The bulky disguise on its hood suggests the car will get new air intakes to let the engine breathe better. The rear bumper and tail pipe will also be redesigned along with the regular E-Class’ new features like one-piece headlights, new tail lights, a more upright standing grille and revised rear door lines.
Performance specifications aren’t expected to change given that this isn’t a complete redesign. The car will likely stay close to its 518 hp and 516 lb-ft torque rating along with its 200-mph top speed, though a small bump is likely.
Apart from the new air intakes, which would only help marginally, Merc is likely to make its car a little brawnier to come closer to the new BMW M5. It won’t be hard to do, especially after switching to its 5.5-liter biturbo engine.
