"2 tons of German steel"

The E Class, at least the W211 I'm familiar with, has aluminium bonnet, wings, and boot lid *. So the front of the car is nice and soft, for more comfortable collisions.

The passenger cell and doors are very tough steel. I've seen drill bits stopped dead by the inner layer of steel.

* Look at me, writing in British. LOL.
