New AMG S-Class Coupe will come with a more aggressive-looking front end than the standard version

Mercedes is working on a new CL which will be more appropriately named the S-Class Coupe when the new model is released.

These are some spy shots of the AMG version of the S-Class coupe looking mean is light-camouflaged black.

New features will include LED daytime headlights and, possibly, LED tail lamps too. A newly designed front bumper is also hinted in these photos and will sport a more aggressive look in this AMG version than on the standard S-Class coupe. The grill isn't as slanted as on the current CL and will now come split with a single chrome bar across it, giving more prominence to the Mercedes badge sitting in the middle.

AMG is also promising more power and less consumption from its new slew of engines. Doing so by focusing on better engine management as well as reducing consumption by lightening the weight of the car through the greater use of composite materials.

See related links for more details on that. Enjoy the pics.

I like the current design of it, I think that the grill is to big and I hope that they update some of the tech in the car becuse it is abit old and dated. S-Class coupe desingishes the car from the rest of the range and says that it is the top of the range but i like CL coupe more... (Even though I always need to think which MB is which)

I am loving the new designations S Class and E Class Coupe...all that CL, CLC, CLS, CLK is all a bit too much....I just wish MB would stick with one them for the interiors (dash design) there are too many gimmicky and fussy options, have you seen the instruments of a new E Class Avant Guarde? It's all flash hooded anstruments, blinding colours etc etc...they should really have a look at what BMW are doing...choose a direction and run wiht it...New 7 series is a case in point, a smooth one hooded dash...clean and simple dials, likewise the controls...

Uh, actually, yeah, all of the names for mercedes DO mean things. They're acronyms for words in German... They obviously don't just pick random letters and slap them on cars... especially ones of this caliber. I love the names that German cars receive. As soon as a Mercedes receives a name that is also a noun, I'm going to vomit, and loose all respect for them.

Mercedes needs to make up their mind on grille treatment. They change the design slightly every year. This is getting a little ridiculous. I'm all for "S-class coupe" though. With their interior's throwing back to the eighties now, a modern interpretation of the old SEC should be just as entertaining.

I like the new naming of the Mercs, what sense does "CL" or "CLK" make? Do they even mean anything thing? ANYWEIGHS, Im upset because acording to these pictures, they didnt fix one of the only things I ddint like about the CL, the tail lamps.

Forget facelift, this is a "namelift". Honestly, the last thing the CL needs is a facelift and a namechange! CL was working fine!
