ABSTRACT

Running a 2.3-litre non-turbo four-cylinder, it produces 208kW through a sequential six-speed. BMW AG. has dumped ZF as its preferred gearbox supplier because it cannot offer up an Audi-style double clutch cog swapper for its top-end models. Merc-Benz AMG, in conjunction with watchmaker IWC Schaffhausen, has released 55 special versions of the CLS55. It features titanium grey details like the grille Louvres, fog light rings and 19-inch AMG alloys similar to a Schauffhausen watch.
