What’s this then? Until Mercedes does a full-on, AMG version of the E-Class Coupe, this is the quickest and most expensive one you can buy. Logic says that because it has a 3.0-litre, twin turbocharged V6 it should be called the E300. But that would be just too obvious. Mercedes has long-since given up giving its cars names that in any way relate to their engines, so the actual E300 has a 2.0-litre turbo – and because this car one-up from that, it’s called the E400. Easy. I guess it’s based on the E-Class saloon? Indeed it is, not like the old E-Class Coupe (which was actually based on the same platform as the old C-Class). The new car is thus bigger in basically every respect, and notably longer and wider than before.
