MEC Comes Out With Vader-like CLS 500

Despite the appearance of the new CLS, tuners still see the older generation CLS as an appealing platform to flaunt their designs and wares. Such is the case with MEC Design‘s rendition of the CLS 500, which is more of a styling exercise than a performance upgrade.
Starting with a mean-looking body kit that replaces the bumpers, side
skirts and adds a rear diffuser, a rear window spoiler and a 3-piece
trunk spoiler, MEC goes on to replace the OEM mufflers with stainless
steel units that give the rear of the car quad tailpipes resonating with
an aggressive burble.
The treatment at the front includes LED fog lights and DRLs, an
upgraded grill style and LED side mirror enhancements. Finishing off the
look is a matte black body, courtesy of a foil wrap. An electronic
suspension lowering module gives the CLS the exact stance it needs to
highlight its 20-inch mecxtreme III matte black wheels. For the
interior, MEC Design produced a carbon fiber-wrapped steering wheel and
floor mats to match the exterior styling cues.
