The next-generation SLK test mule has been spotted making rounds on a track, prepping for a possible 2010 release date. The 2011 Mercedes-Benz SLK will spot a similar, if not same, hard top folding roof, get some new LED fog lights as well as be similar in design to the new SLC Gullwing in the front. Our friends over at GlobalMotors.net have also noticed that the side mirrors are attached to the doors on this prototype, but that could be only temporary. In terms of engine options, a diesel 2.2 liter 4 cylider twin-turbo may also be available upon launch, and some say that even a hybrid version will available…. Continue Reading »

Not only did we get some exclusive spy photos of the new E-Class Coupe yesterday, but we also got a mini review of the Coupe. Another Insider sent us a mail with some very interesting tidbits. Here is it in her/his own words. … well, about the differences, there are many compared to the CLK. On this new E-Coupe, you have all the technologies of C-Class + E-Class, such as the Advanced Agility suspension as well as Night View Assist. The aircon has been upgraded (even in standard, it’s now electronic). In terms of handling, the car is even more comfortable and easier to drive. As the car is quite… 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 »
Here is something you don’t see everyday – an E-Class Limo test mule. Well it seems the GlobalMotors.net spy photographers captured what will become an E-Class Limousine being tested in Germany. It’s unfortunate that we have no additional information regarding this vehicle, besides it obviously being 3 feet longer than a normal E-Class, but stay tuned, I am sure more info will be revealed soon.
Last week, we got the opportunity to see a computer illustration on what the 2010 E-Class Cabrio might look like. This week, courtesy of our beloved GlobalMotors guys, we get to see fresh spy shots of the upcoming E-Class Cabrio. It will be closely based on the coupe version, and will even inherit the E-Class sedan engines. The only thing different is that it will have a soft top, which of course is acceptable, but I am more in favor of having a hard top. Either way, looking forward to more spy shots and info of course.

Mercedes-Benz officially announced the new E-Class yesterday, and today, we are getting fresh spy shots of the new E-Class Coupe. It seems that Mercedes is either not really trying to hide the E-Class Coupe or the spy ninjas are really good. I am actually more inclined to believe that Mercedes is preparing to officially announce the coupe the coupe in about 2 months at the Geneva Auto Show, so they aren’t concerned about spy shots anymore. As always, a big thanks goes out to GlobalMotors.net and their spy photographers.
We’ve seen spy shots of the next-gen CLS a few weeks back, but here are some more. This time we not only get to see the back of the test mule, but also the front and side. Test engineers have actually covered it up so much that it’s almost impossible to recognize the CLS, nevertheless, the world-famous CLS form is there and clearly visible. The spy photographer noted that it will be based on the E-Class and not the S-Class platform, as some have suggested. It will however, get the BlueHybrid engine that will be coming with the S 400, as well as all the diesel and gasoline engines from… Continue Reading »
