No surprises here, the 2011 Mercedes E-Class Convertible looks just like the Coupe sans roof. These shots come from a European trademark filing and reveal a handsome, C-Class based four-seat convertible.

Expect the Convertible to share Coupe's V6 and 388 HP V8 engines and its uninspiring driving dynamics. While the new E-Class Sedan is a welcome return to Mercedes values of old, the Coupe feels and, inside at least, looks cheap. Still desperate to own one? You'll have to wait till early 2010 for the privilege. [via CarScoop]
