Rendered: 2011 Mercedes-Benz S-Class Coupe

Follow Viknesh

We have already seen this with the new 2010 E-Class Coupe, which has replaced the CLK, and soon we will see the CL name phased out with the introduction of a facelifted model next year. The updated car will come in for the 2011 model year and go by the new name of S-Class Coupe.

The current C216 CL was first introduced at the end of 2006 but prototypes for the facelifted version had been spotted testing in Germany as early as August last year. Using information from the spy shots, this computer-generated rendering gives us a preview of what the final version will likely look like.

New details include a more upright grille highlighted with a single chrome bar, as well the new headlight design and LED accents.

Mercedes-Benz engineers are expected to make a major change to the CL’s powertrain lineup for the new S-Class Coupe, with a new family of ‘MoVe’ modular V-6 and V-8 engines with direct-injection and turbocharging technology set to replace the current V-8 and V-12 units.

There could also be a number of modifications to the exhaust filtering systems to help improve emissions, as well as the introduction of engine stop-start and direct-injection technologies.

  3. I was gonna say, that looks like the CL. It definitely needs a facelift, I liked the older one better. And for the love of god do something about that horrible interior. Nonetheless I've heard that this is one of the better cars in the MB lineup.

  4. "Mercedes Benz will rename the CL the S-Class Coupe just as it has done with the former CLK and new E-Class Coupe"

    The facelifted version of the CL will become the S-Class Coupe.

  5. Hmm, if they're gonna call it an S-class coupe, shouldn't it be facelifted to look more like the S-class sedan? This still looks more like the previous CL, which is no bad thing. I have a feeling they might revive the old names in a year or so just like Ford did with the Taurus, when no one wanted a "500".

    I agree my dad used to have a CL600 and it was so much better looking than the current, especially as weird as it sounds hte back window. It was so fast as well.

  7. The newest 2011 Benz S-Class Coupe was caught testing in Germany showing off it’s big butt curves and long legs. Is it sexy? Not certain, we will have to see this one get undressed to reveal the full fledge skin with no bra or panties.

  8. Major automakers spend a lot of time and energy developing product lines to fit every nook and cranny of their client base. Nowhere is that more evident than at Mercedes-Benz, where the nomenclature shell game is expected to transform the beloved CL into the new S-Class Coupe for the 2011 model year.

  9. This should help with those that don't know their cars particularly, Mercedes-Benz cars, very well. It can get confusing even with a car enthusiast like myself. C-Class, CLS-Class, CL-Class, and CLK-Class so you can C how tongue twisting that can get. Not that there's a problem with the CL-class but it may sound better to say check out my $120,000 S-Class coupe verses my $120,000 CL-Class. Peope that don't know their cars may get it confused with the baby C-class Benz...far away from the $120,000 mark

  10. Hi Guy's,
    the current 4-door is pretty sweet looking, imo…a giant “FU” car for sure…especially all back with tinted windows…there’s a guy who lives in my building with one, and he rents two spaces for it and parks diagonally

  11. Yes, Mercedes PLEEEAAASE do something about the interior. The current S class is the sweetest looking sedan out there, but then the interior is plain, empty and just drab. For one, please move the shifter to the center. After that, do not leave any damn space underneath the center console area. Go look at the BMW 7 series or the lexus LS or something. lastly, please do not get too radical with the design. When you look at the top of the line MB sedan, it should look like you wanna get in the back and have the chauffeur take you to the country club, not look like you wanna take it to the race track, although you can do that of course. I don't know how successful the CL was, but that was one weird looking car.
