SLS AMG Struts Its Stuff At The Nurburgring

Despite all the exposure you see of the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG on the Internet, actual sightings of this car in real life are not that common. So when we see one in the flesh, we make the most of the experience. In the video clip that follows, we see an SLS AMG initially parked at the world-famous Nurburgring, a track where immature drivers need not apply. While all vehicles are welcome at the Nurburgring (you even see the occasional bus!), the most common cars you see are Porsches and other cars of similar performance. Thus, it’s a pleasure to see this SLS AMG being driven hard, as high performance cars… Continue Reading »

Spyshots of the SLS AMG Black Series

Flared fenders front and rear with upgraded brakes and huge wheels. Carbon fiber body work that makes it lighter. An upgrade on power of up to 650bhp. What is this? The SLS AMG Black Series, a lighter and faster gullwing vehicle that will retain its 6.2 liter V8 was spotted in Nurburgring. Enjoy the spyshots, but if you can afford its reported price tag of $500,000, then you probably start drooling and hoping that this would be released soon. Photo Source: Autoevolution.com

CLS crashes during testing

Despite the majestic 2012 Mercedes-Benz being released to the public only recently at its world debut at the 2010 Paris Auto Show, there’s already news of it being involved in a crash, courtesy of MotorAuthority.com. The uneventful crash takes place in the Green Hell, a.k.a. Nurburgring, the infamous race track in Germany where so many crashes have occurred, whether during racing, or merely testing. In fact, it’s the favored spot of car engineers especially during final testing phases. If you look at the photos, it seems that there is minimum damage. Fortunately, this one’s a test mule, so the engineers probably don’t mind as long as they get the data… Continue Reading »

Spy Photo: 2012 Mercedes-Benz C-Class At The Ring

Mercedes has released statement that the latest C-Class Coupe is geared to join its vehicle range when the C-Class is presented for its mid-cycle update in 2011. The latest photo at the Nurburgring in Germany shows that its testing phase is in its last stages.

One of the most substantial change is the up-kicked line at the base of the C-pillar, a slight difference in contrast to the sharp corners of Mercedes’ other new coupes…. Continue Reading »

You can’t help but blame the driver, especially once you’re caught in fascination by the GT3’s unique beauty and finesse. Frikadella’s onboard camera caught the action while rolling on their Porsche racecar behind the GT3. The Gullwing was being driven by five-time DTM champion-now AMG brand ambassador Bernd Schneider when it crashed into Christian Hohenadel’s Corvette on the very first… Continue Reading »
