      Still don't know why you guys are complaining about this car, this is the first MB (S class inclusive) in this generation that looks good even with basic Avantgarde model. The interior even looks better that the E sedan although they are 99% similar, but it really suites the coupe sleek design, and I love the new air vents.

      I'm 100% sure that the cabrio will steel the show :), just wait for it !!

          This shot makes me realize how big the greenhouse is for a coupe, and how the third window is pretty unavoidable...

            Correct, there would not be another way with this design. Without that third side window, they would have to remodel the shape of pretty much the entire car. And making the rear side window a window that can't be opened (like the 6er coupe for instance) would defy the purpose of the pillarless design.

            If you squint it looks excellent :D

              The roof and those slim pillars (no b-pillar) are engineered to withstand ten times the weight of the car.

                People should just black out the side windows, that will make the third side window near invisible (y)

                Not to mention, blacked out window look good!

                  Boy I dislike Wagener as a person...what an utter vainglorious, pompous self conceit individual he is. "Best design team in the world" "Project one will be most beautiful car ever" "Amg GT will be most beautiful Mercedes ever" "perfect proportions" "sensual this, sensual that"

                  Even a design biography book from someone who has a very short and infant career is beyond me.

                  /rant off.

                      Ha! Who would have thought, I am not disliking it in that side profile pic.

                      If MB had given it some nice wheel arches it could have been a looker.

                      Is the AMG variant expected to appear at some point? That one might solve all this car problems.

                        The S-Coupe utterly destroys the E.

                        Period.

                          They are dumb as f*ck. Beside they know already and confess that made same mistake with previuos model.

                          Were you trying to prove his point? Look where the window line ends in relation to the rear wheel on the S-class compared to the E-class.

                            The E coupe is looking absolutely great, fine in Mercedes-Benz coupe tradition. Sure, it's no S class coupe, but that one is out of this world :)

                              Its like a Kardashian of the auto design world. Just waiting for the selfie in a Maybach with his tits out.

                                Mercedes design ethic blends hot and cool

                                bf2150b8c9d93ccb7f438c45c2cd38c8.
                                Wagener: "It’s about beauty and in the end it’s about the sex appeal in the design that makes cars so desirable." Photo credit: Glenn Triest

                                DETROIT -- Mercedes-Benz’ top designer said the brand’s design philosophy follows two simple principles.

                                “It should be cool,” Gorden Wagener said at the 2017 Automotive News World Congress today, “and it should be hot.”

                                While those attributes are typically seen as opposites, he explained, both can coexist in designs.

                                “Being hot is about falling in love,” he said. “It’s about beauty and in the end it’s about the sex appeal in the design that makes cars so desirable.”

                                As for the cool side, Wagener said it’s the reaction that someone gets when they see something that grabs their interest the first time.

                                Wagener said Mercedes-Benz has to apply this philosophy to every touch point of the brand, not just cars, including exhibition booths, showroom design and corporate identity.

                                Wagener said that “design time” is in 2025, not 2017 meaning that designers like himself are always thinking in the future.

                                “Today, it’s about, as far as I understood, about the future and that’s actually the right thing for us as designers, as we are living into the future,” Wagener said.

                                At last year’s Paris auto show, Mercedes-Benz gave the public its first look at the EQ subbrand, which is scheduled to debut in 2020 and ultimately include 10 electric-drive vehicles. The Generation EQ concept vehicle was a smooth-surface, futuristic take on the electric vehicle -- notably modern, but not jarring.

                                “EQ will have its own design language, Wagener said.

                                At the same time, he noted, the EQ line has to share Mercedes-Benz’s values and core philosophies but with a different execution, much like the AMG and Maybach lines.

                                “I’m truly convinced that the customer wants a beautiful product,” Wagener said. “He does not want a strange looking product just to say ‘I’m electric.’”

                                Wagener says the 2018 Mercedes-Benz E class coupe, shown at the Detroit auto show this week, represents version 2.0 of the automaker’s “sensual purity” design language.

                                The design language started with vehicles such as the S-class coupe and the E class sedan, which was shown at last year’s Detroit show.

                                A refreshed S class is expected this summer, but Wagener doesn’t think Mercedes needs to make major changes with the flagship sedan, noting the vehicle’s success.

                                “I think the car is very perfect as it is,” he said.

                                  Get on with the next SL and the SUVs, that is where the HELP is needed.
