If I'm not mistaken, didn't all the big mags say that the CLE would be a four door coupe based on the E Class, and it turned out the CLE was really called the CLS?

I personally dislike the CLS, but the 2nd picture really makes sence of the design. Sort of a coupe with (kinda) invisable rear doors (ala RX8) . Infact i think merc is growing so great, they will have so much product soon! EXERLENT, the more the merrier!

If these spy shots are accurate, I'd say this is the CL that truly inherits from the design of the beautiful W140 coupe, with its broad and flat front lights, high whites in the back:<p><A HREF="http://www.benzworld.org/gallery/pics/13_1309517_924200434909AM.jpg" TARGET="_blank">http://www.benzworld.org/galle...M.jpg</A><br><A HREF="http://www.benzworld.org/gallery/pics/13_1430054_38200590432AM.jpg" TARGET="_blank">http://www.benzworld.org/galle...M.jpg</A><br><A HREF="http://www.benzworld.org/gallery/pics/13_1307964_922200432035PM.jpg" TARGET="_blank">http://www.benzworld.org/galle...M.jpg</A><p>Yet retains that beautiful sloping rear glass.

here are some news from Autoexpress on the new CL:<p><TABLE WIDTH="90%" CELLSPACING=0 CELLPADDING=0 ALIGN=CENTER><TR><TD><i>Quote &raquo;</i></TD></TR><TR><TD CLASS="quote">NEXT CL HAS BENTLEY IN ITS SIGHTS<p>It's the car Mercedes said might never be built! This week's Auto Express magazine has the world's first pictures of the replacement for the CL supercoupe. It's based on the next-generation S-Class we revealed in Issue 811, and is due to hit the road shortly after that car's launch in 2006. Entry-level editions of the next CL are expected to cost at least 80,000. <p>As well as luxurious accommodation for four, the new CL will offer a limited range of engines, including a 5.0-litre V8 and a 5.5 V12. A storming 550bhp twin-turbo AMG unit is also under development. <p>Aimed directly at the likes of Bentley's Continental GT, the car is described by one insider as the very pinnacle of Mercedes' ability to blend refinement with performance. The company hopes to sell as many as 1,000 models a year in the UK.</TD></TR></TABLE>

That second to last sentence is so right. Mercedes may make more sedans but it's their "super coupes" that are the ultimate (pinnacle) expression of who they are as a company. Luxurious refinement and brute performance. I'm not a fan of the past CL's but this one gets me!

Seller Automotive
05-12-2005, 05:53 PM
Again, even MORE evidence that the new AMG 6.3 V8 will use a Twin Turbo (~550hp) set up in the higher range AMG cars (S, CL, SL, CLS, E)

1st pic is a chop, but the chop is probably what it will look like. i dunno if they meant to do this but theres only half a grille there. and the front left tire is a lot fatter than the others. again its probably the chop.<p>o btw, no fugly wheel arches on this one.

Yeah that chop is the worst i've seen in a long time...looks like a mid-90's concept. As for the wheel arches, we didnt see them on the W221 until nearly ALL of the camo was removed. The CL could have the arches but I see it barrowing more from the CLS than the new S.

From the most recent spy shots, it definitely looks to me like the "Wheel Arch" design will be absent. The shot below shows only tape over the fenders with nothing more than a lip visible.

I can't see a point in making both the CLE and the CLK, but if they made the CLK into a 4 door coupe it would certainly make it standout more from the competition, and would be a smart move imo.

The quarter glass is a lot longer than the current model while everything else somewhat matches it in size. It could only mean this thing is going to be at least 3 inches longer than the current CL. As if the CL now is considered short in any way.

How does that look like a 2 door S-Class? Of course there is some resemblence, but I think it has its own distinguish design...looks very nice of you ask me..and YES, its HUGE by the way..I caught it myself several times and that car, especially the hood, seems endless..

The front bumper is for sure a chop, I would say they got an original picture (looks very real and have seen it in other magazines) and choped the bumper the give it the AMG look, but we can have from this a very nice tip for the final result and I must say...... <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.germancarfans.com/images/forums/ylsuper.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>As for the clk chop.... <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.germancarfans.com/images/forums/cwm13.gif" BORDER="0"> come on, its just one more of those early chops which will have nothing to do with the final result...way too ugly

The S was heavily camouflaged in early stage of testing and sheding more camo as the launch date drew nearer. Since the CL will be lauch soon, there isn't any much camo on the car now. While the new C still early in testing is heavily camouflaged. I think having heavy camo and sheding off camo gradually is a normal process for all upcoming cars. <B>knihc2008</B> has a point also.

i get the huckfeldt renditions from the front, as they look quite good from the 3/4 perspective. however, a lot of the features that make the front 3/4 look good, like that odd rear half-arch fender bulge and the dropping windowline, just looks awkward from the rear. coupled with the chockablock rear lights, too. <p>and, let's face it, the side of this car looks like an audi.

The S-Class has far more obvious Bangle cues at the back and interior.

This car is amazing... more gorgeous with every shot, as the camo is gradually dropped. The rear view (despite someone's Jag S-Type comparison) is beautiful, and I'm glad they kept the elegant, thin C-pillar from the current gen. You can tell how the new pedestrian regulations have affected the car's visual height, but it still manages to look very aggressive up front.

whats with the mirrors?

I like it. Not too far of a departure, but I didn't think it would be. The mirrors are interesting, lets see if they make production. Doubt it.

I like it, classy and sporty. Funny though, BMW decides to make its 3-series coupe look very different from the sedan yet Mercedes seems to have done the opposite. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://images.zeroforum.com/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">

I believe the C-Class will be having a 3er type coupe now so this could be it.

CosworthKid
06-02-2006, 02:03 PM
Dunno...this could easily be a CLK. Rear lights are similar to the Sports Coupe but it pretty much looks like a CLK.<br>CLK is basically a C-Class coupe isnt it? I know it always had more visual similarities to the E-Class, but from what i know its actually C-Class based

I was expecting a leaner S-Class, with simple lines and a smooth coupe body. Current CL is one of the most beautiful and elegant Mercedes of the past 30 years IMO and along with the CLS and SL consisted my favourite trilogy of the brand. Im starting to really like the S-Class and ML as well...but right now i feel i will miss the CL dearly. Dunno, i hope i will like this in time.

I don't like the droopy rear ends of newer Mercs. But the front looks really good on this CL.

I'm not so sure about making the CL line look like the CLS, especially giving it the CLS butt. I didn't think of the CLS as typical classic Merc that will look good in 50 years, but as a very sexy high-fashion eye-catcher that will go out of style fairly fast.

my, what have they done to the gorgeous CL. the car is overstyled. bland headlights, s-class fender flares, cls swooping character line on the side, and ugly tail lights. i will definitely miss the current cl.

mzoltarp
06-15-2006, 10:12 AM
Wow! That is really bad. Looks like some attempt to meld the looks of dissonant cars' styling. I especially love the Hyundai XG350ish tail lights. This one is no beauty so it had better have lots of brawn.
