2019 Mercedes-AMG C43 gets soft updates on power and styling

When Mercedes-Benz gave the regular C-Class models a soft update for the 2019 model year, it was already expected that it would do the same to the high-performance C-Class units. Now, the Mercedes-AMG C43 is getting a soft update – both in terms of looks and power – when it arrives as a 2019 model year.

Offered in Saloon and Estate variants, the new Mercedes-AMG C 43 4MATIC is considered as the entry-level high-performance C-Class model. Thus, it is only logical that it receives certain updates. For starters, the Mercedes-AMG C 43 4MATIC Saloon and Estate are provided with new distinguishing visual elements like the AMG radiator grille with twin louver in matt iridium silver, as well as the dynamically sculpted front apron with extra flics. The front apron features side air curtains that help channels front airstream. The trim details on the front splitter as well as the cross fin attachment now don a silver chrome finish.

On the rear end, the Mercedes-AMG C 43 4MATIC Saloon and Estate now feature a pair of round (instead of angular) twin tailpipe trim elements as finished high-gloss chrome. The rear end is also defined by a rear apron with side air curtain appearance, a more expressive diffuser as well as body-colored spoiler lip on the boot lid.

We reported about the Mercedes-Benz C450 AMG Sport back in April but today we found out that company’s new model will be introduced in January at the 2015 Detroit Auto Show. The new model will be the missing link between the standard Mercedes-Benz C400 and the more potent C63 AMG.

Under the hood it will carry a twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 petrol engine bolted to a seven-speed automatic transmission that is found on the C400, but boosted from 329 hp and 354 lb-ft of torque to around 367 hp.

According to the latest reports from Autocar, it appears that Mercedes-Benz is currently working on a sporty version of the 2015 C-Class called C450 AMG Sport. Set to make its debut on the market in 2015, the new Mercedes-Benz C450 AMG Sport will be slotted between the C400 and the upcoming C63 AMG.

It’s not a secret anymore than Mercedes-Benz is currently working on an AMG version of the all-new 2012 C-Class Coupe, but what we didn’t know until today was what engine will hide under the car’s bonnet. According to the Dutch website AutoWereld, it appears that the C 63 AMG Coupe will carry the same 6.3-liter V8 engine found on the recently launched sedan version.

For those who don’t know, on the sedan, the V8 engine delivers 336 kW (457 hp), while with some help from the AMG Performance Pack the total output is increased to 358 kW (487 hp).

Mercedes-AMG won't be so silent about its performance aspirations as the high-performance arm of Mercedes-Benz unveiled another hardcore model at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show. This time around, the performance division is giving more oomph to the new generation of the Mercedes GLE by taking the veil off the new Mercedes-AMG GLE 53 4MATIC+.

Even at the first look, the AMG GLE 53 4MATIC+ is easily identifiable as an AMG offering thanks to a number of elements that only its performance vehicles don. The most glaring of these elements is the AMG-specific radiator grille, which comes with 15 vertical chromed strips. Centrally located on the dynamic-looking Panamericana grille is the Mercedes star in the double ring.

Furthermore, the new AMG GLE 53 4MATIC+ features narrow headlamps, the A-Wing with silver-like trim as well as silver chrome-plated. On the rear end, the new GLE 53 4MATIC+ features a horizontal chromed diffuser strip in the rear apron and a special exhaust system with two chromed twin tailpipes. , As standard, the AMG GLE 53 4MATIC+ rides on 20-inch light alloy wheels with AMG lettering.

The Mercedes-Benz G-Class is entering an all-generation in the 2019 model year. Renowned German tuner Brabus is giving the current generation 2018 G-Class a fitting goodbye with the new Brabus 700 4x4² "one of ten" Final Edition. Safe to say, it is the final boss for the current G-Class with lots of power within.

Based on the Mercedes-Benz G 63 of the W 463 model series, the Brabus 700 4x4² "one of ten" Final Edition preaches it monstrous capability with a number of exclusive features. For instance, the exterior of the new super SUV is marked by the carbon BRABUS roof spoiler above the windshield. This spoiler comes fitted with daytime running lights, both on its left and right sections.

Complementing its 9.5 J x 22 wheels – which are shod with 325/55 R 18 Pirelli Scorpion ATR off-road tires – are massive carbon fender flares.

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.

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.

