M3 vs CL XXX on german Autobahn

Hey guys!
On my way on german Autobahns I have encountered a new MB CL XXX.
I have no clue which engine it had cuz I didnt say anything on the back and I am not to familiar with MBs. It definitely looked like an AMG body but I am not 100% sure. We both went around 100kmh when the speed limit was removed and we both went untill roughly 250kmh. The CL just pulled realyy really slightly away, might be due to my lack of experience with my M.
Which kind of engine could it have been? Maybe a CL63? Or a 600?
Exhaust looked oval with a diagonal line which split it in the middle, one on each side of course

Greetz from Germany

Sounds like a CL600.

550 has oval tips, 600 has more rectangular tips with a split in the middle.

AMG has quads.

Agreed...I was running with an SL63 the other day for quite a while up to about 150mph and not once did he lose me at all. If anything I started moving on him cuz he may have hit the limiter.
