Video Marathon: 2010 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Gullwing

The boys and girls at Merc have taken a different approach to testing the new SLS AMG Gullwing. Instead of stealing the hot new ride away to clandestine locations in the night and avoiding spy photographers like the plague, the company has released a slew of images and videos detailing testing. Of course, the car [...]

Video: Damon Hill And The Mercedes-Benz SL55 AMG

If you’ve hung around here long enough, you know we’ve got a soft spot for torturing passengers. I think it reminds me just a little too much of high school shenanigans. The video after the jump shows former F1 champ Damon Hill flogging the snot out of Merc’s SL55 AMG. And by flogging we mean [...]

Picture of the Day: Bitchin’ Diesel Wagon Edition

Secret time, Fiends. See, like most of the other demented fools around here, I’ve got a wagon bent. There’s just something awesome about them. That’s not the secret though. When I was in school I knew a girl with an old turbo diesel Mercedes-Benz. She got the car for a song from a family friend, [...]

Picture of the Day: 1955 Mercedes-Benz 300 SC Coupe

Mercedes-Benz pulled the covers off of the new E-Class coupe ahead of its Geneva Motor Show debut. It’s a sharp looking rig by anyone’s standards, but the car’s missing a certain something that Merc’s of old seem to possess. Like this 1955 Mercedes-Benz 300 SC Coupe. Every inch of this car demands you stop and [...]

We Drive: 2009 Mercedes-Benz SLK 300

I-40’s thick with the mid-day lunch slog. Company trucks, commuter crap boxes and monolithic SUV’s are jousting for position around me as I come up on my exit, still a mile down the road. I’m hopping lanes and getting a feel for the SLK 300’s stance. Flash past an over pass with a bike cop [...]

Mercedes Tinkering With A-Class Roadster

The push for small, fun to drive and fuel efficient rides continues. Word on the Web is that Mercedes-Benz is contemplating a drop-top version of its A-Class. Now, before you go looking at the current A-Class and shaking your head, the car is set for a complete redesign sometime soon. That means it may ditch [...]

Mercedes-Benz 190SL

Picture of the Day: The Tragedy of Time

I know I just ran a POTD, but when the good stuff comes flying at you, well… do two. And this is the good stuff. That my friends, is a Mercedes-Benz 190SL convertible rotting in the California sunshine. Not as fast or sophisticated as it’s similar looking big brother — the 300SL — the 190 [...]

We’ve Feared This Day for Many Moons: The Horsepower Wars Are Over

Wah. Very sad. As far as wars go, the war on horsepower ranks right near the top. When I was writing the EcoBoost piece yesterday I was thinking back to more than a year ago when I first heard about Ford’s new turbo technology. The initial prediction had a twin-turbo 3.5-liter V6 producing 400 hp. [...]

Mercedes-Benz Unimog 404

The Truth vs. Fiends: Unimog Uber Alles Edition

Look, Mr. Justin and I talked about a whole bunch of other stuff, but all we really wanted to talk about is that damn Unimog. I mean, what else matters? Can’t think of anything. OK fine, this Unimog is really cool, too. And that Buick looks like it could be really good. Oh just listen. [...]

1955 Unimog

Very Greatest eBay Find Ever? Yes

Dude. Wowza. Where to even begin? Modern SUVS are too soft and plushy… Naw, too obvious. Look, this is one of those rare vehicles where if I had the cash (or a high enough credit limit) I’d buy it now, sight unseen. That’s a 1955 Mercedes-Benz Unimog 404.111. An odd, shorter version of the Unimog [...]

Video: McLaren-Mercedes SLR Stirling Moss Not For U.S.

Sad but true, Fiends. We can’t say we’re too surprised to hear the no roof, no windscreen, $1 million speedster isn’t coming our way. That doesn’t make it any less of a shame though. The SLR Stirling Moss was created to celebrate one of the greats of racing and was engineered with the singular goal [...]

Rumor Mongering: McLaren Mercedes-Benz SLR Stirling Moss

According to the kids on GermanCarZone, these are the first official images of the McLaren Mercedes-Benz SLR Stirling Moss. The pics come courtesy of some sort of print article, but the post doesn’t say which. Though, quoting a bit from the text, the post does say this low ‘n lovely ride is powered by a [...]

Mercedes-Benz SLC Gullwing Snow-Shoeing

Few things are sexier than a high-dollar supercar frolicking in the snow. There’s just something slightly out of place about sheet metal worth more than my house mixing it up with the elements. The scene is especially delicious when the car just so happens to be a prototype. MotorAuthority has nabbed a handful of images [...]

Carlsson Mercedes-Benz CK63 S

Usually, Mercedes-Benz’s AMG models represent the best the company can do. The cars tote all the hardware every other Merc only dreams about. Is that good enough for the Fiends at Carlsson? No sirs. Not by a long shot. The tuning haus has set on the C63 AMG, resulting in a much sharper car all [...]

Sale, Sale, Sale! Raiders Of The Lost Ark Merc 300C

The last time this custom-built Mercedes-Benz 300C popped up for sale, it hit eBay with a reserve of $2.5 million. Needless to say, a hacked up Jaguar Mark IV with Mercedes badges couldn’t quite command that kind of coin. The car’s back up for sale, this time through auction house Profiles In History. The estimated [...]
