2008 Mercedes CLS 63 AMG Has A Naturally Aspirated, 507 HP V8 Waiting For You

The first-generation Mercedes CLS will probably go down in history as launching the luxury four-door coupe niche, making something like this high-spec 63 AMG very desirable.

According to the Bring a Trailer ad, this is a 2008 model with 36,000 miles (58,000 km) on its 6.2-liter, naturally aspirated V8. Also present is the P30 AMG Performance package, which should make it even more exciting to drive.

The car’s initial owner went with a Designo Graphite over a black AMG Exclusive leather interior configuration, for an understated yet stylish effect. Meanwhile, the previously-mentioned package adds composite brakes, a multi-disc 40% locking rear differential, AMG performance suspension and a high-grip AMG sport steering wheel.

The front spoiler however isn’t factory-standard, and nor are the black grille and exterior lettering. As for the Stance SC5 wheels, they too are custom and measure 20 inches in diameter.

Inside this AMG-powered CLS there is plenty of leather and carbon high gloss trim. Aside from the optional sports steering wheel, the cabin also features heated and ventilated multi-contour front seats, satellite navigation, a premium Harman Kardon sound system, Keyless Go, Parktronic, a glass moonroof, 6-CD changer and loads more.

Finally, the V8 power unit. It produces 507 HP (514 PS) and 465 lb-ft (630 Nm) of torque, sent to the rear wheels via a seven-speed AMG Speedshift Plus automatic gearbox. Sprinting from zero to 62 mph (100 km/h) takes 4.5 seconds, while top speed is electronically-limited to 155 mph (250 km/h). This is by no means a slow or uninspiring car, and on top of everything, it’s properly loud.

    Still the best looking CLS. It’s a shame that Mercedes messed it up. All they had to do was pull an Audi and update the lights and interior and it would have been fine.

    Nice engine.

    What’s also waiting for you are horrendous maintenance and repair bills. Engine issues, electronics and if it has the Airmatic suspension like the CLS 55..RUN!

    The best looking CLS. Until Mercedes itself ruined its own original & beautiful design with worse 2nd gen CLS, and even worse 3rd gen CLS.

      Second gen was the absolute worst in my opinion. First gen is the best though, no doubt.
