Mercedes S-Class and S 63 AMG Coupe. DRIVEN

The Mercedes-Benz S-Class has always been the technological wunderkind. I've had the good fortune of steering a few elder generations of the Sonderklasse long after their release, and have always been amazed that the technology equipped within these 10-15 year old luxury barges hasn't felt out-dated, or in any way… » 9/03/14 7:30am 9/03/14 7:30am

BRABUS' Customized Sprinter Is Another Nail In The Limo's Coffin

I've always liked that the tuning company BRABUS has been willing to work their tuning alchemy all across the Benz line, from Smart cars to G-Wagens. So it makes sense that eventually they'd get to the Sprinter. And what they've doing to the vans should help make limos feel like endangered emus. » 8/27/14 12:00pm 8/27/14 12:00pm

Forget AMG And M: How Fast Are Today's 'Ordinary' Sports Sedans?

The great Teutonic Horsepower Wars of the 2000s propelled the top AMG, M, and RS cars to supercar-levels of performance.

I'm Not Saying Mercedes Is Gonna Buy Aston, But It's Looking Likely

Mercedes-Benz just upped its stake from 4% to 5% in storied British carmaker Aston Martin. That may not sound like a lot, but it's a big burst of cash for Aston. This might not all sound like much, but I think Mercedes is going to buy Aston outright sooner rather than later, and here's why. » 8/07/14 9:42am 8/07/14 9:42am

You Can Get Crazy Supercar Performance For The Price Of A Used Minivan

As some of you may know, I am generally fond of the W220 Mercedes, and this car is a prime example why it's such an insane value for money. 604 HP, 738 ft-lbs of torque, and a realistic 0-60 time in under 4 seconds, bone stock. Ladies and gentlemen, this is why depreciation is a very, very good thing. » 8/03/14 11:08am 8/03/14 11:08am
