The model will feature a more dramatic design and as expected, it will be powered by AMG engines.
Moreover, the car will also feature an impressive chassis, to deliver the best performances in order to justify its considerably higher price. The model will be like a larger brother for the stylish CL Coupe according to Autocar and Mercedes-Benz expects the new car to be a real success in markets such as Russia and Middle East.
Mercedes-Benz is also considering a Maybach version of the upcoming vehicle, due to the interest shown by the public for the impressive Xenatec 57S Coupe based on the Maybach luxury sedan.
Although there are no details regarding the engine which will power the new vehicle, we do admit that the all-new 5.5-liter V8 biturbo found on the 2012 Mercedes-Benz CLS 63 AMG is a strong possibility. On the CLS 63, this engine delivers 518 hp and can push the car from 0 to 96 km/h (60 mph) in just 44. Seconds and to a top speed electronically limited to 155 mph or 250 km/h. The new car is expected to deliver the same performances, in order to become a player on the market.
