Without any doubt one of the most beautiful four-door coupes in the world, the CLS is now in its second generation which was facelifted about a year ago and will live on until 2017 when an all-new model will be introduced and could possibly have something in common with the attached speculative renders. RM Design went for an “upside down” grille as seen in the track-only AMG GT3 and will also be found on the SL facelift.

The sloped roofline is perhaps even more dramatic than on the current CLS and makes the stylish German coupe look even sleeker while the rear end seems to blend design cues from the S-Class Coupe and the AMG GT. Overall, it’s a very nice styling exercise and most likely not a lot of people would mind if the third-gen CLS will actually look like this.

It will be interesting to see whether the CLS will keep its name or whether it will be sold as the CLE to reflect its similarity in size with the next generation E-Class upon which it will be based. If Mercedes-Benz will decide to keep the CLS name, it means the model will be bigger and more premium to show its connections to the flagship S-Class model.

There’s also the possibility Mercedes-Benz will soon have both CLE and CLS models to join the CLA which also takes the shape of a four-door coupe based on the A-Class. The new CLS isn’t expected to come out sooner than 2017 and could be offered with a new array of straight-six engines, including a 2.9-liter twin-turbodiesel as well as a quad turbo version of the same engine which would turn the CLS into the ultimate grand tourer. More details about the engines will be disclosed next year when the new E-Class (W213 generation) will be introduced.
