Thumbs up The new CLS is going to look insane. This teaser proves why.

Omfg I've never been so excited about a concept that has shown so little.

Quote:
The first concept to be officially unveiled at the Detroit Auto Show is this, a sculpture by Mercedes-Benz that foretells the future of its vehicles and specifically the CLS.

From the SLS AMG-inspired fascia to the overly blistered fenders clearly inspired by the recent E-Class coupe, the T2-style sculpture features two signature lines that are set to infect the rest of the Mercedes line-up in the near future.

According to officials, this stylistic exercise represents M-B's transition from its traditional wedge shape to a new, edgy art-deco design inspired by the '30s. Aesthetic fripperies aside, this is the future of the CLS, which we expect to see in full concept form later this year.

I think the BMW 6 CS will look and perform better. M6 CS will be a killer-monster!!!!!!!

Does look like its going to look great. My old man has the current one. Its lovely to look at and ride in as a passenger, so comfy. Aint patch on my 335 though in the performance and handling stakes.

I remember when the CLS first came out, I thought it looked SOOOOO classy. I love them!

I've always been a huge fan of the CLS! This one looks like it will be sick! Look at those fender flares...

I think the CLS AMG is to long; almost looks like a boat. But it's got a nasty 507hp engine.

The current gen CLS is so meh imo. It looks like a banana. And we have a CLS63...it doesn't do much to make me like it.

I was always a huge fan of the CLS until Volkswagen released the Passat CC and then it looked ordinary.

Hope this new one relights that spark.
