515 Project One powerboat by Mercedes-AMG and Cigarette Racing is unveiled at 2018 Miami Boat Show

Mercedes-Benz recently published an AMG Project One teaser, and just by hearing those words, I am pretty sure that we got you excited. But here is the thing, it wasn’t a teaser of a hyper car this time, but a boat instead - or should we say hyper boat?

This boat is not like any regular boat out there, but it can be more accurately described as a Cigarette Racing offshore powerboat. It has been inspired by the impressive Mercedes-AMG Project One. The good news here is that we have been given full disclosure on this boat, and we are telling you now that it isn’t like your regular seagoing yacht that has an automaker’s badge but cannot perform. In fact, this is quite the opposite of that. With over 51 feet in length, this model is packed with carbon fiber, and can do 140 miles per hour (225 kilometers per hour) on water.

This boat is called the Cigarette Racing 515 Project One. It does not have the hypercar’s monstrous engine but that is completely fine with us. In fact, the Mercedes AMG Project One’s 1,000 horsepower engine will not get the boat anywhere near 140 miles per hour, and that is why this water borne Project One has been equipped with a pair of Mercury Racing quad-cam V8 engine that brings out 1,350 horsepower (1,006 kilowatts) each.

2019 Mercedes-AMG E53 Sedan will be available in the US later this year

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.

If The Hulk were to be a car, what would it be? Well, you might want to check out this Mercedes-AMG GT R that is just as green and powerful as the angry monster. But before we get to that, let us first talk about the standard Mercedes-AMG GT which is available in a handful of variations. The standard version is the GT Coupe, pumping out a respectable 469 horsepower (349 kilowatts).

There is also the GT C, which focuses more on performance and has as much as 550 horsepower (410 kilowatts). Meanwhile, the range-topping model would be the track-ready GT R, with the ability to deliver 577 horsepower (430 kilowatts). And last but not the least is the four-door GT. But even with those options, one German tuning shop thinks that the AMG GT could use more power.

So going back to the mean, green AMG GT R that Renntech offers as an upgrade. They enabled it to deliver between 612 and 825 horsepower (456 and 615 kilowatts), depending on the trim. The latter of the two is dubbed as the AMG GT R825. This does not only have more power, but also has a torque of 626 pound feet (850 Newton metres). The extra power is attributed to the larger turbo, paired with a software upgrade, blow off valves, and high flow air filter, among others. Of course, expect the transmission as well as the clutch to cope with the change.

Before we saw the Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door Coupe make its debut, it was previewed by a concept that’s even crazier with a biturbocharged 4.0 liter hybrid V8 that brings out as much as 805 horsepower (600 kilowatts). Now, the good news here is that we could see the same engine in the AMG vehicle down the line, but the bad news is that this engine didn’t get carried over to the final production model.

During an interview between Mercedes boss, Tobias Moers and Digital Trends, it was confirmed that the hybrid V8 engine will go into production “one day”. However, he did not say which particular model will get the said engine. However, he promised that engineers have been working on a production version.

Moers even brought up the GT concept that came out in Geneva last year. That particular model had a V8 engine in the front and an electric motor on the rear axle. He then added that everything here is in development and that the said model will go into production one day.

Another year means another Formula 1 season. And soon, the 2018 season will kick off this weekend with the Australian Grand Prix in Melbourne. This year marks the 23rd consecutive year and Mercedes Benz, again will provide the Safety Car for the most important motorsport event. Since 1996, Mercedes-Benz had been the supplier of the event’s safety car, from way back when it was the C36 AMG, to the Mercedes-AMG GT R today - this might be the most powerful F1 Safety Car of all time.

Under its hood is a biturbo 4.0 liter V8 engine that enables the car to carry out 577 horsepower. During the 2015 to 2017 seasons, the GT R just follows the lesser GT S version. Also, it will be Bernd Maylander who will be behind the wheel of F1’s official Safety Car.

In Maylander’s interview, he said that the highlight of this car would be its driving dynamics. And that he is glad that it is a level higher than the AMG GT S of recent years. He added that the safety car should be deployed as rarely as possible, but when they have to bunch up the Formula 1 field and drive it around the track, then it will be equipped with the AMG GT R.

The Nurburgring Nordschleife has long been considered as a benchmark for performance in the automotive world. Because of its complicated course, carmakers and tuners have been trying to prove the worth of their creation by driving through the so-called Green Hell. Now, Mercedes-AMG could try to prove the performance of its Project One hypercar by challenging the Nurburgring.

In an interview with Autocar, Mercedes-AMG chief executive Tobias Moers remarked that it was "reasonable to speculate" that the new Project One hypercar would challenge the lap time record at the fabled Nurburgring lap time record. Right now, the lap time record for the Nurburgring for a production car is being held by a Porsche 911 GT2 RS (991) driven by Larns Kern. With a lap time of six minutes 47.30 seconds, this Porsche 911 GT2 RS had set a new record at this challenging course.

