New spy shots revealed that a new Mercedes-Benz S-Class is in the works in China. Apparently, the exact location of the sighting was at a Mercedes-Benz dealership in the city of Qingdao in the Shandong Province. The source, CarNewsChina, is pretty positive about the car being an S-Class because the light camouflage revealed the traditional features of the variant. According to the report, the new car will be launched at the Chengdu Auto Show in China on September this year. Then, the car will roll out in the Chinese car market probably in October, just a month after its launching.

What you see here is probably the 2014 Mercedes-Benz E-Class, photographed by Victor Gutierrez Poza from his room in a Madrid hotel. It’s still a bit clad in shroud at the rear, but most of the body is visible—including a view of the unibody headlights. It veers away from the four-headlight setup commonly found in recent E-Class vehicles, which is why many believe this could be the refreshed E-Class. Evident in the picture as well are the vehicle’s fresh bumper and grille, and the rims seem to have been redesigned, too. It’s still unclear whether the vehicle is an AMG variant or the top model in the Mercedes range thanks… Continue Reading »

It’s nice to see spy shots surfacing as these snaps heighten anticipation for the cars. Take these recent spy shots of the upcoming hot hatch, the Mercedes-Benz A25 AMG, seen as it was testing very minimally shrouded. The vehicle was running a few rounds of testing somewhere in Southern Germany, likely to check the overall performance of the car. It’s powered by a 2.0-liter engine, and it is said that Mercedes-Benz High Performace Engines helped in the development. According to the company, the A25 AMG will likely leapfrog the power numbers of the Audi RS3’s 2.0-liter engine that goes for 335 brake horsepower. It’s also expected to get a 7-speed… Continue Reading »
A cycling team in Spain has filmed the brand-new 2013 Mercedes-Benz A-Class while either making a promo spot or shooting some picture for print material. The video was taken on Jan 26 by bike team OGOTT, as they were cycling from El Golfo to Playa Blanca when they stumbled upon the brand new Mercedes-Benz A-Class. As you can see in the video, it’s a very clear shot of A-Class, revealing all the front and side details. We are very surprised that it looks almost identical to the prototype, even the beautiful and futuristic grill was kept. Concept A-Class
The Baby-CLS or BLS/CLC/CLA as some are calling it, was just a rumor back a few months ago when we first reported about it, but as we can see in these exclusive spy-shots, it seems that Mercedes-Benz is going ahead with it’s plan to create a smaller version of legendary CLS. It is rumored that the baby-CLS (some are even calling it the 4-door coupe version of the C-Class) will be built on the same architecture as the next-gen B-Class. Front-wheel drive will be available for the standard version, whereas the AMG version will get a all-wheel drive system. Not much is known about the drive system, but if rumors… Continue Reading »
Autocar has just outed some spy shots of the next-generation Mercedes-Benz S-Class as it was being tested. The upcoming vehicle, which has a codename of W222, isn’t due officially until 2013, and the pictures still show a heavily covered-up vehicle to hide the car’s exterior from the public eye. While not much gets past the extensive camouflage of the upcoming S-Class, there’s definitely some amazing curves lurking behind all that cladding. That’s because the new S-Class is supposedly going to take some design inspiration off the F700 concept showcased at the 2007 Detroit Auto Show. The car will be powered by a new range of V6 and V8 petrol engines… Continue Reading »
