I too find the front end bit boring, pretty much the same as the old one.

The rear end is much better and looks sportier. With the specs you give, it's obvious that the big change is in the inside, and it's sounding interesting!

When the new Mercedes CL will make its debut at this year?s Paris Motor Show, AMG will show their interpretation of the new coup?, the CL 63 AMG, equipped with all kinds of luxury features plus the 6.3-litre V8 returning 514 bhp ? the same engine used for the CLS 63 which debuted just after the launch of the standard CLS two years ago. We reckon that the CL will be available in 65 AMG-guise, too ? maybe in summer 2007. It will be powered by the same 612 bhp 6-litre bi-turbo V12 used in the S-Class. And like all the top AMG cars, it?ll be getting the performance optic with the new bumper and the additional air-intakes in front of the wheel arche.

I think the fronts allright, the sides pretty nice but the rear is still questionable :|

It looks better everytime I see it AMG'd up but it'll look sleeker if it were lower and if there was a CLS style creace down the side of the car. Its just lacking something in the rear IMO...gotta wait til I see some official pics.

Two new spyshots - *note* computer editing has removed a "few strips of tape"...

Looks like either a CL450 or CL550 to me.

Here are the latest photos of the next-generation Mercedes-Benz CL Coupe. The company?s engineers have been driving a prototype without any disguise; just a few strips of tape were removed by the computer of our photographer, Hans Lehmann / Hidden Image. As you can see, the new car?s styling will be much sleeker and much more elegant. The trunk lid and rear end remind us somewhat of the Maybach, complete with a refined luxurious interior, technical equipment and visibly flared fenders.

Our sources indicate that engines available will range from a 3.7-liter V-6 to a V12 in gasoline forms. There is the possibility of a coupe with the company?s 3.2-liter V-6 and/or the 4.0-liter V-8 diesel. The top of the line model is going to be the AMG version powered by a 6.3-liter V-12, delivering over 600 HP.The new CL is scheduled for release at the Paris Motor Show this fall.

I know they're slightly computer edited and all but the front kinda looks BMW 6-Series...but it looks okay to me. Just the back a bit heavy and not as elegant as current CL.

//edit; I'm having difficulty deciding if this is an AMG or not. The grill is AMG, the bodykit is AMG yet it only has 2-exhaust pipes which is not normal. Could just be a normal CL but with the optional "AMG sport pack" but then that wouldn't come equipped with AMG grill. So its a bit of a mix and got me confused...

it's going to be a great car with all the futuristic features of the S but the styling is not futuristic at all , it's too .........or not enough.....in fact I don't now but something is missing !
