Spy shots for the facelift version of the Mercedes E-Class have been collected for months, but the heavy camouflage found in the images did not provide for a clear view of the changes made. Now we have finally received not just a crack of the cammo, but the full-on disappearing act of the annoying cover-up with a cammo-free image of the new E-Class taken somewhere in Madrid, Spain.

Judging by the large alloy wheels, the big air vents on the front bumper, and the red brake calipers, as well as the fact that the photographer said there was a big "V8 biturbo" logo on the front fender, this could very well be the E-Class’ AMG version.

The facelift E-Class will feature sleeker looking headlamps with LED Day driving, new front and rear bumpers, and new rear lights. The AMG version will be powered by a 5.5 liter twin-turbo V8 engine that will deliver a total of 543 HP.

i am amazed that they lifted the cammo. maybe it’s a media campaign.

you are right tinur. but that is a good thing for us, the potential buyers. because we will get the best the car makers can come up with.

i think there is always a competition between the three manufacturers. it’s not like any of them is going to give up.
