Mercedes considers Bentley Continental GT competitor
According to the British magazine Autocar, Mercedes is planning a new high-performance four-door coupe that will sit above the current CLS in both performances and price range and will target models like Bentley Continental GT. Mercedes sources have described the model as "über-CLS" ("over-CLS") and it will feature a more dramatic design language and will feature AMG engines and chassis. Of course that all this improvements will be translated into a considerably higher price. This model will be mostly offered on markets that require ultra-expensive, high-performance models, particularly in Russia and the Middle East.
You should also consider this model as a response to the forthcoming extreme Porsche Panamera GT coupe that it is expected to be revealed sometime next year.
Same sources confirm that is very likely to also see a Maybach version of this model taking under consideration the huge success the Xenatec 62S Coupe has on the market. However, do not expect this new model before the early 2015.
