PostHeaderIcon Mercedes-AMG G65 Final Edition Costs 310K EUR!

Actually, it’s 310,233 Euros. That is what you have to pay for the privilege of owning a Mercedes-AMG G65 Final Edition. That is if you can get one at all. The are only making 65 units of this special edition for obvious reasons. And the way these things work, most of them are already spoken for. 

Mercedes-AMG G65 Final Edition is a rare version of an already rare car. The V12-powered super SUV is a bit of a unicorn in the car world. Nothing else has a ladder chassis and 630 horsepower. But this muscular German somehow makes that combination work, and work brilliantly. You can tackle a fairly rough off-road course in this car, and then do 230 km/h (electronically limited) on the way back home. Zer ot 100, meanwhile, takes a mere 5.3 seconds.

So performance-wise, the car is pretty dope. But that is not all you get with the Mercedes-AMG G65 Final Edition. You also get exclusive looks. 21?inch 5?twin-spoke light-alloy wheels in bronze, silver brake callipers and AMG Sport trim strips on the sides are among the main highlights of the exterior. But we are more partial to the matte bronze accents on the underride guard, the trim elements in the bumpers, the wheels and exterior mirrors. These are complemented by the radiator grille with black mesh screen and surround painted in matt bronze. Matte black side pipes and obsidian black wheel cover are also notable.

As for the inside, designo Exclusive package in designo black nappa leather with seat side bolsters in a carbon-fibre look and topstitching in light brown is the first thing you notice. Then you find the decorative stitching in bronze, the milled Edition lettering in the grab handle plus floor mats with leather edging in light brown and topstitching in black. Special mention has to made of the AMG Performance steering wheel in black nappa leather featuring a flattened bottom.

PostHeaderIcon IMSA Mercedes AMG GT RXR One Wide Body

Motorsport looks with everyday practicality – sports car makers have been using this blend with great success for years. But wherever the manufacturer has dropped the ball a tuner has come in to pick up the slack.That is the case with IMSA Mercedes AMG GT RXR One. It looks as though Mercedes has made road-legal AMG GT3.

People like to look like they are brave and skillful without having to work for it or face any inconvenience. That is why they like cars that make them look heroic, even though underneath they are soft and comfortable machines no harder handle than a milk float. So don’t be fooled with the massive aero parts or the wide arches on IMSA Mercedes AMG GT RXR One. The car is still a sweet grand tourer at heart. It just happens to look like the bastard child of Godzilla and Predator.

Mind you, IMSA Mercedes AMG GT RXR does have some motorsport skills. It’s not all show. Stating with a AMG GT S, the tuner has replaced major body parts with lightweight carbon fiber pieces. So you have the weight advantage. Then there is the race car-grade aerokit, complementing the  adjustable race suspension, new axle parts and the forged aluminium wheels. The V8 engine is also improved with tweaked turbochargers and a new cooling system. Las but not least, you get track-ready Pirelli Pzero Trofeo R tires.

So if the AMG GT R is still a little too soft for you, it’s good to know there is an alternative in the RXR One.

PostHeaderIcon Mercedes-Benz to Launch 10 Electric Models by 2022

Mercedes-Benz announced today they are “on the road to the future” with a three-prong assault on emission and fuel consumption. The strategy road has three lanes in which they boost their development of electric cars, step up their hybrid game, and try to further enhance internal combustion engines to use less fuel and emit less CO2. The plan calls for the release of ten electrified models by 2022. 

They seem to be well underway to achieve that goal. Already Mercedes-Benz has a range of cars ready to hit the road boasting some form of electrification. You have the C 350 e (saloon, estate and long-wheelbase version for the Chinese market), GLE 500 e 4MATIC, GLC 350 e 4MATIC, GLC Coupé 350 e 4MATIC and E 350 e, plus the new S 560 e, all of which incredibly efficient cars with combined fuel consumption of around 3.3–2.1 l/100 km and combined CO2 emissions: 78–48 g/km.

