Cant tell much from here except that the roofline is still beautiful and it will have E-class rear lights.

As long as the taillights aren't too close to the E-Class's and it loses the banana line then it's gonna be sexy. I can already see that it looks wider and judging from the C-pillar it could be more dramatic.

Hold out for the BRZ STI or... Rocket Bunny FRS. Update: Scratch that. I've got a 2015 5.0/6MT with my name on it.

Interesting to see that they've backed off that high beltline.

By the looks of it, it has a similar tail like the new E class and it will definitely look good on the next or the updated CLS.
And like Bimmer said, it shouldn't lose that 'banana roofline' or else it will lose all it's mojo of being a 4 door coupe

I think that's camouflage....production lights won't look like that
