The Mercedes C-Class Sports Coupe in 2000, some four months after the start of production of the C-Class sedan is presented. Since then, the Mercedes C-Class Sports Coupe is considered a unique model variant. "The name is in this fascinating sport coupe car program," says Professor Jürgen Hubbert, member of DaimlerChrysler AG. Available is the Mercedes C-Class Sports Coupé with different diesel and gasoline engines. The base engine is the Mercedes C 160 Sport Coupe with 122 hp, followed by the C 180 Sport Coupe with 143 hp and the Sports Coupé C 200 C (compressor) with 163 hp. The top of the range vehicle is the Mercedes C-Class Sports Coupe C 350 with its 272 hp 3.5-liter V6 engine. The C 350 Sport Coupe accelerates in 6.4 seconds from 0 - 100 km / h and the top speed is electronically limited to 250 km / hr. The C 350 Sport Coupe is available with a six-speed manual or continuously variable automatic seven-speed 7G-TRONIC. So much for the petrol. Now we come to the two MB sports coupe diesel models C 200 CDI and C 220 CDI with 122 hp and 150 hp. Both cars accelerate from 0 to 100 km / h mark in 11.7 and 10.3 seconds, and reach a top speed of 208 and 224 km / h (manufacturer's data). The average consumption of the C 200 CDI Sport Coupe is 6.5 liters per 100 km, the C 220 CDI Sports Coupé indulges in for the same distance on average 6.6 liters of diesel. Both Mercedes sports coupe diesel models are optionally available with a manual 6-speed manual or 5-speed automatic. The brand-typical louvred radiator grille with the centrally placed star marks the Mercedes C-Class Sports Coupé clearly as a new member of the club of sporty Mercedes models. A characteristic feature of the all-new coupe design is also the high tail with its integrated spoiler and dark tinted panel between the taillights. Consciously put the Mercedes designers with this striking lines characters to emphasize the dynamic and progressive character of the Coupé even more and increase awareness of the Mercedes-Benz C-Class Sports Coupe. More transparency in the interior and an open-air experience provides the optionally available panoramic sunroof. It provides a continuous glass optics, from the windscreen to the rear spoiler. Compact dimensions and a lowered by ten millimeters compared to the sedan body shape the dynamic image of the Mercedes-Benz sports coupe in addition.
