The Frankfurt International Motor Show (IAA) of September 1991 marked the premiere of an elegant cabriolet model: this four-seater vehicle with fabric top formed part of the 124 model series, renamed the E-Class in 1993, and was available from the spring of 1992, initially as the 300 CE-24. This cabriolet revived the long tradition of four-door open-top vehicles in the brand history of Mercedes-Benz after a hiatus of some twenty years: production of its predecessors in this body style in the S-Class, the 280 SE Cabriolet and 280 SE 3.5 Cabriolet (W 111), having ceased in 1971. In the intervening period Mercedes-Benz had continued to maintain the culture of open-top driving with the two-door SL sports cars. The success of the A 124, of which 33,592 examples had been produced by 1997, was followed seamlessly by the CLK Cabriolets of the model series A 208 (1998 to 2003) and A 209 (2003 to 2010) as well as by the E-Class Cabriolets of the model series A 207 (2010 to 2017) and A 238 (since … [Read more...] about 2021 Mercedes E-Class Coupe, Cabriolet Videos Show The Updated Design

Anyone familiar with Liberty Walk knows some of the company’s offerings can get pretty crazy, but this upfit for the Prius is rather mild. In fact, it might even slot into our definition of artfully as mentioned above in our mashed potatoes metaphor. This is strictly an appearance package – the primary mission for the Prius, after all, is fuel economy over all else – but it doesn’t include massive fender flares or a bonkers wide body stance. An aggressive front fascia with side skirts and a diffuser-infused rear fascia constitute the “light” body kit, with the full kit adding a modest spoiler to the decklid. … [Read more...] about Toyota Prius Gets Liberty Walk Body Kit Because Why Not?
