Let’s make that new C a little more interesting.
Mercedes’ new C Class sedan, introduced at Detroit last month, has already been construed as a ‘baby S Class’ - with Merc describing its design as sensual purity." Riding on this new conception, Rm.Design has come out with a sportier, sleeker 4-door coupe inspiration for the C, much like the 4-Series Gran Coupe is to the BMW 3-Series and the A5 Sportback is to the Audi A4. The design language for this liftback is heavily based on the new Mercedes S Class Coupe, revealed last week.
The design studio has also beat Mercedes in introducing a concept for the C Class Coupe - also based on the big brother from the S Class. This beautiful rendering of the two-door model should be followed shortly by Mercedes’ own production model, as we already know they are planning to offer the C Class in coupe, wagon and perhaps, convertible editions. This might seem like a lot for one model, but as we have seen from Audi and BMW, the Germans are happy to milk any of these fat cows for all their worth. And if they take Rm.Design’s advice, this should be a pretty fertile one.
