 "5.5 Liter Bi-Turbo V8 669HP, 734lb-ft Torque, 0-60 in 3.4 Second (Renntech Tuned)"

When it comes to what’s under the hood, the 2012 Mercedes-Benz CLS63 AMG launches with a name that is now more misleading than ever. AMG’s “63” moniker, after all, never was entirely correct: At 6208 cc, the last-gen CLS63’s naturally aspirated M156 engine missed the 6.3-liter mark by less than a 10th of a liter. And now, most AMG “63” cars are having their 6.2 replaced by a twin-turbocharged 5.5-liter V-8 dubbed M157.

 The smaller, turbocharged engine manages far better fuel economy than its predecessor (Mercedes expects EPA ratings for the 2012 CLS63 to be 16 mpg in the city and 21 on the highway, up from 12/18 for its predecessor) with, conveniently, more power. This CLS63 chalks up an 11-hp increase over the old car, from 507 to 518. Torque, meanwhile, gets a kick upward of 51 lb-ft, from 465 to 516. If that’s not enough, the optional Performance package cranks boost from 14.5 psi to 18.8, ratcheting power up to 550 horses and torque to 590 lb-ft.

Specifications

VEHICLE TYPE: front-engine, rear-wheel-drive, 4-passenger, 4-door sedan

Power (SAE net): 518 bhp @ 5500 rpm (base)/550 bhp @ 5500 rpm (Performance package)
Torque (SAE net): 516 lb-ft @ 1750 rpm (base)/590 lb-ft @ 2000 rpm (Performance package)

DIMENSIONS:
Wheelbase: 113.2 in Length: 196.7 in
Width: 74.1 in Height: 55.4 in
Curb weight (C/D est): 4300 lb

PERFORMANCE (C/D EST):
Zero to 60 mph: 3.9–4.0 sec
Standing ¼-mile: 12.2–12.4 sec

FUEL ECONOMY (MFR’S EST):
EPA city/highway driving: 16/21 mpg

 

 CLS: Charges like a Supercar

 Aided by a seven-speed automatic—the same transmission found in other V-8 AMG cars, it has a multiplate wet clutch replacing the torque converter—the CLS63 charges forward like a supercar and pulls relentlessly way beyond the 100-mph barrier. Top speed is governed at 155 mph, or 186 with the Performance pack, which also drops Mercedes’ estimated 0-to-60-mph time from 4.4 seconds to 4.3. As we clocked a previous-generation CLS63 to 60 in 4.1 seconds, we’ll call those estimates conservative. Turbocharging does squelch some of the bawdy V-8 roar that contributes so much to our enjoyment of the M156, but we’d say the extra power and torque are an adequate salve for that disappointment.

 The AMG brand is often associated with straight-line performance more than balanced cornering. For some vehicles in its vast portfolio, which includes literal heavyweights such as the S-class and G-wagen, that is accurate; but the CLS defies that stereotype. The steering—controlled by a fat, somewhat oversized, Alcantara-wrapped wheel—is a touch too light but very precise, and the adjustable suspension allows only minimal body roll, behaving predictably up to the limits of adhesion. Try to surpass those limits, and the traction-control system intervenes sharply. It can be turned off entirely, but doing so is only recommended for trained professionals. The brakes feel a bit too aggressive around town but are perfect on the open road.

Civil Pretender

If you drive the CLS63 AMG with civility (good luck with that), it is actually quite comfortable. And it’s even green (sort of): The engine automatically shuts off when the car is stationary, and a prominent “eco” light illuminates in the instrument cluster whenever the driver isn’t sucking too much fuel. Okay, so that’s not really green at all. Any effort at political correctness is thoroughly negated by AMG’s design team. The grille, with its single horizontal crossbar, quotes Mercedes’ traditional sporty motif like the grille on the gullwing SLS does. From the gigantic front air intakes, venomous-looking LED headlights, and wide fenders to the quadruple exhaust tips, the CLS63 AMG is a hostile take on the already extroverted second-generation CLS, and it has us in equal parts scared and seduced.

