Three prototypes of the new Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupe were caught on camera recently, as shown in a report from autoevolution.com. Seeing prototypes like the E-Class Coupe in Stuttgart is not unusual since the luxury vehicle manufacturer does its best work in the area. Similarly, it is also not unusual to see a Porsche 911 in the same area since Porsche is also based in Stuttgart.
But, seeing these prototypes of the E-Class Coupe all lined up in a convoy with a Porsche 911 leading the way is something that does not happens every day. The 911 was considered a standard in premium luxury vehicle even prior to the release of the E-Class. Industry watchers have compared the Porsche with the SL-Class and CLK. In addition to these two models, Mercedes-Benz also produced other luxury vehicles.
The first was the S-Class Coupe followed by the C-Class Coupe, which is currently being launched in the US market. The market niche between these two models is set to be filled by the Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupe, which has given the codename C238.
For the moment, the full body design of the E-Class Coupe has yet to be revealed unlike the E-Class Estate. The three prototypes of the E-Class Coupe were covered with camouflaged and the shape of the bumper and trunk were disguised using panels. The platform for the E-Class sedan is set to be used by the E-Class Coupe. This particular model offers more features compared to the S-Class. One of these features is its advanced computer that allows it to do just about anything.
The past few years saw Mercedes-Benz working on the engine. The company used a 4.0-liter twin -turbo engine from AMG as well as a 2.0-liter diesel engine. It replaced the 3.5-liter V6 engine. These engines are expected to be used on the Mercedes-Benz E-Class in the future.
