1 of 50 1989 Mercedes-Benz 560 SEC AMG 6.0 Widebody Gets Auctioned

The 1989 Mercedes-Benz 560 SEC AMG 6.0 Widebody two-door coupe is a rare gem for car collectors. Only 50 samples of the vehicle were ever made, and we doubt that all of them survived the test of time. One of them, which happens to be in almost pristine condition, will be auctioned by RM Sotherby’s. Powertrain The 31-year-old coupe was customized by AMG back when the company was merely an aftermarket tuner of Mercedes-Benz. It features a 6.0-liter fuel-injected V8 M117 engine with a modified crankshaft, four-piston brake calipers, and four Bilstein shock absorbers. The setup allows the power unit to peak at 385 hp.

Mercedes-Benz EQ Models Are Having Their Own AMG Versions

Mercedes-AMG is moving from offering mild-hybrids to full-electric vehicles. Markus Schaefer, the R&D Chief of Daimler, confirmed that the high-performance division of the three-pointed star marque will be making juiced-up Mercedes-Benz EQ models. According to CarAndDriver, Schaefer revealed in a discussion that there are already AMG styling packages for the EQC and the recently-unveiled EQA. Then in the future, the EQ lineup will be getting full-fledged AMG versions as well. However, the exec cleared out that not every EV in the electric sub-brand of Mercedes will be receiving the AMG treatment. The recently unveiled Mercedes-Benz EQA is currently available only in its EQA 250 trim with 188 hp. Its maker… Continue Reading »


BMW M5 Competition Vs Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S 4-Door

The Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S 4-Door became the fastest four-door production car to finish a lap in Nurburgring back in 2018. It was unseated by the 2021 Porsche Panamera in 2020 but it eventually reclaimed the crown in its 2021 model year series. The 2018 AMG GT 63 S 4-Door’s superiority was recently challenged by its contemporary from BMW, the M5 Competition. Well, it should have been the M8 Gran Coupe but that’s all they’ve got for now. Before going on with the show, here’s a quick backgrounder on both cars: 2018 BMW M5 Competition The Bimmer weighs 1,950 kgs, and it is equipped with a 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8.

2021 Mercedes-AMG GT R Pro Gets Tattooed by Carlex Design

The Mercedes-AMG GT R Pro used to be the king of the hill in the high-performance division of the three-pointed star marque before the arrival of the Mercedes-AMG GT Black Series. Due to it being eclipsed by the Black Series, it is now bound to the chopping block as a part of its brand’s streamlining efforts. As a final salute to the model, let’s take a look at the Tattoo Edition package for the auto from Carlex Design. The Mercedes-AMG GT R Pro Tattoo Edition is a bit unorthodox in and out, but for those who are already familiar with the works of Carlex Design, it’s just the tuner doing… Continue Reading »


1992 Mercedes-Benz 500 SL Given a Wild Widebody Upgrade

The 1992 Mercedes-Benz 500 SL (R129) Roadster may be the entry point of buyers into the SL range, but it was such a hot commodity back in its time for the rich and famous. The late Princess Diana even leased one but it was not without controversy because the media questioned whether a member of the British royal family should drive a foreign car. Recently, we saw a market listing for the car on ClassicDriver. Aside from the fact that it is rare to find a 1992 500 SL in good condition nowadays, the subject stands out more because of its unique build, thanks to its special body package from… Continue Reading »


2021 Mercedes-Benz CLA 250 Vs Kia K5 GT-Line in a Drag Race

There was a time when a Mercedes-Benz car was seen as an “old man’s car”, and a Kia car was a laughing stock. Fast-forward today, the two have managed to shed off those brandings from critics thanks to their very attractive and reliable cars with good engine power. The Mercedes-Benz CLA was made to attract younger customers into the three-pointed star brand in 2013 while the Kia Optima has spawned the Kia K5 GT-Line whose top-range GT model can be seen as a much cheaper alternative to the BMW M3. So what happens when the CLA 250 and the K5 GT-Line are pitted against each other? Sam CarLegion on YouTube… Continue Reading »
