The German luxury car builder, Mercedes Benz unveiled their Concept Fascination back a t the 2008 Paris Motor Show. What was once boasted as nothing more than a design study focused on bringing back the shooting brake, is now rumored to be going into production as another iteration of the new Mercedes Benz E-Class for 2010. With this final addition, the E lineup has now grown to 5 body styles: saloon, coupe, convertible, estate and now shooting brake. The estate/coupe combination should make its official debut some time in 2011.

Under the hood, the engine lineup will be the same as the E-Class Coupe. Power plants will range from four and six cylinder engines to a mighty V8 for the top of the line E-Class Shooting Brake. One thing is for certain, with this kind of sports inspired body, a high performance version will almost definitely be an option.

Until then we will just have to wait for the wagon to be revealed in Frankfurt, and for the convertible to come sometime after. When all of the new E-Class cars finally do make their debuts, Mercedes Benz is going to have a whole lot of attractive cars to get rid of.

When this concept debuted last year, I immediately found that it was so hard to resist. Even with the introduction of E class Sedan and Coupe, I still believe that this shooking brake is the most elegant and beautiful in E series. Simply facinating!

I must say that while the rear end hints at the E-Class estate’s styling, the front end shows the coupe version’s looks. Notice the that Flowing lines are central to the concept car’s look. With what I ahve read styling touches such as the frameless side windows are not expected to make it into production.
