Why didn't they make it styled after the SLR? That would have been pure gold.

Post 2010 Mercedes E Class Coupe Profiled in Latest Spy Shots

From Worldcarfans...

New spy shots of the Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupé have popped up. Photographed in Germany, anticipation is boiling over for Stuttgart's replacement line for the CLK.

Looking rather dynamic in the metallic dark grey paint with silver lined windows and five-point alloys, one can't help but wonder if this car was meant to be photographed before its debut. A very sleek, but slightly covered black beauty was seen as well. Clearly, the car has taken some inspiration from the FASCINATION concept shown at Paris in 2008. Engine options begin with the 1.8 liter turbocharged petrol, and stops with the mammoth AMG 500 horsepower machine.

On sale this year, the Mercedes E-Class Coupé will likely debut at the Geneva Motor Show in March. The E-Class four-door sedan is coming to the NAIAS in Detroit, and the convertible should see daylight later in the year.

rims are ish.

car looks great, however, the mini-B pillar kills it. it looks like a door is missing.

its like they weighed these two design options-
1. all windows must roll down completely
2. the slope of the window framing must come to a point in the rear 3/4 panel to match sig benz design

...but they decided to go with both options and have that poorly located B pillar

i think the wheels would look better if the spokes were extended straight into the rim.

but the car, itself, looks good.

I don't think it's there just to match the Benz designs. If they didn't have that cut in the glass, and instead the whole rear glass panel rolled down, it wouldn't roll down very far at all. It's just function over form.

But yeah it looks nasty.

Post Sedan brochure scans leaked

From WCF...

Early in December 2008 the very first official pictures of the new 2010 Mercedes-Benz E-Class were leaked. And now less than a month later a scanned chunk of the marketing brochure with some detailed technical information and pictures has also been leaked.

Contained in the German-language brochure are very intimate details of the 2010 E-Class. The car is 4.868 metres long and has a wheelbase of 2.87 metres. It comes with a range of engines with 4 and 6 cylinder models in both petrol and turbo diesel form. With the exception of the E350 4Matic models and E350 BlueTEC, all other models are BlueEfficiency equipped. Powerplants include the E200 CGI with 135kW (184hp) and 270Nm, E250 CGI with 150kW (204hp)and 310Nm, E350 CGI making 215kW (292hp)and 365Nm, and the 285kW (388hp) E500 producing 530Nm.

Diesels are pretty strong too. The E200 CDI is good for 100kW (136hp) and 360Nm, from the same engine its E220 sibling does 125kW (170hp) and 400Nm. At the top end we find an E250 CDI with 150kW (204hp) and 500Nm plus a 3.0-litre E350 CDI with BlueEfficiency makes a heady 170kW (231hp) and 540Nm of torque.

Pretty much all the styling details of the E-Class can be seen; from front to the sides to the rear. The standard car is defined by its 9-spoke 16-inch alloy wheels and the chrome grille. Some styling packages like the ELEGANCE and AMG Sports Package are available to assist buyers when individualizing the look of their cars.

The ELEGANCE Package offers features like the liberal use of chrome for styling while AVANTGARDE models are sportier and more agile in their appearance. The differences up front are very clear when the two models stand side by side. ELEGANCE models feature double foglights on each side and more chrome on the grille while AVANTGARDE models have different shaped LED foglights below the bi-xenon lights and one less chrome rib on the grille. Wheels are 17-inch alloys.

Differences extend to the interior where high quality materials are evident for both packages but ELEGANCE uses more contrast of leather with wooden materials whereas AVANTGARDE cars are fitted with aluminium to emphasize their sportier feel. An EXCLUSIVE package is also available featuring luxury materials like Nappa leather upholstery and Alcantara. The AMG Sports package comes with sports seats, a contrasting interior colour scheme and an expression of dynamic power.

Although no details of the actual E-Class AMG are in these leaked brochure scans, this particular package gives a good idea of what it might look like.

I'm just not feeling it... both the exterior and interior seem just a bit off, for me personally. I have no doubts it'll be an awesome car; just not for me.

I'm not a fan of MB but at least their designs are usually passable.

This, however, is not.

It's payback time. The Hyundai Genesis copies the Mercedes, and now in return the E-class copies the Hyundai !