But Mercedes-Benz commitment to clean motoring goes beyond that and includes fully electric models such as smart vision EQ fortwo and Concept EQA, revealed at this year’s IAA, plus GLC F-CELL which shows Daimler has not yet given up on hydrogen fuel cells. What’s more, Mercedes-Benz Vans is developing fully electrically powered Vito and Sprinter model series vans. As for the old-fashioned internal combustion engines, Mercedes is on the search for new technologies to make their petrol and diesel units more efficient. Some of the new advances include NANOSLIDE cylinder wall coating, starter alternator (EQ Boost), 48-volt on-board electrical system and electrical booster compressor.

“All systems are go. We are investing more than ten billion euros in the development of our EQ vehicle portfolio alone,” says Ola Källenius who has been responsible for Daimler Group Research and Mercedes-Benz Cars Development since the start of the year. “By 2022 we will be bringing more than ten different all-electric vehicles to market. We will also be electrifying the entire Mercedes-Benz portfolio and our customers will thus have the choice of at least one electric alternative in every Mercedes-Benz model series, taking the total to 50 overall.”

PostHeaderIcon Maybach G650 Landaulet Fetches €1.2 Million in Charity Auction

I’m sure you remember the Mercedes Maybach G650 Landaulet because, well, how can one forget such a thing. The G650 is a super-deluxe off-roader produced in very limited numbers. All G650 Landaulets were pre-sold by the time the car was revealed except for the last one, which has now been auctioned off for a tremendous price. 

Auctioned by Bonhams to benefit Laureus Sport for Good, a foundation of which Mercedes-Benz is one of the founders and biggest supporters, the 99th Maybach G650 Landaulet was bought by a Belgian gentleman who paid the princely sum of 1,200,000 EUR for it. That is almost twice what the other 98 Landaulets cost their lucky owners, although those cars didn’t support a good cause like this one.

Sitting 5.3 meters long and 2.2 meter tall, the Mercedes Maybach G650 Landaulet is one the result of one of those rare and glorious moments where the accountants and marketing experts are shut away in the closet, and engineers and designers are given free roam. The car defies almost all logic, mixing elements that wouldn’t normally pair. Powered by a 630 horsepower V12 engine, the mammoth off roader features a cabin environment that puts the most luxurious private jets to shame. We have to say though, it does have an unsightly fabric roof in the back. But that’s a small price to pay for having an open top section in the back where you can stand and shoot at your favorite game while travelling across the African Sahara.









“Today fascination with the G-Class is more prevalent than ever”, says Gunnar Güthenke, Manager of Mercedes-Benz G GmbH. “It is a sought-after vehicle as it is forever reinventing itself – and yet remains true to its origins. It was and always will be unmistakably a G-Class, while at the same time offering plenty of opportunities for individual wishes. Our exclusive Landaulet model is the best example of this.”

PostHeaderIcon Justice League Superheroes Drive Mercedes-Benz in New Movie

German car makers have a long history of partnership with Hollywood blockbusters. It’s a fruitful relationship for the studio and the car maker, but leaves the unsuspecting movie goer wondering why is everybody in this movie driving the same make of cars? The latest flick to get monopolized is the upcoming superhero movie JUSTICE LEAGUE which has hooked up with Mercedes-Benz. 

Now, you might remember Mercedes-Benz as an inseparable part of Jurassic Park. But they are wealthy enough to carry many franchises at the same time. And just as Audi added wasn’t satisfied with Ironman and went to get Spiderman, so did Mercedes made an exclusive deal with Warner Bros. studio to become the sole car supplier for the comic adventure Justice League.

So Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash will drive the new E-Class Cabriolet, the Mercedes-Benz AMG Vision Gran Turismo with its new interior developed for this film, and the G-Class 4×4. The E-Class Cabrio, as it turns out, is going to establish itself as the car of choice for powerful women. So naturally, it’s the personal ride of the Wonder Woman. The Mercedes-Benz AMG Vision Gran Turismo, the sickest car of the lineup, is reserved for the sickest Justice League superhero of them all, Batman. It’s his daily driver, not the replacement for the Batmobil, although the Vision looks crazy enough to play that role as well.











“With JUSTICE LEAGUE, we found the perfect partner to highlight our current vehicles as well as communicate the fascination of our brand. The E-Class Cabriolet is a natural fit for Wonder Woman,” says Dr. Jens Thiemer, Vice President Marketing Mercedes-Benz Cars“ . And who other than Bruce Wayne, aka Batman, would be more inclined to drive a car like the Mercedes-Benz AMG Vision Gran Turismo? We are therefore highly excited to partner with Warner Bros. Pictures on this much-anticipated movie as we reach out to as many people as possible with a creative and innovative campaign.”

PostHeaderIcon Autonomous Mercedes S-Class Goes on “Intelligent World Drive” Tour

Five continents in five months, crossed autonomously. That is the goal of Mercedes-Benz Intelligent World Drive which kicked off yesterday in Frankfurt. The test vehicle is an autonomous Mercedes S-Class based on the new 2018 model, and it is trusted with the job of showing the world proving that autonomous driving is a viable and workable idea. 

In this gargantuan challenge the autonomous Mercedes S-Class will face a number of challenges, chief among which a variety of traffic situations in different cities. The data gathered by the car during this tour will be treasure trove for the engineers working on perfecting self-driving cars. After the launch in Germany, October will see test drives in China, followed by others in Australia in November and South Africa in December. The final stop of the Intelligent World Drive tour will be the CES in Las Vegas in January.

Each leg of the tour is about testing a different aspect of self-driving technology. The autonomous Mercedes S-Class will study specific driving behaviours on motorways and in traffic jams in Germany. In China it will monitor driving behaviour in the dense traffic of Shanghai. Other places such as Sydney or Cape Town will challenge the mapping system provided by HERE and used by the system. he test drive in the Los Angeles area and afterwards on to Las Vegas will concentrate on an evaluation of driving behaviour in dense urban traffic and traffic jams as well as traffic overtaking on the right on highways.

“Progress must not stop at national borders. Legislation must keep pace with technological development. Otherwise it will not be possible for important innovations in automated and autonomous driving to hit the road,” says Renata Jungo Brüngger, Member of the Board of Management of Daimler AG, responsible for Integrity and Legal Affairs. “Legal certainty is essential for the acceptance of autonomous driving in society. So we quickly need further international harmonisation of the legal framework.”

PostHeaderIcon What You can Expect from 2020 Mercedes S-Class?

I know that it was only a short while ago when Mercedes-Benz revealed a new, refreshed S-Class. But already they are at work preparing the next model which is reportedly set for debut in about two years. Mules have already been dispatched testing the new technologies 2020 Mercedes S-Class will boast.

Before we get to the tech stuff, which is always the main highlight of any new S-Class, it is worth noting that the 2020 Mercedes S-Class is going to be remarkably larger than the current version and more spacious inside, too. The test mules spotted out and about feature flared arches and buffed up fenders, suggesting a wider track for the big S. As for the design, while it is not likely that a major overhaul is one the cards, you can expect the usual nip and tuck resulting in an overall smoother, more elegant look.

As for the technologies, the emphasis with the 2020 Mercedes S-Class will be on fully autonomous driving. The car will feature new systems designed to enable full autonomy in the near future. They include Distronic Active Proximity Control and Active Steer Assist system. and new version of Drive Pilot system with satellite-link guidance system. The new S-Class is expected to be at least Level 4 autonomous which is a big leap from the current model which is a Level 2.

The next S-Class will also be the model that steps up the company’s electrification game. Already, we have a semi-electric Mercedes S-Class in form of the 560e plug-in hybrid. But the word is the next model is gunning for a full-electric model like Tesla Model S, even though there are major concerns about interior space and compromises on luxury with such a model.

