Spy Shots: 2011 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe
After, the not so successful release particularly in the U.S., of Mercedes-Benz’s last C-Class coupe, the CLC, the Mercedes Benz is caught working and testing on an all-new version of the C-Class Coupe. This failure to succeed of the coupe is attributed in part to its awkward styling and in part towards its being based on the previous-generation car, with only minor styling tweaks to update its look.
The new C-Class Coupe would debut as a 2011 model sometime next year. The 2011 year model shall be bearing the front-end looks with the cosmetic improvement in the C-Class sedan. The new Coupe’s proportions are more in line with the rest of the range. The 2001 C-Class Coupe may appear to some a bit like a down-sized E-Class Coupe.
The front bumper is still clad heavily to exploiting the natural surroundings to disguise it. It is very much perceived that the nose will get a look similar to that of the new E-Class, possibly with LED daytime running lights below the headlights. The other cosmetic upgrading includes a wide, mesh-covered lower air intake below a two-bar grille in the new 2011 sedan.
The AMG C-Class Coupe is considered likely to get the new 5.5-liter twin-turbo V-8 engine that powers the other Mercedes AMG products such as the new CL-Class. The coupe may have both six-speed manual transmission and seven-speed automatic transmissions across the new range.
Since some of the facts are unofficial insider information and some are based on the trends and speculation you should not be surprised if the specifications of the final car vary widely from what we can predict today.
