Mercedes-Benz C-Class Drift Commercial Portends A Hellish Future

Lately, I've been seeing this commercial for the new Mercedes-Benz C-Class an awful lot, and it's kind of been haunting me. And not just because the disembodied voice of Don Draper is telling me, calmly but firmly, how awesome the new car is. There's something profoundly disturbing about this ad, and I want to get to… » 7/07/12 2:00pm 7/07/12 2:00pm

Brabus Bullit Black Arrow Finally Goes On Sale, Takes Mercedes C-Class…

No, that's not Darth Vader. Nope, it's the Brabus Bullit Black Arrow and trust us, it's got more in common with Vader than the Mustang variant with the same name.

BRABUS Bullit Black Arrow Is Blacker Than Ever

BRABUS introduced the wicked Brabus Bullit V12-powered C-Class sleeper at Frankfurt last year and, not wanting to let floor space go to waste, has introduced the follow up Black Arrow. Like the previous Bullit, the sedan still sports the 6.3-Liter V12 Biturbo engine good for 720 horsepower and 974 ft.-lbs. of torque… » 3/03/08 5:45pm 3/03/08 5:45pm

The 2009 Mercedes-Benz CLC Is Cheap And Easy

The new Mercedes-Benz CLC sports coupe (ahem the C-Class SportsCoupe) is a dirty whore. We keep trying to get a good look at it but it's always got some woman (and occasionally some man) on top of it. Look, we know it's debuting at the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Berlin and that's how they do things in Berlin. We're… » 1/09/08 12:45pm 1/09/08 12:45pm
