Our colleagues from parent-site Autoblog.it are currently in L.A. where Mercedes-Benz is about to unveil its new Concept Style Coupe during the ‘Transmission LA: AV Club” event at the Moca, the Museum of Contemporary Art of Los Angeles. However, our mates got the chance to attend an exclusive premiere of the model that Mercedes introduced to a selected number of people, and here are the pictures that they have taken there. These images allow us to better appreciate the model, that we presented yesterday with a few official pics and a video released by the German carmaker itself.
The Mercedes Concept Style Coupe is supposed to be an anticipation of the next Mercedes CLA, a new coupe model from the house of three pointed star that is expected to make its debut in 2013, and its styling looks indeed quite promising. Gorden Wagener, Head of Design at Mercedes-Benz, really did a great job with this new model as it features several interesting solutions in many areas: we just cannot wait to see how the production version of this car will look like.
Speaking of which, one of the most striking features of this Concept Style Coupe is the way its indicators work: they are integrated in the head- and tail-lamps layout, and when they get activated they actually move around to create a well-thought movement that emphasizes the intention of the driver. Besides, the head-lights use a particular LED technology that creates a sort of evil red light in the middle of them whenever the car is stalling. The car is equipped with a turbocharged 2.0-litre unit delivering 211 hp, which is coupled to a 7G-MDCT dual clutch automatic transmission and to the 4Matic all-wheel drive system.
