It's a tale as old as Dr. Frankenstein: sometimes, technology creates monsters. The 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLS63 AMG 4MATIC is one such beast, a behemoth called forth from the darkness of the AMG skunk works to terrorize the world with excessive amounts of horsepower. Thinly disguised as a mid-size luxury four-door, the Mercedes-Benz CLS63 AMG 4MATIC delivers acceleration only a few short years ago would have been reserved for the likes of the Porsche 911 Turbo.
Of course, not many Americans get to enjoy a highway infrastructure that is conducive to cruising along at 155-mph, nor are there any legal jurisdictions where one could get away with testing out the terminal velocity of this Mercedes-Benz AMG sled. Thankfully, the 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLS63 AMG 4MATIC provides enough of a reality distortion field to disguise its excessive amounts of horsepower when you're simply trying to get to work without setting a Nurburgring record in the process. It's an impressive trick - though an expensive one - and it hints at the new normal amongst overpowered premium models.
