1st Generation CLS Shows Some Fangs

The second generation of the Mercedes-Benz CLS was introduced at this year’s Paris Motor Show after which orders for the luxury 4-door were entertained. The first-generation CLS will not be easily forgotten, however, as this 4-door coupe was one of the vehicles responsible for the increased popularity of this segment. Renowned German tuning house Carlsson, a tuner specializing in Mercedes-Benz vehicles, developed a limited edition model based on the Mercedes CL 65 AMG and renamed it as the Carlsson CK65. From that lofty base, Platinum Motorsport, an American aftermarket company, upgraded this already remarkable Carlsson CK65, performing a few more modifications to put a stamp of their own. Without going… Continue Reading »

It’s only been two weeks, and already Mercedes-Benz has surprised fans with two brand new CLS variants, namely the CLS63 AMG plus the CLS Shooting Brake Concept.

A-Class, B-Class Might Get AMG Treatment in a Few Years

We are now quite familiar with the CLS 63 AMG, and we know that the C-Class has its own C 63 AMG trim. But did you ever think that the high-performance division of Mercedes-Benz would also make the move to the lower model classes? Well, AMG’s top man Ola Kaellenius thinks so—just not anytime soon. As he spoke at the LA Auto Show, he said that AMG might be able to touch the A-Class and B-Class models sometime within the next 3 or 4 years. There’s not much momentum going for the idea at the present, but sources say that the AMG division is already working on a smaller high-performance… Continue Reading »
