• Mercedes-Benz 190e 2.3-16v Ex-Niki Lauda 1984 for sale

    Niki Lauda is a living legend. The Austrian race car driver has three Formula One championships to his name, and he's considered one of the all-time greats. Immortalized as the foil to James Hunt in the motion picture "Rush," he is more known to race fans for driving for March, BMR, Ferrari, Brabham, and McLaren. He also had a memorable stint in a special Mercedes-Benz, and that specific car is now for sale. The car is quite remarkable to all fans of early DTM racing. It's a 1984 Mercedes-Benz 190E 2.3-16v that Lauda raced at the Nürburgring back in 1984. This wasn't a simple spec race...

    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-Benz safety systems simulator, 2011 Frankfurt Auto Show

    Modern racing videogames are getting pretty good these days, with handling and graphics capabilities that allow for a pretty realistic driving experience. It's also cheaper than racing for real, not to mention safer - "Life has no 'reset' button", they often say. We were glad of that little detail at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show today, where we test-drove Mercedes-Benz' safety systems driving simulator. To cut a long story short, we "crashed". The reset button was duly pressed, and we had another go. It was an interesting experience though, and showed us that modern cars really can help in...

    When we first heard about Mercedes-Benz's new Send2Benz service, we were slightly underwhelmed: sending a destination to your car's navigation system? That seems so 2009.

But on closer inspection, Send2Benz offers at least a few noteworthy features. For example, users can send an address from their iPhone contact list directly to mbrace, which is a nifty trick (although it's also built into the Google Maps app that comes with...
