MB are meant to be classy elegant cars for older richer men, not BMW competitiors so this car fits the bill.

Anyway it seems like MB is doing loads of testing on this car as they look to get theyre repuation back.

That is just the ugliest new car in the past few months. Complete utter disappointment.

New S-Class, Facelifted E-Class, new CL-Class, B-Class, GL-Class all lost the glamour and presence of previous Mercedes Benz generations. :thumbsdown: :thumbsdown:


The only two good looking Mercs left is the CLS and the face-lifted SL.

God bless Mercedes with this styling direction.

Looks great, very aggressive.
The front and back lights don't look very MBish to me tough especially the back looks like a hyundai coupe.

Another example of people judging a car too early by seeing only a few spy shots. Imho this looks very very good. Classy, agressive, stylish... like a CL should look.
Two thumbs up.

Don't like it. I'd take the old one, CLS or S-Class over this if I was in a need for good looking Merc. That's such a boring looking thing.

These aren't spy shots, these are official pictures from Mercedes. We're judging the car's styling, not how competent it is as a high-speed GT car.

And I think it looks like a whale, not good at all. Funny, Mercedes managed to make the four-door CLS look gorgeous as a coupe, but they couldn't make the CL coupe the same...

I know, but the thread originally was about the spy shots. And i think the new "official" pictures look really good. You have to know what the CL wants to be, and its exactly that.
I just wouldn't go for that wood and replace it with anodized aluminium or sth like that.
