One might think that with the launch of the 2014 Mercedes S Class, the German car maker can rest for sometime before working on its refresh. However, the S Class as announced by Mercedes will not be a 'single' car, but a range of cars of various body dimensions and shapes.

New S Class will spawn a series of cars such as the Coupé, Pullman and an AMG.

These would include a Rolls Royce Ghost rivaling 'Pullman', a sportscar rivaling AMG variant and not to forget a coupé and a cabriolet. Mercedes already sell a coupé version of the W221 S Class called the CL Class.

Recently, German auto magazine Auto Motor Und Sport has snapped a test mule of the 2014 S-Class-based CL Class. Spies have also managed to get an interior shot of the car. From what we see, the interiors look a lot similar to the new S Class. The steering is a three-spoke unit signifying the sporty intentions of the CL.

Current CL Class is based on the W221 S Class.

Mercedes will likely retain the 'CL' name. Auto Motor Und Sport says that the key fob of the test car read 'CL 217' hence strengthening their hypothesis.

A 4.7-liter V8 producing 455bhp is expected to start the new CL Class lineup while a more powerful Bi-Turbo V12 could also be added later on.

The 2015 Mercedes CL Class is expected to be shown in a concept form at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show in September.
