2011 Mercedes-Benz CLS is going to be unveiled at the Paris Motor Show in October this year, but a team of spy photographers managed to take some pictures of completely undisguised CLS.

The old CLS is one of the most strange and interesting cars on the market. It looks like UFO with its enormous body featuring 4 unframed doors. The new one retains the swooping roofline of the pioneering original, but Mercedes added on the rubbing strips, window trim and bootlid. Of course, the LED running lights present in the new version.

2011 Mercedes-Benz CLS will be powered by the new twin-turbo 4.7 litre V8 developing 429bhp and 700Nm of torque. The power improvement of 12 per cent and the torque rised with 32 per cent compared to the outgoing CLS 500. The fuel economy is also improved by 22 per cent to 30mpg.

Further information will be available later this year.
