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.
Imagine you, a member of the public, are driving about in your Mercedes-Benz 300SL Gullwing and minding your own business. As you do. Suddenly, while stopped at a light, the inattentive driver behind you taps the back of your car with his. You would have become a murderer that day, but because Mercedes is now selling…
It’s just a fleeting moment, but in the first episode of the second season of Jeremy Clarkson’s Motorworld, there’s a glimpse of what appears to be a Mercedes G-Class bodied boat of some kind. What’s up with that?
Following on the heels of the Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 that we saw at Pebble Beach in 2016, images of the new Vision Mercedes-Maybach Ultimate Luxury SUV concept leaked today ahead of the 2018 Beijing Auto Show. And it is large. Massive. Vast. Colossal.
The Mercedes-Benz S-Class, very possibly the “best car in the world,” is going electric, Mercedes-Benz’s CEO Dieter Zetsche said Wednesday. And not just hybrid, which you can already get with the S550e. No, this will be full-on electric, and a challenge to Tesla, who has recently been beating them on their own turf.
Russell Crowe has divorced his wife of over a decade. Sad! But, as he explained to an Australian television station on Thursday, he’s now trying to create “a bit of clear space.” How’s that? Well, he’s putting hundreds of things up for auction, including a 2001 Mercedes-Benz S500 that dates to his Gladiator days.
