An Audi R8 can be yours for around $120,000, depending on which model you select and how options you laden it with, while the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG will set you back closer to the $180,000-and-upwards mark.

BMW’s entrant in this segment, the production version of the Vision EfficientDynamics eco supercar concept, will set you back even further, with prices reportedly reaching the $200,000 mark when the car arrives in October of 2013.

Look out for a world debut of the Vision EfficientDynamics supercar at the 2012 Olympics in London, which BMW is sponsoring.

The CL63AMG is a high-end two-door coupe selling for $423,300. Benz uses the glamorous CL coupe to break new technology and it has been the first to carry such groundbreaking technology as ESP stability control in 1995, active body control in 1999 and pre-safe collision preparation in 2000.


The top-of-the-range version of the new CLS four-door coupe is equipped with the newly developed AMG V8 biturbo engine, featuring a peak output of up to 557hp and 590 lb-ft of torque, as well as the AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 7-speed sports transmission. On top of this, the vehicle's fuel consumption of 24mpg US represents an improvement of 32 per cent compared with the previous model (all figures provisional).

The combination of an AMG RIDE CONTROL sports suspension with an electronically controlled damping system and new front axle, newly developed electromechanical AMG sports parameter steering, and also optional AMG ceramic high-performance composite braking system, is synonymous with maximum driving dynamics.



Like the S 63 AMG and CL 63 AMG, drivers of the CLS 63 AMG will benefit from an eight-cylinder powerhouse, designated internally as the M 157: the new AMG 5.5-liter V8 biturbo boasts a combination of innovative high-tech components which, in addition to spray-guided direct fuel injection with piezo injectors, also include an aluminum crankcase, four-valve technology with camshaft adjustment, air/water intercooling, generator management and stop/start system.
