The B-Class has been a marketable model for Mercedes since it was launched in Europe, Asia, and other continents. It has sold over 120,000 units on its first year of production. The next generation will come out in 2012 and will now be available in the US. There are speculations that Mercedes is planning to widen its range by introducing new variants a new convertible coupe and a hatchback to compete head on with the 1 Series from BMW. There’s also a possibility to offer a new four door on a coupe platform. The hatchack is slated to come out, as it is now being developed and tested at the… Continue Reading »
Latest Mercedes-Benz News
Last week, we got the opportunity to see a computer illustration on what the 2010 E-Class Cabrio might look like. This week, courtesy of our beloved GlobalMotors guys, we get to see fresh spy shots of the upcoming E-Class Cabrio. It will be closely based on the coupe version, and will even inherit the E-Class sedan engines. The only thing different is that it will have a soft top, which of course is acceptable, but I am more in favor of having a hard top. Either way, looking forward to more spy shots and info of course.

Mercedes-Benz officially announced the new E-Class yesterday, and today, we are getting fresh spy shots of the new E-Class Coupe. It seems that Mercedes is either not really trying to hide the E-Class Coupe or the spy ninjas are really good. I am actually more inclined to believe that Mercedes is preparing to officially announce the coupe the coupe in about 2 months at the Geneva Auto Show, so they aren’t concerned about spy shots anymore. As always, a big thanks goes out to GlobalMotors.net and their spy photographers.
Ever since we published the first official shots of the next-gen E-Class, critics were calling it everything from fake to computer generated images, well, here is some further proof, with the help of our new friends at GlobalMotors.net. They have published a series of spy shots of the new E-Class, which is nearly undisguised this time around. As you’ll see in the pictures below, the newest spy shots and the pictures we published as the first official E-Class pictures (by AutoBild), look 99% identical. There are of course some differences, but that is too be expected, as the car is still being tested and refined. See for yourself and tell… Continue Reading »
Ninja photographers were able to infiltrate the secret Mercedes-Benz testing grounds and take some pretty detailed pictures of the SLC interior. Well we’re not really sure that they actually infiltrated anything, since the pictures seem like magazine scans, but we’re going think that way anyways. These are definitely some of the first interior pictures we have seen of the SLC, which is supposed to replace the SLR in the coming years. Just like any Mercedes-Benz offspring, the SLC shares a few visible components with his brothers; mostly notable is the steering wheel, which can be found in the current SL 63 AMG. The pictures are so grainy, that the interior… Continue Reading »
KGP has managed to get another glimpse of the future McLaren SLR Speedster. Like we reported earlier this month, the Speedster will be lighter by 200kg compared to the current SLR; it will still pack the same engine power, which in theory should produce better performance numbers. Its top speed is rumored at around 218mph and it can go from 0-300km/h (180mph) in 26 seconds; only 75 are going to be produced and will cost more than a $1 million. Check out the gallery
There have been so many rumors and false statements about the B-Class making it to the states, that most people have probably lost interest and faith in the car ever making it stateside. Could these latest “spy shots” indicate a new push my Mercedes to possibly bring the Compact Sports Tourer to the States? While the blurry photo seem like authentic spy shots, they are actually just my cell phone pictures of a Canadian B-Class parked near Seattle, WA. I was very excited once I spotted the car, but once I saw the license plates, almost all the excitement disappeared. Sorry if you actually thought these were real spy shots,… Continue Reading »
