This is the very first time the replacement for the CL-Class has been photographed out in the open. The model is to be known as the S-Class Coupe, filling a niche much like the C- and E-Class two-door models.

Front end styling looks slightly different to the S-Class. The headlights look a bit surprised, like slimmer versions of the ones on the SL, which isn't necessarily a bad thing.

Engine-wise, we should still see the twin-turbo V8 and V12 units seen on current Mercs. The Germans are also working on a twin-turbo 3-liter V6 for the C400 which could fit very well into the range.

The new S-Class could debut as early as April's Shanghai Auto Show, though this coupe should arrive towards the end of the year or even later.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
