Brabus Upgrades Mercedes S550 Plug-in Hybrid

Brabus Upgrades Mercedes S550 Plug-in Hybrid
The gang over at Brabus is well known for taking Mercedes-Benz cars and giving those lots more power and torque. The last time we spoke of them was when they coaxed 850hp from the C63 AMG coupe.

Carspotting: 2016 Mercedes AMG GT S

Carspotting: 2016 Mercedes AMG GT S
Last week, I was fortunate enough to attend the Midwest Automotive Media Association’s (MAMA) Spring Rally at Road America. Arguably the finest sports car to turn up for the track portion of the event was this beautiful Mercedes-Benz AMG GT S.

Mercedes G-Class Gets More Power and New Colors

Mercedes G-Class Gets More Power and New Colors
I have long been a fan of the Mercedes-Benz G Wagon in AMG guise. There is something about a big and boxy SUV that has the performance to run with sports cars that grabs my attention.

The Next Mercedes E-Class Could Have Highway Autopilot

The Next Mercedes E-Class Could Have Highway Autopilot
There’s probably a certain kind of driving that you, as a gearhead, genuinely wishes you had an autonomous car for: long stints of highway driving. I love my short morning drive to work. There are a good number of mostly empty roundabouts that make going to work feel a little like an autocross course.

Who Wants a Mercedes Sprinter63 AMG?

Who Wants a Mercedes Sprinter63 AMG?
Yes, I know it’s April Fools’ Day, and this is not going to be a production car, unfortunately. The funny thing is this: whenever I see Bart Herring, Mercedes-Benz’ North American General Manager of Product Management, I make him try to make the case for a few stupid cars.

Mercedes Brings a 1930s Supercar Back to Life

Mercedes Brings a 1930s Supercar Back to Life
At the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance last summer, Mercedes-Benz showed off a beautifully restored 1938 540K Streamliner, which we chronicled here at 95octane. Now the car company has released a 45-minute companion documentary, following the tale from the discovery of a unique, mysterious chassis dating back to the ’30s to the reveal of the final, reconstructed automobile.

Mercedes-Benz AMG G63 6×6 Turns up on eBay

Mercedes-Benz AMG G63 6×6 Turns up on eBay
Mercedes-Benz and AMG only made a handful of its over-the-top G63 6X6 off-roaders before ending production, and presumably most of them went to sheiks, oil magnates and other insanely wealthy show-offs. And while Mercedes is now working on a 4×4 version of the 6×6 that’s based on a 4×4, you can actually own one of the proper 6x6s if you’ve got the cash.

Mercedes-Benz Autonomous Concept Spotted in SF

Mercedes-Benz Autonomous Concept Spotted in SF
As much as I like driving, I really like the idea of autonomous cars. I can see trips with the family being much more fun if I didn’t have to focus on driving and could focus on seeing the sights with my family.

The Best Sounding Emergency Vehicle

The Best Sounding Emergency Vehicle
With F1 cars losing much of their auditory joy, it’s nice to know that at least one car on the F1 circuit is still capable of making quite a ruckus. This Mercedes AMG C63 station wagon is used as an emergency vehicle on the Monza circuit, and it is more than capable of getting where it needs to go quickly thanks to its twin-turbocharged V8.

The Mercedes-AMG GT3 Looks Awesome

The Mercedes-AMG GT3 Looks Awesome
I’ll admit it: I’m a bit of a Mercedes fan-boy. I’m impressed by the company’s history, respect the dedication to automotive safety, love AMG’s craziness and willingness to make stupid cars like the R63, and am also a sucker for the trappings of the wealthy and dangerous.

Brabus Crams 850 Horses into the S63 AMG Coupe

Brabus Crams 850 Horses into the S63 AMG Coupe
The 2015 Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG Coupe is a beautiful car that ships from the factory with a 577 horsepower engine. When you tell it to go, it goes like a scirocco (the wind, not the Volkswagen).

Mercedes-Benz G500 4×4²

Mercedes-Benz G500 4×4²
Taking inspiration (and a number of drivetrain components) from its big brother G 63 AMG 6×6, the Mercedes-Benz G500 4×4² is a slightly more accessible version of the ultimate off-road Merc. Starting out with the boxy G-Class body, the 4×4 Squared borrows the portal axles found on the 6×6 and marries them with a 4.0-liter 422hp V8 under the hood.

The Mercedes-Maybach Pullman Is Glorious Dictator-Chic

The Mercedes-Maybach Pullman Is Glorious Dictator-Chic
We’ve all been waiting to see just how over-the-top and magnificent the Mercedes-Maybach Pullman would turn out to be, and now we can. It’s 21.3 feet of insane, private jet-like luxury, and it costs “around half a million euros.”

Mercedes-Benz SL 417 Mille Miglia Edition

Mercedes-Benz SL 417 Mille Miglia Edition
When you hear the words “Mercedes-Benz” and “Mille Miglia” you probably think “Sir Stirling Moss” and “722.” That’s because Mercedes PR likes sending out press releases about that particular man and his number, and the design team likes to make the occasional special edition celebrating him.
