2011 Mercedes-Benz CL65 AMG – Click above for image gallery

Thanks to the folks at of 4WheelsNews, we may have an idea of what the facelifted Mercedes-Benz CL63 and CL65 AMG will look like. The site managed to get its paws on what looks to be some leaked images of the cars ahead of the range's official announcement. From what we can tell, it looks like the two heavy-breathing coupes will receive the Silver Arrow's new front-fascia treatment, which means a more upright grille, along with redesigned headlights and fenders. It looks like the hood will get a mild touch-up as well, and a more aggressive lower fascia with LED daytime running lights seems to have made its way into the mix.

Overall, the design is pretty sharp, and looks more at home on the CL than the big R-Class. We still don't know exactly what Mercedes-Benz will do when it comes to powertrain options. Our guess is that things will stay fairly similar to what's currently available, but some sources have pointed to the arrival of the same 5.5-liter V8 engine from the S63 AMG in the CL line as all but inevitable. If true, that would put the CL63 at 544 horsepower. Sounds good to us.

      I like where Mercedes is going with their design (C, S and CL).

      I'd like to see a diesel AMG in the future.

      A definite improvement over the current model. The more aggressive styling is much better than the rounded shapes of the current one. I like where MB's style is going by trying to target the younger markets.

      I think this is the best representation of Mercedes' new design language yet. The car looks sharp like the post says. And I don't even really like Mercedes.

      Is it just me or are Mercedes, Audi, and BMW all using that character line/crease that swoops across the side of the car from above the back wheel to the front wheel? Not that there's anything wrong with that. It's actually one of the better ones for what its worth.

      In Europe the CL will renamed to S-Coupe. Is that also in the US? I love the car by the way!

      This isn't the CL AMG. It's the S63/65 AMG Coupe.

      The CL is such a great looking vehicle, it always has been as well.

      God I'd love to own one some day....

      I hope this car comes to the US market. as others have said, it is the best expression of MB's newest design language. Very well executed.
