The second generation of the CL was made from 1999–2006. It is based on the Mercedes-Benz S-Class, though it rides on an 8-inch shorter wheelbase. The CL's front fascia of four oval headlights is similar to that of the E-Class. The CL is offered as four models: the V8-powered CL 500, the NA V8-Powered CL55 AMG, the supercharged V8-powered CL55 AMG, the NA V12-powered CL 600, the limited production (about 200 per year worldwide), 5.5 litre V12 Bi-Turbo CL600, the very rare limited-edition NA CL63 AMG (26 examples only), the 2000 NA CL55 AMG F1 Edition (55 examples only), and the limited production (196 total) 6.0 litre V12 Bi-Turbo CL65 AMG. All models seat four people. Development took place from 1993 to 1999, with final design being approved in 1996.
