For those who don’t know, the Mercedes-Benz CLS was first introduced back in 2003 and was the pioneer in the four-door coupe segment. Meanwhile, new vehicles were introduced to take on the stylish car such as the Porsche Panamera and the Aston Martin Rapide. As you may know, Lamborghini is thinking to introduce its first four-door coupe dubbed Estoque but also Audi with its A7.
Anyway, regarding the CLS, it appears that the competition made the German manufacturer to work at its second generation of the car which is planned to make its debut in 2011. To take on the mentioned cars, Mercedes-Benz will also have the CLS 63 AMG which will receive a 6.3-liter V8 engine capable to deliver around 525 hp and 640 Nm of torque (same used on the 2010 Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG). Of course, besides the new engine the car will also receive the well known quad-exhaust system, custom suspensions, stronger brakes as well as a new aerodynamic kit and the AMG wheels. For those who want a green car, the manufacturer will also build a hybrid version of the CLS which will borrow the powertrain from the 2010 S400 Hybrid!
