Mercedes-Benz E Class Coupe
With its expressive coupé-esque proportions, clear and sensual design and long-distance comfort for four people, the new E-Class Coupé combines the beauty and classic virtues of a grand tourer with state-of-the-art technology. The new E-Class Coupé has sporty, luxurious interior with refined details, and embodies the synthesis of sporty emotion and luxurious intelligence. As a member of the current E-Class family, the new Coupé is significantly more intelligent than its predecessor. It comes with all the features of the E-Class, the most intelligent executive saloon.
The significantly larger footprint compared with the previous model is to the benefit of passengers with extra spaciousness and comfort. They profit especially in terms of rear knee room, front and rear shoulder room as well as rear headroom. In each of the four fully fledged seats with coupé-specific individual seat character, the driver and passengers enjoy genuine comfort on long journeys as well as the classic virtues of a grand tourer.
Mercedes-AMG E 43
The looks of the Mercedes-AMG E 43 render it immediately recognisable as a member of the AMG family. Apart from underscoring the powerful and self-assured appearance, three large openings in the front apron also ensure an optimum flow of air to the coolers. The interior design of the car is sporty look with model-specific details. The interior reinforces the dynamic calibre of the new E 43 4MATIC with numerous individual details.
The V6 biturbo engine boasts a high power output combined with low fuel consumption and emissions. The high power output of 295 kW (401 hp) is attributable, among other things, to new, larger turbochargers and the higher charge-air pressure of 1.1 bar.
Mercedes-AMG SLC 43

The sporty range-topping Mercedes-AMG SLC 43 comes with 270 kW (367 hp).
As part of the facelift, the Mercedes-Benz designers have further honed the cult roadster's sporty look. The new front section, where the steeply raked radiator grille elongates the appearance of the arrow-shaped bonnet, is particularly striking. A feature that continues to be unique to the SLC is the panoramic vario-roof with MAGIC SKY CONTROL this glass roof is lightened or darkened at the touch of a button. Operating the electrohydraulic roof is now even more straightforward.
