    Excavator Callously Destroys Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG: Video

    When you first take a look at this video, you can't help but think it must be a joke. Surely that excavator isn't going to rip apart a $200,000 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG. Nobody could be so stupid. Well, they can. Next you think that they will stop and save some of the parts. Certainly they must be...

    Twin-Turbo Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Shoots Massive Flames On The Dyno

    The guys at RADO Motorsports tuning this twin-turbocharged 850-horsepower Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG might want to have a look at their decel map, judging by what happens as soon as they lift off the throttle on the dyno in this video. And yes, there's a dude sitting in the trunk (probably to aid...

    2015 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT Final Edition Makes Debut

    Since its launch four years, Mercedes-Benz’s SLS AMG gullwing coupe has spawned a handful of variants including a convertible, sportier GT, battery-powered Electric Drive, the insane Black Series, and the GT3 and GT3 45th Anniversary race cars. Now we’re witnessing the launch of the...

    Mercedes Reveals SLS AMG GT Final Edition Ahead Of L.A. Show

    It’s official boys and girls; the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG is on its way out, set to be replaced next year by a brand new sports car currently in the works at AMG’s Affalterbach skunk works. To give the SLS AMG the send-off it deserves--it is, after all, the first Mercedes gullwing in...

  • Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Black Series attacks the Nürburgring Nordschleife.

    Having spent some more time behind the wheel of the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Black Series on track recently (stay tuned for our write-up), we can vouch for the no-B.S. credentials of the car when pushed hard. Here, it's pushed beyond hard, well into crazy territory, on the Nürburgring Nordschleife. One of the best aspects of the video, even more than the triple-camera view, the data display, and the 10/10ths driving, is the soundtrack. No music, nothing to get in the way, just a big V-8 screaming toward its 8,000-rpm redline. In truth, the audio doesn't do the engine justice. It sounds even...

    2015 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG ‘Final Edition’ Spy Shots

    The Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG, the spiritual successor to the 300SL gullwing of the 1950s, will bow out of the market next year, with development of a new AMG sports car already well underway. However, Mercedes-Benz was never going to let such a historically significant model drive off into the sunset...

    2015 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT Roadster Spy Shots

    It might seem like the SLS AMG Roadster is still new, and truthfully, it is, having made its debut in late 2011, as a 2012 model. But Mercedes-Benz is planning a facelift for the car, as evidenced by these latest spy shots of a prototype. The updates are intended to keep the car looking fresh until...

  • 2013 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Black Series
    Mercedes-Benz Will Replace The SLS AMG, Just Not Right Away

    Yesterday we learned that the SLS AMG would be phased out soon, with its role as the flagship Mercedes-Benz sports car to be taken up by a smaller and more agile model likely to be called the AMG GT. Fans of the big gullwing needn’t be too sad, however, as a direct replacement is planned...

    HTP-Motorsport Drives Mercedes SLS AMG GT3 To Spa 24 Hours Victory

    Winning the Hungarian Grand Prix wasn’t the only reason for Mercedes-Benz to celebrate this past weekend. One of its race cars was driven to overall victory at the Spa 24 Hours, giving the German automaker its first victory at the Belgian endurance classic since 1964. The race car, a 2013...

    A Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Electric Drive has just been driven around the full course of the Nürburgring Nordschleife in a time of 7:56.234, setting a new record for a production electric car at the legendary German circuit. The overall electric car record still stands at 7:22.329, set by...

  • 2013 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Black Series

    Have we driven the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG enough? You tell us. We've flogged it in its debut form as a gullwing, as a roadster, as the new SLS AMG GT, and as a GT Roadster in a weekend joy ride. We've even driven the Tomorrowland edition, also known as the SLS AMG Electric Drive. We've chunked the treads off so many AMG tires...the metaphor eludes us. You could say we've met. So trust us when we tell you that the SLS AMG GT Black Series, the fifth Black Series model yet to erupt from Affalterbach, is the best SLS yet. It's not at all the one we'd tap for a street drive or a road trip. In the...

    Black Falcon Mercedes SLS AMG GT3 Driven To Overall Victory In Nürburgring 24 Hours

    2013 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT Roadster: Joy Ride

    We've spent a lot of time behind the wheel of the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG--back when it was a new gullwing, then as a roadster, when it underwent its mid-cycle refresh as the SLS AMG GT, and even for a spin in the battery-powered, half-a-million-dollar-pricetagged SLS AMG GT Electric Drive. So what...

    Chris Harris Drives The Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Electric Drive: Video

    Since its debut in Paris last year, there’s been little seen or heard of Mercedes-Benz’s new SLS AMG Electric Drive, which is probably due to the car not yet being confirmed for sale in the U.S. In addition, we doubt there will be many takers considering its 416,500 euro pricetag...

  • Bernd Mayländer with the 2013 SLS AMG GT F1 safety car
    Mercedes-Benz Tells The History Of The F1 Safety Car: Video

    In racing, a safety car is used to collect the race cars on the track following a yellow flag condition, generally for an accident, debris or rain. While the safety car laps the track at a much slower speed than the cars being raced, it must still maintain a brisk enough pace to keep tires warm and...

  • Gullwing America 300 SLC inspired by the 1955 Mercedes-Benz 300 Sc

    For those unfamiliar with Gullwing America, the company is a custom coachbuilder based in Germany whose claim to fame is building some delicious retro cars based on modern mechanicals. In the past, we’ve seen Gullwing come up with cars inspired by the original Mercedes-Benz 300SL and Ferrari 340 M/C of the 1950s, both of which were based on the underpinnings of the latest Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG. Now the company has released these preview renderings of its latest creation, another SLS AMG but with a roadster body inspired by the 1955 Mercedes-Benz 300 Sc. “We tried to keep the...

    It may seem like the life of a traveling auto writer is all unicorns, rainbows, and thumping V-8s (or V-10s or V-12s), but track-testing a new car can be tough. You have to learn a new track as you learn a new car, typically in a very short period of time and in a limited number of laps. In...

    AMG's Engine Testing Isn't Interrupted by Christmas: Video

    German engineers take their job very seriously, but Germans are also renown for embracing the Christmas season with gusto. That said, development and testing of the SLS AMG GT3 must go on, since the competition certainly won’t be taking any time off around the holidays if it means slower lap...

    One of the standouts of this week’s 2012 Los Angeles Auto Show was a bright yellow supercar from the tuning gods at AMG. That supercar is the new 2014 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Black Series, possibly the wildest and most capable car to ever emerge from AMG’s headquarters in Affalterbach...