PostHeaderIcon 2018 Mercedes Sprinter Previewed at North American Commercial Vehicle Show

As some of you may know, the Mercedes Sprinter van is these days better known as a super-deluxe personal bus thanks to all those tuners who convert it and “pimp it out.” So maybe that is the reason Mercedes-Benz has put a lot more effort than usual in the design of the Sprinter to make sure it looks cool and athletic. 

Previewed during a press conference at North American Commercial Vehicle Show (NACV), the 2018 Mercedes Sprinter truly is the Benz of vans. The vehicle is shown here in panel van guise, but even so, one can’t help admiring the sharp design of the headlights, the impressive grille, and the bumpers which appear to have been lifted straight from an AMG car. What is more, the new Sprinter will come with advanced driving assistance systems and connectivity services in combination with new telematics that, says Mercedes, will result in a leap forward in efficiency for vehicle and fleet management.

Technical specs of of the 2018 Sprinter are yet to be revealed, but you can expect a range of efficient diesel and petrol engines, plus, maybe, a hybrid powertrain. The van has been one of the top players in the segment since its introduction in 1995, with a total of more than 3.3 million units delivered to over 130 countries.

The introduction of the new Mercedes Sprinter is also a reinforcement of the company’s commitment to the the future initiative adVANce:

It aims at megatrends such as digitalization and urbanisation. The accompanying realignment of the company is driving forward the transformation from purely a vehicle manufacturer to a provider of complex, comprehensive mobility solutions. The first new model to represent this further development is the new Sprinter.

PostHeaderIcon 2019 Mercedes-Benz S560e Plug-In Hybrid Announced

One of the Mercedes-Benz debuts at this year’s IAA Frankfurt Motor Show which didn’t get the attention it deserved was this new S-Class. The 2019 Mercedes-Benz S560e is a plug-in hybrid version of the new S-Class set to go no sale in the U.S. in about two years. And as you would expect it is poised to be at the top of the game. 

It’s funny, but by today’s standards of EVs and fuel cells the technology in the 2019 Mercedes-Benz S560e seems kind of out dated. It features a hybrid transmission with the electric motor integrated into the torque converter. But it’s a revised and refined system, and as such it returns some decent performance and economy numbers. The system consists of a 362 hp V6 petrol engine and a 90kW electric motor which provides 25 miles of electric driving. Meanwhile, the 9G-tronic transmission propels the car from 0 to 60 in 4.5 seconds and on to a top speed of 155.

But an efficient powertrain is only part of the eco-goodness you get with the 2019 Mercedes-Benz S560e. The luxury sedan has an intelligent ECO Assist system that utilizes functions such as gliding and recuperation through the use of navigation data, traffic sign recognition and information from the intelligent safety assistants (radar and stereo camera) to save fuel.It comes with a haptic accelerator pedal which lets you know when to release it. There’s also visual alerts and stuff in case the pulsating pedal fails to grab your attention.

Being an S-Class, the 560e will be full of comfort and convenience features. One example is the extended pre-entry climate control that includes heated seats, steering and armrests. The car also comes with an onboard 7.2-kW charger that allows for fast charging of the battery. In short then, the 2019 Mercedes-Benz S560e Plug-In Hybrid appears to be the best compromise between power,luxury, and efficiency you can expect at least until the next decade.

PostHeaderIcon Mercedes-AMG Project ONE Officially Unveiled

So finally, after what seemed like ages, Daimler finally unveiled the Mercedes-AMG Project ONE rather unceremoniously at the IAA 2017. Well, they brought out Lewis Hamilton who ridiculous new pair of glasses, but other than that the 1000+ horsepower hyper machine didn’t get much special treatment.

