The new special models of the E-Class Coupé and Cabriolet.
The Coupé and Cabriolet versions of the Mercedes-Benz E-Class are heading into autumn with two special edition models: a Sport Edition and a V8 Edition. For the Sport Edition, Mercedes-Benz is introducing a look that emphasises the dynamism of these two-door models. A sporty tone is set by a front apron with distinctive air inlets, a louvre in the radiator trim in high-gloss black with chrome inserts as well as muscular side sill panels. The drivers of following vehicles are treated to the view of a diffuser-look rear apron, an AMG spoiler lip in the vehicle colour and a two-pipe exhaust system with trapezoidal tailpipe tips.
The AGILITY CONTROL sports suspension with sporty spring and damper tuning guarantees enhanced driving dynamics and is equipped with exclusive 18-inch AMG light-alloy wheels, perforated front brake discs and brake callipers with “Mercedes-Benz” lettering. The special models are identified by “Sport Edition” badges on the left and right wings.
In the interior, the driver and front passenger are accommodated in black leather-upholstered multicontour seats – with linarite blue and alpaca grey topstitching also for the door centre panels, armrest and centre console. Appointments in black or natural beige nappa leather are optionally available. The sporty nature of these special edition models is further underscored by a three-spoke multifunction sports steering wheel covered in nappa leather, silver steering wheel shift paddles and sports pedals in brushed stainless steel with rubber studs.
To underline the exclusiveness of the Sport Edition of the Coupé and Cabriolet, a special paint finish in brilliant blue metallic is available and is reserved exclusively for these special edition models. The Sport Edition can be ordered with any of the engines that are available for the E-Class Coupé and E-Class Cabriolet.
Muscular visual attractions for connoisseurs.
The V8 Edition is based on the E 500 Coupé and E 500 Cabriolet each with 300 kW/408 hp. Powered by an eight-cylinder V-engine, even the basic versions of both variants are among the most exceptional vehicles on the road. With the connoisseurs in mind, the V8 Edition takes both the Coupé and the Cabriolet to a new level in terms of style and exquisite appointments. Aware of the tastes of automotive aficionados, the design specialists at Mercedes-Benz have opted for a first-class equipment specification. The V8 Edition offers a unique package of exclusive highlights. On the exterior, these include titanium grey-painted, high-sheen 19-inch AMG multi-spoke light-alloy wheels and “V8 Edition” badges on the wings. Special paint finishes in selenite grey metallic and designo diamond white bright emphasise the exclusive, sporty character of the V8 special models.
