Lightbulb Officially, Official: Mercedes-Benz adds AMG Sports pack for 2010 S and CL Class mode

Filed under: Mercedes-Benz, AMG

For those of you that can manage the payments on a lower-end Mercedes-Benz S-Class or CL-Class, but can't quite stretch enough to swing an S63 or S65, AMG now has you covered. Just as BMW offers M-Sport packages on some of its models, you can now add an AMG Sports pack to any S sedan, as well as the CL-500 coupe.

New front and rear fascias and rocker panel extensions give some of the more aggressive look of a true AMG model, and the S-Class' front air intakes feature LED running lights similar to what will be on the full blown S63/S65. Within the wheel wells are standard 19-inch alloy wheels or optional 20-inch units that again replicate the look of the more expensive versions.

There are functional changes as part of the package too. The AMG Sports pack includes bigger brakes with cross-drilled rotors. Inside, more wood trim including a combination wood/leather steering wheel are part of the effect. According to Mercedes, the package will be made available on all European short- or long-wheelbase sedans as well as the coupes starting in June, although there's no word yet on whether North Americans can expect the same availability. Click on the jump to read the official press release.

I like the idea of getting better brakes in interiors...but I think the outside of the cars shouldn't be touched and AMG should not be written anywhere unless its the really thing. Looking sporty and being sporty are two very different things....
