2011 Mercedes E-Class Cabrio with AMG Package

In addition to the forthcoming Prime Edition, Mercedes will also offer an
AMG Sports package for the newly launched E-Class Cabrio . Unlike the Prime Edition, which seems to have an entire catalog of Mercedes models to choose from, the AMG Sports package will only be available for the E500 model.

The rather exclusivity of the AMG Sports package comes to the fact it comes with some pretty nifty additions, not the least of which includes an AMG sports steering wheel, multicontour front seats and – in conjunction with an automatic transmission – shift paddles on the steering wheel.

In addition to that, the exterior gets light-alloy wheels featuring AMG six-twin-spoke styling, a special front and rear apron, and side sill panels. As well as providing the car with a dynamic appearance, the AMG Sports package also includes AGILITY CONTROL sports suspension, whose speed-sensitive sports steering has a more direct ratio. Perforated brake discs are also included in the package.

This Cabrio which comes on a convertible type, is aggressively elegant on the aesthetics. The interior is maintained with elegance on its tone.

that’s the rub though, with the softening of the m3 for mass appeal and the traditional ride of the Audi (getting sportier but not BMW levels), either, and certainly the S5, can play the subtle daily driver as well as this car, especially the S5 cab.

I do hope that it can cover up the issues that I find with most convertibles. One of the things that I look at with those kinds of cars is the leg room for the passengers. Most convertibles that is on 2 doors seems to have a pretty crowded space for the back passengers, I’m a big guy and I can’t drive near to the steering wheel as it wouldn’t be comfortable then. The other issue is the luggage space. Since most convertibles use the trunk for the top cover, whether rag or hard top.

Mercedes unleashed elegance once more.

I don’t really see the point of this car for two main reasons. First off, ragtops are outdated. Retracting hardtops are quieter and more secure, and therefore more fitting of a prestigious luxury marque like Mercedes. Secondly, if your going to make an AMG convertible, I don’t much see the point of a true performance car having a convertible roof. For luxury coupes that’s fine, but in real performance vehicles it just lessens rigidity and adds weight. Targas are the way to go.

Too bad it’s based on the C Class. I think it’s false advertising to call this thing the E Class coupe. CLK was somewhat more honest.
