The finished product is a Mercedes-Benz 190E body set atop the chassis and powertrain of a previous-generation C63 from AMG. In other words...

  • 2019 Mercedes-Benz C-Class (C43 sedan)

    A web of country roads casts a romantic net between the alpha world cities of Paris and Frankfurt. Where maps pare down to two-lane roads, the Moselle Valley unfurls vast expanses of lush green carpet, sun-spotted by a yellow haze of wildflowers, lidded by a cobalt-blue sky. Lucky steers and heifers bask against the Windows XP backdrop. They might wonder what the rush of Mercedes sedans all means, if the local cud wasn't so obviously tasty. We snake through in a bullwhip of C300 and AMG C43 sedans, coupes and cabriolets, through towns where hopping preserves the last bits of local culture...

  • 2017 Mercedes-AMG C43 Coupe

    Its impossible not to notice that the 2017 Mercedes-AMG C43 has too much tire. The 225- and 245-millimeter, 19-inch Pirelli P Zero rubber sticks to the road like hot Doublemint, and the standard traction control setting has a short leash anyway. Back and forth in the C43 along coastal roads, we find investing too much into the throttle pays only small dividends. Every motion up and down the canyons of Southern California is quick and without drama, too. Nose in to a corner with too much gusto, and the front tires feel like they cut slip angle down to the Fed's fund rate. Too quick with...

    Mercedes-AMG is out testing a more hardcore version of its C63 Coupe. We don’t think the car is a successor to the previous C63 Coupe Black Series, though we think one will be dropped on us eventually. Rather, we think this will be a track-focused model dubbed the C63 R Coupe, following the...
