Those are pics of the concept, but anyways, they do give an idea what the car looks like.
btw is your dad's friend contemplating a CLS500 or a CLS55 AMG?

I'm guessing Merc will price the CLS around 70 lakhs if and when they launch it here.

The CLS is going to come to Mumbai in April. It is bought by one of the top builders of Mumbai. Its going to be the CLS500. 7 G-tronic speed box. Custom interiors and can be customized upto the leather design and wood design with the different colors. Wheels go upto 19 inch and the interiors have an option to be designed by Armani. The car also has an option for Distronic as well as Run flat tyres. Car has everything you can think of. But at a price. Base price of the car is 85 lacs ex for the CLS 350. The V8 CLS 500 is another 10 lacs more plus depends on what all you ad to the car.. Beauty of a car..

I asked my friend in UK to check the price (Just to see if I can afford it after selling off all my assets ) ... He says it costs around Rs 37 lakhs there for the base version. I am really surprised that it costs 80 odd lakhs here in India !!
