17 02 2009

The all-new 2010 Mercedes Benz E-Class Coupe officially revealed ahead of the 2009 Geneva Motor Show. The Coupe’s styling is based on the new 2010 E-Class Sedan, unveiled at the Detroit Auto Show last month, and it shares most of its engines and its interior with the four-door as well.

With the new design, Mercedes claims that the E-Class Coupe will be the “world’s most aerodynamically efficient series-production car.” That’s a bold claim to make but one can see in the newly acquired sleekness of the body that things have changed. This Coupe, in its slight form with no B-pillars and completely retractable side windows, creates a drag coefficient of just 0.24.

New 2010 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupe Leaked: First Official Photos

24 01 2009

First official images of the new Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupe have been non-officially leaked on the web. Just like the E-Class Sedan that made its entrance on the web well before the formal unveiling, the Coupe story of the Merc’s executive saloon that will swap the CLK vehicle and convertible models has been ingloriously naked through a sequence of leaked photos that seem to have been scanned from a brochure.

Lots of straight sharp exterior lines and concave/ convex bodywork will establish it as something of a fresh take on the coupe for Mercedes. The front is dominated by a twin-blade chromed grille with a huge Mercedes-Benz three-point star plastered over it. The lower grille features a sporty mesh design flanked by two LED slits on both sides. Overall it gives the impression of either an AMG model or AMG kit. We are inclined to choose the latter because of the two tailpipes instead of four as found in the current CLK 63 AMG. This car even features an integrated rear diffuser and what appears to be rear LED lights.
