carrera S but is close to the Turbo range and a little less, or may be at par with the GT2. F430 is around 2.10 + range.

Net power 507 hp @ 6,800 rpm.Net torque 465 lb-ft @ 5,200 rpm

@GTO- The car costed $105k USD with all bells and whistles(expect these optional alloys) in Boston. Which is what i paid for the 525d here !
So with adding duty etc i don't think it will cross 1.2cr max or maybe i am doin the math wrong.

Drool factor 10/10. Those figures are so damn tempting. The only thing on everyone's mind, "wish i had the moolah to own this beauty". Other than sahil, ofcourse.

Cars are imported from Europe so consider UK prices. A decently loaded one costs about 85k pounds.

Nope the C63 is 451bhp, the CLS gets the full blown 507 horses.
