Listen to the Sound of the Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG

The spy video above shows the Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG making its usual rounds at the Nurburgring track. Sure, the car displayed power almost the same, or even probably more than the Mercedes-AMG GT, based on several sources. However, the noise expected from the 4.0-liter biturbo V8 engine seemed to be lacking. One of AMG’s signature is the extra exhaust noise it provides to any Mercedes-Benz its tuners get their hands on. That is something that every buyer and fan of the performance division of Daimler expect. AMG seemed to blow that character off in the upcoming C63 though. Critics and even the author of this article find the new Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG too quiet for something with a V8… Continue Reading »

Will the Mercedes SLA Sports Car Ever Reach Production

The Mercedes Vision SLA was a concept car that was showcased at the 2000 Detroit International Auto Show. The two-seater convertible was based on the platform of the A-Class segment during that period. Overall, it was only 148.4 inches long. Then, the armor of the car was based on the combination of aluminum and plastic to minimize its weight. The Mercedes SLA was heavily hyped back then, however, it never reached the production stage because the execs of the brand decided that it was too complex to make at that time. Despite that, some of the features of the car were adopted into latter models like the 2004 Mercedes SLK… Continue Reading »

Still A Long Wait For Those Expecting An S-Class 4-Door Convertible

While the Ocean Drive concept from 2007 gave glimpses of what it would be like to drive around in a four-door S-Class convertible, it seems that such a car will remain exactly that, a concept.  We now know that the upcoming S-Class will have a convertible in its lineup, although it will be a 2-door version. However, a 4-door convertible is not in the works for now because as anyone beholden to cars knows, concept to showroom is a far step, involving engineering, market studies, safety tests, etcetera, etcetera. In the case of a four-door convertible for the soon-to-be-released S-Class, it seems that it will be the engineering challenge that… Continue Reading »

C63 AMG Convertible Rendered By Enthusiast

Inspired by the C63 AMG that was shown at the 2011 Frankfurt Auto Show, this rendering by a Mercedes enthusiast shows what a possible C63 convertible would look like with its top down.  User Tuvra at the Pistonheads forum is apparently artistic and proficient at Photoshop as the image above shows. If some of the elements of the design look familiar, it’s because the artist took inspiration from the rare Mercedes-Benz CLK DTM. Which is where the rear spoiler now apparently comes from. But being a C63, it would certainly have the 6.3-liter V8 developed by AMG with an output of  almost 520 horsepower. That would certainly be more than… Continue Reading »
