“Amy” Crash Video Demonstrates CLS Safety

Seeing is believing, so they say. And what better way to demonstrate the safety of Mercedes-Benz cars than to show a seemingly wrecked CLS that protected its occupants, including the family dog. Mercedes’ spot is called “Amy”, which is the name of the dog accompanying its owners when they crashed in their CLS last year. The voice over asks if Amy was lucky to walk away from the crash. And when you see the damage to the Mercedes, it’s certainly bad. But the voice says that luck had nothing to do with the survivors walking away. By implication, it’s the excellence of Mercedes’ engineering and safety features that allowed the… Continue Reading »

CLS Shooting Brake Caught At The Ring

Seen testing recently at the Nurburgring is the estate version of the groundbreaking CLS design that represented a fresh wave of thinking for Mercedes-Benz. Although it has been called a shooting brake, it strictly is not in the traditional form of the body style that was representative of the shape some decades back. At any rate, it does conform to the family shape of the CLS as evidenced by the latest set of pictures. By testing it at the Nurburgring, Mercedes is in fact previewing the model to the public. The carmaker would have known that the legions of photographers at the famous track would be sure to take pictures… Continue Reading »

CLS Shooting Brake Spied Testing

Looking very much like the renderings that made it all over the net last year, Mercedes-Benz’s CLS Shooting Brake as been caught testing in the wild. As shooting brakes go, Mercedes’ CLS is stretching the description out a bit, but Estate seems a bit too dated for the radical 4-door coupe that was met with much acclaim when it was introduced. At any rate, the appearance of CLS Shooting Brake bodes well for fans of the rakish design introduced by the CLS coupe. Since the CLS profile calls for a sloping back, Mercedes also seems to have followed that design imperative to the shooting brake variant. Although this does limit… Continue Reading »

Unfortunate CLS Gets Candy Paint Treatment

Found in one of the many corners of the internet is this CLS 550 owned by an American designer. There’s no word on the inspiration for creating this color scheme but it’s definitely not one that would be described as subdued.  The hood, roof and decklid are a bright yellow, the sides of the car are purple and the bumper and sills are red. Hmm, something that a person dabbling in Microsoft Paint might do, but not many would execute in real life. The wheels have not escaped this designer’s attention, and they have been painted in a yellow, purple and red color scheme that reminds us of McDonald’s colors…. Continue Reading »

CLS63 AMG Design Process Time-Lapsed On YouTube

We all know that Mercedes-Benzes are highly complex cars that are masterpieces from the minds of designers and engineers from the company’s tech centers. Unlike the sometimes overwhelming feeds on new models and spyshots that we get on a weekly basis, the design process is not as readily available. But now, a time-lapse video has hit YouTube, showing some elements of the design process, from the proverbial clean sheet of paper, to a digital rendering on a computer, which will become the basis for CAD/CAM processes that make up the steps in automobile production. As you will see, the video is a demonstration of the design process and not an… Continue Reading »

Exclusive: Spy-shots of the upcoming “baby” CLS

The Baby-CLS or BLS/CLC/CLA as some are calling it, was just a rumor back a few months ago when we first reported about it, but as we can see in these exclusive spy-shots, it seems that Mercedes-Benz is going ahead with it’s plan to create a smaller version of legendary CLS. It is rumored that the baby-CLS (some are even calling it the 4-door coupe version of the C-Class) will be built on the same architecture as the next-gen B-Class. Front-wheel drive will be available for the standard version, whereas the AMG version will get a all-wheel drive system. Not much is known about the drive system, but if rumors… Continue Reading »
