    Mercedes-AMG, the performance arm of Mercedes-Benz, today unveiled the 2017 C43 coupe ahead of its public debut at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show. There is a little confusion surrounding this model, so let's clear it up. The C43 Coupe is basically the coupe version of the Mercedes-Benz C450 sedan, which itself is expected to be rebranded a Mercedes-AMG C43. Both share the same engine and most of their performance goodies, but the "43" represents the naming strategy for the less-powerful versions of proper AMG models moving forward. The higher-power models retain "63" in their names. The C43's...

  • 2017 Mercedes-AMG C63 S Coupe

    The Ascari Race Resort is a European country club for those who like to drive fast rather than golf. Situated in Malaga, Spain, near the Mediterranean Sea, it’s a playland for well-heeled Europeans to flog exotic machines, bask in the sun, and be pampered by the resort’s staff. Top Gear fans will recognize Ascari from the 2007 episode in which we met the Stig’s bikini-clad wife and watched the guys compare the Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG with the BMW M3 and the Audi RS 4. In the hands of the Stig, the C63 barely edged out the RS 4 but lost out to the M3 by five seconds in timed...
