Preview: 2012 Mercedes-Benz CLS by Brabus

Article by Christian A., on February 7, 2011

Many of you folks consider Brabus one of the best tuners specialized in Mercedes-Benz vehicles, right? All of us are eager to find out how the upcoming 2012 Mercedes-Benz CLS by Brabus will look like, and in order to make an idea, the German tuner revealed the first photos with its upcoming project.

As you can see, the new 2012 Mercedes-Benz CLS comes with a brand new set of 20-inch Brabus wheels, which make the car look way better.

We have to admin that the entire design line is changed by these new wheels but we do want to see also a new body kit developed by Brabus, which will probably be unveiled in March at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show.

Brabus didn’t announce any details regarding the engine modifications, which means that you will have to choose the 2012 Mercedes-Benz CLS 63 AMG if you want some power.

For those who don’t know, the CLS 63 AMG is powered by the all-new 5.5-liter V8 biturbo engine delivering 518 hp and 516 lb-ft of torque, which can push it from 0 to (96 km/h) in just 4.4 seconds and to a top speed limited to 155 mph or 250 km/h.

With its long bonnet, frameless side windows and a dynamic roof that sweeps at an angle biased towards the rear, the second-generation Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class is definitely a stylish attention-grabber. One of its unique features is found on the front end, which has similarities with the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG.

It is provided with a radiator grille that is not visually integrated into the bonnet, as it is formed separately to highlight the long, sporty bonnet of the Mercedes CLS. This grille comes with a large central star that strongly emphasizes the link of the CLS to the other Mercedes coupés while strengthening its brand identity.

Moreover, the front end of the CLS features large elongated dark air inlets with black grilles as well as LED High Performance headlamps. These headlamps are the first of its kind in the world to employ LED technology for all regular dynamic light functions.

They form into three arrow-shaped layers from top to bottom. Sitting at the top layer is a LED indicator, with stunning LED side lights offering a low beam functionality. Moreover, the LED side light is also visible when the dipped beam function is switched on, giving the CLS a unique stylish look with its separate night-time design.

Sitting on the lower layer are the main beam and nightview functions. In total, the headlamps are made of 71 LED lights that do not only give the CLS its distinctive look but also allow the driver to have a better view of the road ahead.
