The German tuner, Piecha Design, is offering a new body kit for the Mercedes E-Class cabrio that can also be applied for the coupe version. Called the Caractére RS, the package makes the E-Class Cabrio look sleeker and sportier.

The exterior package includes a new bumper, new air intakes, new side skirts with lights in them, a redesigned bumper, a boot lid spoiler and a new diffuser that is quite sizable. There is also a new sport exhaust system with 4 exhaust tips (2 on each side). The exterior package is completed by a new set of 19-inch custom design 8-spoke Phantom wheels. There is also a revised roof module which allows the top to be raised or lowered at speeds up to 30 mph.

The tuner didn’t say anything about the interior changes, but we expect to see some modifications in there too. There was also nothing said about any engine updates, but we think that the E-Class Cabrio comes with enough power straight from the factory: a 3.5 Liter V6 that makes 268 HP and 258 lb-ft of torque in the E350 and a 5.5 Liter V8 pumping out 382 HP and 391 lb-ft of torque in the E550.

Almost all convertible cars here in Mercedes have the same style and platform but I must say that I’m impressed with the decency that this car had.