With the new CLS AMG’s attitude and performance, Mercedes’ continued use of the 63 moniker is fine with us. Memo to the industry: This is what engine downsizing should be.

 

What's New for 2009

The Ferrari F Rent a Ferrari  F430 - ** RENT A FERRARI F430 IN DENVER @OXOTIC.COM**  in Denver  is unchanged for 2009.

Introduction

The 2009 Ferrari F Rent a Ferrari  F430 - ** RENT A FERRARI F430 IN DENVER @OXOTIC.COM**  in Denver  is neither the most expensive nor the flashiest Ferrari available, but it might just be the best. Thanks to the inherent balance of its midengine layout, the relatively compact F Rent a Ferrari  F430 - ** RENT A FERRARI F430 IN DENVER @OXOTIC.COM**  in Denver  is one of the sweetest-handling cars on the planet. It's also one of the sweetest-sounding -- sports cars come and go, but the soul-stirring soundtrack of the F Rent a Ferrari  F430 - ** RENT A FERRARI F430 IN DENVER @OXOTIC.COM**  in Denver 's 4.3-liter V8 will turn heads until filling stations stop selling gas. With the advent of the new Ferrari California retractable-hardtop roadster, the F Rent a Ferrari  F430 - ** RENT A FERRARI F430 IN DENVER @OXOTIC.COM**  in Denver  has some stiff in-house competition, but the F Rent a Ferrari  F430 - ** RENT A FERRARI F430 IN DENVER @OXOTIC.COM**  in Denver 's lower curb weight and sharper-edged nature make it the enthusiast's choice of the two. If you can stomach the near-$200,000 base price, sports cars don't get much more rewarding than the 2009 Ferrari F Rent a Ferrari  F430 - ** RENT A FERRARI F430 IN DENVER @OXOTIC.COM**  in Denver .

A large part of that reward comes in the form of 483 horsepower from the above-mentioned V8, which enables the F Rent a Ferrari  F430 - ** RENT A FERRARI F430 IN DENVER @OXOTIC.COM**  in Denver  to hit 60 mph from rest in about 4 seconds flat. There are far cheaper cars with marginally better numbers -- the Chevrolet Corvette Z06/ZR1 tandem and the Nissan GT-R, to name three. That's where the F Rent a Ferrari  F430 - ** RENT A FERRARI F430 IN DENVER @OXOTIC.COM**  in Denver 's other charms come in, among them a sublimely balanced chassis, telepathic steering and the exotic wail of that gloriously free-revving V8. Sure, it costs more, but for the discerning sports car shopper, the F Rent a Ferrari  F430 - ** RENT A FERRARI F430 IN DENVER @OXOTIC.COM**  in Denver  is totally worth the extra coin.

Like any modern-day Ferrari, the F Rent a Ferrari  F430 - ** RENT A FERRARI F430 IN DENVER @OXOTIC.COM**  in Denver  is packed to the gills with advanced go-fast technology. Notably, the "manettino" (Italian for "little manager") steering wheel knob cycles through five driving modes that adjust suspension settings, stability and traction control thresholds, and the F1 automated-clutch manual gearbox's shift speed and quality. Of course, you can still order your F Rent a Ferrari  F430 - ** RENT A FERRARI F430 IN DENVER @OXOTIC.COM**  in Denver  with the conventional, gated six-speed manual shifter, too. However you order your F Rent a Ferrari  F430 - ** RENT A FERRARI F430 IN DENVER @OXOTIC.COM**  in Denver , though, rest assured that contemporary Ferraris, unlike their elemental forebears, are very much children of the 21st century in terms of engineering.

At the end of the day, there's a primal, unencumbered character to the F Rent a Ferrari  F430 - ** RENT A FERRARI F430 IN DENVER @OXOTIC.COM**  in Denver  that sets it apart from other cars of its ilk. Of course, that's not to say that there aren't able competitors in this lofty league. Porsche's 911 GT2 and GT3 deserve a close look, as do the related Audi R8 V10 and Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4. But if you want a car that will keep seducing you with its song till the oil runs dry, the 2009 Ferrari F Rent a Ferrari  F430 - ** RENT A FERRARI F430 IN DENVER @OXOTIC.COM**  in Denver  might just be in a league of its own.

