2011 Mercedes-Benz CLS

Mercedes recently unveiled the official images of the 2011 Mercedes-Benz CLS. With full powertrain, equipment and performance data still under wraps, Mercedes has detailed the design elements of its latest creation, drawing inspiration from the past, the present and the future.
The new CLS has a long bonnet, sweeping panels and sharp glass. From the front, the CLS is reminiscent of the SLS AMG, with its dark, shadowy lamps and air intakes, and badge-dominated radiator grille, which is separate from the bonnet. Mercedes says the full LED headlamps in the CLS are a world first. A total of 71 LEDs are divided into three layers, with the indicators at the top, low beam side lights in the middle and main beams below.
In profile, the dropping shoulder line starts at the top of the front wheel arches and meets the middle of the flared rear arches, which Mercedes says were inspired by “the powerful stance of a predator waiting to pounce”.
The sloping boot-line follows the angle of the rear windscreen and leads to the wide, wrap-around tail-lamps which feature more LEDs and round off an aggressive and athletic package that boasts stronger styling cohesion that its predecessor.
One word: aggressive! Nicely done Mercedes.
