Clearly identifiable by its distinctive front-quarter intercooler vents, this prototype was caught undergoing road testing in Germany.<p>Like the current AMG products bearing that nameplate, the CLS65 will offer over 600 horsepower from a twin-turbo 6.0-liter V12. A five-speed automatic is the most likely transmission, but this could be the first V12 to use Mercedes' seven-speed unit. We'll see. <p>The rearview shows no badging, but massive rubber front and rear is clearly visible from behind. The wheels wear the same design as those found on the S65, so expect sizes in the 19-inch range with 275/35 rubber in back. <p>Although it's hard to imagine that the CLS65 will be any more athletic than the current CLS55, there are plenty of buyers in the U.S. who are willing to shell out the extra $50K just to get the badge. Expect a Frankfurt debut in September followed by U.S. sales later this year.</i><p>Source: <A HREF="http://www.Edmunds.com" TARGET="_blank">http://www.Edmunds.com</A>
