Default Mercedes E Class Coupe Caught Almost Undisguised

Quote:
Caught by WCF reader "Nikolaus", these are the best shots yet of the new 2010 Mercedes E Class Coupe with nearly all its camouflage removed.

A rear diffuser and what seems to be a taped up AMG logo on the boot hood suggest this prototype could be the E63 AMG Coupe. But Mercedes' models from the AMG division all feature a quad exhaust layout whereas this prototype has the rectanglular twin exhausts mimicking the style seen on the recent leaked official photos of the regular E Class Sedan. The front end sports a grille featuring two horizontal bars, a style which differentiates this variant from the sedan and estate variants of the new E-Class line-up.

The engine range is likely to be shared with the rest of the E class range. That includes a 3.5 liter V6, a 5.4 liter V8 and an uprated 6.2 liter AMG V8. Diesels will likely also be on offer for the cabriolet, given how quiet they've become in recent years. Mercedes new generation of cleaner diesels expected in the cabriolet are: the 200, 220, 250 and 300 CDI, as well as the 350 BlueTec at the top of the range.
The E-Class Coupe will debut at the 2009 Geneva Motor Show alongside the sedan variant, the cabrio and AMG versions will follow later in the year in Frankfurt.

clk = e class coupe now.
look up one of the older news threads, where MB announces they're getting rid of the CLK and the SLK NAMES in favor of e class coupe and c class coupe. (i'm sure one of these details are wrong, but thats the gist of it).

and the taillights really resemble the lexus ES sedan in shape.

Actually, CLK = c-class platform with e-class style. E class coupe = e-class platform and looks. People always seem to get confused.

I actually think it looks better than I expected... I am not a big fan of M-B's latest styling direction, but I think this is one of their nicest variants.

I tried briefly to sell MB's and just couldn't do it. After years of selling Subaru, Acura, Toyota it was impossible for me to sell a $70k or $110k car that had crooked tailpipes or a power trunk that won't close right the first time, or a misaligned hood. Sorry, they feel like tanks and even a C300 (that's woefully underpowered in today's market) feels great to drive but there is NO value.
