Mercedes-Benz Looking To Match Bentley Continental


The Mercedes-Benz S-Class has been targeting the Bentley Continental for a while and plans are to rival the Continental with a brand new CLS. The CLS would offer a much sportier build than the sedan and come equipped with lots of AMG tuning. Mercedes-Benz will most likely have a tuned-up version of the CLS63 AMG's 6.2-liter V8 with 507hp or the 5.5-liter V8 producing 536 hp, which would give Bentley's 567hp a good fight.

At the same time, Mercedes-Benz plans to increase its brand in the large global market for high performance sports cars. They are currently focusing on the Russian and Middle Eastern markets specifically. If the CLS can get the OK, it could really put the pressure on Bentley. Not to be easily ignored, Bentley will have their solution to the CLS. One thing is for sure, it will certainly be interesting to see what tricks Bentley has up their turbocharged sleeves.
