“You can’t know where you’re going until you know where you’ve been” is the kind of lame, sing-song fortune cookie saying you get from time to time in lieu of an actual fortune. And while on most days, I think it’s merely a hokey way of reminding people that the past is important, when it involves two very special…
Four years ago, Aston Martin and AMG announced a partnership in which Aston Martin cars would get AMG engines and Mercedes electronics. Mercedes would get a five percent equity in Aston Martin. Good stuff all around!
Friday is here! Hammer down and finish the week strong!
Hot off the reveal of the 3 Series-rivaling 2018 Genesis G70, the company’s CEO has boldly announced that Genesis has no interest in developing a high-performance sub-brand for its luxury cars like many of its rivals due to the imminent threat of electric car performance.
There was a time when an AMG wasn’t just some car you bought from a dealership. Not long ago you, could take your Mercedes and a large stack full of cash to the tuners at AMG—then a separate company from Benz itself—and they would make you basically whatever you wanted, even if that meant stuffing a 6.0-liter V8 into…
A few weeks ago I told you to go find and buy an old Mercedes C43 AMG, a hot little V8 rear-drive sedan from the 90s that still looks sweet and costs next to nothing today. A few days ago somebody took my advice. But maybe they took it a little too far.
Currently, if you buy a Mercedes-AMG model, you can get it in the 43, 45, 63 or 65 trims. But by as early as next year, Mercedes could be adding another engine to the AMG lineup. An inline-six one.
I used to call the original Mercedes-Benz C-Class one of the most timeless car designs ever created. Now almost 20 years after its heyday, the car definitely comes off extremely ’90s—and maybe not in a good way. But holy crap, these are some seriously inexpensive cars with awesome engines and interesting historical…
If the 2017 Mercedes AMG GLS63’s daddy was a muscle car, its mother must have been a private jet. But this high-capacity hot rod conducts itself politely—for the first centimeter or so of gas pedal travel. Press your right foot much deeper and this luxury liner turns into a 5,754-pounds of fat fury.
The 2017 Mercedes GLS63 AMG is an immense creature. Simply put, it’s a high-powered variant of the S-Class luxury barge, evolved into an SUV about the size of a Chevy Suburban. Every empirical aspect of this vehicle is big, and I think I’m really going to like it.
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!
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.…
We had a profile of the thing back in September and no name. Now we have a rear end and a name. Progress!
It wasn’t so long ago that a Mercedes AMG was a subtle but purposeful personal transport. Especially the E-Class, which has always been the most correct size a car can be. Well those days are over. The new E63 AMG sits on 10-inch-wide tires and does zero to 60 in the same time as a Dodge freaking Viper.
The Mercedes lineup is crowded with fast convertibles. There’s the S63 and S65 AMG, the AMG GT Roadster, upcoming variants of the C63 AMG and likely a million other models. You might be wondering where that leaves the venerable SL roadster and its amped up Mercedes-AMG SL63 variant, but it leaves it right where it…