Body Styles, Trim Levels, and Options

The 2009 Ferrari F Rent a Ferrari  F430 - ** RENT A FERRARI F430 IN DENVER @OXOTIC.COM**  in Denver  is available as an ultra-high-performance two-seat exotic coupe or convertible (the latter is known as the Spider). Standard features include 19-inch wheels with high-performance tires, carbon-ceramic brakes, bi-xenon headlights, auto-dimming mirrors, automatic climate control, power seats, leather upholstery and a stereo with a CD player.

There is a long list of options for the F Rent a Ferrari  F430 - ** RENT A FERRARI F430 IN DENVER @OXOTIC.COM**  in Denver , the priciest of which include carbon-fiber exterior and mechanical components. Among the more run-of-the-mill options are run-flat tires, front and rear parking sensors, a fire extinguisher, Bluetooth, a non-graphical navigation system with a very limited screen that makes do with voice prompts, and an upgraded sound system. There is also a long list of exterior and interior personalization options.

For track rats and those whose egos are not adequately inflated by the regular F Rent a Ferrari  F430 - ** RENT A FERRARI F430 IN DENVER @OXOTIC.COM**  in Denver , Ferrari offers the hard-core F Rent a Ferrari  F430 - ** RENT A FERRARI F430 IN DENVER @OXOTIC.COM**  in Denver  Challenge coupe. The Challenge is identical to the base F Rent a Ferrari  F430 - ** RENT A FERRARI F430 IN DENVER @OXOTIC.COM**  in Denver  in most mechanical respects, but is 220 pounds lighter. This trick was accomplished through the liberal use of carbon fiber, a Lexan windshield and windows and a lighter, center-mounted exhaust. Other features include a removable racing steering wheel, a firmer suspension with a lower ride height, center-locking ("knock-off") wheels, white exterior graphics and a unique rear fascia. Not surprisingly, the track-biased Challenge comes at a stiff price premium, listing for $50,000 more than a standard F Rent a Ferrari  F430 - ** RENT A FERRARI F430 IN DENVER @OXOTIC.COM**  in Denver .

Powertrains and Performance

The 2009 Ferrari F Rent a Ferrari  F430 - ** RENT A FERRARI F430 IN DENVER @OXOTIC.COM**  in Denver  is powered by a mid-mounted 4.3-liter V8. This naturally aspirated engine produces 483 sonorous hp at 8,500 rpm and 343 pound-feet of torque at 5,250 rpm. Thrust is sent to the rear wheels via a conventional six-speed manual transmission with an old-school gated shifter. Optional is the F1 gearbox, a single-clutch automated manual transmission controlled by paddle shifters mounted on the steering column. The F Rent a Ferrari  F430 - ** RENT A FERRARI F430 IN DENVER @OXOTIC.COM**  in Denver  also has an electronically controlled rear differential called "E-Diff" that helps to improve acceleration and vehicle balance during cornering. Under full whip, this Italian stallion will gallop to 60 mph in around 4 seconds and top out just shy of 200 mph.

Safety

The F Rent a Ferrari  F430 - ** RENT A FERRARI F430 IN DENVER @OXOTIC.COM**  in Denver  comes standard with antilock brakes and stability control, but there are no side airbags -- it's the Ferrari way.

Interior Design and Special Features

Unlike Ferraris of yore, the F Rent a Ferrari  F430 - ** RENT A FERRARI F430 IN DENVER @OXOTIC.COM**  in Denver 's interior is slathered in soft leather and high-quality materials, though it's still more of a focused high-performance driving capsule than a luxurious place to lounge. Aggressively bolstered seats are boons in spirited driving, and weekend racers can go one better by selecting the optional carbon-fiber racing seats. Buyers may also opt for "Daytona" seats, so called because their perforated upholstery design mimics that used in the classic 365 Daytona of the early 1970s. Interior accents can be specified in aluminum or carbon fiber. Although the Spider's fully automatic top lowers in just 20 seconds, its rear window is plastic, a lamentable sin in an exotic drop top.

