We’ve seen spy shots of the next-gen CLS a few weeks back, but here are some more. This time we not only get to see the back of the test mule, but also the front and side. Test engineers have actually covered it up so much that it’s almost impossible to recognize the CLS, nevertheless, the world-famous CLS form is there and clearly visible.
