CLS550 test mule route 80 East in NJ?

Was on my way to Chinatown to do some Dimsum at Jing Fong in NYC on saturday morning and saw this CLS550 with funky Michegan tags and lots of black tape hiding the rear. Think its hiding a tail light redesign?

Guy saw me and speed away a few times. Of course I followed I think my GF (dating for 3 months) finally knows the extent of my car "HOBBY"

This was on route 80 east in Parsippany and on 280 east.

uhm doesnt look like a test mule

1) very little of it is covered.... not much left to the imagination
2) It looks exactly like the current rear end of the CLS from what I can see.

....maybe the guy was having something done to it...like some weird tinted tails or something and they were masking certain areas off... the most important thing to find out is what the license plate said... if its a MANUFACTURER license plate or somethin like that....

I don't understand something.

Why would you call this car a test mule if it is in production and available to the public?

it's probably a mid-cycle facelift. I can post this thread on CLS section on MBworld if you want to find out...

I know its not a test mule...did not know what to call it. It does look like the same tail as what they offer now. just seemed strange and with the Michegan plates (white plate) always thought Michegan was blue. Plate had
1000 - XXX as a plate. Just seemed wierd.

Fzara....you have dirty blond hair?......seen a Monaco floating around once in awhile and thought maybe is u?

yea just looks like a refresh. we have the first year one 500, not 550, and the tail is definitely changed. it looks a bit longer too. hes probably driving it to MB in Montvale, or there is another headquarters in Parsipanny too.
