  • 2011 Mercedes-Benz S65 AMG Coupe leak

    Mercedes-Benz has some major changes in store for its product line over the coming years, with several key models receiving facelifts and complete name changes. We have already seen this with the new 2010 E-Class Coupe, which has replaced the CLK, and soon we will see the CL name phased out with the introduction of a facelifted model later this year. The updated car will come in for the 2011 model year and go by the new name of S-Class Coupe. The current C216 CL was first introduced at the end of 2006 but prototypes for the facelifted version have been spotted testing in Germany as early as...

    Benz’s Historical Tribute: S63 AMG “Thirty-Five”

     Probably the most significant Mercedes-Benz from the 1960s has to be the 1968 300SEL 6.3. Benz took the giant 6.3L, fuel-injected V-8 out of their 600 limousine and stuffed it into the mundane W109 chassis. The results were amazing; it went 0-60 in 6.3 seconds and had a top speed of 142 miles an...

  • 2010 Mercedes-Benz S Class 4-door Sedan 3.5L V6 Hybrid RWD Angular Front Exterior View

    According to Mercedes-Benz dealer sources, news that the automaker is considering an all-hybrid lineup for its next-generation S-Class is true. A Mercedes-Benz spokesman admitted to MotorAuthority.com last week that an all-hybrid S-Class lineup was under serious consideration, though nothing had been confirmed. The reasoning is because of toughening fuel economy and emissions regulations coming into action across the globe. There’s also the matter that Mercedes-Benz wants to use its S-Class as a showcase of its future technologies and hybrids are one such technology that will be prevalent...

    Mercedes-Benz's latest line of 6.3-badged cars--the S63 among them--are actually powered by 6.2-liter engines, so perhaps it's not surprising that Mercedes is planning to keep the '63' naming convention despite replacing the engine with a new turbocharged 5.5-liter V-8. The new M157 5.5-liter turbo...
