2018 Mercedes-Benz X-Class makes its official debut

Would you have ever imagined a Mercedes-Benz developing an upscale pickup? We first saw this last October as a concept car and now, the production model of the Mercedes-Benz X-Class has been revealed. The pickup comes with a number of engine options, proven chassis and has a subtler look than the concept car.

It shares the same platform as the Nissan Navara and Renault Alaskan, and it is said to be a part of Mercedes-Benz and Nissan's joint development program. The former promises that this will have a lot more improvements compared to the more mainstream models.

2018 Mercedes-Benz X-Class should be in German dealerships in November, and will be shipped out to Australia and South Africa next year, followed by South America in 2019. It will have a starting price of €37,294 including VAT. The company has no plans on bringing the upscale pickup to the United States just yet.

Brabus gives the Mercedes-AMG A45 a sweet facelift

German high performance tuning company Brabus can turn any of your Mercedes A Class vehicle more powerful, while also making it look more handsome. In this case, they showed us the Mercedes-AMG A45 Facelift.

As you can see, the A45 now comes with a custom rear diffuser, Brabus sports exhaust, and a sweet set of 19 inch Brabus Monoblock R wheels in black and red.

The German tuner has not shared the new performance stats of the Mercedes AMG they have tuned. But the standard model, as we know, has a total of 400 PS and 500 Newton metres (368 pound-feet) of torque, enabling the car to perform the 0-100 kilometers per hour sprint in just 4.2 seconds.

A car envisioned for 2030: the Mercedes-Maybach ECHO Concept

Sometime last year at the Chateau de Chantilly located 50 km northeast of Paris, rare automobiles from different parts of the world gathered to flaunt their premium looks. The longest coupe in the world, the Mercedes-Maybach Vision 6 caught the eyes of many present at the Concours d'Elegance. It was a sight to behold. The exquisite coupe was presented for us to see into the future of luxury cars. The brand certainly outdid itself as it created a truly breathtaking study – the Mercedes-Maybach ECHO concept, a supercar that can take on the road as early as the year 2030.

Since the aforementioned Vision 6 Luxury Coupe design concept was made to showcase the future of premium hypercars, then a self-driving Maybach concept is just as timely as the coupe. The concept drawing came from the creative hands of design expert Hawan Park, who managed to create a car that features both futuristic as well as class, while also deducing how the visionary vehicle's wooden structure aids to disperse sound. Wood is the top material of choice for the interior akin to concert halls that possess unique mechanical and acoustic features.

This characteristic is the reason why wood is frequently utilized to build musical instruments. The 1.38meter-high car is shown with an interior covered in fine wood and other high-end materials. Furthermore, the ECHO concept will also flaunt a lot of novelties that include an awesome hologram projector that is located in the front of the cockpit, the gull-wing doors, and a flexible seat suspension. Aesthetically, the hypercar can certainly fit in a sci-fi movie with its elongated hood and millimetre clearance from the ground, and the fact that one is sitting so far away from the front adds a bad-ass touch.

A month ago, we mentioned a rare Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Roadster with an exquisite light green poly finish set to be auctioned at RM Sotheby's in Santa Monica, California. This unique roadster became the star attraction at the auction event that took place last weekend. The seller will most likely go home beaming due to the fact that it has been named as the highest-grossing car after having been snagged for an outstanding $1,100,000. The proud owner will not only obtain the exquisite roadster, but he will also acquire all the books, tools and luggage that came paired with the roadster.

The stunning droptop will celebrate its 60th birthday this year. It deserves to be commemorated as this particular roadster is considered as one of the most gorgeous cars ever made. This vehicle was restored in its pristine condition. When it was sent off the assembly line about 57 years ago, the roadster sported a Fire Engine Red finish, and now it flaunts an eye-catching Light Green Poly color.

On the other hand, the equally impressive 1992 Ferrari F40 sold for around $957,000. This model was finished in Rossa Corsa with less than 16,000 miles (25,749 km). The vintage Ferrari F40 is a US-spec vehicle and one of only 1,311 F40s ever built by the Italian sports car manufacturer. It was newly serviced by GTO Engineering and is in a mint condition both inside and out.

A favorite amongst collectors, the 300 SL Gullwing is one iconic car - probably the most iconic Mercedes-Benz of all time. Today, a well-maintained example will sell for a seven-digit price tag.

But not all of them cost that much. The one we have today will be sold in the market for $125,000 to $135,000 when it goes in the auction room at the RM Sotheby’s Santa Monica in California later this week.

The Gullwing that will go on sale this weekend has a fibreglass body, but underneath its body is a 2002 Mercedes-Benz SLK 32 AMG - this was purchased over two years ago from Mercedes Benz’ dealers in Houston and was fitted inside the 300 SL Gullwing replica.

