Everything about this press picture of the Mercedes SL Designo Black Diamond Edition is perfect.
Let's be honest: "if you never go to sleep, Santa will never come" was about as convincing as "broccoli tastes good" or "you can't take a bunny to school" when you were a kid. One dad on the F1Technical.net forums has figured out the trick, though: make the bed look like a Mercedes W05 Formula One car.
There's an alternate universe version of Cadillac, one that borrowed from General Motors' best departments and built a car that beat Mercedes when it counted. Paul Niedermeyer from Curbside Classics explains the whole thing.
Two hundred and forty-eight miles an hour. That's how fast this car, the Sauber C9, screamed down the Mulsanne Straight at the 24 Hours of Le Mans back in 1989. And the motor that got it there was a twin-turbo Mercedes V8.
We've known that Mercedes F1 split their turbo in half, but this excellent tech video, put together by ex-F1 racer Martin Brundle and SkyF1, explains why it's just so effective.
Mercedes has been dominating F1 this season, and a big technical secret why has just come out — they split their turbo in half.
This is the battery pack for Mercedes' plug-in hybrid prototype from 1982. It weighs 1,322 pounds and it practically takes up a whole station wagon.
You're familiar with the term "land yacht" to describe huge, old, floaty American cars. The world's super-wealthy have a new class of vehicle. I'm calling it the Land Jet, and it's typified by the new 850 horsepower BRABUS S Class.
This is the new promotional video (and outstanding illustrations) for the 2014 Mercedes S-Class and it all makes no sense. But that's okay. Here's why.
Thirty years ago, Mercedes set a number of endurance records with the then-new 190E 2.3-16. They got world speed records at Nardo for 25,000 km, 25,000 miles, and 50,000 km. Here's what one of the many pit stops looked like.
Mercedes-Benz is on top of the luxury car heap in America, but not for the reasons M-B bosses want. They're the most stolen luxury cars in the country.
Mercedes-Benz designed a golf cart concept. It looks like they've finally accepted that their stereotypical customer is a thousand years old.
Starting in 2014, Mercedes AMG will supply engines to four of Formula One's 11 teams: McLaren, Mercedes, Force India, and Williams. It looks like the Germans are taking over F1.
Ever since the Maybach debuted, the Mercedes S-Class has slightly lacked in top-of-the-line prestige at Daimler-Benz. Judging by these interior shots of the new 2014 W222 S-Class, it looks like that’s finally changed. Now it's more like the hi-tech interior of a private jet, just as it should be.
Want to know how much the panoramic sunroof costs on the upcoming front-drive Mercedes CLA? How much will that rear spoiler run you? Now we know.
I just saw an old-school two-door G-Wagen hardtop a few blocks from this 190E, but this sedan is by far and away the most stereotypically German car I've laid eyes on in a long time.
