This two-door coupe has a long, shapely and assertively styled bonnet. It has bold front lights, LED daytime lights and a purposeful large grille. That classic coupe shape swoops down gracefully towards the rear, which has narrow brake lights and large twin exhaust pipes. It sits on 20-inch alloys.

The cockpit is just as studied looking, with a large transmission tunnel which is home to eight driver function buttons that are laid out in a V shape. There is a wing-shaped dashboard, stylised air vents and centre console with AMG drive unit.

There are low-slung, sculpted electronically controlled AMG Sports seats and an AMG-performance leather multifunction steering wheel, which is fully adjustable.

The car is equipped with the COMAND Online multimedia system. Based around a dashboard-mounted 8.4-inch colour display, the system offers 3D map navigation, in-car internet access, hands-free capabilities, a wealth of music and video entertainment options, and an AUX jack and Bluetooth.

This car is finished in a striking two-tone red pepper and black Nappa leather.

The safety features on this car are substantial, as you would expect from Mercedes and include; multiple airbags, driver knee airbag, side airbag, side impact protection, traction control, cruise control, onboard computer, stop and start system, EPS, ABS, remote central locking, immobiliser and remote controlled alarm.
