Our friends at eMercedesBenz have done it again, scooping everybody with the first shot of the latest rocketship from AMG, the CL63.

By now, you all know how to break down the nomenclature. This is the hot rod version of the swank new CL-Class, and is powered by AMG's purpose-built 6.3 liter V8. Power will be in excess of 500 horses, but we'll have to wait for Mercedes to release the official specs to know exactly how much the new mill pumps out in this application.

The AMG body kit adds visual muscle, while prominent "6.3" badging aft of the front wheels announces the goodness underhood. Open-spoke AMG wheels complete the makeover.

We can't wait to hear the rest of the story from Mercedes!

      I love the look. How much? Will it have all wheel drive? On Star? Room service?

      if this what future Mercedes Benz's are going to look like then my long lost respect and love for these automative masterpieces is sure to return. Lovely, i wonder if it puts an M6 to the dirt. Mind u the M6 is a flawless car in my regard.

      Problem is you can't put adults in the back the way you can with my 06 CL55 AMG.

      It also looks too BMW-tacky.

      Beautiful, and obviously, out of my price range.

      According to Forbes:

      "The cruise control on DaimlerChrysler's new Mercedes-Benz CL63 AMG coupe offers an autopilot function for stop-and-go traffic; Mercedes will tell you that you still need to pay attention to the road, but our test drives indicate that you can read a magazine with your feet on the dash while the CL does the driving. The system uses radars to monitor the distance between your CL and the car in front of you. It brakes, steers and accelerates as needed to trail another car at a fixed distance."
