Not many years ago, mentioning the Nurburgring would, ordinarily, produce associations of Porsches, M3s, even Nissan Skylines, redlining their engines at the Green Hell. Now, having a good lap time at the Ring is practically a prerequisite for a car with sporting pretensions, and fastest laps times are a hotly contested issue – remember Porsche and Nissan duking it out regarding the R-35’s times? But Mercedes is not a company to play that game. Instead, it lets its cars do the talking, as exemplified by the various Black Series models that have stormed the imaginations and favorite roads of motorheads everywhere. This attached video shows a Black Series CLK63 doing… Continue Reading »

The 2012 Pirelli World Challenge Championship is coming to a close, but MBBS-Evosport will be debuting its latest project. The tuned Mercedes-Benz AMG CLK63 Black Series will feature in the GT Class competition at the Sonoma Raceway in California—the only Mercedes-Benz to compete in the whole event. Originally, the vehicle was a tuned street car by Evosport Engineering, which specializes in brands like Mercedes-Benz, and later has been developed to race. It started out with the Evosport Racing team, competing at public roads before being converted to a full racing machine with the specifications fit to race the likes of the GT-R and Cadillac CTS-V. Craig Stanton was tapped to… Continue Reading »
In one of the greatest fuel station in the world, a video was shot. Well, first, I think it is one of the greatest because of its location, it is in Nurburgring. The video is actually a “soundtrack” of the Mercedes CLK63 AMG Black Series, as it kind of brags how its 8 cylinder engine produces power. Hit the play button and see (or hear) for yourself.
Uploaded by Jorrie2, this video is a fresh take on the Mercedes-Benz CLK63 AMG Black Series, which is not new anymore, yet still creates buzz. Because of the power and the beauty of the vehicle, it is not difficult to understand why lots of car enthusiasts still admire it. In this video, the CLK63 is seen in a gas station with the SLS AMG and the Porsche 911 GT2. It speeds away leaving rubber tracks behind and sounding like a roaring lion on the road. The other cars followed too.
In the finest tradition of hotrodding, a Mercedes enthusiast has converted his CLK55 into his version of a CLK Black Series edition. Not willing or able to replace his 2005 CLK55 with a Black Series, the owner hired a team of mechanics to upgrade his car’s engine, for an increase in output to 450 horsepower. An aftermarket exhaust advertises the fact that this CLK is no ordinary luxury convertible. This enthusiast then fitted his CLK55 with an original wide body kit and replaced the bumpers, side skirts and grille with Black Series items. Black Series 19-inch wheels complete the transformation from an ordinary CLK55 to Mercedes-AMG’s version of the ultimate… Continue Reading »
It’s been a while since we last wrote about the facelifted C-Class. Well, here’s the saloon variant making rounds on infamous Nurburgring. In case you’re wondering, this is the track that gave the new CLS is first ever recorded crash, as well as the SLS AMG GT3′s first fiasco on a track on its racing debut. You can see that this test car has been lightly disguised to reveal subtle visual enhancements up front, most notably taking cues from the brand-new E-Class range—the headlamps, the well-contoured bonnet and the redesigned bumper. Now, if you peek at the rear end, you’ll find even less enhancements, limited to the bumper and the… Continue Reading »
So yeah, the next C-Class will come in both coupe and convertible variants. In the gallery below, you’ll even get to peek at its interior. But how will the next C-Class Coupe fare against the two-door E-Class. Since the E-Class similarly is based on the current C-Class platform, it’ll be fun to see which of the two will be larger and performance-wise, which will be a lot more tempting to drive. A lot of questions are hanging on these two vehicle lineups, questions which will hopefully get some answers from the up-and-coming Paris Motor Show in France. Surely, you guys are wondering what the price tag will be and how… Continue Reading »
