Daimler Reports Strong Profit in Second Quarter of 2014

MEC Design Releases New Mods for the Mercedes S63 AMG

MEC Design, a European tuning company known for its excellent modifications on Mercedes-Benz vehicles, showed us its CCd5 wheels for the W222 Mercedes S63 AMG from the meCCon Series last May.

The package nicely complements an S63 with black finish, but it contrasts well with white and complements with other finishes too.

A mean-looking Mercedes SLS AMG was recently spotted along one of the streets of Mannheim in Germany. The vehicle was treated to a Kicherer-style tuning, which gave its front fascia a brutal appearance.

The most noticeable trait of the car is its nasty-looking front grille featuring around twelve vertical bars. While there have been mixed reactions on the way Kicherer customized the front grille, it surely made the vehicle unique and it provided the car a very refreshing look when compared to its standard version. The car was also fitted with the signature black 21-inch RS1… Continue Reading »
