Mercedes-Benz did not simply launch a new concept car at the International Motor Show (IAA) in Frankfurt in 2003 – this was a car that bridged the gap between two previously clearly separate body forms – coupé and saloon. The Vision CLS stands before its admirers, as fascinating now as it was 17 years ago. Back then, the developers put their dream of a four-door coupé into practice with this concept car. And from 2004, the Mercedes-Benz CLS Coupés of model series 219 went into production.
The consistency with which this concept car unites the persona of the two traditional lines – both stylistically and in terms of design – is matched by its clear interpretation of the idea of motoring luxury. This extends to such details as the interaction between light leather and oak in the interior.
