2012 Mercedes C-Class Coupe Photos Leaked

Ahead of a planned debut later this year, several official photos of the upcoming Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe have been leaked. Looking just as one might expect, the coupe model follows after a slight restyle of the sedan, which is set to debut at the Detroit Auto Show next week.

More important, however, are the new engines in the sedan that we're almost certain to get in the coupe model, in order to make it an attractive rival to cars like the BMW 3 Series.

First up is a new direct-injection 1.8-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder that makes as solid 201-hp and 229 ft-lbs of torque to deliver a 0-60 mph time of 7.0 seconds. Wearing the C250 badge, a C350 model will also be offered with a new direct-injection version of the Mercedes V6 engine that produces 302-hp and 273 ft-lbs of torque.

Both a C63 AMG version and an ultra-high performance Black Series model could follow, with the former using the new Mercedes 4.7-liter twin-turbo V8 making 430-hp, while the Black Series could make use of AMG's new 5.5-liter V8, delivering as much as 563-hp.

That looks good, I'm psyched for the inline 4 turbo engine, that should attract a younger crowd to Mercedes.

This looks very good, i like the rear window, much more aggressive look compared to the likes of the CLC and previous gen C class coupe.

The 4 cylinder turbo is very much welcomed I think.... I think you cannot get 4matic with the 4 cylinder though... May get the 2012 C300 then

Post new C-Class

I think it is now completely safe to say that MBZ has surpassed the BMW 3 in the way of beauty and elegance. And now with the upgraded direct injection 3.5 Litre V6 we have lots to be happy about. Bravo Mercedes (again)

In my opinion I think it looks less aggressive, but I love the interior.

It looks like a baby CL, I'd definitely be interested in one as a CPO car (I don't buy new... I just can't stomach the depreciation.)

Great job yet again Mercedes!

I also like that there's an actual B-pillar which can save your life when you get t-boned by an SUV.
