Click the image above for more pics of MyCar's CS500

Saudi tuner shops get different requests than the mod-masters in the US. While we may ask for bodyside moldings and a little something under the hood, the Saudis are just as likely to electroplate a precious metal onto their luxury rides. Since luxury vehicles seem to grow on trees in the world's oil capitol, tuner MyCar is challenged with differentiating these high-end vehicles to make them stand out in a crowd.

This time, MyCar went as far as creating an all new Mercedes, the CS500. It's basically a gold S550 with the front end of a CL550, but MyCar thought it unique enough to give it its own name; the CS500. As you can see from the photo above, the CS500 looks good enough to trick the untrained eye into believing it's an all-new vehicle. Actually, the CL550 front end actually makes the S550 look a bit more stylish, if you ask us. Maybe someone in Stuttgart should take note. Thanks for the tip, Hisham!

      It's a very impressive conversion and looks better than the original sedan, but the CL front-end is a bit too "soft" compared to the rest of the body. It needs to have slightly more edge in its lines and it'd work.

      The S550 designation is used only in North America. In the rest of the world the car with the same engine is called S500. The same goes for other models using the 5.5l engine.

      I think the S frontend makes you look like a boss. the CL frontend makes you look like a playboy.

      This is the best looking Mercedes sedan on the road today.

      I'd be more concerned about swapping out the S-Class' hideous rump before worrying about the front

      Any pictures of th CL with the S front end... The L555?
      • 5 Years Ago
      I actually like that. Put a traditional MB grille and hood ornament on and that's what the 2010 S SHOULD look like.

        I thought the CLS was technically a combination of the best of the CL and S. (though not as big)
      • 5 Years Ago
      Not to get all technical and what not, but it's not really *both* cars, it's more like half of each (well significantly more of the S, but we'll say half for simplicity's sake) So, by my calculations:

      (S550 + CL550)/2 = CS550

      or for non NA

      (S500 + CL500)/2 = CS500

      darn, i got so excited when i saw this picture thinking it could be the next s-class. it looks so much better than the front end on the current one

      This could be the first Saudi aftermarket job that I actually like! Nice!

      Saudi Arabia...the land of Ferrari Sedans, Jaguar Shooting Brakes, and this fright pig. The S nose has graceful arches that match the rear...this looks like two different people designed it...because they did.

      Looks like high-quality work. The CL's nose make as good a match (or better) for the rest of the bodywork as the standard S front end.
