Mercedes CLK

The new Merc CLK will be bigger, yet more elegant, than the outgoing model

Here’s prove Mercedes is hard working on the next generation CLK. Yet bigger and yet a bit more elegant than the outgoing model, the new CLK (and CLK convertible)  will be based on the C-Class saloon. It goes without saying, however, that refinement will be done to the chassis to meet expectations of the somewhat more ambitious coupé-drivers. Visible for the first times in these exclusive shots is the new shape of the headlights which are somewhat closer to the new E-Class than to the current C. Engines, on the other hand, will come from the C-class line-up and will include a V8 for a CLK 500. We expect the car to arrive at the dealers in summer 2009 with the soft-top following just a few months later.
