Anxious to debut the brand new 2010 E-Class Coupe, Merc jumped the gun slightly and released an official image of the new 2-door E-Class that will be making its first international appearance at the 2009 Geneva Motor Show in Switzerland next March. Hyped as the most high-performance series vehicle in the world, the 2010 E-Class Coupe will hit U.S. dealerships in June of 2009 with two optional trim levels: the E350 V6 and the E550 V8. Both models boast impressive track-ready specs, with the E350’s V6 engine conservatively rated at 268 horsepower and 250 lb-ft of torque, and the E550’s V8 capable of 382 horsepower and 391 lb-ft, yet Mercedes insists the powerful speed demons are dainty fuel-sippers at the pump.
Aesthetically, the 2010 E-Class Coupe combines distinct design characteristics from the next-gen E-Class sedan with new twin block-unit headlights that curve slightly inward and upwards into the hood, and a solid, chunkier rear-fender. Unlike it’s sedan brethren, however, the E-Class Coupe’s front fascia wears a slightly sleeker, more aerodynamic expression, projecting the illusion of a seasoned racer that is perpetually unimpressed by the competition.
