The new-fangled CL65 AMG marks the 40th anniversary of AMG, the in-house “skunkworks” that turns out limited-edition, high-performance editions of the Mercedes-Benz line. There’s a hand-assembled twin-turbo V-12 engine under the hood, while the liquid-metal Alubeam paint brings a flash like no other. Only 40 of these Anniversary Edition C65s will be made global, and only 20 will be allocated for the U.S., though production of the CL65 is likely to continue at this exclusive rate.

Mercedes-Benz gives its SLK-class a significant update for the 2008 model year, with two new engines, a supercharged four cylinder and a six cylinder. Both engines show increased horsepower and better fuel efficiency over their predecessors. A new option, direct-steer, increases the steering ratio as you turn the wheel, making for tighter steering without compromising direct line stability.
