When the 2010 Mercedes-Benz E-Class goes on sale, buyers will have the option to enhance the car’s appearance with the AMG Sports Package. The package can be added to all engine configurations and includes some interior and exterior tidbits that are not available individually.
Outside, the E-class wears a new body kit sporting more aggressive side skirts with revised front and rear aprons. The wheels are 18-inches in diameter with 245-series tires up front and 265-series tires in the rear. The brakes calipers are painted silver and wear the Mercedes-Benz logo and the discs are cross-drilled. The car is also 15mm lower all around as part of the included “Direct Control” suspension.
On the inside, the seat contours are optimized to provide more lateral support when cornering. They are clothed in a combination of microfiber and man-made leather. The floor mats bear the AMG logo and the pedals are stainless steel with rubber studs. Nappa leather is used on the three-spoke AMG sports steering wheel and also on the gear lever. The package includes standard paddle shifters on the back of the steering wheel as well.
This announcement is currently only for European models. However, expect the same or similar package to be available on the U.S.-spec car when it launches in July.
