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.
Here in America, we find ourselves with a sudden wealth of wagons as a nice byproduct of the crossover boom. Well, maybe not a wealth, but there’s more available now than in many years past. Kristen is driving the Buick Regal TourX and just tested a Volvo V90 Cross Country; BMW, Volkswagen, Mini, Audi and Jaguar (!!!)…
The previous G63 on full acceleration felt like being in a house falling off a cliff and it did 0-60 in 5.3 seconds. The new 2019 Mercedes-AMG G63, with 577 horsepower from AMG’s ubiquitous 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8, does the run in 4.4.
With a six cylinder engine and a five-speed stick, today’s Nice Price or Crack Pipe Mercedes R129 is a rare bird indeed. We’ll have to decide if this lower-spec’d roadster’s price make you want to flip it the bird as well.
If this were news about another inevitable Mercedes-AMG SUV, I’d roll my eyes. But it’s not: This concerns a potential AMG version of the new, 2019 Mercedes A- Class sedan, and I am absolutely stoked for it.
The Mercedes-Benz A-Class is the littlest Benz hatchback, and while in the past it’s had a three-pointed star, it’s never been all that... well, great. Evidently Mercedes is trying harder this time, as the new one that dropped today sure looks a hell of a lot more sophisticated.
The new 2019 Mercedes-Benz G-Class may look the same on the outside, but there are some huge changes underneath. So I sat down—well, technically, crouched down—with G-Class head of development Oliver Metzger to look at some hardware. It was awesome.
Most automotive enthusiasts know that cars tend to lose a bit of power with age and use, as wear and tear can take its toll on a car’s internals. On this episode of LegitStreetCars on YouTube, the host Alex shows just what kind of horsepower numbers his beater AMG’s hand-built engine can put down after almost twenty…
Are you tired of seeing small Mercedes crossovers everywhere yet? No? Great, because more are headed our way.
