Lightbulb Spy Shots: 2012 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe caught uncloaked

Filed under: Spy Photos, Coupe, Mercedes-Benz, Luxury

2012 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe spy shots - Click above for high-res image gallery

Mercedes-Benz's redesigned 2011 C-Class will sprout an all-new coupe version, and our spy photographers have just captured a nearly production-ready prototype with no camouflage. In addition to the obvious removal of the rear doors, the coupe wears the new C-Class' slightly refreshed front fascia, featuring the quad-foglamp design that is quickly spreading across the entire Mercedes-Benz range. LED running lamps will no doubt be available on higher-end trim levels.

The most robust changes will likely be found inside the C-Class Coupe, where a new interior design will be on hand. We've seen spy shots of the coupe's new innards before, and the design mimics that of the larger E-Class range. Still, the current C-Class interior was beginning to feel a bit outdated, so any freshening is indeed welcomed.

Our spies report that powertrains will be carried over from the 2010 model, meaning we'll get the same pair of 3.0-liter and 3.5-liter V6 engines, producing 228 and 268 horsepower, respectively. Will we see a C63 AMG Coupe with the automaker's twin-turbo 5.5-liter V8 (or naturally aspirated 6.2-liter mill)? Mum's the word on that one, but consider our fingers crossed.

Judging by how complete this prototype looks (it's likely getting ready for its crash-test closeup), we'd expect to see the 2012 C-Class Coupe make its formal debut in either Detroit or Geneva next year. Scroll through our high-res gallery below to see the naked C Coupe for yourself.
