TTAC Photochop: New Mercedes CLK
This is not an extra-fresh topic, but, following our readers request, I'm presenting you with my impression of the "right around the corner" third-gen Mercedes-Benz CLK. As a model due for release in a year, the CLK will not make a significant departure from the current Mercedes line-up in terms of design. It will follow the angular flame-surfacing approach of the C-Class and of the recently rejuvenated SL. As we could see from spy photographs of test vehicles, the CLK/E pair will stick to the dual front lights theme, but subject them to the same fire and smoke line bending that's producing all the harsh angles these days. Some artists envisioned the next CLK with LED bumper lights shaped like a boomerang. I don't really dig into that. They don't look very good and they were also presumed to be used on the face-lifted SL. As we've seen, they weren't. And a good thing too.
