Take a good look at Car Online’s scoop pictures of the next-gen Sports Coupe. Looks far too similar with the current C-Class Sport Coupe doesn’t it? Of course it does since Mercedes-Benz decided to save heap loads of money by adding the front end of the new C-Class (see here) in order to support the latest engines and dashboard to the “old” Sports Coupe chassis. We were never fans of the Sports Coupe’s appearance and we doubt if the new front end will make us change our mind.

Good news is that the new (or maybe shall we call it, facelifted?) Sports Coupe will get the 2008 C-Class’ engine range from the supercharged 156 Hp 1.8-litre up to the 272 Hp 3.5-litre V6 while Merc’s diesel line-up will start with a 136 Hp 2.2-litre unit and rise to a 224 Hp 3.0-litre engine. The 2008 Sports Coupe will most probably make its first appearance at the Geneva Motor Show in March 2008 with sales starting shortly after.

Mercedes-Benz Brabus Bullit

Published by on Sep 11th, 2007, No Comments

Over the past three decades Brabus has perfected the art of transplanting large and extremely powerful engines into the bodies of small cars. That path led to numerous world records and entries into the Guinness Book of World Records. The Brabus Bullit, built in small-series production based on the new Mercedes C-Class sedan, celebrates its world debut at the IAA 2007 as the ultimate wolf in sheep’s clothing.

At the heart of this supercar Brabus placed the Brabus SV12 S Biturbo engine. The implantation of the 6.3-liter engine into the confines of the W 204 series body is yet more proof for the superiority of Brabus know-how. The turbocharged twelve-cylinder engine delivers 720 bhp of superlative power and 974 lb-ft of superlative peak torque.

The performance figures for the Brabus Bullit place it into pole position in its class: The car sprints from 0 – 60 mph in just 3.8 seconds, reaches 124 mph after just 10.49 seconds and shatters the 186-mph (300 km/h) barrier after a mere 24.5 seconds. Top speed is more than 224 mph. There are only a very few super sports cars in the world that can hope to match these numbers.

All-in-all, this is one serious motorcar. Massive engine, massive brakes, massive power… any way you look at it, this thing is fast…

Foreign news sources are reporting that the Mercedes engineers are working on a 500hp C-class, which will set to compete against the upcoming M3 and the Audi RS4. They are also saying that the AMG version will get the typical AMG styling in the front, rear and side; as well as 19in alloy wheels. The engine will be a V8 that will be able to let out its rour with 4 exhaust pipes. This description sounds amazing, if it will look anything like the picture above, then Mercedes has certainly created a contender if not a winner.
