So 4 CLS prototypes and 3 have the same headlight cluster while one uses slightly different cluster, perhaps this is a trim option?

second and fourth cars in line are likely higher spec models with LED headlights.

Not much new but a few more photos. Apparently the "full" CLS AMG will be replaced by the AMG sedan (I can't remember what they were thinking of calling it). No surprises here, but I'm glad this looks more like the first-gen CLS.

really don't understand why they need two 4-door coupes based on the same platform and likely similar in size. almost seems like people might have it wrong that there is in fact an AMG 4 door coupe, and its not just the new CLS. they should also just combine the SL and AMG-GT into one model.

i wish they were wrong, but body is different (even thought the interior for the AMG GT appears to be shared with both the E-Class and the CLS...again why so redundant?)

maybe just a less subtle AMG body kit showing under the camo...greenhouses look close enough... or i'm just seeing what i want to see....

LOL that's a standard practice for many years(at least in Europe) - some standard/base elements in German premiums are so horrible looking that you get an impression it's so ugly on purpose to force you into getting expensive options.

Teaser image + additional information. Not really sure what they mean by the car sharing S-Class electronics.... Do the digital displays in the E-Class differ from what's available in the S-Class?
