Humvee Maker Will Now Handle R-Class Production

Based on several news sources, Mercedes-Benz recently turned to AM General to handle the production of the R-Class. AM General is popular for making the High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicle (HMMWV), or the Hummer. To be honest, I thought the R-Class was already history, so I was quite surprised about the recent development centering on the range. My first reaction when I saw the headlines was, “Really, the R-Class is still around?” It should be noted that the R-Class wasn’t quite as popular as the other series of the three-pointed star brand. When it was launched in 2005, its sales figures were way below expectations. In its best year, only… Continue Reading »

Tortoise Vs Hare Mercedes Ad: And the Winner Is

Remember the ad of Mercedes-Benz that we mentioned earlier about the race between the tortoise vs hare? The one that the three-pointed star brand made for the Super Bowl? Well, we just got the results, and the winner was the tortoise. Just like the original story seen in Aesop’s Fables and even in Bugs Bunny cartoons, the tortoise overcame the odds. However, in the modern version of Mercedes, the creature in the half-shell got some unlikely help from a sports car. It seemed that the rule of the race never mentioned the allowed ways for the two competitors to cross the checkered flag. So capitalizing on that loophole, the tortoise grabbed himself a… Continue Reading »

Lotus Reveals Race Car Powered by Mercedes Engine

Lotus recently unveiled its new Formula One race car. The latest unit called the E23 Hybrid sported some aerodynamic upgrades compared to the team’s car last season. However, the most important improvement in the race car came in its power unit. This time, the team ditched its Renault engine over a Mercedes engine. Lotus Team technical director Nick Chester admitted that they really struggled in the 2014 season due to performance and reliability issues. So, with their new engine supplier, he hoped that their fortune will be reversed this season. The woes of teams other than the ones carrying Mercedes power units were not really a secret to everyone. It… Continue Reading »

Check Out This Jurassic World Version of the Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe

Just a few weeks ago, it was revealed that the Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe will appear in the much-anticipated Jurassic World film, which is the latest installment of the Jurassic Park franchise. It was reported that the compact SUV coupe will be configured to match the wild environment setting inhabited by dinosaurs. Recently, CarWow released some rendering of the Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe, which were inspired by the movie. The photos showed the GLE Coupe in what looked like a thick-armored body complete with a jungle camo wrap. Even the windshield and the windows were reinforced with metal strips to protect the vehicle’s occupants from possible dinosaur attacks. Also, the auto was fitted with thick steel bumpers,… Continue Reading »

Mercedes-AMG CEO Hints Plans for Hybrid Supercar

Mercedes-AMG may be planning something in its backyard. A report suggested that the performance division of the three-pointed star brand responsible for the Mercedes-AMG GT may be considering a hybrid supercar. If so, then we might be looking at the marque’s answer to the Porsche 918 and McLaren P1. According to Motor Trend, it was just less than a year ago when Tobias Moers denied point-blank if they were planning to make a hybrid powercar that would rival the Porsche 918. The answer was a straight “no” from the Mercedes-AMG CEO. However, as we have witnessed before, Mercedes is not a brand that would keep a word “no” or “never” in its dictionary,… Continue Reading »
