Default 2012 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe gets leaked





Quote:
Yes, stay up late enough on the Internet and you might just come across some interesting stuff. We stayed up late tonight and came across this – leaked images of the 2012 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe, way before its public debut at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show.

It was recently reported that the 2012 Mercedes-Benz C-Class AMG Black Series Coupe. Power will come from the new 5.5L twin-turbo V8 making 571-hp and 664 lb-ft of torque between 2,250 and 5,500 rpm.
We’ll have more details for you along with a bunch of high-res shots as soon as we get them. Stay tuned.

Horrid interior.


Looks like they copied BMW, which is a downgrade in my book.

Couldn't disagree more. That's just a bad pic. It looks like it's the same design as the 2012 C-class sedan interior, which is miles better than the previous iteration. There is a reason why MB did an unusual interior revamp with a mid-cycle face lift. The last interior sucked.

True, it's probably just the angle.


And you're right about the old vs. new C-class interior; as a whole it's much better than the old.

Can't you read. They are talking the leaked 2012 C-class coupe photos. That is a pic of a C350 and they were also saying an AMG black version will be made as well. The AMG black edition of course will look similar but with massive fenders and more aggressive bodywork.

at least this isn't the failure that was the old c-class coupe a gen or so back now that was an ugly abomination. There is certainly market for this but I think MB is going to market it like what BMW does is have the coupe be more expensive and they won't be able to build them fast enough for the demand. And no it does not matter that it does not drive that great.

I like it but would also like to see AMG's version. I also like how the rear headrests are integrated into the seats.

BTW I dont really like the current C class interior either but I'd prob live with cardboard and balsa wood in order to hear that rumbling V8.

ive always liked the C63 AMG and this is awesome. But ya... it needs a manual transmission and wider rear tracks. The current c63 has insane traction problems... something that most european or japanese car owners know nothing of.

I like coupes, but this is kind of bland.

Like the 3-series coupe, and the Accord coupe not bad... but not much of a styling upgrade from the sedan version, for not being relieved of just a bit of the sedan profile necessity. the styling could have afforded a bit more boldness.

The previous CLK looked just a bit more unique compared to the sedan, even the ones that were not the fully modded AMG hot-rods.

Caddy CTS coupe, and the previous G35 coupe really did pretty well to spice up the coupe styling, compared to their sedan counterparts.

I'm confused. So the E-class coupe is really mostly based on the C-class sedan, with the same wheelbase. I'm guessing then this C-class coupe has a shortened wheelbase from the C-class sedan? If so, this would be noticeably smaller than the 3 series coupe. Since the E-coupe is slightly cheaper than the E-sedan, then I'm guessing this C-coupe will also be a little cheaper than the C-sedan?
