Default Oh My GOD!! How could they ruin the new GEN CL-Klass

These pics are from worldcarfans.com, they prety much represent what the new CL would look like..and i have to say its bad..after seeing the new S, i couldnt believe they actually made a design as sexy as W220 even better, that gave me hope for the best looking affordable luxory coupe in the world..the CL class and after seeing these pictures i am quite shocked..this is quite bad...

Reminds me of the old Lexus SC430. Yuck. Totally ruined a wonderfully graceful design.

6 looks much sweeter than this crap...

oh well what can you do...i much rather have the XKR when it comes out than this or even the AMV8 for the same money before i spend anything on this..now i am just praying that they dont spoil the SL, the new C is also out and that also doesnt look any good...but still that really doesnt concern me cuz I wouldnt ever wanna be in a C class...an accord over a C for me..

The overall looks aren't that bad actually. If they would refine the headlights a little bit then it would definitely change the whole look to being better. The rear is also not that bad actually. The only problem it does not look like a Mercedes....

Damn, what can i say the current CL still remains at the top of the MB stable for me. This one is crap, the side profile reminds of a Toyota Solora! Just hope this is a bad photoshoped image!

The current generation CL is one of the best looking Mercs ever made. This one certainly dosen't look great in pictures, but, I would like to see it in person before passing a judgement. In the past, I have found many Jaguars, Astons and even the CLS ugly looking in pictures. In reality, these are some of the most good looking cars in the world.
