Mercedes-Benz updates its flagship CL coupe by shaving 500 pounds and giving it a new active suspension system called Active Body Control. It shares styling cues and underpinnings with the next S-class sedan - both will go on sale in the 2000 model year - but has quad headlamps resembling those on the less expensive E class. The CL initially will be offered with a 302-hp 5.0 liter V-8.
BIG BENZ COUPE IS LIGHTER, TIGHTER
