The recently revealed 2014 Mercedes-Benz S-Class will have more versions than ever, with a coupe and convertible to be added to the lineup in 2014. While it has been widely believed that the two-door model will be called the S-Class Coupe, the big luxury coupe may keep its CL name after all, just like its previous generations.
This assumption is based on a set of spy photos published by German magazine Auto Motor und Sport where a tag linked to a prototype’s keys shows the name CL 127, with 127 being the internal code for the new CL.
As usual, the new CL (or S-Class Coupe if you like that name better) will get all the top technology from the four-door sedan, including the most powerful engines, while displaying a sportier style – as spy photos show.
Expect CL 500 V8 and CL 600 V12 versions, and possibly a V6 twin-turbo CL 400 – the first time the CL will get a V6 engine. AMG versions are expected to include the CL 63 and CL 65. Diesel fans will have to settle for an E-Class Coupe, as the CL will most likely not feature an oil-burner.
