Looking at the rear, this cannot be the secret car the AMG Private Lounge hinted at.

Now I hate to sound ignorant, but what are the aesthetic differences of the CL65 vs CL63?

Those brakes (bricks!?) probably weigh a ton. I'll just go aftermarket with some light weight Brembo 6 pot front, 4 pot rear

Cough.
Gotta go custom bro -- composite rotors. Just like the E55 / evosport guys did or the Viper / Euroteck Motorsports guys did. The E55 guys cut their unsprung weight due to brake in HALF.

Well, check the first pic - it says "V12 BiTurbo" - that's an asthetic difference..

Anybody on the rear tire size? Are they still 275's out back?

*edit: yes they are. 275-35-20's. They seriously need to find a way to squeeze some 295's or 305's on the rear. With that much torque it only makes sense.

And we have a video

@MidniteBluBenz: My guess is that they are still going for the comfort. 275 will be less 'track sensitive' than 295 or even 305.

But I bet Brabus and Carlsson have a 305 option available!

It's only 6200lbs with the 1200lb gold bars option. I think it's Option Package PO4.

that car makes me regret ordering the CL63 so soon. The interior trim with that diamond quilted stitching detail on the doors and seats is amazing.

Is it me or is the rear diffuser now made of carbon fibre??

I hate the way those tips look. The old oval quads separated look much better.
