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).

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.

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.

PostHeaderIcon Official: Mercedes-AMG GT4 Customer Racing Car

mercedes-amg_gt4_1

They may have become businessmen in recent years, the masters of the luxury segment and the makers of some of the most lavishly equipped super saloons, but AMG engineers are still racing guys at heart. That’s why they just went ahead and made a new customer racing car in form of Mercedes-AMG GT4, even though no one really asked for it!

AMG basically saw the success of the GT3 model and decided what the hell, let’s make a GT4 version too for those who are into this category. The Mercedes-AMG GT4 is based on the production GT R and uses the same basic engine, but it’s been lightened and tuned and fitted with racing paraphernalia to meet the requirements and regulations of the international GT4 racing series.

And it’s because of those regulations that the R-based GT4 makes the same kind of power as a GT S, 375 kW (510 hp) and a maximum torque of over 600 Nm. The motor is mated to a sequential six-speed competition gearbox (transaxle) from the GT3 version, and a differential that is adjustable from the outside is employed for competition. Safety features include rollcage of high-strength steel, screwed onto the aluminium spaceframe, carbon driver safety cell compatible with the HANS (Head And Neck Support), extrication hatch in the roof and a powerful fire extinguishing system.

Mercedes-AMG GT4 customer racing car will be handed over to the buyers at the end of 2017.

PostHeaderIcon Smart Brabus ForTwo 15th Anniversary Editoin

15 Jahre smart BRABUS

Fifteen years ago smart, a city car maker with a pathological hatred of capital letters, hooked up with Brabus in a 50-50 partnership so that they might make their cars cool and desirable. Now they are celebrating staying with each other this long with a special limited edition called Smart Brabus ForTwo 15th Anniversary.

Designed to showcase what Brabus treatments can do for smart cars, the Smart Brabus ForTwo 15th Anniversary claims to be a sportscar for the city. That is a bold claim and they certainly can’t be using the term sportscar to describe this model in the sense that it’s fast since it comes with a 52 kW (70 hp) motor in the hottest version. But we have to say the unique looks and the exclusive interior appointments featuring leather and carbon fibrer do give this ForTwo a certain flair that makes it a cool urban runabout.

Smart Brabus ForTwo 15th Anniversary comes as a fortwo coupé or cabrio and with a choice of two turbocharged engines (66 kW and 80 kW) as well as in an electric drive variant (60 kW). Highlgihts include individual paint finish for bodypanels and tridion cell in “anniversary silver (shiny)”, leather appointments in espresso brown with BRABUS sports seats, and tailor made exterior style package. Production is limited to 150 units.

PostHeaderIcon Mercedes and Bosch Unveil Automated Valet Parking

Bosch und Daimler zeigen fahrerloses Parken im realen Verkehr: Weltpremiere im Parkhaus des Mercedes-Benz Museums

OK, if we’re honest this whole autonomous thing had not hit us that hard before we saw this. The Automated Valet Parking developed by Mercedes and Bosch is a great showcase of what this technology is capable of, and what it’s capable of is bloody witchcraft!

So here’s what Automated Valet Parking does in a nutshell: you and your better half arrive in the car equipped with the system, most likely an S-Class, you get off at the entrance, touch something on your smartphone, and the car goes off by itself, finds a parking spot, parks itself, and when you’re done shopping it comes and picks you up. And it’s intelligent enough not to hit anything or anybody while doing all this, and can even up and down multiple levels multistory to find a spot. See? Witchcraft.

Follow Our Channel for New Videos Everyday: Subscribe

Automated Valet Parking is demonstrated here at the Mercedes-Benz Museum where, from the beginning of 2018, visitors to the museum’s multi-storey car park will be able to experience the convenient service at first hand and avoid spending time parking their cars. Here’s a brief explanation of the system by Mercedes-Benz themselves:

Anyone can reserve a car using a smartphone app. The vehicle rolls into the pick-up area autonomously to start the journey. The return procedure is equally convenient: the customer parks the vehicle in the car park’s drop-off area and hands it back by smartphone app. After being registered by the intelligent system installed at the multi-storey car park, the car is started and guided to an assigned parking space. Driverless parking is made possible by an intelligent multi-storey car park infrastructure from Bosch in conjunction with the vehicle technology from Mercedes-Benz. Sensors installed in the car park monitor the driving corridor and its surroundings and steer the vehicle. The technology on board the car performs safe driving manoeuvres in response to the commands from the car park infrastructure and stops the vehicle in good time when necessary. The sensors for the multi-storey car park infrastructure and the communications technology come from Bosch. Daimler is providing the private museum car park and pilot vehicles, defining the interface between infrastructure and vehicle together with Bosch and adapting the sensor technology and software in the vehicles accordingly.

