Product Overview

Mercedes-Benz CL-Class C216 facelift is a flagship full-size luxury coupe in production from 2010 to 2013. It was available with a range of V8 and V12 engines that displaced 4.7 to 6.0 liters.
Compared to the pre-facelift C216, the facelifted CL has a small bump in the output of the V12 engines and replaced the the V8s (again). The CL500 now features a bi-turbo M278, while the CL63 AMG uses the M157, which is just a higher-displacement, higher-boost version of the M278 exclusive to AMG.
Unfortunately, the same ABC issues remained.
