Perhaps in the future those eight-bangers will make a list as revered as the one after the jump.

Probably one of the more bizarre offerings from car related high end luxuries that I’ve seen. Here’s a novel idea from the marketing department at the AMG’s Driving Performance team, in which public reaction has so far been a hilarious and (almost) unanimous: “NO.” Best reaction so far: “Okay, someone at Mercedes came up with […]


Opt for the Mercedes-Benz CLS63 AMG S 4MATIC over the E63 AMG S 4MATIC and you’ll lose 2 inches of headroom in the back seat … you’ll also lose $6,730 … depending on who you are, that can be a bad night in Vegas, or a bad night in a back seat anywhere in the world. Size […]
