Get ready for the Geneva Motor Show in March, where the all-new 2012 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe will make its debut. This is the first coupe in the C-Class, and now the German automaker has released some details on it. They revealed two models: the C250 and the C350.
The first one will actually be the base offering in the States, and it features a 1.8 direct injection turbo-charged four-cylinder engine, capable of putting out 201 horsepower and 229 lb-ft of torque. It will need about 7.1 seconds to reach the 60 mph threshold, and the maximum speed is 130 mph.
The C350 model is a little spicier, with a 3.5-liter V6 power unit which delivers 302 horsepower and 273 lb-ft of torque. The 0-60 mph sprint is reduced to approximately 5.9 seconds. Both versions are coupled to a seven-speed automatic gearbox.
