Mystery model possibly CL 65 AMG

When we showed you a cloaked mystery Mercedes displayed on the AMG Private Lounge website last week, speculation was that it might be the new C-Class in some shape or form. We disagreed after inspecting the profile shot and only finding one door handle. Turns out our speculation may have merit, as one intrepid shutterbug happened to be passing through the show hall for the upcoming AutoRAI show in Amsterdam and spotted the new CL 65 AMG, au naturale. This model better fits the silhouette of the teaser pic and justifies our reservations about it being the C 63. Because the CL65 will be shown in Amsterdam, though, we're a little unclear as to how it debuting later at the New York Auto Show will constitute a world debut. AMG's mystery debut in New York could still end up being a C coupe or something totally unexpected from Benz. But if it is the CL 65, showgoers should be in for a treat. This thing looks mean, and should have the muscle to back up the looks with its 6-liter twin-turbo V12. Expect around 612 hp and a whopping 738 ft-lbs of torque to propel this ├╝ber coupe to 62 mph from a rest in about 4.5 seconds.
