Spy photos of Mercedes E-Class Convertible hit the web

Back in the old days it was a hell of a lot easier for all the automakers to do their job quietly. Automakers could test drive prototypes of future models absolutely calmly, without the fear that some dastardly hidden photographer of some newspaper or the competition was spying on them. Well, nowadays technology has evolved, the internet is available worldwide and cell phones have better and better cameras integrated. Because of this, it is extremely hard to hide an upcoming model of which you are undergoing test drives. It is almost certain that someone will see the prototype being test driven, take photos of it, upload the photos online and thus, all the world finds out details.

This is the exact case here, as some guy managed to take a set of photos of the new Mercedes Benz E-Class Convertible in an underground parking lot in Bremen, Germany with his iPhone. And when you think that the iPhone does not even have the best quality integrated camera of all mobile phones.

The new Mercedes Benz E-Class Convertible features a fabric top as well as a four seat layout. The Mercedes Benz E-Class Convertible will get the same range of four, six and eight cylinder engines as the sedan, estate and coupe versions of the Mercedes Benz E-Class. The main attractions are considered to be a top of the range 5.0 liter V8 gasoline engine and an environmental friendly four cylinder diesel engine. The Mercedes Benz E-Class Convertible is based on the new Mercedes Benz E-Class Coupe and will replace the Mercedes Benz CLK Convertible in the range of models of the German automaker. The Mercedes Benz E-Class Convertible will have serious competitors, like the Audi A5 Cabrio. In the first half of 2010 the first potential buyers will be able to get their hands on the Mercedes Benz E-Class Convertible.
