Show your love for the Mercedes-AMG brand with a new option: the LED Projector AMG Emblem

In 2013, Mercedes-Benz started offering a novel way to make the vaunted Mercedes-Benz star on the grille more noticeable in the dark – by illumination. This simple but innovative illuminated Mercedes-Benz star managed to attain huge success, with increasingly more customers availing of this option from Mercedes’ original-parts program. Now, this program is offering another way to spice up a Mercedes vehicle – the new LED Projector AMG Emblem feature.

Mercedes is making the LED Projector AMG Emblem available to almost every model in its lineup. This means that whether a customer drives an A-Class or is hitting the road in a GLS, he or she could have this customization feature be installed on his or her ride. However, the LED Projector AMG Emblem could only be fitted on Mercedes model with the door lighting packages that come with factory-installed entrance light mounted at the bottom of the front doors. Once installed, the LED Projector AMG Emblem would replace the factory-installed entrance lights.

Once the driver or front passengers open their respective doors, the AMG emblem – an apple tree on the river that symbolizes the company’s location in Affalterbach, Germany – would be projected into the entrance area in a three-dimensional manner through the entrance lighting mechanism located at the bottom of the front door. This mechanism makes one’s entry into a Mercedes vehicle more special, allowing the driver or the front passenger to enjoy a more exceptional experience.

Mercedes-Benz will entice customers with a wide range of accessories at Frankfurt

Those who will attend the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show will be able to personally witness the Mercedes-Benz EQ A Concept, but if you want to experience something even more high-tech, check out the automaker’s E-Class Estate that features an augmented reality roof box. You’ll probably wonder how Mercedes-Benz Accessories’ demonstration works. Well, visitors of the auto show will have to use Microsoft’s HoloLens glasses and a camera to recognize their hand movements, which lets them store skis and bags into the storage space.

Some of you may not be into high-tech gimmicks like this, and that’s completely fine because Mercedes-Benz Accessories will also display several customized X-Class pickups that will demonstrate the wide variety of available parts to improve the truck’s overall appearance. These include soft or hard tonneau covers for the truck, a bed cap, styling bars, side steps, a bed liner and storage box. For a more durable and a better off road truck, Mercedes can offer you a three-piece stainless steel underbody guard to protect the engine, transmission and exhaust system.

It is not just the pickup that Mercedes will be putting on display in Frankfurt. A GLC Coupe will feature the company’s aftermarket roof spoiler. In the cabin, passengers will get an attachment point that fits a coat hanger, folding table, a camera mount, or tablet holder. The C-Class Estate gets the same item too. The GLA-Class, on the other hand, will be getting roof rail tracks. This lets the compact crossover carry the Mercedes-Benz Mountain Bike, with a carbon fiber frame and 3.9 inches (100 millimeters) of suspension travel. Last but not the least, the S-Class Cabrio sits on a set of 10-spoke, 20-inch wheels.

Mercedes-Benz unveils its light-alloy wheels for the 2013 warm season

German premium carmaker Mercedes-Benz has created a new plug-in hybrid vehicle that combines the power of two technologies –electricity (battery) and fuel cell (hydrogen). In short distances, it relies on pure electricity. When there is a need to travel over long distance, this plug-in hybrid relies on the power of fuel cell. This is the new Mercedes-Benz GLC F-CELL PHEV.

Using the Mercedes GLC as the base, this technological showcase isn't a futuristic vehicle, but is a real SUV that will be delivered to customers at the end of October 2018. It was originally envisioned as a plug-in hybrid, but now represents an important step by the German carmaker in the development of fuel cell technology.

As engineered, the Mercedes GLC F-CELL PHEV features four operating modes: Battery, Charge, F-Cell and Hybrid. All operating modes are supported by an energy recovery function that allows energy to be recovered during braking or coasting, then store it in the lithium-ion battery.

In terms of performance, the Mercedes-AMG GT – whether in its base or R version -- already packs a good punch. Nonetheless, several tuning companies have already created their own version of the AMG GT, and they all managed to create a greater monster out of the "Beast of the Green Hell." Now, it is the turn of Fostla, a tuning firm from Germany, to show off its own formula of steroids for the AMG GT.

First off, Fostla saw it fit to make the AMG GT look meaner on the road. This entails the fitment of a number of aftermarket parts and components. While these aftermarket parts and components should make the AMG GT become visually more appealing and more dynamic, they should give these beast an aerodynamic advantage.

To achieve this, Fostla saw it suitable to install a widebody kit, which aftermarket package was provided by Prior Design. This widebody kit gave the AMG GT wider hips as well as a rear wing. Prior Design’s aftermarket package likewise includes a number of aerodynamic elements like front and rear flicks as well as a meaner rear diffuser. Up front, the stock front grille of the AMG GT was replaced with a blacked-out configuration evoking the Panamericana grille.

Mercedes-Benz Trucks is introducing the latest generation of its flagship heavy-duty truck – the all-new Mercedes-Benz Actros. The all-new flagship truck is now more efficient, more comfortable, more integrated and more high-tech. For the newest generation, the all-new Actros gets rid of the conventional side mirrors and makes use of side mirror cameras called MirrorCam.

