Mercedes Benz CL65 AMG is actually a very perfect car. It’s one of the most luxurious cars in the market today and with 612hp it’s as powerful as a Ferrari Enzo. So you never need anything more than what the car already delivers. Or do you?! The thing is, even if you don’t need it, you still want more of everything! That’s probably why MKB Power has made a special CL65 with a simply collosal 750 hp.
Called MKB 65/12 BT, its engine is almost the same 6.0 liter V12 as the standard, but they’ve fitted bigger turbochargers, sport camshafts and high flow manifolds. Then with a bit of adjustments on the ECU the engine develops 750 hp and 1250 nm of torque. All of the engine components have also been stiffened up accordingly to tolerate more than 100 additional horses.
CL65 is as heavy as Titanic, but the acceleration is unbelievably quick at 4.5 seconds to 100km/h. The MKB 65 does that in 4.1 seconds and because there is no limiter to hold it back, it keeps going up to 350 km/h. To achieve this MKB engineers had to reinforce the car’s five-speed transmission and also fiddle with its software.
MKB-Power engine upgrade package costs 39,984 euros. If you want their special 20 inch wheels and tires you have to pay another 9690 euros and if you got that, you better get the suspension lowering done as well. That costs 1,630 euros!
