Ahead of the 2013 Detroit Auto Show comes a look at the facelifted 2014 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupe. The refreshed front end now features single-piece headlights and a more aggressive fascia. The quad-headlight look isn’t completely lost as there are unique LED running lights that visually split the headlights into two. New LED taillights and a reshaped rear fascia are tossed into the exterior enhancements. The interior’s got minor changes such as a slight redesign of the steering wheel and incorporating Direct Select lever instead of the console-mounted shift lever from the previous years. Tech upgrades include the Stereo Multi-Purpose Camera, Active Parking Assist and a 360-degree camera for a bird’s-eye view when parking.
Brabus never ceases to amaze us and with their rendition of the 2010 Mercedes-Benz E-Class, we’re still rolling our tongues off the floor. Brabus is offering a 462-hp upgrade for the 382-hp 6.1L V8 Mercedes-Benz E550. That allows for 0 to 62 mph sprint in just 4.7 seconds with a top speed of 191 mph.
As for its exterior, the front, back and side aprons all received welcomed enhancements, giving this tuned version of the E-Class a more aggressive and refined look. Brabus Monoblock alloys are available in varius designs and in sizes varying from 17 to 20 inches.

Last year, BMW unveiled their 5-series Security models that were built to protect and Mercedes-Benz has now followed up with the E-Guard, a more “heavy-duty” E-Class that’s sure to protect you from a DM51 hand-grenade. The standard windows are taken away for bulletproof polycarbonate glazing and these run-flat tires are designed to stay put under speeds of up to 149 mph.
The Mercedes-Benz E-Guard will go on sale in Europe this April with prices starting at 45,000 Euros ($58,102 USD).
