A good way to distinguish the GLE Coupé and the GLC Coupé is the line that runs down the side. On the GLE it runs through the door handles, on the GLC it runs underneath. So you understand that it was even a bit difficult for us to say with certainty that this is a GLE or a GLC. The answer lies in the air intakes on the hood – so this is a GLE Coupé. Or at least most of a GLE.
The police found this Mercedes without doors along the road near the North Brabant village of Geffen, in the municipality of Oss. The car had come to a halt due to an unknown fault along the road and had to be towed. According to DTV News told the driver he was on his way to the painter to have new doors put on the car – the doors had been stolen before. A believable story at this point in time – they really steal everything that is loose and stuck.
Can you drive without doors?
The news item from DTV News says nothing about a fine. We can also find nothing about a fine for driving without doors. For example, the doors of a Jeep Wrangler are easy to disassemble. However, you can be fined for not having proper exterior mirrors. The driver was therefore actually in violation, although we can imagine that the police also thought that the driver had enough bad luck.
