The civilian-spec Mercedes SLS AMG is really more of a touring car than a track-tearing demon. Until you uncork the exhaust and put a diving board spoiler on the back and turn it into a GT3 machine. You’re going to want to turn those headphones up.
MV Agusta, that lovely little decades-old Italian motorcycle company that we all watch like a child taking his first pedals on a bike without the training wheels, has fallen over once again. The long-struggling bike company filed for the equivalent of Chapter 11 bankruptcy (a U.S. code) last week.
There are plenty of one-word adjectives that describe the interior of this $170K luxury vehicle. Comfortable, lavish, supple, sumptuous. Those all work, but only one adequately expresses the feeling from the backseat — powered. Yes, there are so many movable things inside the S63 that I didn’t know if I could film…
On the surface, Mercedes’ AMG division is still doing the same thing it has always done: sell the fastest and most expensive Mercedes available. But look a little deeper and you’ll see that something has changed.
AMG does a twin-turbo V6 C-Class Coupé with 362 hp, all-wheel drive and a nine-speed automatic for those who can’t afford a V8 C63. The new C43 Coupe will be followed by a whole series of “43" AMG models, because AMG is now the new BMW M.
Race car or 2,200 horsepower sun deck; which would you rather spend the weekend in? That’s the 41' Cigarette Racing Team SD GT3 boat and of course, its matching GT3 car. [Image: Mercedes-Benz]
In the continuing saga of German brands not knowing how to name things, Mercedes-Benz is dropping the “AMG Sport” moniker and putting those cars under the AMG banner. This means you can buy a real-deal (sort of) AMG car for less!
Some things bear repeating. For instance, I tend to harp on about how value trumps price and that you shouldn’t ever settle for the mundane just because it’s technically the safer choice. As if to prove my point, the automotive gods at Mercedes-Benz have created the AMG C63 S: the world’s most perfect expression of…
Demand for AMG’s monstrous twin-turbo V12 is so high that they are switching production to another factory.
Let's cut to the chase: This is a 563-hp Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG, those are its amazing doors, and I took this picture in Mexico while hanging out of the car at 50 mph. Safety is for pansies. Viva velocidad!Oh, the doors. They are quite possibly the coolest thing on the car, the one feature that makes…
Road & Track’s Performance Car of the Year test sounds like every gearhead’s dream. But nobody dreams of being stranded on the side of an abandoned country road with a tire pushed off its rim in a car that carries no spare and no tools.
Mercedes plans to raise the roof at the Frankfurt Motor show this year with the drop-top, super-hot S-Class Cabriolet.
We got our first glance at the 2017 Mercedes-AMG C63 Coupe yesterday. Now the company’s confirmed power, weight, and acceleration specs for both the Coupe and even-meaner S Coupe. They also shot some spectacular photos of the thing on track. It sure is one sexy looking Honda Accord. A 503 horsepower Honda Accord!
There are luxury cars, then there are German luxury cars, then there is the Mercedes Benz S-Class. It is a monolithic brick of teutonic engineering. The S-Class is a car designed to place your comfort above all else. These days it seems that everyone’s interpretation of a luxury car is to try and beat the BMW M5 at…
Mercedes-AMG is promising something fast is coming. Based on the soundtrack and basic common sense, that something will have a V8.
The formula is correct with this bawdy German duo. A well balanced chassis, drive to the rear wheels, and most importantly a potent V8 motor up front. Only thing missing was a sinuous stretch of tarmac, which we just so happened to find.
Since all of its 381 horsepower debuted here at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, I’ve been completely speechless. All I can tell you is that she pops and bangs like there’s no tomorrow. What a wild thing!
Spoiler Alert: Not really. But the AMG GT S is way more exciting and almost as fast around a track where you won’t ever drive it anyway, so you already see where I’m going with this.
