The silhouette of a coupé is usually characterized by two supporting posts between which the roof arch stretches. On the new CL, this distinctive feature is only one of several equally striking stylistic elements. Everything, in its lines, is an invitation to travel.
At first glance, the CL seems to merge with the road, ready to set off for a festival of new sensations.
The grille with its unique design combined with the redesigned hood, smaller fenders and larger headlamps with daytime running lights, position lights and LED indicator lights mark the very assertive style of the model and herald the CL’s technological advantages. A more accomplished, harmonious and sporty line are the main characteristics of the new coupé.
The Mercedes reference!
Mercedes-Benz is a brand owned by the Daimler AG group, which specializes in the production of luxury vehicles and is based in Stuttgart, Germany. Mercedes-Benz, Audi and BMW make up the “German Triad”, three brands that have contributed since their creation to forging the reputation of German automobiles for excellence.
The Mercedes-Benz story began in 1886 with the invention by Karl and Bertha Benz of the very first oil-powered car and the improvement of this invention in the same year by Gottlieb Daimler. However, it was only much later that the companies of these two pioneers in the automotive sector merged and in 1926 Daimler-Benz was founded. The Mercedes-Benz brand was born that same year, named after Mercedes Jellinek, daughter of a sports driver who was then working for Daimler.
From then on, the company’s reputation grew only by increasing, gaining year after year its prestigious brand stripes, guaranteeing almost infallible quality and durability on its vehicles. This reflects the brand slogan “Das Beste oder nichts” which means “The best if not nothing”. For the anecdote: Gottlieb Daimler and Karl Benz, the two founders of Mercedes-Benz and key figures in the history of the automobile never met!
It was after the Second World War that Mercedes confirmed its image as a prestigious brand. Since 1951, the marketing of the models of the star brand has been a great success and luxury is selling very well. Mercedes’ reputation was reinforced by the great sporting successes that gave it the nickname “silver arrow”!