Mercedes-Benz is not the company you expect to produce slow poke vehicles, and if you want more power boost then they got you covered with an AMG option. The team of tuners at Brabus takes these Mercedes-Benz releases and turns them into bolder, madder creations. Now the notable tuner has revealed its latest creation named the Brabus E-Class Wagon which is based on the Mercedes-Benz E-Class Estate.

Clients who are searching for an even edgier style can opt for new wheel designs that measure between 18 and 21 in diameter. The larger ones measure 9 inches in front and 10.5 inches at the back.

These wheels were safety-certified for the S 213 model series by independent German Technical Inspection Association TUV. Drivers can also opt to make the big wheels look more attractive by choosing Brabus' suspension turning alternative.

Mercedes-Benz will release more premium edition variants of its latest models that are closely based on the same concept of the SLC RedArt and SL design Edition. The car in question is the new GLE Coupe OrangeArt Edition which offers a model-specific upgrade.

In a bid to attract more consumers, the German marque will be offering its pseudo SUV-coupe with the premium edition treatment. The new variant is offered in a couple of black shades as well as in white, gray or silver hues. But what is eye-catching is that the Coupe can be aesthetically known for its orange accents of the rim flange and front apron.

Various eye-catchers in Orange lend the coupe a sporty look, and with its striking contrast, they give the vehicle a stylish vibe. The OrangeArt Edition Coupe also flaunts 21-inch alloy wheels directly from AMG's portfolio and will be offered as standard with a black LED ring meant for the headlights. The exterior's upgrades are only up to here, sorry to burst your bubble.

Celebrated golfer Tiger Woods is once again in the news for all the wrong reasons. On Memorial Day, various news reports disclosed that Woods was arrested under suspicion for driving under the influence. Specifically, police found him sleeping on the steering wheel and was arrested for the DUI.

While this may once again dent Woods' reputation, it comes as a relief that nothing worse happened. His 2015 Mercedes-Benz S65 AMG is altogether a different story. Though rather sketchy, the photos revealed that there were flat tires with the sidewalls torn. There were even some significant tweaks that can be seen on the wheels, which themselves clearly look dirty.

According to a report by the Police Department of Jupiter, Florida, the driver side also showed some damage. Looking at the photos though, the rather obvious damages look to be the loosened fender liner on the model's front wheel well. In addition, it appears that the front fascia has been dislodged. Given the fact that the driver side's front and rear wheels reveal some damage, one explanation could be that Woods may possibly have clipped something.

Not long after the glorious Mercedes-Benz Gullwing was retired, a roadster model of the 300 SL served as its successor. The 1960 Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Roadster was considered as one of the best German automobiles of its time, flaunting a robust power produced under the hood and an impressive 2-top cruiser designer. A prime example of the 1960 Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Roadster will go under the auction hammer soon, and we can't wait.

300SL coupe is one for the books and is considered as one of the most coveted automobiles worldwide among car collectors, with its gullwing doors and dynamic performance by 1950s standards. However, you won’t be able to put the top down for you to be able to enjoy the wind in your hair, though. For a one of a kind experience, you can check out this absolutely eye-catching 1960 300SL Roadster that will be put on auction by RM Sotheby's in Santa Monica, California on June 24. The 300SL Roadster will mark its 60th birthday this year.

The engineers at Mercedes-Benz didn't solely chop off the coupe' roof when developing the 300SL Roadster. They further supported and lowered the space-frame chassis, in turn it allowed the installation of conventionally hinged doors. The lower sills simultaneously allowed for greater ease of entry. The roaster also had a slightly tinier grille opening compared to the hardtop variants, dual chrome strips found along the side sills that give the vehicle a more streamlined and exquisite aesthetic. At the rear, its spare tire was relocated below the trunk floor, thereby requiring a smaller fuel tank but also having proper luggage space.

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.

BMW will be on the lookout starting now, as its "i" division will be going head to head with rivals in the coming days. According to a report from Autocar, Mercedes-Benz will soon bring some heat as it is geared to unveil an all new electric hatch concept at this year's Frankfurt auto show.

At the last year's Paris Motor Show, Mercedes-Benz dropped hints about its newly conceived "EQ" sub-brand with a namesake concept that will take the shape of a pure electric crossover. The primary EQ model called the EQ C SUV was revealed in concept camouflage as a part of a public debut for the German automaker's electric car EQ sub brand.

For 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show, the German automaker is working on the next concept that will not feature a combustion engine. And at this time, it will be a hatchback to represent the German automaker's purpose of rolling out a solid threat for the likes of the BMW i3 and Volkswagen's production variant of the I.D. concept. Autocar also further reported that the said hatch will be considered Mercedes' main model for the EQ lineup, which will have no less than 10 variants by the middle of the next decade.

