Germany’s Prior Design has just announced the new tweaks they made on the Mercedes SL R230.

Mercedes GP Petronas finishes 4th and 5th in Turkish Grand Prix

Despite starting out on the 5th and 6th grids, Mercedes GP Petronas finished a 4th-5th victory in the recently concluded Turkish Grand Prix at Istanbul Park today. It was a smooth, albeit quiet, race as both Michael Schumacher and Nico Rosberg were able to pull into their planned pit stops and still hold their positions ahead of their challengers. As always, the weather played out pretty fairly for the team, as rain threatened to fall mid-race but only managed to score a few drops on the track. As if putting a curse on the Red Bull F1 Racing Team, those few drops managed to cause a collision between Sebastian Vettel… Continue Reading »

Here’s more details on the much-awaited CLS. We’re all aware that Mercedes-Benz is phasing out its 5.5-liter V8 with replacements being built in Bad Canstatt. Well, guess what?

The race for efficiency has every auto maker caught by the neck, and Mercedes-Benz is no exception. In its bid to keep up with the eco revolution, Daimler’s breadwinner has just announced plans for bringing into the US the European S350.

It’ll be the only diesel S-Class to be sold in the US, so hopefully it’ll gain some unique appeal amidst its gasoline-powered sisters. Wearing a BlueTec badge, the US version of the S350 will feature AdBlue urea injection technology to… Continue Reading »