Mercedes-Benz has been working on refreshing its people-hauling V-Class, which has racked up more than 100,000 deliveries since 2014. But before the new model finally goes on sale sometime next year, the German automaker is giving the current model one last special edition to keep customers interested.

It is called the V-Class Night Edition and it comes with a handful of improvements care of the AMG department. But don’t get too excited because they aren’t doing any improvements to the engine. Power comes from the automaker’s familiar 2.1 liter turbodiesel engine with 190 horsepower (140 kilowatts) and 325 pound-feet (440 Newton metres) of torque. According to Mercedes, the average fuel consumption is between 6.8 and 7.5 liters per 100 kilometers, or 34.6-31.4 miles per gallon with CO2 emissions of 179-199 grams per kilometer.

As for the exterior upgrades, there’s the new AMG front and rear aprons, new radiator grille with two louvres in high gloss black, black AMG sourced 19 inch alloy wheels with seven twin spoke design, Edition badges on the front wings, and tinted rear windows.

While Mercedes-Benz is still gearing up to unveil the Mercedes-AMG G63 at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show this month, well-known tuner Lumma Design is already previewing a bespoke tuning program for the new AMG version of the Mercedes G-Class. This preview comes in the form of the new Widebody Lumma G-Class.

As its name indicates, the Widebody Lumma G-Class is fitted with a widebody kit, as complemented by heavy-duty alloy wheels and a number of performance upgrades. It is derived from the AMG G63, which boasts of delivering up to 585 hp of output and up to 850 Nm. While Lumma Design might not be the only tuner that would take on the new AMG G63, its extensive personalization program for the luxurious G-Class performance flagship could be very appealing to those who have extra money to spend.

The new AMG G63 performance flagship is actually a fusion of robustness, near indestructibility, passion, perfection and power. This is why Lumma chose this performance flagship as the base for the Lumma CLR G770 widebody kit. One of Lumma Design’s latest creation, the CLR G770 is composed of different parts and components made from ultra-light carbon fiber. These include carbon fiber body panels as well as a full carbon fiber bonnet that features specially designed vents. The CLR G770 kit also includes carbon fiber wheel arches that extend the width of the AMG 63 by 40mm on each side.

Right now, the G63 is probably the highest spec of the G Class that customers can buy, but Mercedes-AMG will allow you to have an even cooler G63 if you are willing to spend a little more. A few weeks ago, we witnessed the sinister looking Edition 1, and now, the Affalterbach is showing us the optional Night Package for the reputable off roader in the AMG variant.

Though the aforementioned special edition model is only available for 12 months, the Night Package is not time sensitive. In fact, it will be available for the G63 for as long as we know. As its name suggests, the package includes a number of black styling elements on the outside. The only exception here is that customers who get the car in black as a base colour cannot order this package. We do think that this makes a lot of sense because then the accents will not be noticeable.

When customers tick the “Night Package” box, the turn signals will now have a black tint, while the side mirror caps, and the outer ring of the spare wheel will also get an Obsidian Black finish. Some parts of the front and rear bumpers, and the side skirts, will be finished in black too. The rear windows will then be tinted, and black underbody protectors finish off the exterior upgrades.

The outgoing Mercedes-Benz C Class began production in the year 2015. And even though it may not be that old, the automaker decided to already give it a mid-cycle refresh and finally, it has arrived with the 2019 Mercedes-Benz C-Class sedan. The automaker recently just took the camouflage off the vehicle, before setting out to make its debut at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show in March.

When looking at the new C-Class sedan from the outside, changes seem to be very subtle but noticeable. For instance, the single bar diamond grille from the AMG Line now comes standard, surrounded by new LED headlights that are now standard as well.

The front fascia looks tweaked with horizontal fins in the side air intakes. The rear fascia has also been redesigned, now with an additional diffuser. The headlights and the taillights also got a minor design change and an LED upgrade, and the sedan now sits on a set of 17 inch twin five spoke wheels that are standard. Customers will now have more paint options like Mojave Silver Metallic and Emerald Green Metallic.

Mercedes-Benz recently filed trademarks for a number of model names, suggesting that the automaker has plans to revise model names to denote their latest powertrains. But then, these registrations can’t be taken as an assurance that the automakers will actually use them. However, in this case, we have heard rumours about the automaker’s future that support the reports.

It was last September 24 that the automaker’s parent company, Daimler, filed for all these trademarks in Germany. And it was a month and a half later, December 8 when the patent and trademark office made these official and public. Automotive blog, Auto Guide, then learned about this when the automaker submitted paperwork for most of these names on January 22, 2018, in Canada.

