AMG CLS Coupe
Three kinds of boost. A unique kind of magic.
AMG CLS 53 COUPE
There's never been a car quite like the CLS. The AMG CLS 53 takes its distinction to even greater degrees, with a 429-hp turbocharged inline-6 with EQ Boost. And it wraps advanced tech in seductively fresh style.
A race that knows no finish line.
In an old mill in 1967, two automotive engineers with a passion for motorsports began turning Mercedes-Benz sedans into winning racecars. Today, as the performance division of Mercedes-Benz, AMG continues to create victory on the track and desire on the streets of the world. Every Mercedes-AMG vehicle is the product of craftsmen, designers and engineers who live to test limits, and for a singular goal: Driving Performance.
Born to perform, developed to outperform
Mercedes-AMG engine only starts with the state of the art. From there, everything from fuel pressure to exhaust routing is developed to quicken, heighten and intensify its response, and yours. A new generation of performance is electrified, much like the Formula 1® championship-winning AMG racecars.
Three kinds of boost, one powerful result.
An advanced inline-6 teams a twin-scroll turbo and electric auxiliary compressor to output 429 hp, further augmented by a 21-hp EQ Boost Integrated Starter-Generator. The result is a seamless torrent of torque that can thrust the CLS 53 from 0 to 100 km/h in a mere 4.5 seconds. 
Quicker, slicker shifts.
Numerous performance enhancements make the AMG SPEEDSHIFT TCT 9-speed a driver's delight on any road, and at any rpm range. You can engage its multiple modes via AMG DYNAMIC SELECT, and directly downshift two gears with a quick double-click of a shift paddle.
Traction becomes action.
Variable-torque AMG Performance 4MATIC+ sends the engine's power to the wheels that can use it best to apply power and return agility. From launch grip to powering out of corners, 4MATIC+ can vary the torque split from AWD to 100% RWD. 
Modes for all your driving moods.
AMG DYNAMIC SELECT lets you fine-tune the car's performance character via a single console control. Five driving modes, including one you can customize for yourself, vary the throttle response, gear changes, steering, suspension and more from Slippery to Sport+.
Pressurized air, for poise on the ground.
AMG RIDE CONTROL+ is an advanced air suspension that offers an ideal blend of confidence, competence, and comfort. Its adaptive damping responds in milliseconds to changing roads, loads, and the modes of AMG DYNAMIC SELECT. Automatic lowering at higher speeds helps enhance stability and efficiency.
Fine art, suitable for driving.
The CLS 53 cockpit wraps driver-focused control in artfully crafted furnishings. Beyond a spectrum of leathers and ten trim options, 64-colour LED ambient lighting plus available Drive-Dynamic front seats and ENERGIZING Comfort let you continue to tailor the cabin to your driving desires.
Entices the eye, embraces the road.
Standard 19-inch AMG wheels, or any of five 20-inch options, take a bold stance on handling and style. Exterior styling packages let you render elements of the front apron and the tailpipes in black, and the mirrors and rear spoiler in racing-derived carbon fibre.
A firm grasp of what's important.
Offered in four styles, the AMG Performance steering wheel features contoured side grips and a 12 o'clock band. Clever touchpads put a world of information under your thumbs. Silver shift paddles keep gear changes fingertip-close.
Subtly effective, symphonic effects.
A subtle yet highly effective rear spoiler and lower diffuser are aerodynamically shaped for added rear-axle downforce. Four polished tailipipes with a signature round design play the exuberant crescendos of the standard sport-tuned exhaust or available multimode AMG Performance Exhaust.
