Mercedes Benz E Class Coupe spied in Spain

A couple of days ago we showed you a few leaked photos of the new E Class Coupe, Mercedes’ replacement for the current CLK and now we’ve got the first photos showing the car on the street. The vehicle was photographed in Mallorca, Spain during an internal event for employees, by the guys from Motorpasion and it has minimal camouflage; except for the headlights and tail lights, which are covered, the car is completely undisguised. So, what do you think, will Mercedes be able to compete with the other German luxury coupes, like the 3 Series Coupe or the Audi A5/S5? I think they can, because, like any other Mercedes model, they’ve decided to go for more stylish and less aggressive, which I think will appeal to a lot of customers.

For more photos of the car, check out the complete photo gallery on Motorpasion.


BMW Progressive Activity Sedan (PAS) spied

BMW is once again spied in the American desert. This time, the target was the new PAS, or V-series or RFK as this model has had different names circulating around it. Hevily masked, there is not much to say about the exterior design. But, we can clarify that we are not talking about a van (R-class competitor) as some rumored, and it is a rather sedan-coupe shape with frameless windows. It could be aimed at Mercedes’s CLS coupe. A final version is set to be unveiled at the 2009 IAA Frankfurt motorshow.


Video: Aston Martin Rapide spied

Commenting one of our posts on the Aston Martin Rapide, one of our readers said that these British cars have “elegance without compromising the performance and the capability of the car to compete with those other sports cars”. Beautiful! As we said many times, Aston Martin is one of our favourite car makers and here’s a video of their upcoming car, the 4 door coupe Aston Martin Rapide, somewhere around Nurburgring.

Scheduled to be launched next year, we expect to see the final production version of the Rapide at next year’s Detroit Auto Show, in January, or, with a little luck, maybe one of these year’s auto shows will mark the car’s debut. We’ll see. Meanwhile, enjoy the video!

Video: Cadillac CTS Coupe spied

The Cadillac CTS Coupe debuted at Detroit, we saw it live at Geneva and we were really impressed with it. So here is a spy video by Inside Line, which shows the car being tested at GM’s Milford Proving Grounds. Though the CTS Coupe is pretty well camouflaged, we can see that the production version will hold many of the Concept’s characteristics.
