Mercedes-Benz‘s latest and greatest isn’t even out on the market yet and famed Benz-tuner Carlsson has already released renderings of what its tuning package for the styling sedan will look like. Promising to debut the CLS at the Geneva Auto Show in March, Carlsson looks to enhance the exterior and performance of the four-door coupe.

On the outside, the CLS will receive a standard treatment with an all new front bumper, a carbon fiber lip, stainless steel grille inserts, LED fog lamps, new side skirts with built-in air inlets and a new rear diffuser.

For performance, Carlsson has released specs for the CLS350 CGI, taking horsepower to 333-hp and torque to 302 ft-lbs from the factory 306-hp and 273 ft-lbs. For the CLS350 CDI, horsepower will reach 320-hp from the factory 265-hp while torque jumps from 479 ft-lbs to 575!

And as with all available Carlsson tuning packages, you’ll be able to outfit it with a variety of 19- or 20-inch wheels depending on your taste. No pricing has been announced.
