Lightbulb Mercedes-Benz CLC to get Beastie introduction in LA?

Filed under: Concept Cars, New York Auto Show, Mercedes-Benz, Design/Style

We've been expecting for some time that Mercedes-Benz would choose to grace its New York Auto Show stand with a variant on its new A-Class family as part of a push to bring a new range of small cars to North America. However, it now seems more likely that Los Angeles audiences will get a vision of Mercedes' entry-level future, not New York. That's because Mercedes has officially confirmed that it will show something called the "Concept Style Coupe" at an art, music, film and food festival in LA curated by none other than Mike D of the Beastie Boys.

Transmission LA: AV Club, a "multi-disciplinary festival," runs from April 20 to May 6, and sponsor Mercedes promises an "artistic staging" of the concept car (expected to be a sedan), the production version of which is rumored to be dubbed CLC. The 17-day festival will be held at the Geffen Contemporary at LA's Museum of Contemporary Art.

All of which begs the question: With the New York Auto Show staged earlier (press days are April 4 and 5), what will Mercedes show in the Empire State? It's too significant of a market to the Three-Pointed Star to let the show pass without debuting something significant. See the complete press release below for more.Continue reading Mercedes-Benz CLC to get Beastie introduction in LA?
