• C-class Coupe nearing completion - January unveil - AMG model coming

      We are close to a full reveal of the new C-class coupe. What we are wondering is if any of the TT V8's will find their way under the hood and what the curb weight will be. An AMG version of this car will no doubt make for an excellent rival for the E92 M3 if not potentially eclipse it if Mercedes decides to give it one of the newer powerplants. It would be a safer bet to say it will get the M156 V8 which would be shared with the C63. We will know more in January when it is officially unveiled at the Detroit Auto Show.

        It looks good so far. I'm guessing the rear windows go down. That would be nice.

        I saw a white test mule on Sunset Blvd a couple of weeks ago.
        It's not as pretty as the e coupe - then again it had some "disguise" covering its true form

        A manual will be great but if Benz pairs DCT's with these BMW will no longer be as viable of a driver's car option...

        I am not liking this coupe at all. Looks like a pontiac.

        I'd have to be pretty drunk to find that Pontiac as attractive as the C-class.
