Cool AMG Coupe Coming Soon

Mercedes-AMG boss Tobias Moers had a recent interview with Top Gear magazine dropping juicy hints and details for the upcoming release of the ultra-premium Black series in AMG.

It seems the goal of the Black series is to take successful AMG models and push them to perfection with overhauls to make them more powerful, smoother and “balanced” as Moers put it.

We can expect the Black series to resemble previous well loved models, with a major tune up from bumper to bumper.

 

A new maximum-performance edition of the amazing Mercedes-AMG GT will hit dealers in 2018, Mercedes-AMG boss Tobias Moers told Top Gear magazine. The new Black Series will top even the incredible AMG GT R announced in June.

The upgrade will start under the hood, because even the GT R doesn’t make enough power for Moers’ liking. “I know the GT R chassis is able to handle more power,” Moers told Top Gear.

But this new flagship GT won’t just be a muscle car. We already know that AMG can build powerful engines, like the V8 in the 612-horsepower E63, but they are looking for balanced performance from the upcoming Black Series, he said. Continue Reading

AMG C43 a Smooth Operator

While the news is fixated on the AMG C63 being a modern muscle car of German make, the C43 almost slips under the radar.

The new C43 coupe is set to make the bridge point between classy comfortable smooth rides and blood boiling explosively fast V-8 Twin-Turbocharged Engine.

It’s made to look sleek, drive smooth, and roar when you need it to, the ideal car for someone who wants versatility out of their car.

 

Daimler’s Mercedes-AMG division has largely made its name on theatrics: things like burly sounding engines, flashy styling add-ons, and wild performance. It’s practically the German equivalent of classic American muscle-car culture, as we saw with the latest C63 S coupe. Its 503-hp, twin-turbocharged V-8 makes a beastly noise and goes like stink, while its rear-wheel-drive setup makes tail-out antics a snap. It also looks the business with huge wheels and flared haunches that set it apart from lesser C-class coupes.

While the new Mercedes-AMG C43 coupe shares all but one digit in its name, it’s really a completely different animal, one considerably lower on the food chain. Continue Reading

2017 S-Class and S63 AMG Caught Cruising Together

While we still eagerly await a full in depth reveal of the 2017 S-Class Mercedes, we have seen it drive along with its sibling the Mercedes S63 AMG.

The new S-Class will sport many of the features revealed with the new E-Class including a tasteful infotainment system that is integrated better than ever before. While your Mercedes might not match up to the 2017 S-Class with modern features, you could gear up that engine so your Mercedes too could enjoy the road along the S63 AMG.

 

The facelifted Mercedes S-Class was spotted during development testing in Southern Europe, along with its go-faster silbing, the mighty S63 AMG.

The German luxury flagship is set to receive a range of updates, including some of the advanced tech features that debuted in the E-Class. Things like touch-sensitive controls, a new three-spoke steering wheels and a new set of digital displays are already a given, thanks to our skilled spies’ previous efforts.

Being one of the most impressive features of the current model, the updated S-Class will host a pair of two new high-resolution screens with no buttons in between them, making them look more unified and elegant. The infotainment system will be controlled by the new touchpad knob on the center console. Continue Reading

AMG Branding Coming to a GLC Near You

The GLC Class cars from Mercedes have always been a little half and half, with a comfortable classy sedan style fused with the utility of a SUV making them a nice balanced mix of Soccer Mom and Middle Class Bachelor. But Mercedes has sweetened the pot with the upcoming 2017 GLC by stamping on the AMG badge and throwing a powerful engine in making this versatile car able to pull 0-60 in 4.8 seconds.

Of course the mechanically savvy could always soup up their GLC with a new Mercedes Engine for a cheaper price than buying the newest model.

 

Addiction to half-coupe, half-SUV models is a very real thing. BMW first fell when it released the X6, a crossover very similar to the larger X5, but with a swoopier rear-end that, while attractive, cut into cargo space and headroom. Mercedes followed with the GLE and GLE Coupe. But BMW did it again with the smaller X3, creating the X4. And thus, Mercedes must do the same, releasing the GLC-Class Coupe.

The differences between the GLC-Class and the GLC-Class Coupe, the base model of which debuted at the New York International Auto Show, are largely cosmetic. Continue Reading

The Slick New Mercedes-AMG GT R

While we’ve seen images floating around on the internet of this beauty of a car, the viciously green GT R has made its first public appearance stateside and a new chorus of attention is rising to meet it. The car is bound to catch eyes and turn heads with the vibrant green, and with the powerful engine it’s sure to be felt as it cruises around being hardly street legal and designed with racetracks in mind. With a car like this you are bound to burn through your tires and brakes as you test the limits.

 

You’ve seen this car before. The 2018 Mercedes-AMG GT R made its first official public appearance on June 24 at the Goodwood Festival of Speed. You probably recognize the GT R by its impossible-to-miss color, which is called AMG Green Hell Magno (no, not mango). But this awesome AMG just made its first visit to North America in California as part of Monterey Car Week. What better reason could there be to dredge it back up to the surface with a live image gallery?