Interestingly, Moers is looking beyond the lap time record by a production car at Nurburgring. The AMG Project One will also try to challenge the overall lap time record at the Green Hell. This means that the AMG Project One will aim not just at becoming the fastest production car at this circuit, but also set the target of becoming the fastest among all cars that ever set their tracks on this road.

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.

The Mercedes-AMG GT R isn't in any way underpowered. Dubbed as the “Beast of the Green Hell” by the AMG – owning to the fact it was mostly developed in the Nordschleife circuit of the famed Nurburgring – the AMG GT R has the specs to prove this moniker. However, tuning company Renntech has transformed the beast into a more powerful monster and wrapped it in an attention-seeking orange suit.

It is unknown whether Renntech has found the AMG GT R underpowered or just wanted to boost the speed predator’s credentials. Either way, Renntech did a great job in making the Beast of the Green Hell more impressive and more noticeable.

As it is, the AMG GT R is powered by 4.0-liter, twin-turbo V8 engine paired to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. It is tuned by AMG to deliver 577 hp (585 PS) of max output and 516 lb.-ft. (700 Nm) of peak torque. This V8 engine – along with a number of dynamic elements and high-tech components – allow the AMG GT R to sprint from a standstill to 60 mph in just 3.5 seconds and achieve a top speed of 198 mph (319 km/h). Furthermore, an AMG GT R driven by Christian Gebhardt of Sport Auto managed to complete a lap at the Nurburgring Nordschleife in just 7 minutes and 10.92 seconds.

When Mercedes-AMG created the new Mercedes-AMG GT R, Mercedes-Benz’s high-performance brand had the racetrack in mind. Since most of the development time of the AMG GT R was spent in the "Green Hell" of the Nurburgring, the AMG GT R earned the nickname the “Beast of the Green Hell.” Now, that mindset is translated from four wheels into two wheels, resulting to the creation of the ROTWILD R.S2 Limited-Edition Beast of the Green Hell.

As its name indicates, the ROTWILD R.S2 Limited-Edition "Beast of the Green Hell" is a special-edition hand-built racing bike that takes heavy inspiration from the AMG GT R. While the development of the AMG GT R was underpinned by AMG’s vast experience in AMG GT3 customer sport and in the German Touring Car Masters, that of the ROTWILD R.S2 Limited-Edition "Beast of the Green Hell" is cored on driving dynamics, design, comfort and lightweight construction.

Just like the AMG GT R, the ROTWILD R.S2 Limited-Edition "Beast of the Green Hell" racing bike employs a number of state-of-the-art technology. While the AMG GT R employs intelligent lightweight construction incorporating aluminum and carbon with specific reinforcements in the body shell, the hand-built frame of the special edition bike takes on "Carbon Module Monocoque Technology" (MMT2) as well as "High Modulus" and "High Tenacity" fibresto. This allowed the bike frame to offer high levels of rigidity with ideal damping properties while weighing as low as possible.

The Mercedes-Benz G-Class has been around for quite some time now but to bid it farewell, the company has launched the Mercedes-AMG G65 Final Edition. Mercedes will only build a total of 65 examples of the Final Edition, which will be sold worldwide. And each of them will come with a price tag of 310,233 euros (around $368,000).

To make it look exclusive and high-end, the SUVs will feature bronze accents on the exterior - from the 21 inch wheels, the bumpers, front grille surround, mirrors, to the center section of the spare wheel cover at the back. Both sides of the body get a high-gloss black trim in the protective strips, and the grille up front now gets a black mesh center.

Inside the Final Edition’s cabin are a number of upscale features like the black nappa leather that covers the seats, and the carbon-fiber-like finish for the seat bolsters. To give it some contrast while keeping it looking high-end, Mercedes gave the diamond quilted center sections bronze stitching. Furthermore, there is a light brown weave that highlights the carbon-fiber trim throughout the interior. Heated and ventilated seats will ensure the comfort of passengers when the climate changes.

After Mercedes-Benz introduced the Project One, the first street legal car with the Formula 1 powertrain, wouldn’t you wonder what an F1 version of it would look? Well, maybe getting rid of the roof will help.

We do know that F1 drivers drive cars with no roof, not yet at least. So if you are into the current design of the Project One, you will love it as a Spyder.

Now, thanks to E Milano for rendering the Project One for us. Parked on what looks like someone’s garage, the Project One looks like it is ready to hit the race track anytime.

Aston Martin and Quintessence Yachts are finally done building the AM37 after endlessly teasing us with mere renderings of their speedboat. They initially made two examples of the vessel in which one is finished in Ocellus Teal exterior with Ivory cabin while the other one is in Diavlo red with a cream leather interior. The third one is said to be already under production but we are not sure when or where it will make its first voyage. Aston Martin plans to make only ten of these annually which should cost around $1.6 million apiece.

