Exciting news for fans of Pope Benedict XVI: His Holiness has a new set of wheels, and — shockingly! — it is a Mercedes-Benz SUV yet again. I guess he didn't take too kindly to my suggestion of an '86 Mitsubishi Starion Popemobile.
AMG came a long way from building racecar engines in the sixties to making our Editor-in-Chief write about their newest child with the caps lock on. Their cars are just that good.
While BMW's M cars and Audi's RS machines are known for precision, Mercedes' AMG cars are known for smoking their tires at every single chance they get. They are the muscle cars of the performance German sedan world.
Thomas Urbach, the President and CEO of Mercedes-Benz Korea, took his own life in Germany during a trip to visit the automaker's headquarters.
Welcome to Used Car Face Off, where we find two similar or similarly priced used cars and ask you which one you would buy. Choose wisely!
Clearly, the US isn't getting what the rest of the world is going crazy for. That's usually the case, but I feel like in the case of the third-generation Mercedes-Benz A-Class, it's criminally unfair. It's a good-looking small Mercedes, which certainly hasn't happened since skinny ties were cool the first time. Maybe…
The Mercedes G-Class has been around in the same basic form for about 78 years now. Ok, the number is actually closer to 33, but it is getting long in the tooth.
Bloomberg reports that Mercedes is still out in front in the race for U.S. luxury car sales leadership, but BMW has narrowed its lead. As of the end of October, Mercedes was ahead of BMW by 2,748 vehicles. One big question is what kind of impact Hurricane Sandy will have on luxury car sales. The Northeast is a…
San Diego police evacuated several businesses Wednesday morning after someone brought something that looked like a pipe bomb into Mercedes-Benz of San Diego. More than 300 people waited two hours while the bomb squad investigated the object with a bomb-sniffing robot.
There was a time, not long ago, when the jumble of silver numbers and letters on the back of a German car meant something. But nowadays those alphanumerics mean nothing, because marketing has become more important than honesty.
Last week, I pitted two Q-cars against each other and determined Mercedes was the first of the Germans to nail the recipe for a sedan that looks boring but packs a punch. The 300SEL 6.3 was the beginning, but the W124-based 500E was a high-water mark.
Mercedes popularized the sleeper performance car, or Q-car, by sticking massive engines into innocuously styled sedans. The normal 300SEL of the 1960s was a nice luxury limo of its time, but it wasn't exactly a barnstormer. Stick a 6.3-liter V8 in it, like Mercedes did in 1967, and you have the stuff legends are made…
The Mercedes SLS AMG has one of the loudest and most audacious exhaust notes of any car on the road. It's part of what gives it that distinct character.
Ever wonder what a Mercedes-Benz boat would look like? Your waiting days are over, my chums of fine pedigree. Mercedes has teamed up with Silver Arrows Marine to create the Benz yacht you've always wanted but could never have. It's pure floating sex.
The Germans over at Der Spiegel have found the upcoming A-class sedan in Iceland. If there's going to be one small Mercedes to sell well in the US, it will be this one.
While 25-year-old fraud suspect Rashad Lewis was in jail in Manhattan, his impounded Mercedes CL was ticketed for running a red light. Now he claims that it was the NYPD who went on the joyride.
