E 300 Coupe AMG Line
The new E-Class Coupes are characterised by a distinctive front end with low-positioned sports grille and central star, a long bonnet with power domes, a rearward-shifted, squat greenhouse and a muscular rear end.
The dynamic looks are underlined by four frameless, fully retractable side windows and the absence of a visible B-pillar. As such, it conveys an air of luxury and style alike.
The new coupes come in AMG Line trim only. As such, the exterior has an added sense of sportiness from the dynamic AMG bodystyling to the diamond radiator grille with chrome pins to the large AMG light-alloy wheels.
The new coupé now feature the two-part, extremely flat LED tail lamps, which in combination with Multibeam LED headlamps celebrate the world premiere of a welcoming function.
When the vehicle is opened, the tail light LEDs illuminate successively from the centre of the vehicle outwards. On locking the
vehicle, the light sequence runs in the opposite direction. Both are additionally combined with an up and down dimming feature.
This taillight show welcomes and says goodbye to the vehicle user similarly to the familiar welcome feature of the blue optical-fibre show in the front headlamp. Thanks to innovative crystal optics, the tail lamps also have a brilliant appearance reminiscent of the glow of a jet engine.
You also have the choice to choose very sporty, highly contrasting leather interiors in black/classic red or black/deep white, all with horizontal seams.
Inside, the E 300 gets the multi-weave and black piano-lacquer trim.
Additional individualisation for the E 300 Coupé comes courtesy of the Night Package with a host of design details in high-gloss black.