PostHeaderIcon 300,000th Mercedes G-Class Produced

Produktionsrekord für Offroad-Ikone G-Klasse: 300.000ste G-Klasse lief in Graz vom Band

The iconic Mercedes G-Class off-roader – also known as G-Wagen, big G, and G-Sizzle – celebrated a significant milestone this past week as the 300,000th production unit rolled off the production line at Magna Steyr in Graz. Originally conceived as a military vehicle, the G-Class went on to become one of the coolest, trendiest cars ever and is now the must-have accessory for the rich and famous. 

The milestone Mercedes G-Class is a G500 in the colour designo mauritius blue metallic with black leather seats and contrasting white stitching boasting an off-road package consisting of black 16-inch wheels with all-terrain tyres and a robust roof rack. If you fancy buying it, though, forget about it because this car was designed based on Facebook votes and is now embarking on a number of adventures to be featured on social media networks via hashtag #Gventure300K.

“The G-Class has been produced by Magna Steyr in Graz, Austria, on behalf of Mercedes-Benz since 1979. Today our off-road icon is more successful than ever. The production of 300,000 G-Class models is an impressive milestone. The team which has contributed substantially to this success includes employees who have been part of the story of the G-Class for 38 years. We have enjoyed decades of successful cooperation with Magna Steyr in the production of the G-Class,” explains Dr Gunnar Güthenke, head of the off-road product group at Mercedes-Benz.

PostHeaderIcon Mercedes E-Class All-Terrain 4×4² One-Off

g500-4x4-mercedes

Mercedes-Benz are not really known for their eccentricity, but every one in a while they let their engineers roam free and come up with some truly amazing stuff. This Mercedes E-Class All-Terrain 4×4² is one such thing, built a maverick engineers in his free time. 

Now, before you get too excited we should point out the wonderfully insane Mercedes E-Class All-Terrain 4×4² is a one-off, fun project with, at the moment, zero chance of production. That said, there are some words in the dark corners of the auto blogsphere suggesting the company’s top brass are actually considered making this car in extremely small numbers. Wouldn’t that be awesome?

Follow Our Channel for New Videos Everyday: Subscribe

As for what inspired the creation of Mercedes E-Class All-Terrain 4×4² besides its engineer love of odd things, the main influence has clearly been the G500 4×4², a limited-run SUV whose axles they have borrowed for the All-Terrain E. The rest of the car is an E400 All-Terrain, garnished with some stickers and extra large fender flares. Calling this thing an All-terrain is a bit of a misnomer seeing as the whole point of all-terrain cars is that they are not as tall and high-riding as SUVs. This one, though, is high as a Hummer. That quality – being high – is what we reckon the E-Class All-Terrain 4×4² shares with its creator!

x-class-0

The production version of the Mercedes X-Class pickup truck has finally been unveiled in Cape Town, South Africa, and the terrible cliche goes, it is the Mercedes of pickup trucks. There is actually a bit of truth to that, in that the 2018 X-Class is a head and shoulders above the other contenders in this segment in terms of luxury and quality. 

I mean, the cool and rather elegant looks aside, 2018 Mercedes X-Class boasts a pretty awesome interior that we’d be happy to have on our luxury sedans. And it’s a really premium place too, with three trim parts for the cockpit, six seat covers including two leather variants with contrasting topstitching, and two colours for the roof lining. The truck itself is available in three trims of Pure which is the base model, Progressive which is the mid-range version and top-of-the-line Power.

Engine-wise, the Mercedes X-Class launches with a common rail diesel X 220 d (120 kW/163 hp) and X 250 d (140 kW/190 hp) as well as a petrol engine (122 kW/165 hp) in selected markets. A top-of-the-range V6 diesel (190kW/258hp) will be released mid-2018 occupying a leading position in the segment. Also from launch customers can add accessories such as  styling bar, side bar, canopy, various covers as well as numerous cargo and off-road solutions. There is also 4MATIC all-wheel drive and a suit of safety features including Active Brake Assist, Lane Keeping Assist and Traffic Sign Assist, among others. So really, the X-Class is a very fine SUV with the rear part of the roof chopped away.

Mercedes X-Class is, of course, not targeted at your average peasant. The pickup will start at 37,294 Euro and goes up from there when it launches in November 2017 in Europe and later on in South Africa and Australia at the beginning of 2018, as well as Argentina and Brazil at the beginning of 2019.

PostHeaderIcon Susan Sarandon Is the Latest Mercedes-Benz Celebrity Catch

Susan Sarandon Mercedes EQ-0

Because of their deep involvement with the world of fashion, Mercedes-Ben often hooks up with high-profile celebrities who, in exchange for a big pile of cash, attend their events and promote their stuff. The latest catch is iconic actress Susan Sarandon who has done a photoshoot with Mercedes Concept EQ. 