This Mercedes-AMG Project ONE is still a showcar and the final customer version may differ slightly. But the specs are confirmed, and boy are they amazing. The ONE gets a high-performance plug-in hybrid drive system with a 1.6-liter V6 single turbo engine and a couple of electric motors. They work in extremely complicated ways, but enable the engine to rev up to 11,000 rpm. The F1-based system has an output of more than 1,000 horsepower while remaining very, very fuel efficient.

Unveiling Ceremony:

The job of propelling the Mercedes-AMG Project ONE forward is trusted to Variable AMG Performance 4MATIC+ all-wheel drive with hybrid-drive rear axle, electrically driven front axle and torque vectoring, coupled with an Automated AMG SPEEDSHIFT 8-speed manual transmission. Together they give the car a 0 to 200 km/h (yes, 200) sprint time of (in Race Start mode) under 6 seconds! Top speed is limited to 350 km/h, but you get 25 km of pure electric range.

Photo Album:

Being an F1-wannabe for the road, Mercedes-AMG Project ONE features a tonne of carbon fiber in its construction – even in the wheels – and benefits from racing-grade chassis and suspension systems. And of course, it looks the part with a spaceship-like exterior and F1-like interior complete with a racing steering wheel. But because it’s a Mercedes you also get air conditioning system, power windows and COMAND infotainment. Pricing and availability are yet to be confirmed.

PostHeaderIcon Brabus Mercedes-AMG G65 with 888 Horsepower!

German tuner Brabus has a very special “ONE of TEN” badge which they use very rarely and only for their most extreme creations. Now that is what was called for when they finished the new Brabus Mercedes-AMG G65, stepped back and looked at it. This bad boy is quite possibly the most extreme luxury SUV ever created anywhere in the world. 

If you doubt that just look at the figures: 6.3 liter V12 engine (upped from 6.0 liter), 888 horsepower, 1,500 Nm of torque (limited to 1,200), 3.9 second sprint from 0 to 100 km/h, a price tag of €666,000 ($800,000). Nobody needs something like this, but everybody wants it. The extremely lucky ten who will get this thing may find it a bit under whelming to look at though, even though Brabus Mercedes-AMG G65 900 does get some unique styling touches.

The most prominent feature of this monster that set it apart from other Brabus G-Wagens is the mad bonnet which is basically a huge carbon fiber air intake. There is also flares and strakes and scoops everywhere you look, and of course you get a set of humongous monoblock wheels in dark or shiny finish. But still, to an uninterested eye Brabus Mercedes-AMG G65 looks like a G-Class with a fairly ugly bonnet.

The exterior may be a bit confusing, but there will no doubt as to the class and prestige of Brabus Mercedes-AMG G65 once you step inside and check out all the new leather and fancy stitching, the individual back seats with the Maybach style console in the middle featuring a fridge and multiple displays and the drinks cabinet in the boot.

PostHeaderIcon 700-hp Brabus Mercedes-AMG E63 S Revealed

The latest offering from the house of Brabus is an insanely powerful Mercedes sedan. I know that doesn’t narrow it down much, so here’s another clue: it’s based on an E-Class. The new Brabus Mercedes-AMG E63 S 700 is going to be one of the hottest tuner cars at this year’s Frankfurt Motor Show. 

It’s amazing how much power these Germans can extract from just 4 liters. Powering the Brabus Mercedes-AMG E63 S is the well-known AMG 4.0 liter twin-turbo V8 engine which they have upgraded by 87 horsepower to 700 HP (691 bhp). The torque has also risen from 850 to 950 Nm (701 lb-ft). Combine that with the E63’s standard performance-oriented all-wheel-drive system and you get 0 to 100 km/h in a pulverizing 3.2 seconds. Sadly the top speed is limited… to 300 km/h (186 mph).

Photo Album

As with all super sedans from this firm, Brabus Mercedes-AMG E63 S 700 gets a host of other upgrades besides the power kit. There is a custom exhaust system with bespoke tailpipes, 21 inch lightweight Monoblock “PLATINUM EDITION” forged wheels with high-performance Yokohoma or Continental tires, Brabus suspension module with 20mm reduction in ride height, and an aero kit featuring carbon front and rear spoilers, diffuser unit with integrated tailpipes, side skirts and strakes, and an awesome grille.

