Just follow these two simple steps, and then you can boast to all your friends that you are cooler than they are.
No matter what line of work you’re in, remember this: if your boss doesn’t appreciate the work you do, there’s bound to be someone out there who does … even if you’re a location scout for Mercedes-Benz commercials and that someone is an attractive space alien. Don’t roll your eyes. I’m trying to cheer you up on a Monday.
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.
Whenever I watch television from the 1980s, I almost always end up saying, “Ugh … the clothing from back then looks awful!” (I’m talking about you, “Golden Girls”!) Couple loud colors and big shoulder pads with puffy, teased hairstyles, and the Reagan era comes across as an optical atrocity. Some of the cars of the […]
It’s true that you learn something new everyday. I just discovered that I was misinformed about commercials. How silly of me to think that television ads are typically for products that are necessary and/or affordable to the vast majority of consumers. This mid-2000s spot from Mercedes-Benz for the SLR McLaren taught me it’s worth alerting […]
Ladies and gentlemen, please bow your heads and join Chris Harris in a moment of silence. The introduction of the 2015 C-Class means its W204 iteration is not long for this world. In departing showroom floors, it will also take the naturally aspirated 6.2-liter V8 C63 AMG along with it. Mercedes’s next-generation hot rod is […]
Owner says, “It gets driven often. It’s driven hard.” When the owner of this Mercedes-Benz 300SL was 10 years old, he assembled a plastic model of a Gullwing Benz and said to himself, “Someday I’m going to have one of these things.” Thirty years later, his dreams became a reality, and the folks at eGarage have […]
You know those Santa’s Workshop-themed Mercedes-Benz commercials you see every 10 minutes on TV? Brabus Classic is the real-life version of that, the restoration arm of the famous Mercedes-Benz tuner. Not only does Brabus’ Classic division restore vintage Benz’ brought in by customers, but also it buys old Benz’, restores and sells them. Did you […]
For the Benz addict who lives on the classics section of our forum, this story is for you. If you live in SoCal and haven’t heard of JG Francis’s Mercedes Motoring in Glendale, it appears you have a new field trip to take. JG is a meticulous Mercedes collector/restorer who scours the planet for old […]
If you ever lay your eyes on a Mercedes-Benz 300SL Gullwing in person, chances are it is a show car you’re admiring at Pebble Beach or a museum. Cars like the 300SL are meant for preservation … they are the automotive version of Joan Rivers’ face. The Gullwing you will see in the video throws […]
