P8 and another future models from Mercedes Benz
Autoweek has made an overview of the future coming from Mercedes Benz.
The first one, actually the one which is very unclear at this moment is the P8. It is not sure at this moment if this high-performance, two passenger coupe will be produced, but there is word that the new Mercedes management has put the car back on the drawing board.
The P8 will be manufactured by partner McLaren. The P8 will feature the new 6.3 Liter V8 AMG Engine with an output of 510 Hp. It is very probably to debut in early 2008 and it will cost less than the US$. 455.750,00 SLR Limited Edition.
Another model coming from Mercedes are:
C-Class coming in 2007 (In Curacao the first will arrive in May 2007)
CLK-Class Coupe/Convertible in 2008
E-Class and a four door coupe CLS-Class freshened in 2009
A diesel version of the S-Class is due in 2007
The re-designed CL-Class is expected in late 2006 as the CL550, equipped with the new S-Class engine.
A two passenger SLK will be re-styled in 2008
The SL-Class will be re-designed in 2008
The R-Class will not be freshened untill 2009
A smaller crossover is expected to be developed on the new C-Class plattform for 2008 or 2009.
