    Mercedes-Benz’s rival to the BMW X6, the all-new GLE-Class Coupe (essentially an M-Class with coupe-like styling), is set to make a debut at next month’s 2015 Detroit Auto Show, but it won’t be debuting in just standard flavor as the Mercedes-AMG division will also be showing off its own versions of the coupe-like crossover. We say versions as Mercedes-AMG will be launching both a high-performance variant as well as a less extreme 'AMG Sport' variant. It’s the former that’s featured in our latest spy shots.
