The 2018 Mercedes AMG E63 S is wrought from the middle of your Venn diagram of desires. You want a car with power and personality; you need a car that can carry kids and cargo. You want a 600 horsepower hot rod; you need safety and subtly. You like wagons, because you have good taste and are smart.
Aston Martin has not installed a 6-cylinder engine in any of their cars since the death of the DB7 in 1999, even though the company was, for decades, synonymous with inline-six touring coupes. Thanks to the British sports car maker’s partnership with Mercedes-AMG, inline-six power could be back on the table again, in…
Today Mercedes looked upon its own works and despaired, recognizing in a brief moment of self-awareness that, hey, maybe having 40 models is enough. Or if it’s not enough, it’s pretty damn close. Bah! BAH. It can do more. It can do so much more.
Mercedes is not content with stretching the definition of what a coupe or a sedan is, and is now stretching the definition of what a car is itself. The Mercedes-AMG GT four-door is not, in fact, an AMG GT stretched to fit four-doors.
The new Mercedes-AMG GT four-door is a style-conscious four-door coupe for those wanting a bit more than the usual E-Class. But that’s a car that Mercedes already sells: the CLS. Now that it’s doubling up on specialty cars, you have to wonder if Mercedes has run out of niches to fill. Amazingly, Mercedes kind of…
If you’re the kind of person who likes truly unique fast cars and procreation, your options can be limited when it comes to combining your two passions. Yes, you can get M cars, RS cars, and AMGs, but they’re all faster versions of already existing cars. Maybe you want something that was designed from the off as a…
Mercedes just updated the C43 AMG to give its 3.0-liter V6 larger turbochargers, more boost and more power. Things are up 23 horsepower to a total of 385, which basically makes this the sports sedan you wished you could buy a decade ago from Audi.
There’s another car-themed boat, everyone. Because you know as soon as we saw the 1,000-plus-horsepower Mercedes-AMG Project One, there was someone already in the wings, dreaming up a boat version of it. And here it is: the Cigarette Racing 515 Project One. It has 3,100 HP.
The Mercedes-AMG Project One isn’t a head-turner, unless you pull a double take because it looks like a mutated fish. But that doesn’t mean it’s not effective. No, no, no, this car isn’t meant to look good. It’s meant to go fast and glue itself to the ground, which is why AMG claims it makes NASCAR levels of downforce.
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.
This has to end. Enough is enough. The new Mercedes C63 AMG, with its twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V8, does not sound inferior to the old Mercedes C63, with its naturally-aspirated 6.2-liter V8. Listen! The madness has to stop.
Mercedes-AMG seems like it’s almost trying to lose its identity of a niche little corner of the Benzian empire—rare, loud, imposing and blanketing the nearest intersection with tire smoke. But none of that matters now. For just a moment, I’m going to enjoy this straight six with an AMG badge.
If there’s one thing I’ve caught myself saying in the last few years, it’s that there just aren’t enough AMG models. We are at an utter shortage! Thankfully, though, Mercedes just gave us three more to choose from. And they all use the new 3.0-liter straight-six with the 48-volt hybrid assist, so the go-fast brand is…
More environmentally friendly cars aren’t so friendly to the pedestrians around them, considering that they’re quieter than a Miata seller when you ask about the rust. Automakers are turning to fake noise because of that, and Mercedes has Linkin Park helping it come up with sounds for its AMG cars to make.
When you take a regular Mercedes-Benz car and give it a fat engine, big power and lots of fancy performance bits, you get an AMG. When you take a regular AMG coupe and make it even more aggro and faster, then you get a Black Series. And four of them will be for sale very soon!
“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…
There are a lot of lovely grand tourers to choose from right now. We’re determined to drive them all and this is our latest one to test: the 2018 Mercedes-AMG GT C Roadster. What do you want to know about it?
The Mercedes-AMG G65 is an amazing 5,600 pound anachronism of an SUV, with a 6.0-liter V12 putting out what Mercedes says is 630 horsepower. And while the G-Class, as introduced in 1979, will live on, Mercedes-AMG says the G65 will not. On Thursday, the company announced it would be releasing 65 “Final Edition” G65s…
I’ve never understood why automakers put their pie-in-the-sky concept cars that real people can’t buy in movies and TV shows (unless they’re set in the future, like I, Robot or something), but Mercedes is doing just that with the upcoming Justice League movie.