This works on a number of levels, not the least of which is Ms. Sarandon’s affinity for environmental technologies. The Concept EQ showcases Mercedes’ latest advancements in this field with its battery-electric powertrain and general sustainability. But the car is also full of energy and sex appeal and life,kind of like Susan Sarandon herself who despite her advanced age is still astonishingly hot. That is why for this photoshoot they went for powerful red tones and expressive poses.

Susan Sarandon: “I’m so delighted to be part of the #mbcollective along with Bryn Mooser. Ever since I had the honour of appearing in one of Bryn’s extraordinary films, I’ve been observing his empathy and passion. I feel privileged to be taking part in the latest Mercedes-Benz Fashion Story as an ambassador for humanitarianism. I am proud be presenting the Concept EQ vehicle as part of the collaboration with Mercedes-Benz, because it is very important to me to promote sustainability.”

mercedes-v-class-mansory

Mansory is the next big time tuner to come up with an over-the-top, super deluxe, private jet-like treatment for the good old V-Class van. With exclusive exterior and interior appointments, as well as a decent performance boost, Mansory Mercedes V-Class, which is dubbed Lounge, is up there with the very best of them.

To make sure Mansory Mercedes V-Class Lounge stand out in a crowd and doesn’t get mixed up with a builder’s van or something the tuner offers a range of two-tone finishes, some with their signature colored carbon fiber accents usually reserved for the exotics and super cars. There is also an aero kit consisting of air ducts on the front apron with LEDs, front lip, mirror caps, rear diffuser, and tailgate and roof spoiler combo. Last but not least you get a set of bi-colour light-weight, multi-spoke 19 inch wheels.

The ample space in the back of Mansory Mercedes V-Class has allowed the designers to be as extravagant as they wanted. There are two comfort seats with reclining functions, central console with a wavy design, fine woods featuring strong grains, optional fridge and bottle holders, conference seats, touchscreens with Wi-Fi, seat functions, hands-free calling, and conference TV screen control, and of course, an abundance of leather. They haven’t forget the driver though, and give him a sport steering wheel, carbon shift paddles, aluminium pedals,and tons of leather and exquisite carbon trims.

Mansory Mercedes V-Classis based on the 250d model with the output upped to 250 horsepower and 500 Nm of torque, corresponding to a top speed of 210 km/h.

Exclusive-sporty-special-model-now-available-for-ordering-GLE-Coup-available-as-OrangeArt-Edition

Some may say this is putting lipstick on a pig – and a fat one at that – but if we’re honest this new cosmetic treatment for the big GLE does make things better styling-wise. The 2017 Mercedes GLE Coupe OrangeArt Edition is basically a Night Package car garnished with some orange accents.

On the outside Mercedes GLE Coupe OrangeArt Edition package offers a choice of cool paint jobs, including black, polar white, obsidian black, iridium silver, selenite grey or designo diamond white bright. These are complemented with black rings in the LED headlights, 21 inch AMG 5-twin-spoke light-alloy wheels in an exclusive high-gloss black painted finish with orange rim flange and the orange highlights on the front apron. It’s a subtle change, the addition of the orange stuff, but it has profound effects.

As for the interior, the unique package includes sports seats upholstered in black nappa leather/DINAMICA microfibre with orange piping and grey topstitching (exclusive to this model), orange piping, floor mats with AMG lettering and piping in orange and door centre panels with black DINAMICA microfibre and topstitching in grey, steering wheel in black nappa leather, the sports pedals in brushed stainless steel with rubber studs and aluminium trim with light longitudinal grain. Mercedes GLE Coupe OrangeArt Edition package is available for the 350d, 400, 500 and 43 AMG models.

50 Jahre Mercedes-AMG Feier im Rahmen des 24-Stunden-Rennen am Nürburgring

Daimler has planned many celebratory events for the 50th anniversary of Mercedes-AMG, the Affalterbach-tuner which was incorporated into the company half a century ago and since then has become the byword for high-quality performance driving. And they are kicking things off with a handy video highlighting the best products of the past 50 years. 

Mercedes-AMG will also mark the 50th anniversary of the brand with a number of limited editions and collector’s version of current models such as AMG GT3 Edition 50 with only five copies featuring bespoke exterior and interior appointments.

“Our strategic expansion of the product range has put us on course for success around the world. With more than 400 Performance Centres, we have also continued our expansion at the point of sales. The 63 series models still constitute our core model series, and delight car enthusiasts around the world. In addition, our sports car series, which was developed entirely in-house, is now available as a broad-based family, to which we will add a four-door variant next year, once more demonstrating our competence as a sports car brand. We will further expand our broad product range with a new product line in the compact segment. In this way we have set the course for continued sustainable growth. It is up to us to not only celebrate the success story of Mercedes-AMG now, but to help shape the performance of the future during one of the most exciting periods of automotive history,” says Tobias Moers, Chairman of the Board of Management of Mercedes-AMG GmbH.
