There have been a lot of spy shots and renderings of the future E-Class giving a pretty good idea of what the car should look like. Now we’ve got are hands on one that is absolutly clear about what the body is going to look like. This shot car the car almost completely uncovered. The only thing hidden is the front end which has been already almost revealed in the quad-headlight ConceptFASCINATION.
From this shot we can see that the future E-Class sedan will take some cues from its S-Class big brother. This includes a sleeker body than the current model, with harder crease lines and a slightly rising rear-end.
Expect Mercedes to offer a wide variety of V6 and V8 engines, including a 525 hp 6.3-liter V8 for the E63 AMG model. Although the coupe version is expected to be shown in Geneva in March, don’t expect to see this E-Class sedan full uncovered until the Frankfurt Auto Show in September.
