Fast cars and beautiful women have always been a successful mix and Mercedes-Benz is taking advantage of this proven combination in having model Karolina Kurkova endorse the 2011 CLS Coupe.
Two six-cylinder models are initially available, the CLS 350 CDI with
265 horsepower, priced at around $88,000 and the CLS 350, priced at
around $90,000 with an engine giving 306 hp. This model includes as
standard the ECO start/stop function. Mercedes-Benz states that all of
the CLS engines are new and have up to 25% improved fuel consumption as
compared to the previous models. This improvement was helped by the use
of an electromechanical Direct-Steer system.
Karolina, a Victoria’s Secret angel, stated that the Mercedes-Benz
CLS is “a beautifully smooth and luxurious car that immediately appealed
to me. It has these fascinating contours that I wanted to convey with
my body language during the shooting. I can imagine myself behind the
wheel of the Mercedes-Benz CLS. It fits my style. Since I recently got
my driving license, I need to gain more experience driving. And I’m sure
that would be great fun with the new CLS.”
A choice of five interior colours, five trim variants and three
leather types are available to buyers of the new Mercedes-Benz CLS.
