Unofficial Picture: 2011 Mercedes CL 63 AMG

The embargoes have been leaky this month, especially those emanating from Germany. Today's, though, comes from Stuttgart and purports to be the next S-Class Coupe -- known in the U.S. as the CL-Class.

Posted to fan site TeamSpeed, two images claim to show European-market advertisements for the new CL and CL63 AMG. We don't know for certain if these images are real, but all the pieces fit. We spied the CL-Class testing in the snow a few months back with only its nose obscured, so the nose job on the cars in the ads certainly fits with what we could see through the prototype's camouflage.

According to the source at TeamSpeed, the new CL63 AMG depicted above will be getting a new engine to go along with its new nose. That engine, reportedly known as the LM157, is said to be a 5.5-liter twin-turbo (Bi-Turbo in Mercedes-Benz speak) producing 544 horsepower. If true, that's a healthy increase from the current CL63 AMG's 518 horsepower despite a drop in displacement from 6.3 liters to 5.5 liters.

We don't know much more than that, nor do we have an official launch date for the CL-Class yet, so you'll have to stay tuned for more. In the mean time, tell us what you think of this facelift in the comments below.
