The new E 400 variant of the E-Class – available as a sedan, coupe or convertible – comes equipped with a turbocharged 3.0-liter V-6 engine that produces 329 horsepower. This model replaces the V-6 E 350 coupe and convertible and V-8 E 550 sedan from previous model years.

Bank Vault on Wheels

The best handling, best all-around value Mercedes makes. The undefeated middle-weight champion of the world for 40 years. This is the”Comfort” model without the stiff “Sport”suspension and “Rubber-band” tires.
