Mercedes CLK 63 AMG in UK before U.S.
Jalopnik has a small article about the CLK coupe and convetible AMG versions, which they say will get a high-revving 6.2-liter V8 engine, and will be released in the UK before it come to the States.
Mercedes is offering up a closer-to-market look at its latest AMG stormers to rock the division's first all-AMG engine -- the high-revving 6.2-liter V8. It's the CLK63 AMG Coupe and Cabriolet, which made their world debuts at the Geneeva show earlier this year. The UK versions will come to market before we Yanks will get our hands on the wee beasties. They'll get AMG's Speedshift -- a tweaked iteration of Merc's 7GTronic seven-speed tranny -- with paddles (thank you sir, may I have another!). These models get a slight uptick in power compared to Geneva show spec (481 hp vs 475) and 465 ft.-lbs of torque, a new AMG braking system, 18" alloys, and a new AMG body kit. Expect the US version in early 2007. Now you go, BMW.
