The Mercedes-Benz C-Class is no longer strapped down to a four-door design, and a new Mercedes ad shows how a coupe variant of the C-Class broke away from the sedan mold.
A Mercedes C63 AMG sedan chained down to a boulder floors it, and while one might expect something disastrous to happen, the four-door frees itself by shedding its rear doors. The remnants of the extra weight are left behind in shattered glass and twisted metal, but the coupe accelerates looking sleeker than ever. Predictably, this is one of those “don’t try this at home” moments…
The coupe is 100 pounds lighter without the rear doors, but still rides on the same 108.7-inch wheelbase as the sedan, and is only half an inch shorter. It also offers a sweeping panoramic sunroof, and with its new look, we think this new C-Class variant may be gunning straight for the BMW 3 Series coupe.
Do you think the Mercedes-Benz C-Class coupe has a fair chance of going head-to-head with the BMW 3 Series coupe?
