Earlier this week, the revamped 2018 Mercedes-Benz S-Class was revealed ahead of the 2017 Shanghai Auto Show. As expected, Mercedes Benz’s flagship model is now offered in several variants including the AMG specced sedan. Unique to this update is the suite of driver assistance technologies and active safety features under its latest Intelligent Drive system.
According to Mercedes-Benz, the new enhancements on the S-Class are the closest it could get to actual autonomous driving. The most notable ones include the new Active Speed Limit Assist, Active Lane Change Assist, Active emergency Stop Assist, Active Steering Assist and Active Distance Assist Distronic feature. It also comes equipped with the new Route Based Speed Adaptation technology that adjusts the vehicle’s speed according to the information seen on the map such as exit ramps, toll booths, roundabouts, junctions and curves.
Most mid-cycle updates are not technically considered as facelifts. Instead, the automaker performs a few tweaks here and there to bring a fresh new offer for their customers. This time however, the luxury sedan is almost not the same as its previous model.Read the entire article 2018 Mercedes-Benz S-Class Facelift: here are the changes
We have been getting a lot of teasers about the upcoming 2018 Mercedes-Benz S-Class Facelift that is scheduled to debut at the 2017 Shanghai Auto Show. We’re expecting a handful of technological updates that accompany the new design of the S-Class.
Furthermore, Active Steering and Distance Assist have also been improved. 2018 models will also automatically slow down on turns and intersections, as it can recognize speed limit signs. This feature works with the help of cameras, radars, and navigation data.
The new 2018 Mercedes-Benz S-Class Facelift will be arriving in showrooms this fall. Pricing is not available yet!Read the entire article 2018 Mercedes-Benz S-Class Facelift comes with exciting new updates
If you’re expecting to own the newest hypercar from Mercedes-AMG, dubbed as Project One, prepare for some bad news. This road worthy F1 car is no longer available in the U.S. As confirmed by Road & Track, the brand had been compiling a list of possible customers and this was stopped last month. Even if you did make it to the list, it is still not guaranteed. The Michigan-based auto magazine revealed as well that the brand will still be choosing who among those in the list will get the chance to own this remarkable model.
While it was first shown during the 2017 Geneva Motor Show held in March, it was done so behind closed doors. However, it was later revealed that this was not the final version with project manager Melissa Witek saying that the one put on display was around 85% complete. Back then it was estimated that the price would be around $2.4 million. It has been confirmed that a total of 275 units will be made and next month the brand will reveal how many of these will be assigned for the U.S.
So how did people manage to get on the list? Well in order to be part of this rather elite club, you would need to be a longtime owner of a Mercedes. In addition, you would need to convince the brand that you will actually be using the vehicle rather than simply storing it and then selling it for a profit. For those who will ultimately get the chance to be a part of Project One, they will receive them directly from the brand. Owners though will get the chance to choose which dealer will deliver their models and do any of the servicing.Read the entire article Mercedes-AMG no longer accepting orders for Project One, sold out in the US

The soft top will soon be back for the Mercedes-Benz grand touring roadster, the Mercedes-Benz SL-Class. Not only that, the new Mercedes-Benz SL Class could now accommodate up to four people and is more dynamic than its hard-top predecessor.
Perhaps, one of the best news about the new 2019 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class – with codename R232 -- could be that it is said to be now being developed by the carmaker’s performance arm. A source privy to the matter told Autocar that this decision for the new two-seat luxury roadster was taken up last year by Ola Kallenius – Mercedes’ new research and development boss. According to the source, Kallenius decided to have AMG develop and engineer the new SL Class to give it “a more sporting character” than the current model – something that would be a piece of cake for Mercedes’ performance division. As a result, the new Mercedes SL Class would be a different proposition from the current model.
