Thats right. I did remeber that the C63 has 451 horses. For some reason I thought the CLS got the same.

I passed by the showroom last night, the car seems to have gone.
There is black S-class in its place, from the look of it's alloys it might be a S500.

AMG website shows her with 514bhp.
and the price of 1.75cr was told by Autohangar. I too felt that it should be max 1.25cr ex showroom, since the CLS500 is about 90lacs with full options.

With a full option, a 6.3L, and that AMG tag....he pricing does make a huge jump.
However spending that much money makes you think twice if you need to be seen in an MB or something more spectacular...but end of the day what the heck,,,,PERFORMANACE SPEAKS FOR ITSELF eh?????

In the US, yes, as that would be the proverbial " bang for the buck" .
In India, one would want the best of both worlds (spectacular looks/feel/exotic + performance) if one spends that much.

Sahil : These are the standard wheels for the CLS 63 AMG, not a 9000$ option.

The car was sold by me. It has been delivered.... but there is another AMG on the way...a C 63...

Nice car... Not too pleased about the colour.

Pricewise upto 1.2cr is acceptable although 1.75cr is just ridiculous (Broad daylight rip-off, in my opinion).

Wonder if anyone will get the Brabus Bullit (based on the C-class) which pumps out 720 horses...

I'd rather go for the Gallardo/Audi R8/Conti Gt for that price! More power and much, much, much better looks.

Nikibusa: I wanna hear your account on the CLS 63 AMG I showed you today

Yes yes it's an original AMG, but sorry can't share info on the location of the car, nor the owner [He would like his privacy]

But yes Niki please show your enthusiasm to the crowd

cheers:

+1 to that anyday, to the normal indian eye it is just going to be a merc c class while a r8 or gtr is a class apart. i am not sure gallardos in india come for 1 cr. india is good at ripping indians cant be so cheap

Guys believe me, i was standing right next to her, feeling her curves. The twin exhausts, the colour, the rims, the presence. It was too much for me to handle. Wish i could hear her or have a drive in her. But i know it will happen some day through my new friend DocG. Thanks a ton bro. I owe you one.

Niki
