Based on the gorgeous new C-Class, the new CLK is not only bigger but also appears far more elegant than the outgoing model. The model pictured is the CLK500.
Little is known about the new CLK but we imagine a great deal of chassis rigidity testing is taking place to meet Mercs' expectations. However there is no reason to expect surprises in the engine lineup with powerplants being sourced from the C-Class.
Sources say the CLK is still a good 2 years away from the European market so Australian deliveries should start late 2009.
