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.
The Mercedes-Benz S-Class has some of the most comfortable and pampering seats on the market today. You can drive around while being simultaneously cooled, heated, massaged and hugged by the active bolsters. But what’s under all that buttery and perforated leather?
[Every so often, Kavi Reddy, Gizmodo Media Group’s ever-so-cromulent attorney, has Good Car Takes. This is one of them.]
If you want to travel far off the beaten path, you usually start with a big truck. Not so for Neil Markwardt, who’s slowly been making a 1985 Mercedes 300TD into the ultimate off-roading wagon. Here’s how he did it.
Last month, I lamented about how a Mercedes-Maybach just wasn’t good enough for the idea it was supposed to bear. An insulting second-place prize for what indisputably should have been first. But I now know what first place looks like: The Mercedes-Maybach Pullman.
Mercedes-Benz Classic has arranged for the original supplier of the 1950s Mercedes 300 SL Gullwing’s awesome checkered wool upholstery to re-issue the fabric in the original specification. So if you’ve been yearning for one of the coolest car seat patterns ever, you can now buy it. But it won’t be cheap.
Here’s an interesting thing that’s happened lately: for years, we car enthusiasts begged automakers to give us more wagons as we moaned about the dominance of crossover SUVs. Now, thanks to America’s insatiable demand for anything with a hatch, we have more wagons on sale than we’ve seen in years. If cars can feel…
The current hybrid V6 era in Formula One has been defined by one thing above all: getting real damn tired of seeing the Mercedes car up front, week after week. Last season was better, but Mercedes unveiled their 2018 W09 EQ Power+ F1 car and I’m already bored of it.
