Mercedes CLK coupe and cabriolets now have two new V8s to power them.
The CLK 63 AMG replaces the CLK 55 AMG, and has a new, naturally aspirated 6.2-litre V8 engine boasting 481bhp. It's the amount of pull that's most noticeable, however - almost 80% of its 465lb/ft is available as low as 2000rpm.
The new engine powers the 63 AMG through Mercedes' AMG Speedshift 7G-Tronic gearbox - a paddle-operated, seven-speed automatic gearbox with three drive modes.
The car comes with AMG sports suspension, and is fitted with 18-inch, five-spoke alloy wheels. There's a new front apron with side air vents and spoiler lip on the boot lid, while the interior gets Nappa leather upholstery, AMG sports seats and a sports steering wheel with gearshift paddles.
The 63 AMG coupe costs from £65,215, and the cabriolet costs £68,815.
The second V8 is fitted to the CLK 500 - it's a 5.5-litre petrol engine with 388bhp, which can power the coupe from 0-62mph in 5.2sec. The cabriolet is just 0.1sec slower. Top speed is limited to 155mph.
The CLK 500 also comes with the 7G-Tronic gearbox as standard, and costs £47,490 for the coupe ad £51,090 for the cabriolet.
