The new Mercedes-Benz GLE can dance, probably better than you can. You, rather proud of your moves that only the walls of your home and A-pillars of your car ever witness, are probably huffing with annoyance and wondering why this matters in the first place, waiting for a chance to change the subject.
Big tariffs on imports could be coming on “national security” grounds, the German automakers are bracing for them, one of Tesla’s top lawyers quits and much more for The Morning Shift of Tuesday, Nov. 13, 2018.
I’m sorry, I know this 2009 Mercedes SLR McLaren 722S is really unique and special, but I just cannot look past the paint job. Other people on staff like it a lot, they think it’s a nice school bus shade of yellow-orange, but all I see a garish jack-o-lantern. I will attempt to look past that and tell you about it.
For sale right now in Colorado is a bearded, flannel-wearing millennial’s dream: a vintage Mercedes Benz 190 diesel that solves the problem of high rent with a built-in camper. It’s actually a really cool setup.
The Mercedes-Benz AMG performance division said two years ago that it would make a $3 million Formula One car for the road, built with the engine used in a series often called the pinnacle of motorsport. But it’s not so easy to tone down an F1 engine to the point that it can share stop lights with the Ford Fusions of…
Mercedes physically revealed the Mercedes-AMG A35 yesterday in Paris after debuting it online a few weeks back. I had a chance to sit in the little hot hatch today, and now I deeply need to drive this little oddball of a car.
At last, Mercedes has given the world a sneak peak at its battery-powered electric EQC crossover before it goes into production next year. It’s a highly anticipated arrival in the electric car market, as it’s expected to kick off some lively competition between itself and the Audi e-tron. But Mercedes have decided…
There’s something pretty damn intoxicating about a vintage-looking car loaded with high-powered modern technology. Mercedes-Benz saw that appeal, so they took inspiration from their record-setting 1937 W 125, loaded it up with an electric powertrain, and pulled off the covers to drop some jaws at Pebble Beach.
In case you hadn’t heard, this “cheating diesels” thing that started three years ago is still going on. Enjoy your morning commute to work, breathing in a lot more nasty vehicle emissions than you ever thought you would. This is The Morning Shift for Thursday, Aug. 16, 2018.
The Mercedes-AMG Project One, an angry fish-looking thing, will be the German automaker’s street-legal Formula One car. With a price of nearly $3 million, it seems like Mercedes is also going the way of Ford and Aston Martin by reportedly forbidding buyers from flipping their cars as soon as they get them.
Back in 2004, Mercedes defined the modern four-door coupe with the very first Mercedes-Benz CLS, which was basically an E-Class intentionally bent out of shape in a tragic styling exercise incident. Now there’s a third generation with an exciting new straight six engine, and it’s a hoot to drive and much easier on the…
It’s mid-cycle refresh time for the Mercedes-AMG C63, and that means there’s a new face, a new transmission and new driving modes for the up-to-503 horsepower V8 Muscledes-Benz.
A diamond plating-covered, Mercedes S-Class sitting tall on a Russian GAZ frame would be a total abomination if it weren’t so damn cool. Just watch this off-road beast—made up of a smorgasbord of parts from various cars—make Jeeps look downright pathetic.
I had a disturbing exchange with our fresh-faced young intern, Mack, yesterday. We were discussing the new Porsche Cayenne Coupe, a vehicle that is not, in any way, a coupe. I mentioned this, to which Mack responded “Yeah but at this point shouldn’t we just accept that the traditional definition of that word is gone?” …
It’s officially summer and I’m told that the commonfolk start bellyaching for something called a “vacation” during these warm months. I suppose it’s something of a break from the “work” they do to “earn” money and pay their “bills.” But what the hell, I decided to try out this vacation to see what all the fuss is…
Mercedes-Benz has always engineered its Very German Power Saloons, AKA “sedans,” with a balance of luxury and performance, but they’re only as capable as the shoes they wear, as this video of one spinning out on the highway proves.
If you thought the seemingly everlasting “old” Mercedes G-Class would actually go away completely, you underestimate its power over the militaries and corporations of the world. It’s still being built alongside it’s refreshed and improved replacement.
Rain came last night to the Nürburgring 24 Hours and barely let up all morning. It’s been extremely slippery out there, which gave us a lot of attrition. Only two cars are on the lead lap with just under an hour left—a Mercedes-AMG GT3 and a Porsche 911 GT3 R—and oh man, they’re at each others’ throats.
