Mercedes E500 Coupe - Latest W212 E-class in Abu Dhabi!

Even amongst all the gorgeous cars in the city, this latest W212 Mercedes Benz E500AMG stood out! I spotted this at Khalidiyah. Nice profile, great looking front, and a super evolution of the E-class "big small eyes" (as the chinese describe it!) nose :-)

Updated! Thanks to YJ for noting that it is in fact a ... Coupe!

Predecessor Mercedes-Benz W211

Wikipedia history ... The Mercedes-Benz E-Class is a range of executive-size cars manufactured by Mercedes-Benz in various engine and body configurations. The E initially stood for Einspritzung, (German for fuel injection); a new feature in volume production vehicles at the time that the E-Class first appeared, with the E as a suffix to the engine nomenclature (e.g. 220E) in the 1950s. It was not until the launch of the facelifted W124 that the E was used as a prefix (i.e. E220) and the model referred to officially as the E-Class (or E-Klasse). ... Codenamed W212, the next-generation E-Class will arrive for the 2010 model year, with the estate version (codenamed S212) expected for 2011. It was also decided upon to rest the CLK-Class name in favour of selling it as an E-class coupe.
