SPY - The new CLS-Klasse caught "naked" at photo shooting


Some lucky photographers have managed to capture the first photos of a 'full monty', series 2011 CLS-Klasse (C 218), during a photo shooting.


The new 4door coupe from Stuttgart emphasizes a very barocque, luxuriant and muscular design, garnished with many interesting and intriguing lines, all of them put together in what may well be a reinterpretation of the flame surfacing concept. The mixture between curvaceous surfaces and sharp edges will most certainly rise a lot of controversy among journalists, fans of Mercedes-Benz and future potential customers.

As seen from the pictures and as anticipated, the new CLS borrows a lot from the ConceptFASCINATION prototype, which was on display at the Beijing Motor Show. The pictured model is a CLS 350 CGI version (to be powered by the new 3.5 V6, delivering 306 BHP) and is wearing the popular AMG Sportpaket trim, which offers revised front air intakes, a very classy and attractive one-louvre grille, special design AMG high-diameter wheels and a fancy rear difusser, and some carefully-tailored details for the interior as well.

Look for the new CLS to be officially previewed some time after mid-2010, with the public unveiling to take place in Paris this fall.

It is fascinating that weeks after the first SLS's show up on the USA scene, a price list has still not been posted on the MB USA internet site.
It's even stranger to find that Canada, Germany, and most European countries HAVE price lists posted on THEIR MB internet sites.
So I called MB headquarters in Montvalle, NJ to ask when we should expect to be able to find the price list (including all available extra cost options).
Here are the answers I received less that one hour ago:
1) MB USA has decided NOT to post a price list for the SLS AMG because they are in short supply.
2) There is no need for a complete price list (online) because there are only a few options.
3) The dealers know the pricing and you can find out what the prices are from them.
4) All of the SLSs for this production year are already sold and therefore there's no need for a price list.
None of these reasons should preclude the posting of a complete price list in the interest of transparency.
The behavior of MB USA is totally unacceptable!
