|There is no denying it - this is seriously good looking.|
But obviously, that last paragraph of mine was complete and utter rubbish, because the CL has clearly been successful enough to re-spawn in the new S-Class skin. Only now, the CL name is dead. Oh the horrors, not.
|Same S-Class interior lives on|
As with the saloon, the coupe has not been left out from its share of top-notch Mercedes goodies, notably the Magic Body Control - a clever little system that scans the road ahead and then prepares the suspension for any bumps or holes that may be coming. The result of this is a sublime ride, and a sublime advertising opportunity.
With the car's launch just weeks away, it is clear that there will be just one engine available from the word go. That engine shall be the 4.7L biturbo V8, coming with a fairly urgent 455bhp and a more impressive 516lb/ft of torque. That should be plenty for the luxury car that's meant to have a touch of sportiness to it.
|What the hell happened to the rear?!?|
There is no doubt that this car shouts 'Expensive Merc coming through' with its pointy nose and striking lines, but if you think it's a little too subtle, you can just casually tick the box to include 47 Swarovski crystals in each headlight. OK then.
