When was the last time you saw a real, honest to goodness hardtop? We’re not talking about coupes, with pillars between the windows, however slender or invisible. We’re talking about an honest to gosh hardtop with nothing between windows. They are few and far between. One of the most gorgeous ones soon to come to the market is Mercedes-Benz, completely revamped CL Class, long considered one of the most desirable--and rarely seen--cars in the world. With styling cues that pick up on the brand’s new design language, the CL-Class is something to behold, and given that most people who buy these types of cars do so because of styling, it had better be. And it meets the test on all counts. But before we talk about styling, let’s talk about the thing that turns us enthusiasts on the most: Power.. The new CL-Class is powered by a 429 horsepower biturbo V-8 engine, so as you can imagine, it really moves. But as has been the case with so many new cars, the additional power also comes with much greater fuel economy--a 10 to 15 percent improvement in fuel economy, and just as important in these environmentally conscious times--a 23 percent improvement in CO2 emissions reduction. . According to a Mercedes news release, “This significant reduction is achieved thanks to the newly-developed BlueDIRECT technology with third-generation spray-guided direct injection, energy-efficient control of alternator, fuel pump, air-conditioning compressor and power-assisted steering system. It also features the use of low rolling resistance tires and, on the CL600, the energy-optimized Active Body Control system.” With stylish, eye-catching design, exclusive appointments and cutting-edge technology, the extensively updated 2011 Mercedes-Benz CL-Class underscores its flagship position in the world of refined automobiles. Powered by a new 429-hp V8 biturbo engine which achieves a 10-15% improvement in fuel economy and 23% improvement in CO2 emissions. In addition, as you might expect, there’s an awful lot of impressive technology on this car: new Active Lane Keeping Assist and Active Blind Spot Assist systems. We will have more to say on this car in weeks to come, and you‘ll be able to make judgments for yourself this fall when it hits the showroom.
