Two new special editions of the E-Class Coupe and Cabriolet have been introduced for the fall, bringing the last iteration of the model’s fourth generation to an impressive close.
Beginning this fall, customers will have the choice of opting for the either the Sport Edition or V8 Edition E-Class Coupes and Cabriolets, and a press release issued by Mercedes-Benz today details what each edition offers. There are also new technology options available for all E-Class models ordered before the 2017 model’s introduction.
Distinctive air inlets, muscular side sill panels and a radiator with chrome inserts trimmed in high-gloss black will be featured on the Sport Edition’s exterior. “Sport Edition” badges can be found on left and right wings, while an AMG spoiler lip and two-pipe exhaust system with trapezoidal tailpipe tips define the rear. A special brilliant blue metallic paint finish is reserved exclusively for these models.
In the interior, multi-contour seats are cloaked in either black or natural beige leather while linarite blue and alpaca grey topstitching accents it all. Visual highlights come from your choice of cross-grain bright aluminum, high-gloss black ash, black piano lacquer or dark textured-grain aluminum. Black velour mats with “Sport Edition” lettering sit comfortably on the ground. Pricing for the Sport Edition is an additional €4,367.30, or $4,932.52 USD as of press time, on top of the model’s base price.
The V8 Edition, priced at €7,973 or $9,004 USD, is available exclusively for the E500 Coupe and E500 Cabriolet. 408 hp comes from the V8 of each model, while “V8 Edition” badges are found on each wing. A special paint finish of either selenite grey metallic or designo diamond white bright is available for these models, while titanium grey-painted, high-sheen, 19-inch, AMG, multi-spoke light-alloy wheels tie it all together.
The interior features porcelain or red leather with black contrast stitching on the seats, while the center console features an inverse pattern of black leather with procelain or classic red topstitching.
Though the fifth generation of the E-Class, as we learned July 9, is set to be introduced in January 2016, customers purchasing an E-Class before then can opt for comprehensive smartphone integration through the use of Apple CarPlay and/or MirrorLink.
