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.
Fast sedans wearing the letters AMG are nothing new, but this 10-Second E63 is just redonkulous. Yes, that’s a technical term.
This happens every time I watch a Mercedes-Benz race a Mustang. The Mercedes says goodbye to the starting line like a player leaving the scene of a one-night stand. The Mustang leaves the starting line screaming and protesting like someone being arrested on an episode of “Cops”.
The assembled cars took turns tearing down the strip the way kids take turns with a swing set at recess, and it’s safe to say everyone felt ten years old.
I’ve heard that women are attracted to power. The stock Gallardo Spyder in this video must have a lady’s name because it wants to take its top off when Shardul’s modded 2003 Mercedes-Benz E55 AMG flexes its engine’s muscles.
When in Rome, do as the Romans do. When in London, do as the Arabs do, especially where supercars are concerned.
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.
Somehow Weistec Engineering has figured out a way to fire bullets without using guns. You can see an example of that when you watch the Mercedes-Benz CLK63 AMG Black Series blast down the quarter-mile, through your heart, and into the record books after the jump.
Brabus is like that father you see in movies that is never satisfied with with his son’s accomplishments. Mercedes-Benz plays the part of the hapless adopted child. “Look! I made the new E63 AMG. It cranks out 550 horsepower in regular trim and 577 in S-Model spec.” Without looking up from its newspaper, Brabus responds with, “Heh, it could make more.”
The 1986 Mercedes-Benz 300CE 6.0 AMG, better known as the AMG Hammer, is proof that you should never encourage Mercedes-Benz or AMG to enter a gun battle … because if you do, you will end up with the atomic bomb you see above. On second thought, crank up the encouragement.
