Not a fan of fog light housing. It's just another tacky chrome part. Apart from that the first 2 pics are not bad. The rear chop makes the car look very big, heavy and lazy...

but Huckfeldt is just showing what he sees in the spypics. I hope this car turns out good. The current one looks too girly, with exception to the black series!!!!

I don't see Lexus LS in those tail lights. If anything I see a nod to the ES in the rear.


Actually, iirc the tailight design was first seen on the B-class followed by the new C-coupe (hatchback)

I like it. I like how the rear quarter panel design flows into the tail light.

It's funny seeing how MB and BMW are using similar design elements in their upcoming cars, like the bumper protrusions beneath headlights and the kink in the character line.

This is a lot better looking than previous chops. Huckfeldt has some serious skill.

Very interesting and yeah his skills are amazing. He tends to be quite accurate too, especially when we get semi-uncovered prototypes running around.

I agree with all your points made. The rear must be addressed urgently. So the new CLK will just be a E-class coupe? i know the current CLK is the E-class rear with the C-class front (W203) I can however see the W204 in this one.

Honest I'm still suprised. I see the thing everywhere. Infact most of the time I see it with AMG styling and I've seen a few CL63's
