The first one is called “V8 Edition” and it’s based on the E500 models, but adds multi-spoke 19-inch AMG lightweight alloy wheels finished in titanium grey, along with V8 Edition exterior badging. It gets the Agility Control sports suspension as standard which means buyers will benefit from the adaptive damping system as well as a sport mode which upon activation will boost agility as well as ride comfort.
Stepping inside the cabin, the cars come with multi-contour front seats wrapped around in black or porcelain Nappa leather. Other tweaks worth mentioning include the flat-bottomed perforated steering wheel, Nappa leather armrests, contrast stitching and a black Nappa leather wrap for the instrument panel and dashboard. Mercedes-Benz has also added a revised infotainment system with support for Apple CarPlay and they also installed a tri-zone automatic climate control system.
At home in Germany, this “V8 Edition” package costs an extra €7,973 over the standard E500 Coupe & Cabrio.
The second special model is known as the “Sport Edition” and as the name implies it brings a sportier exterior appearance with a faux rear diffuser, aggressive front fascia and beefier side skirts. Also part of the package are the AMG 18-inch wheels, AMG rear spoiler and a dual exhaust setup that has trapezoidal end pipes.
On the inside you will find the same multi-contour seats with alpaca grey or linarite blue stitching and a three-spoke steering wheel. Mercedes-Benz is giving customers the possibility of choosing between black piano lacquer, high-gloss black ash, aluminum and dark-textured grain aluminum trims, while bespoke floor mats with “Sport Edition” lettering are also part of the package and come together with stainless steel pedals.
This Sport Edition is compatible with all of the engines from the E-Class range and it increases the car’s price tag by €4,367 compared to the base model.
