I don't think it's too big or sedan-like, aren't these meant for the people that would buy a comfortable and classy S sedan but want something a bit more exotic, not for those that visit all trackdays closeby.
It's for people who like this but would like something a bit more modern...

Sign me up! I want one, specifically a silver CL600.

Yes, it looks sedan-like, but in my mind that's the whole point of the CL. There aren't really any other full-size personal luxury coupes left (that is, very large, two-door sedans, like those that were so popular in America in the 70's). There's a certain romance to that body style, and a definite street presence. Of course, there's also almost no market for them anymore, but what market there is Mercedes has cornered.

You want a full-size sports coupe? Get an SL and leave the top up .

I don't really like thoose back lights, too much slk for me, they should have kept a backlight design more like the S class.

As for the rest, it's another boat.

It's not that the grille is too big - it's the headlights. they're tiny in comparison!

It's too busy - the previous design was smooth and elegant because it was restraint, this is just all sculpture and shifts in direction.

And the rear lights look grafted on.

White, it appears, does not suit all cars, give it a darker colour and I'd be all over it

Is Chris Bangle working after hours for MB? When you look the front from the side it looks like it came from a 5 series... and also a little ugly stick all around.

I have to say that Bangle's creations do look much better in real life than in photos.

I think the point that he was trying to make is that the previous S and CL Classes had more-or-less the same rear ends, just like the new S and CL...

I don't think it's ugly but I think I need some time to get used to it.
