AS a piece of automotive things really don’t get better than this. CLS is a saloon masquerading as a coupe. or is a coupe masquerading as a saloon?

way, it’s a stunning car more importantly, one which stands out. In the middle are conventional doors, albeit coupe-like shallow glass and a dramatically curved roofline.

But at the back where things get interesting. The rear slopes from the roofline into an boot area, while at the are a pair of aggressive-looking headlights shroud the traditional Mercedes-Benz and its centrally-mounted three-pointed star.

It’s a major move from the current family and it presents executives with a new if they want to add some to their next set of company

For businessmen right at the top of the corporate there are two V8 models – the CLS500 and 55 but for those who are still on the climb the tested here has all the style of its brothers but with less and some less gut-wrenching

At a smidgen over £43,000 the entry-level CLS has pretty much bit of kit you could possibly want, leather seats are a noticeable – and a £1,100 option.

Power from a 272bhp 3.5-litre V6 coupled to 7G-Tronic, the world’s seven-speed automatic gearbox.

The CLS feel as quick as its on-paper claims, with the V6 really plenty of revs to get it going. But cruising speed is reached the CLS character as it settles into a gait to cover miles stylish ease.

This is a car you want to be seen in, so it no sense to drive too quickly. like a shark stalking its it’s best to approach cars on motorways in a stealthy let them take in the design (the way the front arc of the wheel extends into a swage which runs all the way to the rear is my favourite) as you cruise past and disappear.

No car I’ve driven in months has received quite as quizzical glances from road users, so the CLS is certainly a car you feel special driving.

As as you love attention, this car is for you – shy need not apply.

And there going to be that many on the either. Mercedes-Benz plans to just 2,500 this and 4,000 in 2006, with 20% going to fleets (although not including purchases made by directors with their own Of that figure, 65% will be the 350 with the 500 taking 30%.

With a price tag nearly lower than the CLS500, the 350 makes sense, particularly as it has its bigger brother has, the extra performance.

But this car is all looks, and in this respect the is hard to beat.
