2018 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupe All-Terrain Rendered as Jacked-Up Grand Tourer

Now that the 2018 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupe is here, we want to take a bit of time to think about what would happen if the German carmaker decided to give the two-door the jacked-up treatment of the E-Class All-Terrain.

The pixel manipulation above serves as our inspiration, with digital artist X-Tomi having gifted the new E-Class Coupe with all the right visual elements.

In theory, the elegant two-door Merc shouldn't be suitable for rugged-look elements such as the SUV-like radiator grille of the All-Terrain. However, we can say that the contraption envisioned here doesn't just seem composed on a visual level, but would also make a lot of sense, at least in our book.

That's because one of the best parts of the Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupe is its... understated Grand Tourer nature. While most GTs are a display of speed and/or opulence, the latest member of the E-Class family doesn't look half as luxurious as its driving experience is, especially in the higher trims. And we mean that in a good way.

Well, the All-Terrain approach seen here comes to take the GT abilities of the car even further, as such a machine could easily be suitable for tons of scenarios.

And since AMG has been gifting SUVs with its V8s for years, taking the concept introduced by this render to the next level with the help of an Affalterbach-built motor would result in an unbelievably versatile experience.

We've noticed a few signs of the car industry heading towards a jacked-up sportscar trend over the past two years or so. Most such developments come from the aftermarket world, but Porsche is also rumored to be working on a Dakar glory-reviving model for the next-gen 911.

So now that Mercedes-Benz has finally decided to jump the lifted bandwagon, perhaps we could see the automaker offering such a lifted machine in the medium term.