Brabus also offers its customers unlimited customization when it comes to the interior design. The company’s upholstery shop creates exclusive BRABUS fine leather interior appointments from the finest leather and Alcantara. You can choose you own colors and designs, and garnish them with stainless scuff plates with backlit BRABUS logo,aluminum pedals, carbon inlays, and…

PostHeaderIcon 2018 Mercedes S-Class Coupe and Cabrio Go Official

The regular – if you can call a 100+ grand open-top luxury cruiser regular – versions of the 2018 Mercedes S-Class Coupe and Cabrio have been revealed ahead of their IAA debut. Along with their AMG brethren, these cars make up a four-strong lineup of sexy, ultra-luxury long-distance cruisers with top-of-the-line features.

The normal 2018 Mercedes S-Class Coupe and Cabrio will be available with a choice of two engines. You have the S450 4MATIC with a 3.0 liter 370 hp V6 engine capable of 500 Nm torque, and the S560 which can be fitted 4MATIC as option and delivers 470 hp/700 Nm from a 4.0 liter V8. Performance-wise you can expect a 0-100 km/h time of 5.5 seconds for the 450 and 4.6 seconds for the 560. The figures are roughly the same for both coupe and convertible models.

Larger air intakes, a more prominent grilles, new design wheels, and sleeker aero parts are among the main highlights of design for 2018 Mercedes S-Class Coupe and Cabrio. But what gets the cake as the top feature is the new OLED tail lgiths, featuring 66 ultra-flat OLEDs act like floating elements inside the tail lamp. They have a really cool look about them and emit a highly homogeneous light pattern in all directions and form a unique day and night design.

As for the interior, it is characterised by the two new high-resolution and brilliant displays, each with a screen diagonal of 12.3 inches. Visually, the two displays under one shared glass cover blend into a Widescreen Cockpit and as a central element consequently emphasise the horizontal orientation of the interior design. You get a wide range of options for styling the cabin, with the best ones being new upholstery lines (designo Exclusive nappa leather AMG Line Plus porcelain/tizian red, designo Exclusive nappa leather porcelain/tizian red and designo Exclusive nappa leather AMG Line Plus Bengal red/black).

All S-Class models are equipped with the latest-generation infotainment system COMAND Online, starting a new era in digitisation and connectivity. Near Field Communication transforms the smartphone into a digital vehicle key.They also benefit from ENERGIZING comfort control (optional extra) which links various comfort systems in the vehicle together. It systematically uses the functions of the climate control system (including fragrancing) and the seats (heater, ventilation, massage), the panel heating as well as lighting and musical atmospheres to set up a unique feel base don your mood.

PostHeaderIcon 2018 Mercedes-AMG S63 and S65 – Coupe and Cabriolet

So with only a few days to go until the Frankfurt Motor Show Daimler revealed one of their hottest debuts of the event. The new 2018 Mercedes-AMG S63 and S65 Coupe and Cabriolet models arrive with refreshed looks, new technologies, and upgraded mechanics. 

Design-wise, what you get is a slightly revised version of the old model, although the Panamericana radiator grille does give the Mercedes-AMG S63 and S65 Coupe and Cabriolet a distinct look. One major highlight of the new version is the the OLED (organic light-emitting diode) rear lamps which you can expect to see in other models pretty soon. The same evolutionary approach to upgrade applies inside the cabin where you get the same familiar design and colors, but somehow it’s nicer and better and cooler.

We are particularly fond of the macho steering wheel and the large infotainment screen with the latest iteration of COMAND system. Other stand-out features of the AMG S-Class Coupés and Cabriolets include the numerous high-sheen chrome design elements (S 65) on the front, sides and rear. These are particularly effective in combination with dark paint colours.

