The Mobile Tornado Actually Took Out A Bunch Of Cars At Mercedes…

Yesterday, a tornado struck in Mobile, AL that caused a ton of havoc. The local Mercedes dealer looked to be hit pretty hard, with their sign toppling on top of a poorly ML350 that was in the wrong place at the wrong time. » 12/21/12 5:30pm 12/21/12 5:30pm

Mercedes-Benz Recalls 5,800 Cars For Potential Fuel Leak

Fuel leaks are never sexy. The fumes pollute the air and worse, leaked fuel can catch on fire more easily than most things. Unfortunately for Mercedes-Benz, a whole bunch of fuel filters may have been manufactured with a weakness that could cause them to leak fuel. » 12/18/12 12:40pm 12/18/12 12:40pm

Bake Cookies With An AMG V8 This Holiday Season!

Christmas is coming, and while festive baking is traditionally something normally associated with the hausfraus in Germany, they probably won't mind if the boys give it a go as well.

2014 Mercedes-Benz E-Class: It's Official, And It Comes With A Clock

Two days after we showed it to you, Mercedes-Benz gave us all the details about it's newest E-Class. We said the car's redesigned front and S-Class shaped profile looks dull, and thought that the sedan's backside could bore even a hardcore Lexus fan, while they refer to it as "emotionally appealing". » 12/13/12 9:20am 12/13/12 9:20am

Surprise! Pope Benedict's New Popemobile Is A Mercedes-Benz Again

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. » 12/08/12 9:30am 12/08/12 9:30am

Kraftwerk: A History Of The Insane Cars From AMG

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. » 12/07/12 4:00pm 12/07/12 4:00pm

Will All-Wheel Drive Ruin The Mercedes AMG Cars?

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. » 12/06/12 3:00pm 12/06/12 3:00pm

Mercedes-Benz Ener-G-Force Concept: Finally Something Worthy Of…

The Mercedes Geländewagen appears to have been reborn as a rakish concept that debuted at the L.A. Auto Show this week. But unlike the O.G., the Energ-G-Force, as it will be known, relinquishes its predecessor's hearty thirst for gasoline to harness the power of the late Hindenburg. » 11/29/12 9:30am 11/29/12 9:30am

Start Lobbying Mercedes For A U.S.-Bound CLA Shooting Brake

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… » 11/18/12 12:00pm 11/18/12 12:00pm

The Mercedes Ener-G-Force Is The Awkwardly Named Future Of Off-Roading

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. » 11/16/12 7:45am 11/16/12 7:45am

The Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Black Series Will Kill You In Your Sleep

Sleep with one eye open if there's a Mercedes SLS AMG Black Series in your garage. It's a brutal killer. Just look at it. It's an SLS AMG GT3 if the SLS AMG GT3 is being hunted by Interpol. » 11/09/12 8:45am 11/09/12 8:45am

4th Gear: Neck and Neck For Luxury Car Leadership


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.

German Carmakers Are Lying To You

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. » 10/19/12 2:00pm 10/19/12 2:00pm

How Mercedes And Porsche Teamed Up To Make One Of The Baddest Sedans…

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. » 10/14/12 3:30pm 10/14/12 3:30pm

Used Car Face Off: Battle Of The Massive German Q-Cars

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… » 10/07/12 3:00pm 10/07/12 3:00pm
