Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Black Series

Going out on a low note isn’t such a bad thing. Especially when that note is as low and sonorous as that played by the hand-built V8 of the Mercedes-Benz AMG 6.3 vehicles. Yes, 2014 is the end of an era. The 6.2-liter M156 and M159 units will soon go the way of the dodo, but don’t worry; twin-turbo 5.5L engines have started taking their spots, and the similarly blown 4.0L mill for the next-generation C63 should prove to be a worthy successor. Perhaps in the future those eight-bangers will make a list as revered as the one after the jump.

In his review, James covers tech-features, a breakdown of the different engine options, and the driving dynamics of the beloved mid-size […]


These guys seriously hit the nail on the head with this quote. “Hot rod wagons are a nasty fetish to a very particular group of people, just like fantasy football or horse pornography. Mercedes knows they aren’t going to sell a billion E63 Wagons in America, but they’re making a very particular group go nuts. […]

This week’s AMG Monday Morning Wake-Up Call footage comes from the 2012 WannaGOFAST Georgia Half-Mile Shootout.

The E63 hustles down […]
