If you were in one of these hybrids and pulled up next to a Prius, you could roll down your window and shove their smug smirk right up their tailpipes because out of the two of you, you have the more environmental car.
This is the first time since 1998 (the year Mercedes dropped its inline-six engines from the SL lineup) that the U.S. has seen an SL roadster with a six-cylinder engine.
We’re bringing you spy shots of the Mercedes-Benz MLC63 AMG (or ML-Coupe AMG or M-Class Coupe AMG — the jury’s still out on that one) straight from an undisclosed spot near the manufacturer’s proving grounds.
Brabus is hard at work developing its version of the Smart ForTwo. The hotted-up city car should have more aggressive bodywork, including a bigger grille, a different front bumper and twin exhaust pipes.
Mercedes has found a gap to fill between the 333-horsepower C400 and the 450+/- horsepower C63. The undisguised C450 Sport AMG we spotted, and its 367-horsepower twin-turbo 3.0L V6 should fit within the wheel wells nicely.

Talk about being in the right place at the right time. Youtuber Shmee recently came across a Brabus 700, a tuned version of the Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 6X6, in front of a London dealership. The one in the clip below is literally all wrapped up for a launch event in England before it’s shipped off to Miami to embark on the Gumball 3000 rally.
It’s fitting that the man in the clip below is called Shmee. That’s probably the sound he made when he first put the hammer down in the Gemballa-modified Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren. The legendary tuner of Porsches tweaked the hypercar’s ECU, bumping the 5.4-liter supercharged V8′s output up to 666 horsepower. Of course, it also customized […]
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.
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.