At the heart of the GT R is a 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8 that puts out 577 horsepower and 516 pound-feet of torque. There are a host of changes versus more mundane AMG GTs to make the R worthy of its badge, all culminating in a 0-60 run of 3.5 seconds and a top speed of 198 miles per hour. Continue Reading

The Coolest Mercedes You’ll See this Year

If you hadn’t yet heard of or seen the Mercedes-AMG GT S, you should go look at some of the preview images of it floating around the net and then get back to me. Now that we’re all familiar, let’s remember that it’s a Mercedes and not a Jaguar or Porsche.

This monster is an outlier from Mercedes typical brand line, but that doesn’t mean it should be overlooked. It sports a whopping from the factory 193 MPH speed limit, zooms from 0 to 60 in 3.7 seconds, and the ground hugging center of gravity will ensure you fly down the road and feel the G forces of every wild turn. With a price tag hanging just a bit above $130,000, it’s no cheap ride – but certainly a good pickup for any sports car enthusiast.

Now considering few of us in the states can get away with maxing out that amazing top speed, and likely will never get a good chance to race it, it might be best to invest on overhauling your current Mercedes with a new top of the line Engine and reworking your suspension to get that low to the ground racer feel. You’ll thank me later when you’re not burning a gallon of gas every 18 miles.

 

The Mercedes-AMG GT S is not the car many expect from the tri-star folks. Far from the opulent S-Class and tot-toting GLS S.U.V., the two-passenger GT S clearly says “let’s race.” It’s speaking directly, and confidently, to the Audi R8 and Porsche 911.

“Something wicked this way comes — in yellow,” said an observer, gazing at the Mercedes simmering along the roadside. Indeed, this machine — replacing the longer gullwing SLS — cuts a seductive and menacing figure. The AMG Solarbeam paint on the test model I drove does look suitably wicked. I salute those extroverted souls who choose it over white or silver.

This is not an automobile for the masses, given prices that begin at $132,125. But that’s a bargain of sorts considering it is about 70 grand less than the asking price on the less-sophisticated SLS it replaces. Continue Reading

Images and statistics of the AMG GT R have been released onto the internet and it is quite the striking vehicle. Looking at the GT R it’s clear to see an intentional leap away from traditional Mercedes design style, making this one of their most mean and menacing vehicles they ever let loose into the market.

But don’t mistake the GT R for just being a a great looking car; it’s got a twin-turbo V-8 that is an improved version of the earlier AMG models. For those who can’t wait a year for the newest beast to hit the market, look into getting a modern engine in your Mercedes for that classic look and modern power promised by German engineering.

 

German design is supposed to be about restraint, about form following function. Bombastic flourishes and stylistic middle fingers are typically verboten; ­Mercedes- Benz design chief Gorden Wagener is fond of telling his staff to pull lines out of their designs. But with the AMG GT R, they went ahead and added a few, and you won’t hear us complaining. The be-winged, be-splittered GT R exudes just the right amount of menace for AMG’s new range topper.

Under that mile-long hood, the GT R sports a twin-turbo V-8 based on the one in lesser AMG GTs, but with a revised intake, new forged aluminum pistons, and a higher compression ratio. The ­output dial gets turned up, from 503 horses to 577, and from 479 pound-feet of torque to 516. A lighter dual-mass flywheel is said to engender quicker responses and powertrain feel akin to that of a naturally aspirated engine. The titanium exhaust pipes move to the center of the rear fascia, and the aural ex­peri­ence should be every bit as forceful as the visual one. Continue Reading

Sporting the latest AMG SPEEDSHIFT transmission, the 2018 GT R from Mercedes-AMG is going to offer one of the best rides from a sports car ever built. Seeing as every year these transmissions are even further perfected by Mercedes-Benz engineers, the 7-speed dual clutch coming with the 2018 GT R is one of the most exciting things we’re looking forward to on that model.

It’s arrived, AMG’s latest weapon, the very Green 2018 Mercedes-AMG GT R, designed to go head to head to head with Porsche’s 911 GT3 RS. At its heart is a handcrafted AMG 4.0L V8 Biturbo with output of 577 hp, which is 74 hp more than the previous top-of-the-range engine in the GT S. Peak torque of 516 lb-ft is available between 1,900 and 5,500 rpm.

The increase in performance was achieved with the help of new turbochargers with modified compressor machining, a smaller wastegate and new engine mapping. Boost pressure supplied by the turbochargers has been increased from 17.4 psi on the AMG GT to 19.6 psi. In addition, the exhaust ports have been optimized and the compression ratio modified.

The seven-speed dual-clutch transmission has been extensively revised by AMG, with modified hardware and software to make the transmission even more suitable for the racetrack. First gear in the AMG SPEEDSHIFT DCT 7-speed sports transmission has a longer ratio, while seventh gear and the final drive have shorter ratios to allow for more rapid acceleration. Continue Reading
