While we all like more selection from car manufacturer, as we want to pick the right car for us, we sometimes have to question if a convertible is the right choice for a model. This of course is not the case here, as the CL would look amazing without the top. Over at AMuS, they report that Hans-Dieter Multhaupt, during the unveiling of the luxury Coupes in Palma de Mallorca (Spain, told them that convertible and diesel powered CL would be possible since the designers and technicians have taken the necessary steps to ensure an easy transition.
He goes on to saying, "We would be glad to put those cars on the wheels. Unfortunately, so far our market study did not determine yet sufficient interest from customer. If the demand is large enough, one wants to react fast."
The employment of a diesel engine would be technically just as problem-free, according to Multhaupt. "As soon as there is sufficient interest for it, we will introduce it."
