If an S550 and a CL550 had a child: The CS500

Those oil rich sheiks have nothing better to do but spend their fortune on exotic cars. That of course is not enough for some, which is where the tuning companies come in. MyCar is one of those tuning companies that will do anything for the right price, which is exactly what happened when a rich Saudi man wanted his S550 to look like a CL550. MyCar took the front of a CL550 and basically transplanted it on to the S550, creating a new offspring, the CS500. They definitely deserve props for a job well done.

As of now, the only evolutionary changes that we can spot is the front fascia. The lack of camo gives might be a hint that these vehicles are on their final test run for a mid-cycle refresh for 2009. Just as Rich stated, we might be moments away from an official word from Stuttgart, introducing both the S and CL face lifted 2009 model. Check out the entire gallery at Automotive Traveler
