Mercedes made a pretty bold stylistic pronouncement at the Shanghai Auto Show, where it presented a new concept car: a sleek, compact sedan it calls, imaginatively, ‘Concept A Sedan.’ The car is nicely proportioned and attractive, but to Diamler AG Chief Design Officer Gorden Wagener it seems to represent a larger…
The thing about this fix is that I can almost see how it seemed like a good idea at the time. This person’s ratty old ‘80s-era Mercedes-Benz SL must have had a big hole in the convertible top, so the owner thought ‘what keeps out rain?’ An umbrella! Problem solved! Well, not really.
Drive like a champion, it’s almost the weekend!
It’s Monday! Back to work in your large turbodiesel luxury coupe.
It’s Friday! Get ready to get out there and Unimog like a champion.
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!
Now, I realize that I’m not an advertising executive working on the ad campaign for Mercedes-Benz–those easily alarmed people over at that ad agency reminded me of that. By shoving. Even so, Mercedes’ new ad campaign completely baffles me.
Daimler-Benz chairman Juergen Schrempp and Chrysler’s chairman Bob Eaton shook hands in London on May 6, 1998, after agreeing to merge their companies in what became referred to as the “Merger of Equals.” Except there was nothing equal about it; Mercedes took Chrysler to the cleaners.
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.…
After 51 fires were reported, Daimler AG made the decision to recall 1 million newer Mercedes-Benz vehicles before they become Car-B-Ques, reports Automotive News. A defective starter part has been named as the source of the car fires.
One day I would like to own an R107/C107 Mercedes SL or SLC. Ideally this one, but I can settle for another.
Most of us don’t associate Mercedes-Benz with tiny city cars, at least not in America, and not before a moment of reflection. Oh yeah, we think, Mercedes makes the Smart car. I always forget that. That skill with tiny-car packaging didn’t come from nowhere—Mercedes has been playing with tiny city cars for a long time.…
Remember this day, everyone. This is the day they came for our WETFARTs, and we did nothing. Today is the day that freedom died, in a moist burst, one last, damp eruption from our nation’s beautiful rectum of freedom. Yes, the state of California has recalled the legally-issued license plate that reads WETFART, and…
