Entry level goodness from renowned German tuners

We covered the Mercedes-Benz GLA Concept over a year ago when it made its debut, and then really went deep when we took Merc’s new crossover SUV to Coachella. With big sales surely on the horizon, it was only a matter of time until renowned German tuners BRABUS got their fine engineering paws on the vehicle. The [...]


Mercedes-Benz invited us to take their brand spanking new GLA crossover SUV to the Coachella Music & Arts Festival, with a pit stop in their futurist Advanced Design Studio dream factory in Carlsbad, San Diego.

Apple TV, refrigerator, Mac Mini computer & 800-horses of power

Benz's luxury flagship loses 2 doors, gains 4.6L Biturbo V8

The much anticipated S-Class Coupe was finally revealed by Mercedes-Benz at the Frankfurt Auto Show, and it is a beauty. Sure some spy shots had been captured of the long, swooping two-door beast, but the official concept is a stunner. Replacing the CL model, the  S-Class Coupe won’t try to be for Benz what the [...]


The quantum crushing engineers over at AMG have summited many a nerd apex.

Handbuilt V8 engine with 0-60 MPH In just 3.9-secs

We were in Hamburg, Germany when Mercedes-Benz unveiled its luxury flagship, the S-Class Sedan — which was labeled the most technologically advanced sedan ever built. Fireworks, an Airubs 380, Alicia Keys performing with the Hamburg Symphony Orchestra… it was pretty clear Benz was pulling out all the stops for what it considers the shining jewel [...]
