People tend to think of Mercedes-Benz as this brand that’s conservative and staid and boring—the old money of luxury cars. Every now and then they go and do some things so batshit insane that they prove those people completely wrong. Here is more of the 575 horsepower Mercedes-AMG GT R, in all its obscenely green…
Anyone who has been away from their car for a while knows the joy of being reunited with it. The familiarity hits on all of the senses: the scent of the interior, the feel of the wheel, the sound of the engine. Even the radio station you left it on, if you’re prone to that, which I am. Some people are more possessive…
If there is anything better than staring at a shiny, new Mercedes-Benz in the California mountains, it’s driving that new Mercedes through those California mountains—winding roads, unadvised high speeds and all.
The Mercedes G500 4x4², a rolling caricature of a car built as a monument to what’s possible when engineers develop a sense of humor, will soon be for sale in the United States. Finally, a few wealthy Americans will able to express their extroversion more acutely than they ever thought possible.
Mercedes showed off its new sexy wagon lineup today, but we only mentioned the E400 because, right now, that’s the only one to be sold in America. But, having stared at it long enough, the E43 AMG is worth talking about.
I get it. You need a car that can move the whole family, but you can’t stand the thought of a minivan and don’t want to be a crossover-buying sheep. If you have the cash, the all new 2017 Mercedes-Benz E-Class wagon might be the perfect 7-passenger car.
The Mercedes G-Class is The Simpsons of cars– built on great bones, but surviving so long it’s evolved into a caricature of itself. Well wallow no more hardcore G-fans: the 2017 G350d Professional is wiping the slate clean (and muddy) and starting over. The G just got great again.
The 2017 Mercedes C300 Coupe is a visual knockout. It places fuel economy and practicality on the back burner, focusing instead on stewing a fine batch of pure, distilled beauty. And there’s nothing wrong with that.
Now that Mercedes-Benz has their own version of the Airbus H145 helicopter and Arrow 460-Granturismo power yacht, that convertible S-Class kind of looks like a puny dinghy.
If you’re like any other semi-narcissistic person out there, you probably enjoy owning something desirable and expensive, if only for the virtue of its exclusivity. And if you’re a cheap-ass like me, you’ll enjoy that feeling even more if you don’t go broke chasing it. Thankfully, here are five automotive examples of…
Let me ask you a question: in 1978, was there a better car than a Mercedes-Benz W123?
It’s a Mercedes-Benz 190E 2.5-16 Evo 1 kind of morning.
After Mercedes built a front-engined front-wheel drive compact car, they found that the best thing to do is to throw out the spare tire from the back and jam another 125 hp engine in its place for a top speed of 142mph. Mika Häkkinen approved the idea.
I’ll be the first to say buying a cheap used luxury car is, above all else, tempting. It’s like ordering a $10 eight-ounce steak and then realizing that the measurement was in pounds, not ounces—even if it does have an expiration date that may prove uncomfortable for most. Here’s how my cheap used luxury car met its…
The folks working at Mercedes-Benz have been making cars for a solid 130 years now, and they decided to congratulate their youthful rivals at BMW on turning 100.
With all of the options and features the Mercedes-Benz S-Class and other new models have, the robots on the production line just can’t handle making the cars alone. For that reason, the automaker will trade out some of the machines for good, old-fashioned human labor. Take a moment to appreciate that one.
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.
