2004 Kleeman CL 60


(from Kleemann Press Release)  The Mercedes-Benz CL 600 sets new standards of what to aspect from a luxury coupe. The CL 600’s Bi-Turbo 12-cylinder engine produces 500 hp / 368 KW and 590 lbs/ft / 800 Nm in standard trim. KLEEMANN increases the power to 627 hp and the torque to1.043 Nm by reprogramming the engine ECU. The turbocharged V12-engine is also fitted with a low back pressure stainless-steel exhaust system with two Trapezoid-shaped tailpipes to improve engine breathing. To minimize wheel spin the car is fitted with the KLEEMANN LSD locking differential.

Power is transferred to the rear wheels through a five-speed automatic transmission, reprogrammed with a KLEEMANN EGS (Electronic Gear Shift) module to fit the cars sporting potential. This means faster gearshifts and the ability to shift through the gears via two bottoms on the KLEEMANN sport steering wheel.

Performance is absolutely breathtaking. From a standstill to 100 km/t in only 4,2 seconds and after 11,8 seconds you have arrived at 200 km/t. The top speed is electronically limited to 300 km/t.

The KLEEMANN aerodynamic-enhancement parts are designed with the highest level of perfection for form and function. The appearance is sporty yet elegant and besides making the coupe look even more intriguing the aerodynamic package offers a performance advantage as well. At high speeds the front spoiler, with the built-in air ducts for brake cooling, reduces lift on the front axle thus further improving directional stability. The rear apron with the integrated diffuser panel rounds out the KLEEMANN aerodynamic package.

Another important customizing feature on the CL is the two-piece TM5 or the three-piece forged TS6 KLEEMANN light alloy wheels, which can be mounted on the coupe in the sizes 18-, 19- and 20-inch diameters. The largest possible combination on the CL is the KLEEMANN TS6 alloy wheel in size 9,5JX20 for the front axle with 245/35 ZR 20 tires, and 11JX20 with 285/30 ZR 20 tires on the rear.

To further increase the already superb handling characteristics of the car KLEEMANN has developed an electronic body lowering module (EBL) for the ABC suspension, which lowers the ride height by up to 35 millimetres.

The safety aspect of a high performance coupe like the KLEEMANN CL 60 is the KLEEMANN high performance brake system, which easily handles even the most extreme braking tasks. The KLEEMANN brake system features 396 x 36 mm vented and cross-drilled discs with six piston calipers in the front, and 342 x 28 mm vented and cross-drilled discs with four piston calipers in the rear.

Another focal point of refining the Mercedes-Benz CL 600 is the interior. KLEEMANN offers an extensive program for the luxury coupe. Included are such attractive accessories as illuminated entrance panels with KLEEMANN logo, and an ergonomic KLEEMANN sport steering wheel with a choice of leather, leather/wood or leather/carbon. The finishing touch to the interior is genuine carbon inlays on the dashboard, center console and door covers which creates a sporty yet comfortable and exclusive feeling. Virtually any colour combination of the interior can be fulfilled.
