Mercedes has delivered their first E-Class coupe. The E500 with the AMG Sports package was handed over in Bremen, Germany.
Following this year's introduction at the Geneva Motor Show, Mercedes-Benz has delivered their first E-Class Coupe. 56-year-old Siegfried Möller picked up his new car at the customer center located on the grounds of the Mercedes factory in Bremen, Germany.
Möller chose an E500 Coupe, which he outfitted with the AMG Sports package, Intelligent Light System, and the COMAND system. He chose palladium silver for the paint job, a nice touch for the car. With no B-pillars, and side windows roll all the way down, anybody can enjoy looking at, or sitting in this car. It was built with a focus on aerodynamics, and has a drag coefficient of .24. The company claims this to be "the world's most aerodynamically efficient series-production car."
The E500 gets the benefit of a 5.5-liter V8 engine, which produces 388 horsepower. Maximum torque of 391 ft-lb is achieved at just 2800 rpm. With a seven speed automatic transmission, the rear-wheel-drive will provide for an enjoyable drive from Bremen to Hann, where new customer Möller runs his business.
"I have been driving Mercedes-Benz vehicles for over 25 years and my father was also a Mercedes customer. Now I'm looking forward to driving my new E 500 Coupé for the first time," he said.
