Mercedes is running a video contest on its Facebook page where 10 fans compete for the chance to drive a new C-Class coupe for a week.

Entrants can submit a 1-2 minute video to the Mercedes-Benz Facebook page. In the video, contestants are to tell Mercedes what they and the new Benz will get up to during their week-long time together.

Mercedes will pick the 10 most creative entries and loan them a brand new C-Class Coupe. The car comes with a $2,000 check to help winners accomplish the C Class quest of their dreams. The ten winners are to take videos of their time with the Benz and the company will post the results on its Facebook page.

The C-Class got a facelift and two new engines for the 2012 model. The new car has new LED daytime running lights and LED taillights. The bumpers and grill have also been replaced to give the car a classier, slightly more more understated look.

The first of the new engines is available in the C250. The 1.8 liter turbocharged four cylinder engine puts out 201 horsepower. The new small engine is a sign of Mercedes' dedication to fuel efficiency, and the C250's 31 highway MPG is the fruit of many a Mercedes engineer's labors.

The other new engine is a 302 horsepower 3.5 liter V6 which will come in the C350. In spite of the more powerful engine's bigger size, it only gets two less combined MPG than the four cylinder. It's important though to keep in mind that these are only the government fuel economy numbers. In the hands of a light footed hypermiler, we expect the C250 would sip a fair amount less gas than its more powerful big brother.

Both motors will come with Mercedes' latest take on fuel saving direct injection technology. Mercedes boasts its new systems can manage a spritz of fuel down to a tenth of a millisecond.

Entries for the Facebook contest close on October 14 and the winners will be announced some time after that.
