2012 Mercedes-Benz SL to get huge doses of carbon fiber

Very few car marquees have as much resources to build several lines of vehicles for different target markets as Mercedes-Benz does. And that plays a huge part in how the brand remains successful in the premium car segment. To keep the pace going, Mercedes-Benz has just announced its plans for one of its vehicle lines, the SL. From 2012 onwards, the Mercedes-Benz SL will be wearing carbon fiber reinforced plastics instead of the usual sheet metal. If you’re a fan of the SL, you’ll know that it traces back to one of the most iconic Mercedes-Benz cars in history – the 300SL Gullwing. ‘SL’ stands for ‘Sports Light’. The 300SL… Continue Reading »

Ever wondered what an electric supercar sounds like? It sure as hell won’t be as loud as the V8-powered variant will, but it won’t be as meek as a mouse either. Considering it’s going to be as deathly fast as its internal combustion brethren, there’ll be a lot more purring and whirring to be expected.

Now, the company is set to stir up an even bigger ruckus with news of a production-version in the works. This comes straight from AMG Managing Director Volker Mornhinweg himself, who… Continue Reading »


Mercedes-Benz C-Class crashes through parking garage wall

As you’ll see in the pictures, a Mercedes-Benz C-Class slammed through an outside wall of a 6th floor Bank of America garage in downtown Tulsa, OK. Fire crew were on the scene within minutes, but luckily the car was in no danger of falling out of the garage, nor were there any injuries reported. The C-Class driver told police he somehow got his foot stuck under the gas pedal. He says that caused the car to zoom across the parking garage in reverse and slam into the outer wall. This of course makes no sense what so ever, the only way this would be possible is if stepping on the… Continue Reading »

A fatality recently occurred on the Autobahn, a long stretch of highway in Germany where speed limits are almost non-existent.

Ross Brawn: Nico will win soon

One perk of keeping off the limelight is having ample time away from the press whilst you lay your master plan for success. And that is exactly what Mercedes-Benz GP Formula One driver Nico Rosberg is enjoying right now. Nico now stands 10 points from drivers championship leader Jenson Button, owing much to his 3rd place podium finish in China. This puts him in a favored spot in the hearts of Mercedes-Benz and Formula One fans, and creates a more anxious atmosphere around his team.
