Mercedes-Benz CLS Gains Some Attitude from Prior Design

It turns out that, at least some of Mercedes-Benz’s CLS clientele want their rides to look more like they’re getting ready to go out for racing on the Nurburgring and less like they’re about to visit the opera – regardless of what holds true…

For those of you who belong to the first group, German styling specialist Prior Design has another package up its sleeve.

Depicted here on a CLS featuring a gunmetal matte foil wrap, the tuner’s Black Edition aero kit is made out of Dura-Flex FRP (Fiber Reinforced Plastic) and includes the following items: front bumper with a lip spoiler, side skirts, a rear bumper with a diffuser, front wheel arch extensions, trunk spoiler and hood vents.

The look can be completed with an optional set of concave alloy wheels, details of which, were not released from Prior Design.
