Not very pretty at all - especially the back.

/waits for SL65666HP!!!!WTFBBQ to defend Merc pride :p
How the hell could I? I will shoot myself it makes it into production looking like that. I'm a loyal Merc guy but I'm not a fanboy. I can acknowlage when somethings not right.

Its a shame its going to look like an absolute whale however it'll drive superbly and will have that excellent S-Class interior. Also all those new engines!

Ugliest Merc ever. Did Bangle design this? I hope they change it before final production.

Yeah I was wondering about that engine, I was thinking it was a typo. Because if it does have a 4 litre V12, then the article should have given it more mention since I believe this is the first time that engine has appeared in any Merc.

Its the biggest series of typos I've ever seen. Forget what it says on WCF, it'll have:
612BHP - CL65
517BHP - CL55
507BHP - CL600
388BHP - CL500
340BHP - CL450 (?) Might not have the '450 model
282BHP - CL350 (?) Might not have the '350 model
I highly dought Mercedes would want a diesel in their CL lineup.

^All that straight off the top of my head :) Hope that helps...

But this is a big, luxury cruiser. It'll have huge space in the back for people, big boot and all the comforts of an S-Class (but in a more sportier way). Thought I'm not keen on the looks so far, I love it!

All the cars mercedes makes are big, luxury cruisers :p :mrgreen:

You're so right... like the Smart cars are both luxurious and cruisers.

lol thats not mercedes, thats smart, and the fact that mercedes owns smart doesnt say that they produce them.
