MKB Tuning Mercedes Benz CL 65 AMG


Updated on

The German car tuners from MKB Tuning have upgraded the Mercedes Benz CL 65 AMG with several new features. Their latest creation is modeled after the twin turbocharged Mercedes Benz CL 65 AMG coupe, and some parts can also be used on other models in the CL-Class, such as the CL500 or CL550. This particular model received the name MKB 65/12 BT and it comes with modifications for the engine, as well as wheel and tire upgrades. After the engine tuning, the Mercedes Benz CL 65 AMG has a power output of 750 hp from the stock 517 hp, and torque was increased to 922 ft lbs. In the rear a new high performance axle was bolted on to accommodate the extra power, and a differential lock and revised transmission module was added.

On the exterior, custom made 20 inch MKB Alpha III wheels were mounted with 255 mm tires in the front, and 295 mm tires in the rear. Suspension was upgraded with new springs and dampers that lower the vehicle 25 mm. All these performance parts allow this Mercedes Benz CL 65 AMG coupe to sprint from 0-100 km/h in only 4.1 seconds and reach a top speed of 350 km/h. While racing around at those speeds, the interior of the CL 65 comes with Alcantara and carbon fiber trim as options. There are also a variety of exterior pieces MKB Tuning has available, such as custom bumpers, side skirts, front grille, and an air diffuser.
