  • 2020 Mercedes-Benz CLA35 AMG

    It’s a chainsaw in a box, revving behind your right ear. It’s firm, direct, unflappable. The 2020 Mercedes-Benz CLA35 AMG is a dab of Gorilla Glue applied right to the road. With more power, a showy body kit, and a racier interior, the CLA35 plays the middle ground between the new CLA-Class and the even hotter upcoming CLA45 AMG. BMW’s M Sport and Audi’s S cars have sliced lineups more finely, and now Benz gets it too: There’s ample space between its more pedestrian cars and its trackable toys. On a long loop toward snow-sloppy Flagstaff with a boomerang back...

  • 2017 Mercedes-AMG G65

    Mercedes has a completely new G-Class for the first time since the boxy beast debuted in the 1970s. The V-12 does not return, at least for now, but the outgoing V-12-powered G65 remains a tremendously powerful, exceedingly expensive, and wickedly fast square box. It's too fast, it seems, when the shift lever is moved to R. A recall notice has gone out because the G65 needs to slow its roll when moving backwards. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and Mercedes-Benz USA have issued a recall notice for the 2017 Mercedes-AMG G65, and it's affects 20 vehicles in the U.S. The...

  • Mercedes-AMG Project One concept, 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show

    Despite a sleek body and the lack of a massive rear wing, the Mercedes-AMG Project One will likely produce around 1,500 pounds of downforce, if the car's latest weight estimate proves true. The new figure comes from Autocar, which reported on last Friday that AMG chief, Tobias Moers, said the Project One will generate “approximately half the weight of the car” in downforce. To get to the 1,500-pound figure, Moers confirmed the supercar will weigh between 2,866 and 3,086 pounds. That means the downforce figure could exceed 1,500 pounds. Moers didn't divulge any other...

    Turns out snow can conquer a Mercedes-AMG G63 6x6

    The Mercedes-AMG G63 6x6 is an absolute monster of a machine. You start with a regular G-Class, which is already a tough off-road-oriented beast with three differentials. Then, you add more power, more off-road ability, and an entire third axle. With the G63, you're unleashing a 544 horsepower...

  • Mercedes-AMG GT concept, 2017 Geneva auto show

    Mercedes-AMG is giving enthusiasts a reason to make the pilgrimage to the 2018 North American International Auto Show.
