Carlsson presented its latest kit for the 2010 Mercedes-Benz E-Class which will be officially unveiled at the Tuning World Bodensee in Friedrichshafen, between 30 April and 3 May 2009.
As you can see from the photo, released by the tuning company, the new sedan received some serious modifications such as: a completely new front apron with vertically mounted daytime running LEDs and stainless steel grille, new front fenders with air inlets, side sills, a new rear air diffuser with integrated 4-pipe exhaust system and a discreet rear spoiler.
According to the manufacturer the whole aerodynamic package is made of polyurethane (PU-RIM).
The vehicle also features the C-Tronic Suspension, and can be lowered with up to 42 millimeters. Inside we have brushed aluminium pedals, new floormats as well as a completely new interior wearing the Carlsson logo.
Under the hood, the tuning company also offers some improvements: the E250 CDI BlueEfficiency receives an extra 40 hp (available on the market from June), the E350 CDI BlueEfficiency gets an extra 46 hp (available on the market from July) while the E500 with the help of the CM50K compressor receives an extra 55 hp. The kit is completed by the 20 inch Revo Carlsson wheels.
The new 2010 Mercedes-Benz E-Class is set to continue the tradition that has been in place for over half a century – becoming an acknowledged innovator in the field of safety. To achieve what its predecessors had managed to attained, the 2010 Mercedes-Benz E-Class is coming with the latest assistance and protection systems – their conception and development were derived from what actually transpires during accidents.
With these technologies on board, the 2010 Mercedes-Benz E-Class has turned into an "intelligent partner" who has the ability to see, feel, and react reflexively in critical situations. Moreover, these technologies allow the 2010 Mercedes-Benz E-Class to, when needed, act independently to prevent accidents or mitigate their effects. Thus, the latest version of the Mercedes-Benz E-Class takes cares of the safety not only of its occupants, but also of other road users.
For instance, the new Mercedes-Benz E-Class is the first car in the world that features headlamps that could adapt to the traffic situation, and then respond automatically in order to avoid bothering drivers of oncoming vehicles.
It features an optional Adaptive Main Beam Assist system that employs a camera on the windscreen to detect oncoming traffic and vehicles moving ahead. The system could control the headlamps so their beams would not reach the other vehicle – thereby attaining the best possible road illumination in a certain situation. Likewise, beams of the dipped headlamp could be extended from 65 meters to up to 300 meters. When the system detects that the road ahead is clear, it would perform a smooth transition to high beam.
