With a sharpened design, the modernised CLS will arrive in European dealerships in August 2021. The front end in particular, with new radiator grilles and bumpers, expresses the dynamism of the four-door coupé even more strongly. At the same time, the interior has been upgraded with additional leather and trim combinations as well as a new-generation steering wheel. A latest-generation diesel with integrated starter-generator expands the model range. A strictly limited special model of the Mercedes-AMG CLS 53 4MATIC+ (combined fuel consumption 9.0-8.7 l/100 km; combined CO2 emissions 206-199 g/km) forms the sportily exclusive spearhead. Thanks to a comprehensive update last summer, with upgrades to the driving assistance systems, the MBUX (Mercedes-Benz User Experience) multimedia system and ENERGIZING Comfort, the CLS was already up-to-date technologically.
The new Mercedes-AMG GT Black Series - Orange as an exclusive contrast color
"The proximity to the AMG GT3 and AMG GT4 racing cars is visually and technically stronger than ever before. This already begins with the new, significantly larger cooling air intake, which comes directly from the AMG GT3 racing car. The radiator grille bears vertical struts in dark chrome. Because the wheel arch radiators now also have direct airflow via the central inlet, the two additional external air inlets in the front apron have been eliminated. Here, sickle-shaped flics optimize the air flow, which not only increases downforce on the front axle but also improves brake cooling. The air curtains direct the airflow specifically in the direction of the wheels. Together with the flics in front of the wheels, the drag coefficient was reduced and the downforce increased. The new design language thus combines maximum cooling air efficiency at the front with lower drag and increased downforce. The interior concept emphasises the top position of the AMG GT Black Series: Exclusive nappa leather is combined with sporty DINAMICA microfibre in black and orange contrasting stitching. The instrument panel and the redesigned lightweight door panels, which are now fitted with pull-straps instead of handles, are covered with black DINAMICA microfibre. Further orange contrasting decorative seams, matt black carbon trim elements and the Night Package interior also set striking accents. The AMG bucket seats made of carbon (not available for the USA, Canada and China) combine low weight with optimum lateral support. In the USA, Canada and China, the Black Series comes with AMG performance seats as standard. The interior is also optionally available with contrasting seams in grey. "

The turbocharged three-litre flat-six in the new 911 GTS delivers 353 kW (480 PS). Maximum torque is 570 Nm, an increase of 20 Nm over its predecessor. Zero to 100 km/h takes just 3.3 seconds (911 Carrera 4 GTS: Fuel consumption combined (NEDC) 10.5 – 9.7 l/100 km, Fuel consumption combined (WLTP) 11.4 – 10.6 l/100 km, CO₂ emissions combined (NEDC) 240 – 222 g/km, CO₂ emissions combined (WLTP) 259 – 240 g/km) in the 911 Carrera 4 GTS Coupé with the eight-speed Porsche dual-clutch transmission (PDK): three tenths faster than its predecessor. A seven-speed manual transmission with a particularly short throw is available for all 911 GTS models as an alternative to the PDK.
