The Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe has lost its rear doors thanks to a digital interpretation provided by X-Tomi Design.

The independent artist from Hungary envisioned the “coupe crossover” in the GLE 450 AMG Coupe guise but without the rear doors while the roofline is slightly more sloped at the back. It might not be that bad of an idea if Mercedes-Benz will launch a three-door GLE, especially with the AMG Sport version which will sit above the regular variants but below the fully fledged range-topping GLE 63 AMG model.

As a refresher, the five-door GLE 450 AMG Coupe has a twin-turbo V6 3.0-liter engine producing 367 HP (270 kW) and 520 Nm (383 lb-ft). It will be shown in the flesh together with the rest of the lineup in January at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit.

The flagship GLE 63 AMG will probably be out by mid-2015 with a twin-turbo V8 4.0-liter sourced from the AMG GT and the new C63s.
