If only it had suicide doors and no b pillar. It'd be like the old Lincolns then, man, that'd be cool.

This thing is hideous! WTF? Did MB go and steal Infiniti's chief designer or what? May as well save the money and buy the G35, probably more reliable anyways. Poor Mercedes.

RE: CLS is not a concept car now!

This is a beautiful car, no doubt about it, but underneath, this is just the same good old W211 E Class with a slightly more elegant outfit and less storage and interior space. It makes me wonder what are they up to? Is Mercedes getting in the fashion business with top models getting several pret-a-porter dresses to wear?

It is just fabulous! The first picture kinda reminds me of a Porsche. Man it looks good!

Hoping to someday own a nice black 90-91 560SEL.

RE: CLS is not a concept car now!

Hmmm,...I've seen several pictures of those CLS cars and I must say, I am really unimpressed. I wish it was a two door coupe innstead of a four door sedan pretending to be a coupe. To me, all Mercedes accomplished with this design is a more claustrophobic environment and really poor vision due to slant of C-pillar and windows being way too short. Plus the whole car is slanted a tad too much, especially the rear. The dashboard reminds me of a Jaguar, or should I say, a Ford.

I may have qualms about the W211, but heck you can't argue that the W211 isn't an attractive car!

Well, the idea is precisely to make a new car class [:)] Not a sedan, not a coupé, but something in-between.
