    Whats going on with the CLE/CLS

    Ive hear d so many different things from so many different sources. It sounds like it'd make for an awesome coupe/"four door coupe" but there is no real evidence that this thing even exsist and the pics that are supposedly spy shots of the car look more like 05'/06' S-class mules???????? If anyone has any reliable info on this car please share!!!!!!!!!!!!!????????????

    Re: Whats going on with the CLE/CLS

    Latest info is that production starts next year.
    As far as I heard, the official presentation to the public is scheduled for the IAA 2003 in Frankfurt in Sept.

    But the car we will see in frankfurt will just be a concept-car. And I don't think, that the final CLS already can be produced next year, I think the beginning of '05 is more probable...but it's just a guess.

    Re: Whats going on with the CLE/CLS

    Keep in mind today the time between in which a conept is intorduce and then put into production can take place rather quickly. Take for example the new Ford GT, that car only took a year to develop. While other cars such as the SLR take a long time to develop into feasible production cars. It all depends on a million different things. I can't wait to see what the concept is going to look like, if past concpet cars from MB are any indication I don't think I'll be let down!

    If I say "how", I can shut down this web site.
    More infos on the CLE/CLS as soon as more details are available from DC. One thing seems for sure: there will be a AMG version.

    It doesn't matter now, V8 kompressor transplanted into ANYTHING, makes that car sing, pretty darn loud in fact.

    Re: Whats going on with the CLE/CLS

    I truly do believe that the wheels screw(for the lack of a better word) up the rest of the car! I really didnt like it at first, but I absolutely love it now! However I do believe that Benz can make some small changes to make the car look better; PAINT THE DOOR HANDLES!
