Ah great!

Was just reading about this car on some auto forum yesterday, and today someone's gone ahead and posted the pic on TBHP!

Ok, before all merc fans (includes me) get crazy about a new, unheard of model - lemme assure you it is no such thing. As far as I remember, its merely some Saudi Arabian tuner who modified the front end of a stock S500 and made it look like a CL. All he had to do then was tack on the "C" before the S500 badge!

Good quality of conversion though. Immaculate fit n finish.

That's exactly what i thought it would be.because other that the front which is of the CL class the rest of the car is completely a S class.

You ruined the party ! I was trying to position this as a new SCOOP

Nonetheless, it is probably the neatest conversion I have come across. Best of both worlds.

Hehehe! Henceforth, PM nosy parkers like me before posting new scoops.

Seriously a good conversion job though. Even Merc itself would be proud of the quality of finish.

I just wish the customizer had gone ahead and plonked the CL63 AMG Black Edition's engine in it as well!

Quite right.Having gone so far, the AMG kit would have been worth it.

Very neat. Thought Sahil saw this in India as there's a Verna next to it.

thats seriously a neat conversion although the badge at the end is a bit of give away as c and s are not aligned.