The online introduction of the new Mercedes Actros serves as a precursor to the official unveiling of the all-new flagship truck at the IAA Commercial Vehicles Show, which is scheduled to happen from September 20 to 27, 2018 in Hanover, Germany. It will be available to order as soon as the 2018 IAA show starts, with first batch of deliveries set in spring 2019.

Crime prevention is usually a job for the police authorities. Nonetheless, being in the wrong time and wrong place can make one a victim of a crime. Mercedes-Benz is currently working on an app that would allow drivers and their passengers to not become crime victims.

Places usually not frequented by many people are the usual venues for crimes. Criminals lurk in these places simply because the chances of being seen or caught are quite low. One of these places is the parking area, where vehicles typically outnumber people, except when it is time to go home. Going into a safe parking area already means a lot for any driver. At Mercedes-Benz, its software developers are finding ways to help Mercedes-Benz drivers avoid parking areas that are prone to crime.

Still under development and planned for future use on Mercedes-Benz models in the United State, this new app allows cars to use crime data to recommend safe parking spaces or areas. An in-car service, the new app would cross-reference police statistics with available parking spaces, to tell Mercedes-Benz drivers whether it is safe or not to park in a certain parking space.

It has been a year since Mercedes-Benz unveiled the Mercedes-AMG Project One at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show. So far, there has been no or little update from the German premium carmaker. Nonetheless, Mercedes is expected to unveil the production-ready version as well as the final moniker of the Project One next month at the upcoming 2018 Paris Motor Show.

During the year after the Project One was revealed, there has been rumors that Mercedes is also intending to create two more versions of the hypercar. One of these would be an open-top roadster version and the other would a track-only variant that can’t be legally driven on the road. According to TheSupercarBlog.com, Mercedes was planning to build between five to 10 units of the Project One roadster, as well as between 25 to 50 examples of the track-only version.

Of course, Mercedes really had to look into whether developing two more versions of the AMG Project would bring a good case. These two versions – the Project One roadster and track-only model – were evaluated, but evaluations weren’t so positive for them. TheSupercarBlog.com reported that roadster and track-only versions of the Project One were sent to the trash bin in August.

For the past years, Mercedes-Benz has been unveiling spectacular concepts or visions. There were the AMG Vision GT and the Concept IAA, as well as the Vision Maybach 6 and the Vision Maybach 6 Cabriolet. Its latest concept, unveiled at the Monterey Car Week, is likewise nothing short of stunning while showing off the carmaker’s glorious past. This concept is the new Mercedes-Benz Vision EQ Silver Arrow.

Just by looking at this concept, people can’t help but associate with Mercedes’ Grand Prix racing cars in the 1930s. During this period, Mercedes cars were called Silver Arrows. Actually, the new Vision EQ Silver Arrow is inspired by and pays tribute to the 1937 Mercedes W125 Grand Prix racing car. Driven by the legendary Rudolf Caracciola, the W125 set a new speed record on public roads in 1937 after averaging 432.7 km/h (268.8 mph) on the A5 autobahn between Frankfurt and Darmstadt. This record sat untouched for around 80 years, until it was broken in November 2017.

Just like the 1937 W125, the Vision EQ Silver Arrow features a long and extended front section and short front overhang. The round cockpit glazing of the Vision EQ Silver Arrow -- modeled on a drop of water in terms of outline and cross-section – was also inspired by the W125. Similar to the Silver Arrows, this one-seater concept is wrapped in alubeam silver paint.

When the Mercedes-Benz X-Class was unveiled in 2017, it was no doubt a representation of luxury among pickup trucks. While Maybach represents the ultra-luxurious side of Mercedes-Benz, the X-Class isn't one. However, a Polish company that goes by the name of Carlex Design is offering to convert the new X-Class into a Maybach-like pickup in terms of looks and features.

Carlex Design noted that the Mercedes-Benz X-Class deserves to be called as a luxury pickup. Not only that the pickup offers a drive comparable to a sports utility vehicle, it also delivers a smooth comfortable ride. In addition, the new X-Class, in its standard guise, isn't just coz and comfortable, but is also equipped with features found in premium cars. Thus, Carlex Design made the X-Class a subject of a new conversion program that could be availed for as low as EUR105,000. To prove its point, the Polish specialist created an example.

At a glance, the Mercedes-Benz X-Class by Carlex Design is undeniably an X-Class but with a twist. The typical grille of the X-Class has been replaced by that of a Maybach. In particular, this conversion employs a grille from the Mercedes-Maybach S650 Cabriolet.

Mercedes-AMG only came out with the E43 lineup a few years ago, and already, the said model is ready to retire the badge so they could give way for the arrival of the electrified E53 family. It was first revealed at the beginning of the year during the Detroit Auto Show and came in two body styles, a coupe and a cabriolet. These were then followed by the reveal of the sedan and wagon flavours last month.

And according to the automaker, towards the end of the year, Mercedes will be selling the 2019 model year E53 Sedan in the United States, as a replacement of the E43 Sedan, and it will come along with the more upscale two-door E53 models. To make it clear, the name change is just a minor thing.

The real upgrade is in its performance, as it now packs more power. But instead, the new inline six biturbo 3.0 liter engine has an output of 429 horsepower and 384 pound feet of torque. That’s a noticeable difference compared to the old model that offered the output of 396 horsepower and 384 pound feet that came from the former V6 engine.