You guys are probably aware of the collaboration between Mercedes-Benz and Renault-Nissan. Knowing this, you would expect that both companies will come up with something impressive. Sources say that the partnership has been working on some new gasoline four-cylinder engines. However, rather than developing a more powerful engine, they seem to have come up with 1.2- and 1.4-liter engines instead. Why small engines, you might want to ask?

The reason behind the downsizing is because the German company aims to lower emissions while increasing the efficiency of the new engines. The new 1.2- and 1.4-liter units will benefit from direct injection, and will be a standard in the next generation base variants of the A-Class and B-Class lineups, according to reports from Autocar. There are currently eight cars lined up for Mercedes’ compact models for 2018 including: the A-Class hatchback, A-Class Sedan, CLA, CLA Shooting Brake, B-Class, GLA, a rumoured GLB, and an unknown model that has yet to be announced by the company.

The new four-cylinder units, which currently go under the codename M282, are being engineered exclusively for transverse applications. Therefore, these engines will not be available for use in larger Mercedes-Benz models. These new units will be joined by an updated version of the “M274” which will soon be given a codename that is “M260”. The M260 will be bigger and is going to be available in two versions: 1.6- and 2.0-liter units.

Nowadays, there has been a surge of modified Mercedes-Benz G-Wagons, and we are happy with all that. Only recently, the German automaker powerhouse revealed its 2 deluxe, limited editions for the G63 and G65 SUVs. However, if they are not your cup of tea then tuner RevoZport got you covered, as they are now offering their latest upgrade package that makes the squared shape SUV even more daring. The G63 and G65 are not exactly innocent looking from the start but now RevoZport has raised their intimidating features to exciting heights.

This menace vehicle has an astounding 1,995 mm width, making it as wide as the humongous G500 4x4 Squared. Among the modified features are the brawny wheel arches that stretch the sides by about 70 mm. Due to its broadness, wider wheels can be put in by G-Wagon. Customers may also opt for a portal system that can snugly fit the G63 or G65 with wheels of the G500 4x4. If you are a big fan of the carbon fiber finish, then you would like this part. A set of striking carbon fiber vents take up most of the hood.

It also serves another purpose- the designs fuse a smart "water trap" system that makes sure water doesn't enter the engine area. Other exterior upgrades include a noticeable front splitter with unified LED daytime running lights, carbon mirror caps, roof spoiler and a carbon spare wheel cover. The carbon fibre feature doesn’t stop there, as the interior of the G63 and G65 RevoZport has been enclosed with extensive carbon fibre.

Mercedes-Benz really does love to tease, and now, we know why. It is because the top honcho of parent Daimler AG, chairman Dieter Zetsche, loves to do so. In fact, Zetsche was recently featured on a post at Daimler’s LinkedIn business network account, taking a selfie with a camouflaged version of the 2018 Mercedes-Benz A-Class. Yes, the 2018 Mercedes A-Class is finally coming and it is now being test-driven – as well as teased -- by Zetsche himself.

Teasing a new product isn’t actually the main part of Zetche’s job at Daimler. However, he can do as he pleases. Nonetheless, as Daimler’s chairman noted, it is part of his job to test drive new products like the next generation of the A Class. It is his job to make sure that a new model is good enough to pass the careful eyes of the company’s management team, and is ready for series production.

Confirming that the car that he was taking a picture with is the 2018 A-Class in a camouflaged form, Zetsche said in a LinkedIn post that Mercedes will be taking the wraps off the camouflaged A-Class in 2018. He called the new A-Class as special since it is a symbol of the rejuvenation of the Mercedes brand, which started when it introduced the current generation in 2012. He noted that since 2012, Mercedes has sold more than two million units of the A-Class.

Remember the Mercedes-Maybach S650 Cabriolet that made its debut back in November 2016 at Los Angeles Auto Show? Yup, that’s the upscale version of the already luxurious S65. A few years ago, Daimler revived the Maybach nameplate to do a collaboration with Mercedes’ S-Class Sedan. The result was an extra-long super high-end sedan, looking all muscular, but at the same time, sensual.

Ever since then, Mercedes and Maybach have launched a couple of special edition vehicles, including the limited edition G650 Landaulet, where only 99 units were built. Alongside that was the S650 Cabriolet that is limited to 300 units.

It seems like the 300 units they were planning to build have already been built. Images online show dozens of the Mercedes Maybach S650 Cabriolet parked outside the Brabus headquarters in Bottrop. These images were posted on a German website Mercedes-Benz Passion Blog. And sources say that these beauties, painted in ivory, were made by the three-pointed star logo, and the 621 horsepower cabriolets are being upgraded by Brabus to their necessary specifications.
