Because we're required by international law to act as a conduit for every single spy shot taken of the upcoming Mercedes CL63 AMG, here again is the 500+hp CL63, likely again taken at or near the N rburgring, where it had been engaged in shakedown tests — ahead of its Paris debut next month. Now, spies are saying the CL may also get AMG's 6.0-liter biturbo V12, in a CL 65 AMG version, by summer 2007. That'll give the coupe upward of 612 hp. Werkswagen, indeed.
