The new CL-C lass. A masterpiece from Mercedes-Benz

The coupes with the th ree-poi nted star have always had a particularly
attrac ti ve and compelling character. They embody our traditional refusal
[0 coml)romise and our passionate belief that the best can be made even
betler. Proof that thi s is possible is provided by t he new CL-Class. I[s lines
are everyt hing you would expect from a Mercedes-Benz: breathtakingl y

best will be astonished by ils adva nced technology and high level of comfort.

philosophy. Thinking ahead.

The V 12 birurbo engine: effortless acceleration

Behind the breal hlaklng accelcration of thc CL600 lies its highly advanced

athlelic. l ls output and tor(lue have been incrcased from 36BkW (500 hpj
and BOONm 10 3BOkW (5 1 hpj and B30Nm respectively.
    Then there's its outstanding responsiveness: the V12 biturbo de\ elops
its maximum tonlue at just IBOOrpm and maintains it all the Ilay through to

the key faclOrs which cnable the Cl 600 to deliver such superb performance.
In order to save weight, the cylinder heads are made from pressure-diecasl
magnesium. Airflo\\ is improved by the usc of three v31\cs per cyli nder,

AClive Body Control (ABC) suspension system for optimum roadholding

Fast reactions are also one of the great strengths of the standard-fit Acti ve
Body Control (ABCl system which adjusts dynamically to the condition
of the road and thu s ensures first -class roadholding. This not on ly results
in outsHlnding handling dynamics with opt imum ride comfort, but also
offers an even g reater degree of sa fet y.
    The system uses a combi nation of high-pressure hydraul ics, sophisticated
sensors and powerful microprocessors. Pi tching and rolling movements of
