You won't see many versions of this special Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupe on the roads.
Mercedes-Benz has a habit of releasing limited variants of its luxury cars, with the recent unveiling of the sleek and stylish S-Class Night Edition available in either high gloss black or matte finish among other quirks. Special ‘Edition 1’ variants with unique features are also common for launches, and are usually limited to a few hundred units. The latest Mercedes to get the special edition treatment is the recently released E-Class Coupe, with the exclusive Edition 1 limited to just 555 models.
What distinguishes the Edition 1 is its striking matte white paint, or “Matte Design Cashmere White Magno,” to use its official name, along with 20-inch AMG multi-spoke alloy wheels coated in black similar to the Night Edition with a machined outer finished and special Edition 1 badging. You also get the more aggressive AMG Line appearance package as well as a Night Package adding a new diamond grille, gloss black door mirror caps and gloss black window surrounds – both packages are usually offered as an optional extra. The sumptuous interior hasn’t been left untouched, either. Inside, you’ll be greeted with ambient lighting, plus the usual array of luxurious materials.
The AMG steering wheel is wrapped in Dinamica microfiber, and the Nappa leather upholstery will no doubt offer crisp comfort. The center console is also decorated in piano black, while other extras include new floor mats and an Edition 1 plaque. The Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupe is notable for being the first mid-sized coupe from the manufacturer to be based on the sedan that shares its name, rather than the C-Class, in 20 years. As a result, it’s significantly larger and more imposing than its predecessor. Four engines are available: a 2.0-liter four-cylinder diesel pushing 194 horsepower, two 2.0-liter four-cylinder gasoline engines churning out 184 and 245 hp, and a 3.0-liter V6 with 333 hp.
