Mercedes-Benz CLS 2011-2012 spotted in Dubai

Mercedes-Benz CLS 2011-2012 spotted in Dubai

One of our readers, Nabeal Malik, spotted this 2011-2012 Mercedes-Benz CLS prototype filling up at a petrol station in Dubai. The next-generation CLS-Class has been spotted in Dubai before, undergoing hot-weather testing, but this time, it has distinctly less camouflage than before, as the final body styling has already been finalised.

German tuner Lorinser has already released sketches of what their tuner version will look like, presumably adapted from insider images of the real CLS.

Another of our readers, Kamran, also caught the CLS prototype near a shipping yard in Dubai again, apparently after a frontal smash.

Indeed, the front remains a mystery.

What do you think?



  1. I saw the same car 3 times in karama itself! It was a filipino guy who was driving.. I tried to stop him and ask him more bout the car.. but was unable to 🙁 Nice looking car anyways 😀

  5. im planning to buy cls350amg and it looks fantastic if u wanna see the picture go to and cls350amg expected price is 360000dhs and the car will we avalible from november

  6. The other day I saw the new mildly-camouflaged CLS near my work place which suggested the testing didn’t go as planned. The rear was OK, looking great as in the petrol pump picture above. But the front had apparently been rammed into a wall! Was probably being shipped back as it was within the airport facility. Anyone interested to see the pic?

    ^You probably saw the Infiniti QX56. Armada’s been cancelled.

  17. Some weeks ago I had a chance to check out the CLS 2011 test vehicle upfront. The test driver demonstrated some really neat features on the vehicle such as auto park assist, ie. you switch on the assist function, drive past the parallel parking space (in between of two vehicles which the CLS sensors will automatically pick up) brake and let go of the steering, accelerator and brake pedals. The CLS automatically reverses, maneuvers and slots itself in between the space available. He did show me some new additions such as the revised headlights which are now complete LED including low and high beams. The interior trim was simply gorgeous.
