I get the feeling that when Autoblog tested the Mercedes-Benz S550 Coupe, the Billy Joel song “Just the Way You Are” was playing through its speakers. In the site’s review of the S63 AMG Coupe, it basically tells the less-powerful two-door, “Don’t go changing to try and please me.” Autoblog seems to love it just the way it is. That’s not to say the publication hates the S63, though. See what I mean after the jump.
Mansory, surprisingly, didn’t go all freaky with the M1000, which is based on the new Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG, and left the exterior rather subdued. That’s a good thing because there’s 1,000 horsepower under the hood, making this sedan one of the best sleepers ever.
We all have our own unique ways of celebrating major accomplishments. Some of us indulge in a fancy meal at our favorite restaurant after getting a graduate school acceptance letter. Others go out and buy a pricey gadget as a personal gift for landing a huge promotion. Mercedes-Benz builds its own trophies.
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.
That didn’t take long. It was only April when we spotted a development mule version of the Mercedes-Benz MLC/ML Coupe. The crew at AMG quickly got its wrench-turning hands on it and created what you see in the spy shots: the MLC63/ML63 AMG Coupe.
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.