With AMG heading the engineering and development of the new SL Class, it isn’t a wonder why the new roadster is given such new elements. Its final production version is expected to be underpinned by a new platform -- known internally as the MSA (modularen sportwagen architektur) – that would also underpin the SLC’s successor. This new MSA platform permits scalable tracks and wheelbase, thereby allowing Mercedes to design a 2+2 cabin for more practicality. AMG chief executive Tobias Moers told Autocar at the New York Motor Show that a 2+2 configuration would allow the carmaker to offer a model with a “bit more space."Read the entire article 2019 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class to feature a soft top and 2+2 seating
After the unveiling of the Mercedes-AMG GT R in the midyear of 2016, the German automaker is at last revealing this exclusive green beast priced at $157,995. They will roll out this summer, and Mercedes-AMG announced that it will only produce 2,000 units worldwide. Those who are willing to dish out this amount of money must move quickly before these mean machines will be sold out.
The 3rd of kin and the most impressive member of the AMG GT clan boasts of pure power and decreased weight for dynamic performances. It is worth the wait after all, since the expert engineers from Affalterbach have managed to take off some load from the sports car and at the same time squeezed more power from the biturbo 4.0 L V8 engine to make the Coupe a worthy adversary in its league. The biturbo V8 can produce a whopping 577 hP (430 kW) and 516 lb-feet (700 Newton-meters) of torque, delivering 74 hp abd 37 lb-ft more compared to the S model.
A 7-speed dual clutch gearbox delivers the torque directly to the rear axle. Its first gear currently has a longer ratio, and the 7th gear has a shortened one to empower a far more better acceleration. The German automaker remarked that the GT R Coupe can accelerate up to 60 miles/hour (97 km/hour) in only 3.5 seconds and can reach a top speed of up to 198 mph(319 kph), which is 0.2 second more quicker that its S version predecessor . Weight-wise, the new AMG GT R weighs at around 3,428 lbs (1,554 kg)- which makes it lighter than the S version (90 kg less).Read the entire article 2018 Mercedes-AMG GT R rolls out this summer in US, see final pricing details here
Schmidt Revolution is well known for coming up with excellent tunes for specific models and this time around, it displayed its take on the C63 Coupe from Mercedes-AMG.
At present, the C63 Coupe is powered by the twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 engine that is capable of 469 hp (476 PS) and peak torque at 479 lb.-ft. (650 Nm). This is where the tuner starts to work its magic. Schmidt managed to up the power to 572 hp (580 PS) and even increased the peak torque to 538 lb.-ft. (730 Nm). With these figures, it is likely to have better acceleration compared to the standard engine, the latter of which allows the C63 to go from standstill to 62 mph (0 to 100 km/h) in 4 seconds. Be aware though that this update would cost you about $2,666 (€2,499).
With the update on the engine, it means you will likely need to put in other changes like the KW thread springs, which will cost you an additional $853 (€799). Meanwhile the level 3 KW coilover suspension will need you to put out an extra $2,752 (€2,579). If that’s not enough, the special Capristo exhaust system, which comes with throttle valves, will set you back $5,334 (€4,999). So far, that amounts to above $11,000, or more than €10,000.Read the entire article Schmidt Revolution’s kit for Mercedes-AMG C63 Coupe raises output to 572 hp
The German automobile manufacturer powerhouse Mercedes-Benz is on the brink of fully launching the mid-cycle upgrade of its flagship vehicle around April. Included in the press release from Mercedes-Benz regarding the plan for the S-Class lineup to be a level 2 autonomous vehicle are several images of parts of its interior. These have been hidden in plain sight all along.
In the previous months, there were leaked images of the S-Class Facelift that were published online, and the alterations are noticeable. A cleaner front bumper was revealed with a chrome bar fitted across the bumper. Also, the grill and the multibeam lead headlamps were shown to the public.
But only recently has the interior been clearly seen, and it is the perfect treat to us who are all too keen to see any aspect of its interior. Sadly, it doesn’t show all the anticipated changes. The overall look and outline of the dash, its location, the proportion of the display and the controls of the center console appear to be the same.Read the entire article Dashboard images of 2018 Mercedes-Benz S-Class Facelift get released
BRABUS has long been considered as one of those who everyone admires when it comes to ideas related to multimedia and business focusing on automobiles.

