Like every Mercedes-Benz coupe, it’s sleek, poised and rakish. Like no car before it, the CLS-Class welcomes its four passengers through four inviting doors in the Summer of 2011. Frameless door glass and a tautly arched roofline define a shape that slices through the air as deftly as its air-suspended chassis carves through corners.
The sculpted lower bodywork leads both the eye and the wind around the seductive CLS-Class body. A deep front air dam with mesh grilles and LED Daytime Running Lamps flows into chiseled side sills and an aggressive rear valance. Dual polished chrome trapezoidal exhaust tips provide a brilliant finish and a reminder of the power within.
A hallmark of a Mercedes-Benz coupe has long been its exquisitely crafted 4-passenger interior. A full-length console divides the cabin into four comfort zones. Each seat is individually contoured for its sole occupant. And every detail, from the hand-finished wood and leather trim to its abundance of advanced features, is impeccably executed.
This new-generation CLS-Class has a 4.6-liter V-8 outputs a fire-breathing 443 lb-ft of torque with free-breathing ultra-low emissions. Twin turbochargers spin up to 150,000 rpm, boosting low-end torque by as much as 45%. Rapid-multispark ignition fires up to four times in a millisecond, while high-pressure Direct Injection manages every atom of fuel with microscopic precision.
Look for the all-new 2012 Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class Coupe to launch in summer 2011.
