Word the web is that Mercedes-Benz will not build a replacement for the CLK63 AMG. Mercedes says that it doesn’t plan on producing an AMG version of the now called E-Class Coupe, stating that positioning is the problem. An Insider told Autocar at the New York Auto Show that a new version of the CLK63 would be too close to the CLS63 AMG, both in price and positioning – which they say might lead to sales cannibalization. The new E-Class is now being built on the E-Class platform, where as the CLK was built on the C-Class platform. This will also have an impact on any successor to the CLK… Continue Reading »

We’ve received exclusive spy shots of the next-gen Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupe from our very own spy photographer and “Insider”. You’ve seen dozens of such sighting in the past, but I don’t believe we’ve seen pictures of the car this close and (shall we say) personal. In this round of spy shots, we not only get to see the exterior in plain sight, but a glimpse into the interior. The Mercedes interior emblems have been removed, as is customary in test vehicles, but we’re still able to see the rest of the dashboard, steering wheels as well as the shift knob. Our Insider has also confirmed that Mercedes-Benz is close to… Continue Reading »

We’re only a few months away from the Geneva Auto Show, where the E-Class Coupe is supposed to be revealed, but we are being bombarded by the newest spy shots of the upcoming Coupe. Yesterday spy photographers spotted a test vehicle in Wales, and today we get spy shots of another test vehicle, this time in Germany. This latest shot spots even less camo and is almost fully visible; the only thing covered are the head and taillights. This shot also clearly shows the resemblance to the current CL; I guess we have another name for it then – the baby CL. Autoblog.it via Jalopnik
Spy shots of new Mercedes-Benz models just keep popping up. Just yesterday we got a glimpse at the next-gen CLS, and this morning we get to see numerous spy shots of the new E-Class Coupe, aka CLK, which should go on sale sometimes next year. Spy photographers spotted the test mule on UK roads, and did not hesitate to capture some great shots of the right-hand-drive Coupe in Llandudno, Wales. As we’ve already discussed in the past, the new Coupe front-end will be based on the Concept Fascination; the pillar-less side is very reminiscent to the current CL-Class. Autocar also reports that higher-end cupes will get LED daytime running lights,… Continue Reading »
The guys over at WorldCarFans.com have some interesting footage of what will be the next E-Class Coupe. As you may remember, Mercedes will be changing the names for the CLK and CL, replacing them with E-Class Coupe and S-Class coupe respectively. It’s rumored that E-Class coupe will arrive to show room in spring of 2009 in show room, but we have our doubts about such a date – probably close to the end of 2009. As you’ll see below, NextAutos also captured some great images of the coupe while being tested.
