Next Mercedes CLK
This is just an illustration, but it looks pretty realistic.
The CLK always looks pretty good whenever it comes out. But it always seems to look dated pretty quickly.
The current one looks nice, but nothing more. It is totally anonymous. At a starting price of over $45 000 before any options, it should stand out.
Based on the $30 000 C class, it is a big mark up for a car that doesn’t look that amazing…
A coupe should be more than a 2 door sedan.
But there isn’t much competition for it. The 3 series is cheaper, (and as anonymous), and I can’t think of any other luxury brand that offers a coupe at a similar price.
Lexus might be the 1st. They are soon coming up with a coupe version of the IS.
Where are the US brands? Cadillac and Lincoln. If Mercedes can make money with a boring looking expensive coupe, you would think someone out there could actually design a super attractive one that people would want…
