Mercedes CLS spied at official photo shoot


The new generation Mercedes CLS is about to make its debut. How do we know that? Well, because Mercedes has already been taking a few official photos of the four door coupe and one lucky guy just happened to be at the right place at the right time during a Mercedes press shoot.

The 2011 CLS will feature a larger, more upright grille with bold horizontal bars and angular headlights with LED lights and chrome inserts on the rubbing strips, window trim, and bootlid.

Under the hood Mercedes will place a pair of petrol and diesel engines, with the top version getting a new twin-turbo 4.7-liter V8 engine with an output of 429bhp and 700Nm of torque. That’s an improvement of more than 12% over the current CLS 500, while in the same time fuel economy is also improved to 30mpg. The CLS 63 AMG will get a new 5.5-liter bi-turbo engine that will be able to produce over 571 HP and 664 lb-ft of torque.

Stay tuned, we’ll get back with more details!

Hmm, not quite impressive yet.

Looks awesome!! I love the rear lights, looks almost italian, like Maserati or so. The first CLS was great, but this is even better.
This will look unbelievable as AMG version.

I think, it’s quite a good looking car; but, seen with European eyes, it seems strange that Mercedes will have huge petrol engines in the CLS, but for the Diesel: only a V6... Where’s the logic? The S class has V 8 diesel enginges, too, so why not take the 420 CDI..?
