Now that the official photos of the 2010 Mercedes-Benz E-Class have been leaked, it's only fitting that photos showcasing the new E-Class Coupe nearly undisguised have began appearing as well. As you'll see (and as we all expected), the similarities between the E-Class Coupe and sedan are abundant, with a notable difference up front being the sportier grille with corresponding Mercedes star. As of now it's being said that the grille won't be available on the E-Class sedan – instead only on the coupe variant – but personally, I wouldn't mind seeing it made available for the next-generation E63 AMG.
In the back,
the coupe's overall shape again coincides with the sedan's, but again, there's a few key differences. The taillights, while similar to the traditional E-Class, are unique, featuring a slightly larger design. This, no doubt, is to help compliment the coupe's slightly more bulbous rear end, while other differences include the altered roof line and rear window that are synonymous with all coupes derived from sedans.
To see the new model and judge for yourself Mercedes designers' work on the next CLK (aka, E-Class Coupe), you can view two photos galleries of it by visiting Autocar and WorldCarFans.
And to our friend Monk: many thanks for the tip my good sir; we sincerely appreciate it.