But as with all AMG models the 2018 Mercedes-AMG S63 and S65 Coupe and Cabriolet are all about the engine. Once again, the V8 S63 proves so excellent in every way, once has to question the logic of even presenting an S65. The 4.0-litre V-8 with direct injection, biturbo forced induction and cylinder deactivation in the S63 delivers 612 hp and 900 Nm of torque, whereas the 6.0-litre V-12 with port injection and biturbo forced induction churns out 630 hp with just over 1,000 Nm torque.

What’s more, the S63 benefits from AMG Performance 4MATIC+ all-wheel drive with fully variable torque distribution and AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 9G, while the S65 gets rear-drive and AMG SPEEDSHIFT TCT 7G. As a result the cheaper model hits 100km/h from 0 in 3.5 seconds while the big dog takes 4.1 seconds. The figures are pretty much the same for both coupe and convertible variants.

PostHeaderIcon Mercedes-AMG G63 and G65 Exclusive Edition

This year’s Frankfurt Motor Show (IAA) will see the debut of yet another special edition G-Wagen. This time its the AMG versions getting a treatment called the Exclusive. 2018 Mercedes-AMG G63 and G65 Exclusive Edition models feature only cosmetic upgrades inside and out. 

You all know how brilliant these cars are technically. So let’s cut to the chase and see sets Mercedes-AMG G63 and G65 Exclusive Edition apart from the other thousand different variations out there. The shared highlights between the two include an underride guard of stainless steel, AMG racing stripes on the sides, rub strip inserts in a dark aluminium look and for the first time a spare wheel cover painted in the vehicle colour. They also get AMG light-alloy wheels with tyres of size 295/40 R 21, but the design differs slightly.

On the G63 the 5-twin-spoke light-alloy wheels are painted matt black with a high-sheen finish. The G65 meanwhile gets ceramically polished light-alloy wheels. There is also the option of high-sheen rim flanges, and side rub strips with inserts in carbon-fibre look, and AMG monza grey magno matt paint finish. These conclude the exterior upgrades, so it’s now down to the interior to justify the insane price – 163.125,20 euros for the G63 and 287.658,70 euros for the G65.

So, the interior highlights of Mercedes-AMG G63 and G65 Exclusive Edition. The main features here is the designo Exclusive package with two-tone leather-trimmed instrument panel and AMG sport seats with two-tone leather upholstery. There is also a variety of new colors for the two-tone designo nappa leather and diamond pattern stitching. You also get AMG carbon-fibre or black designo piano lacquer trim and Seat Comfort package as standard. Red designo seat belts, leather-trimmed grab handles in the headliner and a two-tone AMG Performance steering wheel matching the seat colours are among the other cool additions to these models.

PostHeaderIcon Brabus Mercedes S65 Cabrio ROCKET 900

This year’s IAA Frankfurt Motor Show will see the debut of a new Brabus Rocket. The insane Brabus Mercedes S65 Cabrio Rocket 900 is the most powerful and fastest convertible car in the world while being decadently luxurious.

That’s how Brabus cars are though. They are the ultimate blend of power and speed and luxury. We would have include style in there as well, but not everybody agrees on that one. Sure, Brabus Mercedes S65 Cabrio Rocket 900 looks and mean angry. But calling it pretty would definitely be a stretch.

Anyway, to more important stuff… Brabus Mercedes S65 Cabrio Rocket 900 features a 900 hp/1,500 Nm V12 turbo engine. That Godly power enables the cabrio to sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.9 seconds and reach a tops peed of over 350 km/h. Were it four-wheel-drive, this Rocket would have been a lot quicker. Other highlights include a complete carbon aero kit with bespoke parts tailored for the S65 and 21 inch wheels. You also get uprated suspension and brakes, and a bespoke interior designed to your taste.

Brabus Rocket models are extremely models produced in limited numbers. Pricing normally starts from half a million Euro and go up based on your specs. We will bring you more on this one at the IAA 2017.

