SPY:new photos depicting the 2009 CLK-Klasse

After a very long hault, in which we were practically flooded with a total bunch of spy shots with the forthcoming 2010 E-Klasse, we now get to see fresh photos with a CLK prototype that undergoes a rigurous testing programme. This time, it seems that the CLK test car has lost a bit of its camouflage, revealing some crucial details of the exterior design.

The coupe will opt again for twin headlights, as already known, that will have a more angular shape. The radiator grille will have 2 horizontal slats and a big Mercedes-Benz logo in the middle. It appears that it will also be somehow separated from the rest of the body with the help of a chromed line around it, as in the case of the C 63 AMG grille. Going backwards, the design of the coupe flows evenly, without being disturbed by weird and unnecessary artistic exercises a la Bangle, for example. The side mirrors will be borrowed from the SL-Klasse, while the tail lights will mimic those from the future E-Klasse. Expect to see the well-known Mercedes-Benz coupe elegance, with CL-Klasse influence, when you will admire the car from its sides. Auto journalists state that the next CLK-Klasse will arrive in showrooms in early 2009, with the cabrio version to be unveiled later in 2009. Let's see if the rumours that Mercedes-Benz will premiere the CLK at the 2008 edition of the Mondial de l'Automobile Paris are to become true.

N.B.:The last link directs to an article about the 2010 E-Klasse. The main reason for that is the information about the innovative systems to be found in the next generation E-Klasse, that will also be used for the 2009 CLK-Klasse.
