Mercedes-Benz CLS63 AMG
The Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class will kicked off the 2007 model year with the CLS63 AMG. Mercedes-AMG has developed the new CLS63 AMG, which is powered by a 378 kW/ 507 hp V8 naturally aspirated engine. The new vehicle's output has been increased by 28 kW/37 hp compared to the predecessor model, the CLS55 AMG.
Mercedes-Benz will be further enhancing this series' exclusive range of equipment and cutting-edge technology. In doing so, it will particularly set new standards with regard to safety and engine technology.
The CLS-Class's range of standard equipment will be enhanced by the internationally award-winning occupant protection system PRE-SAFE®. The system automatically responds by preparing the vehicle and its occupants for an impending collision. It does this by tensioning the seat belts of the driver and front passenger, adjusting the front passenger seat to an optimal crash position, and automatically closing the sunroof and the side windows if the vehicle is in danger of skidding. Such precautionary measures ensure that seat belts and airbags offer the best possible protection in the event of an impact. Just as unique as PRE-SAFE® are the NECK-PRO head restraints which are also fitted as standard. During a rear impact the sensor-controlled head restraints are moved forward to provide protection for the driver's and front passenger's heads within milliseconds. This allows the crash-responsive head restraints to reduce the risk of whiplash injuries.
