Lamborghini Aventador Races 750 HP Mercedes CLS63 AMG, Mixed Engine Sounds Are Amazing

Mercedes has done a manic job with the CLS63 AMG 4Matic, but even so the four-foor coupe needs a serious tech upgrade to be able to tackle an Aventador. A local tuner was glad to assist, so this CLS dialed all the way up to 750 HP.

The new twist figure isn’t specified, but we can be certain this offers a hefty premium compared to the Aventador’s 690 Nm (509 lb-ft).
