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.
Four years ago, Aston Martin and AMG announced a partnership in which Aston Martin cars would get AMG engines and Mercedes electronics. Mercedes would get a five percent equity in Aston Martin. Good stuff all around!
Hot off the reveal of the 3 Series-rivaling 2018 Genesis G70, the company’s CEO has boldly announced that Genesis has no interest in developing a high-performance sub-brand for its luxury cars like many of its rivals due to the imminent threat of electric car performance.
On a twisty backroad in Connecticut, behind the wheel of the new 2018 Mercedes-AMG GT R, I followed a vehicle doing the posted speed limit of 55 miles per hour and thought to myself, “should I pass?” I had absolutely no reason to. Not one. But I did it anyway.
There are many variants of Mercedes-AMG vehicles these days: coupes, sedans, wagons, convertibles and even trucks. But the main distinction between any of them is what numbers are glued to the back. Or at least what those numbers stand for: what’s under the hood.
The Mercedes-AMG hypercar gives a whole new definition to the word, because it’s been more hyped than Taco Tuesday before the world was supposed to end in 2012. Mercedes said the road car with a Formula One engine in it makes more than 1,000 horsepower, and that its top speed will “exceed” 217 mph. Eh, OK.
A few weeks ago I told you to go find and buy an old Mercedes C43 AMG, a hot little V8 rear-drive sedan from the 90s that still looks sweet and costs next to nothing today. A few days ago somebody took my advice. But maybe they took it a little too far.
Currently, if you buy a Mercedes-AMG model, you can get it in the 43, 45, 63 or 65 trims. But by as early as next year, Mercedes could be adding another engine to the AMG lineup. An inline-six one.
I used to call the original Mercedes-Benz C-Class one of the most timeless car designs ever created. Now almost 20 years after its heyday, the car definitely comes off extremely ’90s—and maybe not in a good way. But holy crap, these are some seriously inexpensive cars with awesome engines and interesting historical…
What you’re looking at is the powertrain for the utterly insane Mercedes-AMG Project One hyper-ultra-super-mega-car—the $2.9 million car so bonkers, they’re essentially stuffing a lightly detuned Formula One engine in it. Neat.
Squint, and have your finger hovering over the “pause” button, for this Mercedes is fast and will streak by you before you even know it.
We still don’t know what the Mercedes-AMG hypercar will look like, but we’re slowly learning more about its impressive features—a Formula One powertrain, a supposed 1,000 horsepower and an engine that revs to 11,000 RPM. But guess what! For the mere $3 million it costs, the engine will only last 31,000 miles.
We had a profile of the thing back in September and no name. Now we have a rear end and a name. Progress!
According to reports, two men robbed a member of Lewis Hamilton’s Mercedes AMG F1 team at gunpoint prior to this weekend’s Formula One Mexican Grand Prix. The robbery occurred while in stationary traffic on Wednesday, and the team member chose to remain in Mexico for the race weekend.
On this blog, we’re big fans of showing you cars that you could one day buy testing at the Nürburgring in Germany. If you haven’t noticed, we really like when they’re fast. That being said, here’s a video of what appears to be the new Mercedes-AMG C63 R out there tearing things up. It looks pretty good, too.
Looks like it’s happening: Mercedes just confirmed that it will build the AMG F1 hypercar today during a press conference at the Paris Motor Show. The Germans are saying it will actually be inspired by Formula One, and that it’s not just some marketing bullcrap. In fact, they’re saying it will use the whole powertrain…
