2014 S-Class Interior and Exterior Spy Shots

Bit by bit, we’re seeing the next-generation Mercedes-Benz S-Class in its entirety. This latest crop of spy shot photos show not just a very minimally shrouded vehicle, but also some snaps of the fine interior. We’ve already covered some of the exterior details in previous posts, but what’s interesting here is the interior furnishings. You’ll notice the redesigned steering wheel on this baby, along with some nifty details that are surely looking good. You’ve got the finish on the dash, complete with bezeled components. There are also fairly large LCD displays on the console. The styling is certainly a fusion of classic and modern Mercedes-Benz design, and should appeal to… Continue Reading »

Mercedes Gearing Up for 2012 Hungarian Grand Prix

After a decent but ultimately lacklustre showing in its home race at Hockenheim, the Mercedes AMG Petronas F1 team is now ready to move on and is preparing for the 2012 Hungarian Grand Prix this weekend. Hungary marks the start of the second half of the 2012 F1 season, and it is also the last race before a month-long hiatus (the Belgian Grand Prix isn’t until September 2). Hungary is a “challenging track,” as described by Nico Rosberg, featuring 10 of the 14 total corners that have to be taken at 155 kph or less. In addition, 13 percent of each lap is spent just for braking. There are 11… Continue Reading »

Model G Owner Turns 18-Month Trip Into 23-Year Journey

Not a Toyota Land Cruiser or a Land Rover nor any other SUV. Instead, former Lufthansa and Hapag-Lloyd executive Gunther Holfort chose a Mercedes-Benz Model G to bring him and his wife Christine to Africa from their home in Germany. Initially, the trip was to take 18 months, but the couple found the trip so enjoyable that they continued their trip – for the next 23 years! Bought new in 1988, the 300GD model that Gunther and his wife traversed the world with has accumulated more than 800,00 kilometers. During the times where the vehicle had no road to travel on to get to where the owners wanted it to,… Continue Reading »

Mercedes-Benz to Expand A-Class Production; Inks Deal with Valmet Automotive

Because of the positive resonance and good measure of demand for the new A-Class, Mercedes-Benz has decided to up the production of the small family car. For this purpose, it has inked an agreement with Valmet Automotive, a supplier from Finland that’s set to produce over 100,000 A-Class vehicles for the German automaker from 2013 to 2016. The move was spurred on by the current demand for the new A-Class. Months before the vehicle range is set to launch sometime in September, Mercedes-Benz has already received some 40,000 preorders. “Our new compacts are so popular with our customers that the Rastatt and Kecskemét plants are completely utilized,” said Daimler Board… Continue Reading »

Schumacher Finishes 7th as Alonso Wins German Grand Prix

After 67 laps of the 2012 German Grand Prix, it was Ferrari’s Fernando Alonso who took the victory from pole position. Mercedes AMG Petronas had a good performance in its home race at Hockenheim, with Michael Schumacher starting at P3 and ending up at 7th place, while teammate Nico Rosberg finished 10th.

Force India’s Nico Hulkenberg finished 9th. It was a bit of a letdown because Schumacher was primed… Continue Reading »
