German customizer ASMA-Design has released a very unusual bodykit for the Mercedes CLS. The kit features much of the same styling as the standard CLS Shark, including side vents, rear apron, and side skirts. But what sets the CLS Shark II apart from its predecessor is its ridiculously large grille, while we feel is somewhat reminiscent of the Maybach Excelero. A giant grille may work on the Excelero -- it may even work on Audi's lineup -- but we don't think it works quite as well here. The shape of the grille seems a bit too angular for a swooping design like the CLS. However, pictures can be deceiving, and it may look better in person. One thing's for certain: this bodykit will certainly get you noticed, if your stock CLS doesn't accomplish that job.
