Now that’s more like it. Mercedes position as an engine manufacturer means we get to see their name on more than one car. This one though, this is their baby. I think this car looks leagues better than McLaren’s car. That, I think, is due to the front end looking fairly normal compared to the […]


This week’s AMG Monday Morning Wake-Up Call footage comes from the 2012 WannaGOFAST Georgia Half-Mile Shootout. The star of this video is an E63 AMG Wagon that starts off with a race against a heavily tuned BMW E90 3 Series. After that, it goes toe-to-toe against a wicked-quick V8 Mazda Miata.

2007 Weistec Mercedes-Benz G55 AMG - Fastest G55 in the World Home

The Mercedes-Benz G-Class doesn’t need to be fast to be cool, but extra horsepower doesn’t hurt, either, so when it comes to cool off-roaders, a G-Class in AMG guise is the R-134a of SUVs. Weistec Engineering has taken a 2007 G55 AMG and increased its cool factor even more by creating the fastest G55 in the […]


Have you ever met a really scary ex-con? I’m talking about the type of dude who’s missing an eye, but neglects wearing a patch because he doesn’t give a damn. Let’s call that guy “Moe”.

Stewart wastes no time in winding out the McLaren MP4-23′s Mercedes-Benz 2.4-liter V8 to its 19,000-rpm limit. You’ll hear magical sounds as the F1 […]


A 2004 Mercedes-Benz CL55 AMG recently annihilated Alex Roy’s previous cross-country driving record of 31 hours and 4 minutes. The record was broken by Ed Bolian, a guy who teaches Sunday school with his wife … he also sells Lamborghinis. Helping Bolian break the law was his co-driver Dave Black, and Dan Huang, the passenger/navigator. While the record has not been […]


…But not first place. The Indian GP yesterday saw reigning champ Sebastian Vettel clinch the F1 championship, his fourth in a row. Tires were an issue once again as the soft options suffered from early degradation affecting all drivers except Sebastian Vettel. Who, of course, qualified on the pole. The Mercedes-AMG Petronas cars were strong […]