Arriving at Monte Carlo for the 4-day event are two bespoke examples of the speedboat which will be featuring a 15-inch touch screen, a foldable swim platform and touch-screen operated sliding lightweight carbon-fiber panels. While Quintessence Yachts hails from the Netherlands, the AM37 is being manufactured and produced near Southampton England to be closer to Aston Martin’s British heritage. The Monaco boat expo is currently being held and runs from September 27 to 30.

The AM37S or the top model is equipped with a pair of Mercury Racing’s 520hp gas-fueled engines (388kW) producing a combined output of 1040hp or nearly the same output as Aston Martin’s Valkyrie with 1130hp. There are two other engine options in which the mid-range model gets a pair of 430hp (321kW) gas-fueled Mercury engines while the standard vessel shall receive a pair of diesel powered 370hp (276kW) engine.

Aston Martin and Mercedes-Benz have recently joined forces, and the first fruit of their collaboration has finally been revealed. The Aston Martin DB11 is equipped with a 4.0 liter turbocharged V8 powertrain as an option.

This is the first model to benefit from the deal since Daimler AG, Mercedes’ parent company, and Aston first joined forced in 2013, when the German multinational company bought five percent of the British company’s shares. Both companies go hand in hand like adding cocoa powder to a cup of dark hot chocolate.

The V8 is a familiar sounding term to many, and yes, it is the same V8 that you may be thinking of. In fact, it is the same engine that you will find in most Mercedes models, just like the 503-horsepower AMG GT S. To ensure that the DB11 still reminds you of an Aston Martin, the engineers did a little bit of calibration, reprogramming, and ECU-relates items so that the car still feels and sounds like an Aston Martin.

The Lamborghini Aventador SV Roadster may be the fastest car out there, capable of reaching 60 miles from standstill in just 2.8 seconds, plus having a top speed of 217 miles per hour. But where will the Aventador end up if it runs out of road to drive on? We all know that the planet is made up of 70 percent water.

Well, that doesn't seem to be a problem. If you have the money to get yourself that roadster, you sure can afford a speedboat to pair with it. There is a listing on JamesEdition in Fort Lauderdale of a Lambo Aventador SV Roadster with a matching catamaran. And yes, they really do have matching colours.

Just like the roadster, the catamaran was customized to look like it is the supercar's big brother. The 52-foot MTI G6 has been finished with a Verde Singh shade paired with Alcantara upholstery, and of course the carbon fiber trim. And that's not all, as the speedboat comes with a steering wheel, marinized switchgear, door panels, and lighting from the Aventador - literally the works.

Daimler has made a superb job of beefing up the Mercedes-Benz range in the present day, increasing the number of models in both the high and low spectrum of the German automaker's portfolio notably in the AMG category.

And the results have been impressive: Mercedes-AMG achieved a remarkable 99,235 AMG vehicles worldwide in 2016. This represents a 44.1 percent growth compared to the previous year. It appears that the German automaker isn’t backing down from its goal of a record sales growth. In fact, if its sales continue at its current rate, it is very likely that Mercedes-AMG will hit the 100,000-unit mark this year to set another sales record.

This can be attributed to the German automaker's move to release more affordable models including the A-Class in Europe and the CLA in the U.S., head of marketing Britta Seeger said. She further revealed in an interview with Autocar that they are offering the A 43 for the driver who isn’t yet ready to get behind the wheel of a 63 model.

Mercedes-AMG’s much hyped Project One will inevitably turn up at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show this September. But knowing how excruciating it is to wait for something as good as this, Yicheng Fan, a Behance designer, rendered his own concept of a Mercedes-Benz hypercar.

Embodying the simplistic approach on the German marque’s most legendary models, Fan has rendered an astonishing concept that you wouldn’t mind placing next to the hottest supercars of today’s generation.

The first thing we’ve noticed in Fan’s concept creation is the vehicle’s domineering front fascia with long windshield design. This elongated windshield blends flawlessly along the hood and bumper at the front for a very smooth finish. Some other startling elements such as the massive air intakes, tiny headlights as well as the front grille with floating three-pointed star emblem are also executed with exceptional taste.

In line with its 50th anniversary, Mercedes-AMG has been dishing out more information about the $2.4 million limited production hypercar. This took place right before the Nürburgring endurance race kicked off earlier this week. Finally, the "once obscure" details of Mercedes-AMG Project One are getting a clearer picture after the German tuner’s recent revelation.

To offer a glimpse of the powertrain, Mercedes-AMG reveals an insane turbocharged 1.6-liter V6 derived from none other than Lewis Hamilton’s 2015 Formula 1 race car. The engine unit however has been equipped with new pistons, a modified crankshaft plus an overhauled electronic system for the road-going model.

The V6 idles at 4,000rpm and revs up to 13,500rpm with two electric motors working with the 6-cylinders. Rated at 107hp (80kW), the first motor keeps the turbocharger spooled up permanently while the motor connected to the crankshaft is capable of up to 161hp (120kW).