PostHeaderIcon smart vision EQ fortwo Concept

Daimler sub-brand smart has big plans for the future and they are letting us in on some of it with this little thing. It’s called the smart vision EQ fortwo and it previews what intelligent autonomous mobility will be like in the year 2030. Apparently it’s going to be quite funky.

smart vision EQ fortwo is basically an autonomous pod that accommodates up to two adults in relative comfort as they hop around the town doing work or being social. The car, if you can call it that, is also fully connected and can arrange meetings for you or suggest places to go. And best of all, it is shareable based on the car2go concept, which is great for traffic and pollution and everything, but robs you of the privacy and freedom and security of a personal car. In essence, this is just a fancy taxi with no annoying driver trying to make small talk all the time.

CASE – connectivity (Connected), autonomous driving (Autonomous), flexible use (Shared & Services) and electric drive systems (Electric) – is the new line of thinking at Daimler regarding future mobility solutions which has spawned the smart vision EQ fortwo. It combines all the latest technologies and puts them in a pot, shakes and stirs them, and spits out stuff like this concept which is logically flawless. It’s clean, autonomous, efficient transport for the urban environment. What’s not to like? The thing is, the concept of ‘personal car’ is still far too important to many people to let it go for something so soulless, no matter how technologically brilliant it might be.

PostHeaderIcon Official: Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 Cabriolet

Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 Cabriolet-0

As promised by a very intriguing teaser, Daimler dropped a new version of the Maybach 6 concept at the 2017 Pebble Beach Concourse. The new Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 Cabriolet still look like a sail boat with wheels, but it’s 110 percent hotter than its hard-roofed sibling. 

And it’s not an exact copy of the coupe with the roof photoshopped out, either. Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 Cabriolet comes with a number of new highlights, especially inside the cabin which is designed to offer “360° open-air luxury lounge” feeling. It features high-end materials such as  rose gold for the trims, quilted crystal white nappa leather with Mercedes star buttons, and open-pore wood floor with inlaid aluminium, not to mention some nice and elaborate ambient lighting trickery.

Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 Cabriolet is so called because it measures a staggering six meters in length. True to its luxury yacht aspirations, the car carried only two passengers and features dark blue paintwork in “nautical blue metallic” and chrome highlights. The 24 inch centerlock wheels is a car-like features you might appreciate. Maybach 6 Cabrio is powered by four compact permanent magnet synchronous electric motors for  550 kW (750 hp) of all-wheel-drive power, delivering a 0-100 km/h time of under four seconds and governed top speed of 150 km/h. The range is 500 km or 200 miles and there is a quick charging system which gives you enough juice in five minutes to cover 100 km.

PostHeaderIcon Mercedes-Maybach 6 Convertible Teased for Pebble Beach 2017

Mercedes-Maybach 6 Convertible-teaser-1

A year after the debut of Mercedes-Maybach 6 at the 2016 Pebble Beach Concourse, the company is now bringing a convertible version to this year’s event. Now does this mean the next iteration will be a production model? Well, let’s just say they wouldn’t have gone to the trouble making two of these things if it were just a show car. 

While it is not hard to imagine what this Mercedes-Maybach 6 Convertible might look like, and indeed there are a whole bunch of renderings on the web to give you a speculative early look, we are still pretty excited to catch a glimpse of this super deluxe open-top cruiser with its huge bonnet, exquisite wheels, and lounge-like interior.

What we like best about this whole Mercedes-Maybach 6 project is that it tries to bring back the splendor of classic luxury saloons from the 20s and 30s but in a contemporary guise. Even if this thing remains a show car, we’d still say kudos to Mercedes-Benz for trying to liven up our lives with such a majestic creation in this age of downsizing and minimalism. And if the 6 became a limited edition production model, well, we’re going to be envious of the very few who will be able to pay the six or maybe even seven-figure sum that the car would definitely cost.