All of these are composed of carbon fiber.Read the entire article Mercedes-Benz V-Class by Mansory is a game changer

Mercedes-AMG is supposedly planning to whip out a track-honed C63 in the next two years. The C-Class as we know, usually follows a 7-year cycle before coming up with a new product. According to Car and Driver, instead of giving it the Black Series badge, the model will take on the same route as the AMG GT R or in this case, it will be labeled as the C63 R.
In the hopes of improving its racetrack credentials, the new C63 R will be made more lightweight compared to the normal C63 S model. That is, despite having already impressive performance figures under its belt. For that, Mercedes-AMG will be working even further in improving the C63 S model’s current hp and torque output from its 4.0-liter twin turbo V8 engine.
Together with an extensive range of aerodynamic treatments, the C63 R will feature a massive fixed rear wing to make it more capable on the tracks. Aside from the lightweight carbon fiber roof, it will have significantly wider front wings to make way for a totally new bespoke suspension setup.Read the entire article Mercedes-AMG C63 R gets rendered, seems ready to take on BMW M4 GTS

Having one of the fastest convertibles in the world may not be enough if it doesn’t come with the right color motif. This could also be what the guys at Brabus had been thinking of when they came up with this Mercedes-AMG S63-based Cabrio.
First off, the Brabus 850 we have right here is not only packed with incredible hp but it also comes with an equally powerful color scheme—imagine a completely white body with contrasting red interior to match. But that’s not all. the four-seater Mercedes-AMG cabrio is quicker than the latest Bentley Continental Supersports, thanks to its Brabus-tuned engine under the hood.
At any rate, Brabus has not only upgraded the AMG S63’s 5.5-liter stock engine but it also did some revisions on its ECU, exhaust manifolds and compressor units to make it one of the world’s most powerful and fastest convertibles.Read the entire article Brabus 850 Convertible S63 AMG's color mix is as impressive as its power and speed
Reporting for duty. It’s been a year since the Victoria Police was loaned a new Mercedes-AMG GLE 63 S Coupe. In those 12 months, the coupe served as the law enforcers’ reliable highway patrol car. Just when the time has arrived to surrender the car back to Mercedes-Benz Australia, a new replacement quickly took its place.
Clad in police livery with a matching name as the Guardian V2, the new patrol car is none other than the Mercedes-AMG E43 Sedan. The 3.0-liter V6 biturbo engine under its hood is more than enough to fulfill its role as an everyday highway patroller.
Paired to a 9-speed automatic transmission, the E43 boasts an output of 396 hp (295kW) and 384 lb-ft (520Nm) of torque. When chasing cars at high speeds, the AMG specified E43 police car has enough muscle to dash the highways from 0-62 miles (100/kph) per hour in under 4.6 seconds before topping off at 155 mph (250kph).Read the entire article Mercedes-AMG E43 Sedan is the newest Aussie Highway Patrol Car
In the last few years, the advent of compact sedans and crossovers has become quite overwhelming. Even two of the major manufacturers that “started it all” have to admit that there is not enough space left in their lineup.
Mercedes-Benz and BMW have finally realized that their coupes and cabrios are quite too many. This made them come onto a decision to get rid of some of their models in the near future. In a separate interview with Car & Driver, both Mercedes-Benz and BMW admitted that a great deal of their convertibles and coupes are becoming endangered with newer, more in-demand body styles.
Ian Robertson, BMW’s head for Sales and Marketing, explained that though the company may still have the upcoming X7 and X2 along with a few more models, BMW has also decided that they will be removing some body styles in the coming years. The segment, he said is “rather full”.Read the entire article BMW and Mercedes-Benz will narrow down their special segment models such as coupes, cabrios
No, Mercedes-AMG didn’t take the veil off its new hypercar -- the Mercedes-AMG Project One – at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show. It might because there are still some details or specs of the AMG Project One that need to be taken care of. Perhaps, Mercedes-Benz thinks it would be best to unveil its new ultimate creation at an event closer at home – the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show.
Mercedes-AMG is set to unveil the Formula One-powered AMG Project One road-going car in its near-complete form at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show in September as part of AMG’s 50th anniversary celebration. However, that didn’t prevent AMG from providing more details about the Project One at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show.
