With spy shots of the new Mercedes CL-Class coupe having been circulating the net for long-on eight months or so, isn't it time someone put stylus to tablet and spec'd out what the new generation will look like in the flesh? Well, someone did. World Car Fans offers up some a few shots that have been Lehmannized for your protection, as well as additional spy photos of the AMG model in cold weather testing. They show a silky coupe with strong visual ties to Merc's Maybach sedans. The new CL will be offered with a range of powerplants from a 3.7-liter to 4.0-liter V12 (diesels for the Euro folks). The top AMG model will of course get the company's newest 6.3-liter V8. Expect the base models to show up at year's end, with the AMG version coming in '07. [Thanks to Sebastian for the tip.]
