Even while they’re standing still, it’s obvious that the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG and 300SL, with their long hoods, short decks and gullwing doors, share some attractive genes. The video after the jump makes it clear that they also have similar voices.
A typical picture is worth 1,000 words. This week’s picture for “Wallpaper Wednesday” may be worth an entire novel. Think about it: if you are committed, you can finish a good book in about a week. This photo is worthy of about a week’s worth of constant staring, which makes it perfect for your desktop wallpaper.
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.
Heads up guys. This is the day where you’re love of automobiles finally connects to your raging passion for Korean Pop music. The girls have taste. Let’s just sidestep the general lunacy of K-Pop music videos. Everyone breathing air right now has likely seen the Gangnam Style, so you at least have an idea of […]
Is it wrong to like this? Is it bad to have feelings of approval towards an SLS that has been wrapped, not just in gold foil, but rose gold foil? I don’t know what’s wrong with me. That’s a color that belongs on an engagement ring, not a car. And yet, here I am oogling Tyga’s […]
In this week’s Wallpaper Wednesday, we’ve got a 2011 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG doing its best Karate Kid pose … or is it imitating a peacock by doing a mating pose?
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 […]
Now here’s a color I haven’t seen yet. The first SLS AMG Black series I saw was this luminous yellow one at the LA Auto Show. I though it looked good there, but this Yosemite Blue is my new favorite. They should just put this color on everything. The SLS. The E-Class. The CLA. Hell, […]
Obviously, 600 horsepower isn’t good enough. When you have people dropping twin-turbos on Lamborghinis and hitting 260 mph in a mile, a regular old V8 just doesn’t cut it. No, what you need is a Mercedes that craps fire and has a hunger for human flesh. Which, incidentally, is exactly what we have here. The video […]
If you’re into the idea of passing through the pearly gates, you probably have a concept of how you would like to cross through them. One category of people I know would like to enter them while being greeted by the smiling faces of friends and family. Another category of people I know would prefer […]
