Form and Sculpture: A look at the evolving design of the 2012 Mercedes-Benz CLS

It began as a cryptic statuette bathed in blue and silver light at the Detroit auto show. It continued this spring at the China show with the reveal of the striking Shooting Break conception.

Now, it all comes jointly.

After months of teasing, the 2012 Mercedes-Benz CLS will debut at the Paris motor demonstrate this fall with crisper lines and creases that make for a sharper demeanor. This is the subsequently generation of the mold-shattering design that presented four doors in an elegant fashion and has since been emulate by luxury rivals BMW, Porsche, Jaguar and Audi.

The timeless proportions remain, but the car obviously has a sharper focus with impressive fresh design elements, including a prominent grille and a long hood that evoke the SLS AMG. The wheel arches are more smoothed, and the contoured doors say Shooting Break definitively. The car also features a plummeting line that begins above the front wheel arches and flows with a descending curve toward the back.
