Mercedes E-Class Coupe


Say goodbye to the Mercedes-Benz CLK coupe.

Say hello to the 2010 E-Coupe…

Prior to its debut at the Geneva Motor Show next month, Mercedes has taken the wraps off the replacement for the CLK coupe. The new 2-door will be dubbed the E-Class Coupe, which makes perfect sense as it is based on the E-Class sedan’s underpinnings.

Powerplants will also be shared with the E-Class sedan, starting with the V-6 and going all the way to the 6.2-liter AMG V8 monster. The mainstay should be the midrange V8 in the E500 Coupe providing plenty of juice with 388 horsepower.

The car looks to also be sharing styling cues with the upcoming E-class, however some minor differences will reflect the two door’s more sporting demeanor. It doesn’t come across as a stunner in pictures, but the Mercedes family resemblance is certainly present.

The E-coupe is due in showrooms this summer, with the convertible version arriving shortly thereafter. For now the jury is out. We will wait and see if Mercedes has hit the mark with this one…