Driving Impressions

The 2009 Ferrari F Rent a Ferrari  F430 - ** RENT A FERRARI F430 IN DENVER @OXOTIC.COM**  in Denver  accelerates with the gusto that only a true exotic can provide. Forget about the numbers -- one run through the gears and you'll be hooked for life on the V8's high-rpm wail. The F1 transmission boasts lightning-quick gearchanges, but its automatic mode isn't as smooth as those provided by more advanced dual-clutch automated manuals. The conventional manual is still very impressive, clinking through the exposed metal gates with loads of old-world charm. Handling is about as good as it gets for street-legal cars, with perfect fore-and-aft balance and precise steering that all but speaks to you in real-time Italian about what's going on below. The suspension is undoubtedly firm, but that shouldn't be an issue for most F Rent a Ferrari  F430 - ** RENT A FERRARI F430 IN DENVER @OXOTIC.COM**  in Denver  owners, as we're confident they've got a few other options in the garage for daily driving.

The Ten Least Super Supercars

Supercars are all about performance and style. Miss one crucial component, and you have disaster. Here are the ten least 'super' supercars ever made.

 


 

10.) Maserati Merak

 

The Ten Least Super SupercarsExpand

 

You look at the Merak, and think yes, this must be a supercar! It's got crazy styling thanks to Giugiaro, a mid-engined layout and a trident up front. Unfortunately, later Meraks came with a 2.0-liter V6 producing 168 horsepower. It wasn't super.

9.) Ferrari Mondial

 

The Ten Least Super SupercarsExpand

 

A V8 Ferrari, so what's not to like? Patrick Frawley will tell you:

 

The original 2-valve Ferrari Mondial 8. Take all the weaknesses of the early injected 308 and put them in a bigger, heavier, instantly dateable shell. The nadir of Ferrari's production cars.

Later ones were better but still don't get much love.

8.) Lamborghini Urraco

 

The Ten Least Super SupercarsExpand

 

Don't worry, it wasn't only Ferrari or Maserati who forgot what supercars are all about in the seventies. The Urraco P200 came with a 2.0-liter V8 to skirt an Italian tax code and it came with a whopping 180 horsepower.

7.) Lotus Evora5

 

The Ten Least Super SupercarsExpand

 

Don't get me wrong, I like the Evora, but it just isn't super enough. Kiwi_Commander is also forgiving:

 

My nomination goes to the Lotus Evora; but I will highlight the positives of the car rather than the negatives.

I know what you are thinking, that is not even a super car, but it really is as it comes in a MR configuration, has pretty decent power from a V6 and its pretty rare to find one on the road. Most importantly, it's affordable when compared to the other super cars. Not to mention that it's also sold in a 2+2 configuration.

Being the least super supercar is not a bad thing :)

6.) Venturi Atlantique 260

 

The Ten Least Super SupercarsExpand

 

The thing is that no matter how much we like their designs and engineering, the French pretty much suck at making supercars. With its 2.8-liter twin-turbo V6, the Atlantique had decent performance at the time, but it still wasn't good enough to save the company from bankruptcy.

Covini Engineering has made some great cars in the past including a diesel sportscar way before they got mainstream, but with the C6W, they were revisiting an idea that failed in F1 before. While we are fans, it get's a D for effort, but not more.

Shelby should have known better.

3.) Dome Zero

 

The Ten Least Super SupercarsExpand

 

The Dome Zero might have a cool name and the looks of a Lamborghini, but it also has a 2.8-liter inline-six from a Datsun. That wasn't impressive enough for potential costumers, so the project folded.

2.) Mitsuoka Orochi

 

The Ten Least Super SupercarsExpand

 

Japan's Mitsuoka is famous for making the worst retro cars in the world, but the Camry-engined Orochi is one more step into the darkness. There's no coming back.

1.) Hofstetter Turbo

 

The Ten Least Super SupercarsExpand6

 

Brazil had some pretty strict import laws in the early '80s, so a guy called Mario Richard Hofstetter came up with this fiberglass monster, powered by a 1.8-liter engine from Volkswagen. He managed to sell 18.7
