2016 Mercedes CLS 500 (407hp) – 0-256 km/h acceleration (60FPS)

FAST Autobahn acceleration test with the recently facelifted 2015 / 2016 Mercedes-Benz CLS 500 Shooting Brake 4Matic that pumps out 408 hp and 600 Nm of torque. This actually is the second time that I am able to drive the 500 engine with its 4.7 liter V8 Bi-Turbo and I must truly say that I had a completely wrong opinion about this motor….it is a masterpiece! I think that under everyday conditions its almost as fast as the 5.5 V8 out of the AMGs, at least its bloody fast compared to the 400er engine. And there is one major advantage to the AMGs, the 9G-Tronic transmission which shifts faster and keeps the revs down on long Autobahn runs. Talking about fuel consumption, the low end-torque helps to drive this car as a big diesel and my overall test-consumption on 2.600 km was 11.2 liters / 100 km, rather low for this performance.
