Mercedes AMG Petronas front row to start Spanish Grand Prix

In what is starting to be a repetitive result, the Mercedes AMG Petronas cars once again took the top two spots in a qualifying session. Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg will take the front row when the 2014 Spanish Grand Prix starts in several hours, and it should be yet another exciting battle for the two frontrunners so far this season. This is Hamilton’s fourth pole (out of five races) this season, and we’ll see if he can make it his fourth victory as well once the race proper rolls around. Rosberg actually was the fastest guy at the Circuit de Catalunya for the first two rounds of qualifying, but Hamilton… Continue Reading »

Renamed: The Mercedes AMG Petronas F1 W05 Hybrid

From here on out, the Mercedes AMG Petronas race car for the 2014 Formula One season will be known as the F1 W05 Hybrid, in honor of the technology that’s present in the new Power Unit and as a testament to the commitment Mercedes-Benz has to this automotive technology. The car will now carry the familiar ‘Hybrid’ branding present in the hybrid passenger cars from the German automaker. This branding will be displayed prominently right on the engine cover. We’ll be seeing this on the Mercedes AMG Petronas cars this weekend at the 2014 Spanish Grand Prix. “What we are seeing in Formula One today is the next generation of innovations that… Continue Reading »

Your selfie will never be as cool as Nico Rosberg’s

The ‘selfie’ has become as ubiquitous on the internet as cat pictures and hilarious memes. A good majority of your social media friends probably have at least one selfie. You might be fond of taking selfies yourself. We bet, however, that you likely won’t be able to do it while driving a 1954 Mercedes W196 [and you really shouldn't, no matter what vehicle you're driving/riding. It's dangerous!] That’s exactly what Mercedes AMG Petronas F1 driver Nico Rosberg did on Juan Manuel Fangio’s famed car. From the first rumbles of the engine to the end of his run, it is indeed a unique take on the selfie. Kids, don’t do this… Continue Reading »

Mercedes-Benz S-Class Cabriolet Spy Shots

  Out of the recent wave of Mercedes-Benz spy shots we’ve seen, perhaps none would tickle many an enthusiast’s fancy more than this latest one: a fresh, very much camouflaged S-Class Cabriolet spotted testing in the wild. The spy shots hail from the land of the automaker itself, straight out of Germany, and by the looks of it, it’s pretty much a four-seater design. Apart from the car being heavily clad, the shot is also obscured by unflattering lighting, so it’s hard to discern more details at this point. There’s also a more daytime shot featuring a front view of the car. Still, the design is looking pretty sleek and… Continue Reading »

Is Daimler spinning off its Mercedes-Benz dealerships?

In a bid to improve its profitability, Daimler could sell some of its Mercedes-Benz dealerships in Germany and keeping the rest of the dealerships it owns in a separate entity. The Daimler management board reportedly isn’t satisfied with the ‘maximum margin of 2 percent’, as stated by a representative of the IG Metall labor group, which plans to hold a rally on the 28th of April due to the breaking down of negotiations regarding the preservation of jobs for those on the retail side of the Mercedes-Benz dealerships. The rally will be held at the Stuttgart headquarters of Daimler AG. Of course, it’s only natural to expect this new approach… Continue Reading »

Daimler-BYD’s DENZA EV officially unveiled at Auto China 2014

The highly anticipated product of the Daimler-BYD joint venture finally got its world premiere. At the Auto China 2014 event, BYD Daimler New Technology showcased the production model of its pet project, an electric vehicle developed specifically for the Chinese market. BDNT expects the first unit of the DENZA automobile to be available by September 2014. The car is priced at RMB369,000, or around $59,250. Of course, BDNT aims to make the deal more enticing for those on the fence by throwing in considerable subsidies that reach a total of nearly RMB120,000, which is going to be shaved off the price of the vehicle straight away. BDNT, established in 2010,… Continue Reading »