In September 2016, Mercedes-AMG did confirm that a hypercar was under development, with a power output that could reach four digits. This means that the Project One hypercar – known then through an internal codename of R50 – would have an engine that could develop at least 1,000 horsepower, which is basically the same power level of the AMG’s championship-winning W07 racer in qualifying mode at Formula. In fact, Formula One was more than just an inspiration for AMG, since the engine that will become as the core of the AMG Project One is a powered-down version of the technology used in its W07 Hybrid race car.Read the entire article F1 engine in Mercedes-AMG Project One will have a rev limit of 11,000 rpm
Following its global debut at the 2017 North American International Auto Show (2017 Detroit Auto Show) in January and its European unveiling at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show this month, the new Mercedes-Benz is now finally available to order, at least in its home market Germany. In fact, interested clients could now go Mercedes’ Web site and configure their own E Class according to their tastes and preferences.
As to how much the new Mercedes-Benz E Class Coupe would cost, the German premium carmaker has already provided a cheat list on the starting prices on each of the four models available at launch: the E200, the E220d, the E300, and the E400 4Matic. For those who have made their orders, they could expect to take deliveries of the latest iteration of the E Class Coupe as early as spring 2017.
The entry-level E200 derives its power from a 2.0-liter, turbocharged four-cylinder engine that could deliver up to 184 hp (135 kW) of output and up to 221 lb.-ft. (300 Nm) of torque. This amount of power is enough to send the Mercedes E200 Coupe sprinting from nil to 100 km/h in 7.8 seconds and achieving a top speed of 240 km/h. The Mercedes E200 Coupe is available in Germany at a starting price of EUR49,051.80 (including VAT).Read the entire article 2017 Mercedes-Benz E Class Coupe priced from 49,051 euros in Germany
Brabus is now showing off its impressive vehicle lineup at the ongoing motor show in Switzerland. The German tuning brand has offered its own take on a Maserati Levante, a Mercedes-Benz V-Class, a Smart Fortwo and Mercedes’ fancy G-Wagon.
The Mercedes-Benz G500 4x4² is unmistakably hardcore but Brabus certainly knows how to make it even more radical. Currently attracting crowds at its premiere at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show, Brabus takes the center stage with its new 550 Adventure 4x4².
The radical-looking off-roader is made even more sinister, thanks to Brabus’ aftermarket body kit. This highly modified truck now comes with a more extreme bumper guard at the front, a new hood scoop, a more aggressive underride guard, additional lighting plus a newly installed winch for emergency.Read the entire article Brabus launches extreme 550 Adventure 4x4² at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show
Brabus will be hitting this week’s most happening auto show with a powerful 641bhp C63 Cabrio. The after-market tuning company has earned its reputation in the industry for having tuned Mercedes-Benz cars for four decades. Its latest project, the new Brabus 650 Cabrio, is based on the Mercedes-AMG C63 S Cabriolet.
The drop-top 650 Cabrio receives a powerful boost of up to 138 hp –resulting in its highly impressive 650 horsepower and 604 pound feet of torque. Brabus modified its standard 4.0-liter twin turbo V8 engine so it can accelerate from 0- 62 mph in just 3.7 seconds before reaching a top speed of 200 miles per hour. The conversion consists of Brabus PowerXtra B40S and 2 turbochargers with larger compressor just to name a few.
Normally, a standard Mercedes-AMG C63 S Cabriolet comes with 502 hp and 516 lb-ft of torque. The hefty amount of powerful boost wouldn’t be possible if not for the recalibrated electronics and new turbochargers fitted under its hood. To do this, Brabus replaced the factory specified AMG turbocharger with its own turbo charger units. The tuning house has also upgraded the Mercedes-AMG C 63 Cabriolet’s ECU and got rid of the 155 mph limiter to allow its 650 hp run up to 200 miles per hour at top speed.Read the entire article 2017 Geneva Motor Show: Brabus does the Mercedes-AMG C63 S Cabrio
