Mercedes-Benz has released the first official photos of its new E-Class
Coupe along with several key details prior to the car's debut at the Geneva Auto Show next month. Arriving here in late June, this strikingly styled pillar-less two-door will replace the existing CLK Coupe and be offered to U.S. buyers in E350 (fitted with a 268-horsepower V6) and E550 (fitted with a 382-horsepower V8) forms. Adding its own edgy flair to the E-Class Sedan's visual cues, the Coupe's bodywork nets a 0.24 coefficient of drag, making it the world's most aerodynamically efficient production car. The Coupe's roster of luxury touches includes leather upholstery, a Panorama roof, multifunction COMAND system and a premium audio package. Agility Control adaptive suspension, M-B's ATTENTION ASSIST drowsiness detection and PRE-SAFE systems highlight its safety kit. While a soft-top variant will arrive in early 2010, the fate of a U.S.-spec AMG model remains uncertain.
