Mercedes-Benz S Class News

  • Charlie Sheen's Mercedes sedan pulled from a ravine, June 2010

    And so it came to pass, in the year of Our Lady Gaga 03 (commonly known as 2010), a plague settled upon the House of Sheen. The Patriarch (commonly known as Charlie) was beset by lawsuits and community theatre, and at some point, his automobiles launched a revolt. In layman's terms: a Mercedes S-Class has broken free of Charlie Sheen's garage in the middle of the night. And before you go jumping to conclusions, NO, it is not at all suspicious that the exact same thing happened to another S-Class sedan five months ago. Or that both times, Sheen left the keys in the ignition. Or that both cars...

    Charlie Sheen Is Smiling. Should We Be Concerned?

    Possible reasons that Charlie Sheen is smiling in the photo at the link below: 1. That whole business about his Mercedes S-Class tumbling over a cliff under very suspicious circumstances has been mostly forgotten. 2. The guy already has a new Mercedes sedan in his driveway. 3. As part of Sheen's...

    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...

    Mercedes-Benz Gets All Name-Droppy (We Know: SHOCKING)

    We get weird things in the mail: love letters, bomb threats, talcum powder that's pretending to be anthrax, except it smells like diaper rash, so, you know, FAIL. We also get press releases. Press releases are frequently dull, occasionally informative, and nine times out of ten, hilarious. But one...

  • Brabus SV12 R Biturbo 750 Mercedes-Benz S-Class

    So apparently, there was some sort of Scottish thing in New York last week: Sean Connery played host to the 7th Annual Dressed To Kilt fashion show at New York City's M2 Ultra Lounge this week. The charity show featured celebrities and athletes wearing Scottish designs and included runway appearances by Mike Meyers, Kellie Pickler and Joan Jett. We didn't attend, but we can guess what it was like: bagpipes, thistles, souvenir keychains of the Loch Ness monster. Totes thrilling. And as if the thought of buffet tables piled high with haggis weren't enough to make our stomach's churn, there's a...

    2011 Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG Keeps The Name, Goes 5.5-liter Turbo

    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...

  • Charlie Sheen

    Well, this doesn't sound suspicious AT ALL: A car that plunged down the side of Mulholland Drive on Friday morning is owned by actor Charlie Sheen, who reported the vehicle stolen, authorities said. Sheen called police about 5:15 a.m. to report a possible burglar on the premises of his Sherman Oaks home, said Los Angeles police Officer Bruce Borihanh. “That’s a hot prowl -- as in, ‘I think there’s someone in my garage,’” Borihanh said. The car, a Mercedes four-door sedan, was found 300 feet to 400 feet down near the 13300 block of Mulholland Drive in...
