Spyshots: 2011 Mercedes E-Klasse Cabrio, Top Down
Otherwise, not much more information surfaced since then. Apart from the very important fact that the car did not star at the 2009 Frankfurt Auto Show, as previously believed. Caught in the excitement caused by the release and presentation of the SLS AMG, Mercedes Benz pushed the release of the new cabrio to the now more likely Geneva Auto Show in 2010.
The front of the car features the new grille design adopted by Mercedes-Benz, with the headlights sourced from the coupe version extending to the upper edges of the wings, while the nose of the E-Klasse points to the ground. The rear of the cabrio is likely to wear the taillights featured on the coupe as well.
As we said the cabrio was expected to make its entrance at the Frankfurt Auto Show, but got sidetracked. However, the car does look like it is in its final testing stages, so an official launch may be just around the corner.
