Remind me to never watch the clip below in my car. Doing so will only make it jealous and me sick at the thought of how much cooler the Mercedes-Benz CLA45 AMG is than my daily driver. I have a small sedan, but it’s not nearly as attractive or as fast as the German pint-size […]


It’s safe to say the upcoming S63 AMG Coupe is already a motivator. I can just hear people hustling to put in their orders for it at dealerships around the world. Its roadster sibling, the SL63, will be exercising so that it tops its corporate sibling’s output by creating 585 horsepower and 664 pound-feet of torque for the 2015 model year.

2015 S63 AMG 4MATIC Coupe

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.

Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Black Series

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.

Brabus CLA45 AMG

The new Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class has been doing well — so well, in fact, that the company has added a third shift at the Hungarian factory that builds them in order to meet demand for the sedan. Brabus has taken the baby Benz and done what it does so well: tune it.


There are certain things to which we all look forward: that unnecessarily slow walk to the front door after a great first date, the next episode of Top Gear, pay day … and AMG converting a standard Mercedes-Benz into a velvet-wrapped sledgehammer.

Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG Jumping in Snow

What you are about to watch is fantasy; not because it features pristine white and powdery slopes; not because it looks like the ideal getaway with friends. No, the video you are about to see is fantasy because it shows an SUV as expensive as the Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG ($135,700+) actually being driven off-road! Gasp!

2013 Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Edition 507 Slider

This reminds me of a movie biker gang when it revs its engines outside of (what I’m assuming is) Harrods. Fortunately for everyone around, there are no switchblades, chains or broken beer bottles — although the constant police sirens give the video an air of danger.

Mercedes-Benz C250, AMG Line, Avantgarde, Diamantsilber metallic

Aluminum is a long-time sweetheart of the auto industry.  It’s been used in the Audi Space Frame for years.  Jaguar crafts its vehicles out of the lightweight metal.  Even the new Range Rover is made from it.  On the domestic front, Ford will make its best-selling F-150 pickup out of aluminum starting with the 2015 […]


The world has been waiting for the 2015 S-Class Coupe for quite a while.  And now that it’s finally here, it’s hard to pay attention to it…as a whole. Mercedes-Benz can blame its own active curve tilting function. “The vehicle leans into bends much like a motorcyclist, thereby reducing the lateral acceleration acting on the […]
