Although we’ve seen some 2011 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe spy shots before, this is the first time we’ve seen the car in a colour other than the bland camouflage matte black.
In white, we can see the panel details more clearly and it seems to mimic the design language of the upcoming CLS Coupe.
The front end takes on the new Mercedes-Benz styling which is more handsome and clean cut than the existing model, with the bulk of the headlights being less fussy than the current offering.
There also seems to be new conservative-looking wheels for the upcoming C-Class Coupe, sticking to the German style. These do away with fancy multi-spoke designs to come out of Japan, Australia and Korea.
Mercedes-Benz has done a nice job with the C-Class Coupe, it looks very clean and solid and there’s no excess in any particular area. It also looks very sporty and composed, even when standing still.
There’s also been rumours spread earlier this year that a new BMW 335i-rivalling package could be on offer with this C-Class Coupe.
With the range-topper possibly packing a V6 twin-turbo of some description. Now that would be nice and it’ll match the aggression of those pumped guards. We’ll have to wait for the Paris Motor Show in a few weeks to know for sure if Mercedes-Benz is going to offer such a variant though.
Meanwhile the Mercedes-Benz trademark black glass roof and large sunroof sets the car apart from its sedan brothers and gives the coupe a classy touch and a more open environment inside.
The interior on this Coupe is said to feature the same dash layout as the upcoming C-Class sedan. It looks very civilised and modern inside, offering a driver-focused position and layout of controls. Check out that steering wheel too, it looks very sporty indeed.
Look out for more updates on this and the new C-Class sedan when the Paris Show comes around in early October.
