2009 Mercedes E-Class spy shots
At 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show, Mercedes will unveil the next generation E-Class. The next E class will ape the S-class’s wheel-arch extensions, rising character line below the door handles, massive bumpers, and greenhouse. A more sculpted wide-frame grille, the more geometric nasal air intakes, and the wedge-shaped profile should give W212 a sportier stance.
Mercedes will abandon SBC in favour of conventional brakes, although they will boast features such as wet-weather disc wiping and wheel-selective cornering brake control. The 2009 E-Class will be powered by the usual V6- and V8-engines, plus a normally aspirated, 500-plus-bhp 6.3-litreV8 for the E63 AMG model.
