Spy-Shots of Cars

We’ve caught the Mercedes-Benz ML63 AMG for the first time undergoing some handling tests in southern Europe. The car is camouflaged at the front only, despite the fact that a refresh is underway that is as big as the one for the E-Class about a year ago.


2014-SL-CLASS-ROADSTER

It’s safe to say the upcoming S63 AMG Coupe is already a motivator. I can just hear people hustling to put in their orders for it at dealerships around the world. Its roadster sibling, the SL63, will be exercising so that it tops its corporate sibling’s output by creating 585 horsepower and 664 pound-feet of torque for the 2015 model year.


2015 S63 AMG 4MATIC Coupe

We’re living in great times for car enthusiasts. The artillery in the American horsepower wars is staggeringly powerful, Chrysler and Chevrolet are making V8-powered rear-wheel-drive sedans, and AMG is still twin-turbocharging V12s.


Brabus CLA45 AMG

The new Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class has been doing well — so well, in fact, that the company has added a third shift at the Hungarian factory that builds them in order to meet demand for the sedan. Brabus has taken the baby Benz and done what it does so well: tune it.

There are certain things to which we all look forward: that unnecessarily slow walk to the front door after a great first date, the next episode of Top Gear, pay day … and AMG converting a standard Mercedes-Benz into a velvet-wrapped sledgehammer.


1910-Blitzen-Benz-11-620x180

The Blitzen-Benz was the first car to go over 200 km/h and held the speed record for 10 years. If you watch the video after the jump, you can hear them crank it up at the 1:45 mark.


1.2 Sprinter 319 Bluetec 4X4 ( Panel van )

Vans are pretty awesome pieces of equipment — not minivans, but actual vans. They’re like motorhomes you can drive every day, and that’s pretty cool. All vans currently sold in the United States are two-wheel drive, but that’s about to change because when the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter BlueTEC 4×4 Diesel goes on sale in the U.S. […]


Four Mercedes-Benz Models that are Costly to Insure

The 2014 Mercedes-Benz CL550 4MATIC is the third most expensive new car to insure in America, with a nationally averaged $3,019 per-year premium. Driving a Mercedes-Benz represents success and accomplishment, but even the richest people get irked at high insurance rates. If you are privileged enough to own a 2014 Mercedes-Benz CL550 4MATIC, SLS AMG GT, G63 […]

The world has been waiting for the 2015 S-Class Coupe for quite a while.  And now that it’s finally here, it’s hard to pay attention to it…as a whole. Mercedes-Benz can blame its own active curve tilting function. “The vehicle leans into bends much like a motorcyclist, thereby reducing the lateral acceleration acting on the […]

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 […]
