Mercedes has taken the wraps off two new special edition packages for the E-Class Coupe and Convertible.

First up, the V8 Edition is based on the E 500 Coupe and E 500 Cabrio.  It includes a modestly revised exterior with "V8 Edition" badging and 19-inch AMG multi-spoke light-alloy wheels which are painted titanium grey.  The model also comes standard with the Agility Control sports suspension which features an adaptive damping system and a sport mode that promises to deliver "improved agility and ride comfort."

Bigger changes occur in the cabin as the models come nicely equipped with multicontour front seats and porcelain or black nappa leather upholstery.  The model also has a perforated flat-bottomed steering wheel, contrast stitching, nappa leather armrests and a black nappa leather-wrapped dashboard and instrument panel.  Other highlights include a tri-zone automatic climate control system and an updated infotainment system with Apple CarPlay compatibility.

In Germany, the V8 Edition package will cost 7973 euros.

Moving on the, E-Class Coupe and Convertible Sport Edition feature an aggressive front fascia, muscular side skirts and a faux rear diffuser.  The cars also have an AMG rear spoiler, a dual exhaust system with trapezoidal tips and exclusive 18-inch AMG light-alloy wheels.

Inside, there's black leather multicontour front seats, linarite blue and alpaca grey contrast stitching as well as cross-grain bright aluminum trim (high-gloss black ash, black piano lacquer and dark textured-grain aluminum are also available).  The package also adds a three-spoke sports steering wheel, stainless steel pedals and special floor mats with "Sport Edition" badging.

The Sport Edition package can be ordered with any engine and it costs an additional 4367.30 euros.
