Mercedes is preparing a tuned version of the E-Class Coupe

Back in April, Top Speed reported that the German luxury car builder Mercedes Benz will not make an E63 AMG Coupe because it won’t fit in the current automaker’s line-up. Before you get to upset, there is some good news: the Mercedes E-Class Coupe will have a sport tuned version, even if it doesn’t wear an AMG badge.

Set to be unveiled sometime in 2010, the new model will be powered by the same 6.2 Liter V8 engine found in the current C63 AMG and will receive some of the components from the AMG Black Series models.

Well the sports tuning suits the E Class. It improves its features. Wise move on the part of the management.

Atleast this option is quite useful and a sure promising add up for the usual E class

What siginificant here is the sporty proportions and supercharged performance.

AMGs are supposed to be sporty and coupes are sportier than 4 door lards to be honest and since they all (ELK, CLS and E class) share many components it would be stupid not to extend it to this car. Perhaps Merc should only make a Black Series version of the ELK and no mainstream AMG version to give this coupe an exclusive niche

The reason for offering of a sporty E Class Coupe rather than an E63 is that the company management decided that an E63 AMG Coupe would be too close in price and features to the CLS63 “four-door-coupe.” As a result, plans for the car were scrapped

The new Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupe is all-new for 2010, with sleeker, sportier proportions and improved efficiency and performance

FYI: The 2010 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupe replaces the CLK-Class coupe. Mercedes-Benz The 2010 E-Class Coupe makes its worldwide debut at Geneva next month
