Good find. Doesn't look as imposing as the last CLK-GTR. But hopefully this one won't think it is a plane.

Did anyway watch the prgram tonight. Tiff Needell tested CL65 AMG with over 600 BHP. No price announced but 20 will be arriving in the UK. Now where's muy lottery ticket?:)

Tiff wasn't sold on it. I think that it was because he was likening it to the McLaren F1 and other 600+hp machines.

Moron - it has no real parallel in that type of company. I'd hardly expect the F1 to seat 4 in luxury with tv/satvav, etc.

Autocar reviewed the CL65 about 4 weeks ago, and stated it would cost approx £130,000. They also stated they 'expected' to sell 20 cars in the UK.

I don't know why everyone seems to think it was the CLK GTR that flipped over at Le Mans, it was the CLR, a totally different car, the CLK GTR is NOT a Le Mans car :)

I personally think that dispite the fact the CLR's profile is the same as that of an aeroplane's wing, the major aerodynamic mistake was removing the bonnet star! ;)
