2009 Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class Grand Edition news, pictures, and information
Coupés are truly special cars. Not least the Mercedes Coupés, which have always epitomised automotive elegance, exclusivity and refinement at the very highest level. With the CLS, Mercedes-Benz paved the way for four-door coupés. The trend-setting model from Stuttgartinspires coupé enthusiasts wîth its exciting and muscular styling.
Even more pronounced lines through new paint
The new Mercedes-Benz CLSGrand Edition catches the eye straight away. A unique 'designo magno platinum' matt paint finish brings the lines and contours of the premium Coupé fully to the fore and emphasises its multi-award-winning design. As well as being an eye-catching feature, the matt paint finish is highly scratch- and dirt-resistant. In keeping wîth the avant-garde paintwork, the radiator grille louvres are also painted in 'designo magno platinum'.
The Grand Edition customers can select from a choice of metallic paint finishes: obsidian black, iridium silver, carneol red or flint grey.
The additional exterior equipment for the CLSGrand Edition includes:
-- Bi-xenon headlamps wîth dark headlamp casings, active light function and cornering light function in the fog lamps, headlamp cleaning system, and dynamic headlamp range adjustment
-- Exclusive, high-sheen AMG18-inch 5-spoke light-alloy wheels wîth pockets painted in titanium grey, shod wîth 245/40 R 18 (front) and 275/35 R 18 (rear) tyres
-- A 'Grand Edition' insignia on the front wings
designo interior displaying sporty, elegant touches
The no-nonsense elegance continues inside the car. Here a perfectly matched designo interior and a roof lining in anthracite Alcantara, together wîth the standard-fit tilting/sliding glass roof, define the sporty, elegant style. Special touches are provided by the designo leather upholstery in 'marron' – wîth the option of substituting this shade for sand, black, mystic red, porcelain or chablis.
The trim elements in high-quality laurel wood can be ordered wîth either a matt or a high-gloss finish. The same material is used for the selector lever and the wood/leather §teering wheel. Sport pedals in brushed stainless steel wîth rubber studs underline the sporting credentials of the CLSGrand Edition.
