In that price range the Mercedes-Benz CL63 AMG ($145,200) is one of the larger sports coupes you’ll find. Based on the S-Class sedan, the CL63 has front interior dimensions similar to its larger sedan sibling, including an additional two inches of hip room. Headroom suffers, however, because of the sloped roofline.
The CL63’s sports car credentials include a 6.2-liter V-8 making 518 horsepower, and it has a zero-to-60-mph time of 4.5 seconds.
Other coupes in this price range are smaller than the C63 but could be accommodating: Jaguar XKR ($95,150), Maserati Gran Turismo ($117,500) and BMW X6 ($102,100).
Some sports cars have extremely aggressive side bolstering that can poke at your sides; in many cars this isn’t adjustable. The CL63, XKR, X6 and Gran Turismo have adjustable side bolstering so you can minimize the intrusiveness of that bolstered support.
