If the 2017 Mercedes AMG GLS63’s daddy was a muscle car, its mother must have been a private jet. But this high-capacity hot rod conducts itself politely—for the first centimeter or so of gas pedal travel. Press your right foot much deeper and this luxury liner turns into a 5,754-pounds of fat fury.
The 2017 Mercedes GLS63 AMG is an immense creature. Simply put, it’s a high-powered variant of the S-Class luxury barge, evolved into an SUV about the size of a Chevy Suburban. Every empirical aspect of this vehicle is big, and I think I’m really going to like it.
Have you seen what Mercedes ML55 AMGs are selling for these days? Friends, we’re all just a few thousand bucks and a plasma torch away from having 340-horsepower AMG V8-powered AWD hot rods!
We still don’t know what the Mercedes-AMG hypercar will look like, but we’re slowly learning more about its impressive features—a Formula One powertrain, a supposed 1,000 horsepower and an engine that revs to 11,000 RPM. But guess what! For the mere $3 million it costs, the engine will only last 31,000 miles.
I beseech you to try and take issue with the Mercedes-AMG GT. You can’t. Even if that’s not the six-figure sports car you’d buy, it’s hard to have problems with that howling 503 horsepower twin-turbo V8 in such a sexy package. One thing that would make it even more interesting would be an extra set of doors and seats.…
We had a profile of the thing back in September and no name. Now we have a rear end and a name. Progress!
It wasn’t so long ago that a Mercedes AMG was a subtle but purposeful personal transport. Especially the E-Class, which has always been the most correct size a car can be. Well those days are over. The new E63 AMG sits on 10-inch-wide tires and does zero to 60 in the same time as a Dodge freaking Viper.
The Mercedes lineup is crowded with fast convertibles. There’s the S63 and S65 AMG, the AMG GT Roadster, upcoming variants of the C63 AMG and likely a million other models. You might be wondering where that leaves the venerable SL roadster and its amped up Mercedes-AMG SL63 variant, but it leaves it right where it…
When Mercedes unveiled its new AMG Formula One hypercar project, they said it would have the drivetrain from its F1 car. We were skeptical, as that would just be absurd. But Mercedes says it’s being serious – it’ll have a 1.6-liter turbo V6 screaming to over 10,000 RPM in a street-legal car.
Looks like it’s happening: Mercedes just confirmed that it will build the AMG F1 hypercar today during a press conference at the Paris Motor Show. The Germans are saying it will actually be inspired by Formula One, and that it’s not just some marketing bullcrap. In fact, they’re saying it will use the whole powertrain…
Mercedes is reportedly planning to spin-off a new, all-electric sub-brand for its electric vehicle efforts, similar to BMW’s i-brand. I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but Mercedes is an automaker with a history full of great names, which is exactly why they shouldn’t try anything new.
Mercedes has introduced a new AMG GT base model in America that’s almost $20,000 cheaper than the initial GT S model. I’m thinking that slides the new entry-level GT into reasonable third-car territory finally.
The Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG is one of the most imposing vehicles that a person can interact with on the road. It’s all big grill and V8 and leather-lined status. What’s that like in the real world? Watch us explain that, live.
Today’s Nice Price or Crack Pipe RENNtech CLK 60 was supposedly once owned by one of baseball’s heavy hitters. Let’s see if that provenance, and its tuner mods, will make its price a home run hit.
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.
