Mercedes CLK-Class

Mercedes CLK-Class

With the CLK Shooting Brake study, Mercedes is offering a preview of how the design of its future E-Class will look like. The new E-Class will debut in 2009, while the CLK Shooting Brake study will be unveiled in October at the Paris Motor Show.

The CLK Shooting Brake is a mixture of a Coupe and a Shooting Brake, but also a combination of design with the future E-Class. For example, the CLK features a heavily revised front end with four angular headlights (replacing the four round headlights of the current generation E-Class). The friendly, flowing forms of the current E-Class are now replaced by more corners and edges.

Beside the new, fresh face of the new E-Class, the car will also grow in length by seven centimeters.

A hybrid version of the E-Class will be unveiled in 2010 as the E 300 Bluetec hybrid; it will be powered by a V6 engine delivering 224 HP in combination with a 15 KW strong electrical engine and an integrated starter generator.

The next generation Mercedes-Benz CLK, currently “in works”, will be a lot more ostentatious, displaying a dynamic look with angular lines, refining the visual language of the new C-Class sedan. Official launch is expected for 2009, sales beginning later. The CLK-Class will be $10,000 more expensive than the C-Class.

A TopSpeed reader from Germany spotted this car on the streets. And we decided it worth a little "news" even if we have only two photos. Let’s be serious now! How many times you have the chance to see an old CLK with the nose of a CLS?

The new CLK Coupé is a unique model series within the Mercedes-Benz passenger car portfolio. A fact emphasised by a two-door design – newly developed right down to the finest detail – which exudes both elegance and dynamic progression. Prominent styling elements – such as frameless, fully-lowering side windows that form a continuous band, a classic Mercedes radiator grille with central three-pointed star, the new reinterpretation of the twin-headlamp face and the sweeping curve of the coupé (...)

The new CLK 63 AMG Black Series based on the Official F1™ Safety Car – the high-performance AMG vehicle that has been providing Formula One safety since 2006. The coupe, optimized for the racing circuit, is powered by an AMG 6.3-liter V8 with its performance boosted to 373 kW/507 hp and 630 Newton meters of torque. Top-rank handling is assured by the sophisticated AMG threaded suspension with 19-inch AMG forged wheels, new steering and the generously dimensioned AMG high-performance brake system with its composite disks. Visually, too, the CLK 63 AMG Black Series clearly shows its descent from the Official F1™ Safety Car: its striking front apron with large cooling intakes, flared wheel arches, diffusor-type rear apron and carbon-fiber airflow breakaway edge, all demonstrate the car’s sporting and pur sang pedigree.

With its sporty appearance and sumptuous level of appointments, the immediately available Sport Edition is a new highlight among the Coupés and Cabriolets of the Mercedes-Benz CLK-Class. 18-inch light-alloy wheels in an exclusive design, AMG styling features in the exterior and bi-xenon headlamps as standard give this special model a particularly distinctive appearance. The sporty, exclusive atmosphere of the interior is especially characterised by the grippy AMG ergonomic sports steering wheel, aluminium-look sports pedals and special velour floor mats.

Motorauthority has put together a rendering of what they think the new Mercedes Mercedes CLK may look like. While the front headlights remind of a Lexus, the side profile does indeed look very much Mercedes Clk. A 275 horsepower V6 and 5.5liter V8 are expected to make its way into the first two models launched of the new CLk. Not enough power for you? How about the 500 horsepower plus AMG (...)
