Click on the image above for a gallery of Mercedes-Benz E500

Either someone is either rather handy with Photoshop, or Mercedes-Benz has another E-Class embargo break on their hands. The folks over at Autoblog.nl (no relation) have somehow gotten hold of what looks to be a slate of images of the 2010 E500 Coupe. We've seen mules of this car for some time now, but this is our first gander at what appears to be a wholly uncovered example.

The front end shots look decidedly similar to the already-unveiled 2010 E-Class sedan, but the profile has benefited from a more graceful roofline and the omission of a pair of doors and what looks to be a B-pillarless greenhouse. We like the swooping rear fender line and the short rear deck, but the large LED taillamps and the decklid itself will be something we have to see in person to truly wrap our heads around. Check out the gallery below and stay tuned for more details as they happen.

      I don't know. The front and side look very nice and distinctive, but the rear looks way too generic. The interior is much better than that of the E-Class sedan, though. I'll reserve judgment until an official announcement is made.

      I see a Honda Accord coupe.
        • 6 Years Ago
        exactly what I was gonna say

      I hate the fact that the rear side window is split into two. That small triangle that won't open makes the design really bad. It lacks the clean lines the previous model had.

      this is 1000 times sexier than the E class sedan!

      The funny thing is, this looks more like a smaller CL- class (Thus making it a CLK) than an E-class coupe ( which is what the previous CLKs looked like). talk about irony.... by the time they finally make a real CLK they call it something else!
        • 6 Years Ago
        you think that loks smaler than the CL? I donno I think it looks like the CL replacement
        the CLK was so much more gracefull than this adn it is quite a bit smaller too

        I think a CLK is on it's way anyhow

        but the rear on tis definitely needs a lot of help
        the fron needs some polishing too

        i'm not feeling this one

      i still don't get the divided rear side window. it's fussy and strange, not in a good way. i wonder if it's a power vent that swings out for ventilation, or just a cheap way of making sure the rear side window retracts fully? the whole car seems too contrived to me, it lacks the honest graceful lines of earlier MBs but then again, no MB has been cleanly styled in 10 years.

      Being the owner of a clk convertible I don't like this new car I think it's ugly but I'll reserve ultimate judgement for when I see it in person.

      I rather like the look of it, although I'm a bit of a fan of coupes. The second picture definitely shows the Photoshop at work, though. I'll take this with a grain of salt and wait for some real photos to show up.

      I don't doubt this is what the car will look like, but the chrome line around where the B-pillar would be isn't aligned correctly. Photoshop perhaps?

      As for the car itself, 1) the dash is UGLY 2) as much as I love the no b-pillar look on merc coupes, it doesn't do enough to make it overall a better looking car than the A5/S5 3) this would make a very good looking drop-top.

      Was thinking this one might win me away from an A5/S5 purchase, but not going to happen.

      That is much nicer than the E-class sedan. I still prefer the Audi S5 though.
      • 6 Years Ago
      I dunno'. The rear looks squidgy in both shots. My Photoshop-o-meter isn't pegged, but it's up there.

        The interior is lovely.

        The butt-end is Korean.
        • 6 Years Ago

      • 6 Years Ago