As mentioned earlier, we think that the 73 moniker will be used by Mercedes-AMG for a version of the 4.0 liter biturbo V8 with the addition of the plug in hybrid parts. The 73 is said to be capable of giving out 800 horsepower (597 kilowatts) and 738 pound-feet (1,000 Newton-metres) of torque.

We all saw the 2019 Mercedes-Benz G-Class as it made its very first appearance weeks ago at the 2018 North American International Auto Show in Detroit. Though we only witnessed it very recently, the automaker confirms that we will soon be seeing more unique AMG versions of it.

Ian James, G-Wagen’s Marketing Manager said during his interview with Automotive News that the G-Class AMG is not that far away from being revealed. He also continued by saying that this will be available for the upcoming 2019 model year, which only means that we should expect to see it this year.

Because of his statement, do not be surprised if an artist from X Tomi has already begun rendering this. This G63 rendering is likely what we will see in early March before any other variant. Moreover, the automaker has also already given up a preview of what must be the more powerful AMG model, by showing off this G-Class in the AMG Line specification, finished in white. Yes, the AMG is really just a visual package for the off-roader, but it comes with a handful of upgrades. One of the main upgrades is a larger and more powerful biturbo 4.0 liter V8 engine.

During the recent 2017 Los Angeles Auto Show, one of the few cars that stood out would be this 2019 Mercedes-Benz CLS that made its debut. Because it turned heads, it has inevitably become a favourite among rendering artists.

Some of them may just be for the hell of it, like the Coupe and the Cabriolet. The newest one looks actually quite promising. Imagined by artist Aksyonov Nikita, is a four-door coupe in the range topping AMG guise.

Up front, some of the noticeable changes would be the new bumper and the modified grille that includes the AMG badging. The rear end, on the other hand, gets a new bumper, carbon fiber diffuser and a boot lid spoiler, as well as quad tailpipes.

There is no doubt that there’s something beautiful about classic cars like the Porsche 911 and the Toyota FJ, but companies like Icon and Singer helped a lot of people ignite their lust for the classics, but this time, it’s upgraded with modern elements. Aside from the companies I mentioned earlier, there is also Mechatronik Engineering, which has the same aspirations but does things differently. For instance, the Pleidelsheim, Germany based company decided to work on classic luxury cars instead of sports cars and off roaders. And their latest work involves a two-door Mercedes-Benz.

This model was originally built between the 60’s and the 70’s, the W111 coupe is the German shop’s latest reworking. Speaking of classic cars with a modern twist, the coupe had been given a Mercedes-AMG SLK 55 5.5 liter V8. This helps the car produce 360 horsepower (268 kilowatts). You might now be wondering how much this vehicle cost. Well, the company listed it on their website for $464,000 (400,000 euros).

Aside from getting a powerful engine upgrade, the W111 now has an improved ABS brake system to ensure that it can stop the coupe when its going too fast. It now sits on a modern chassis too. What’s great about this car is that it can deceive people, and that is the point. For instance, one would not be able to figure out that this comes equipped with an AMG-sourced V8 by simply looking at it. However, if you want to go purely old school, Mechatronik Engineering can revert everything back to OEM spec if that’s what you prefer.

The Mercedes-AMG Project One has been the talk of the town since it has been revealed. The 1,000-plus horsepower (745-kilowatt) model was inspired by an F1 car and had been designed in a wind tunnel. Naturally, artists all over the world will be interested in giving the Project One their own style when it comes to designing it, and one of these artists mocked the said model with a unique Formula One touch to it.

The designer gave the Project One a completely different face, where the elongated nose looks like it had been pulled off of Lewis Hamilton’s AMG F1 W08 EQ Power+ F1 car. Furthermore, the rendered model looks like it has gotten rid of the headlights up front and moved it just behind the grille for a sleeker look. Now with a more distinct face, the Project One now has got a unique angular diffuser. As mentioned earlier, this Mercedes car was inspired by a Formula One car. It’s clear that Peisert Design’s rendering looks “virtually closer” to one, even more than the production model.

Similarly, the Project One’s rear end has been changed up a lot too. A singular light bar now runs from one end to the other to replace the standard tail lights on the production model. The spine has also been made more functional and now lights up when the driver steps on the brake pads.
