Breaking: Mercedes C-Class Coupe Targets BMW 1 Series

Mercedes will bring to market a C-Class Coupe to compete directly with cars like the BMW 1 Series and grab important entry-level customers. Earlier this year the luxury automaker released the E-Class Coupe and now this C-Class coupe is expected later this year as a 2011 model.

Above is the first image of the upcoming 2011 C-Class Coupe, looking slightly stubbier than the E. And with no B-pillar to speak of, it not only looks sleek, but gives an obvious hint that a C-Class convertible is also in the works.

Power will reportedly come from a direct-injection version of the company's 3.5-liter V6, as well as a smaller displacement engine with twin-turbos. Expect that motor to make roughly 300-hp.

In addition, an AMG version could potentially follow in 2012, using AMG's planned twin-turbo 5.5-liter V8 engine.

I've always loved Mercedes coupes... This looks sooo much better that the early 2000s C230 coupe / hatchback. Bravo Benz! I'll look forward to this one. Should be sub $40k as well.

1 series? What about the 3-series coupe?
