2023 Mercedes-AMG C63 Variants Spied Making Their Rounds in Nurburgring

The three-pointed star marque has been teasing us with spy shots and videos of the next-generation Mercedes-AMG C63 variants for nearly a year now. In recent months, we have seen the upcoming model of the high-performance C-Class gradually shedding its zebra camouflage, and now, it’s making its rounds again in Nurburging with a more exposed exterior. Since we are talking about the next-gen AMG C63 here, the car is expected to have a major overhaul in its exterior, interior, and powertrain. The earliest spy photo of the auto shows just that because its body is mostly hidden in camo. The video here shows two versions of the car: the wagon… Continue Reading »

Opus Mercedes-AMG GT R Can Conquer the ‘Ring 10 Seconds Quicker than the Regular Version

First off, there is nothing regular about the Mercedes-AMG GT R because it is just topnotch, that why it’s one of the most coveted cars of auto enthusiasts. However, just to differentiate the tuned version from the fresh-from-the-factory unit, we have taken the liberty to refer to the latter as such for emphasis. With that out of the way, here is another gem from the aftermarket tuner with headquarters near the famous Nurburgring track. Opus, formerly known as Renntech Europe, teased a 1,111 hp Mercedes-AMG GT Black Series last year. To date, we have no updates from the company’s official website about its completion after its promised June 2021 launch…. Continue Reading »

Mercedes-AMG GT Black Series Attempts to Break Its Own Record in the ‘Ring

In November 2020, the Mercedes-AMG GT Black Series officially became the fastest production car on the Nurburgring Nordschleife with a time of 6:48.047 for the whole course, and 6:43.616 on its old 12.8-mile stretch. Recently, another attempt was made by the same car but with a different driver to break the record. Before the latest record attempt of the current Black Series, it was eclipsed by the Porsche 911 GT2 RS last month with a new record of 6:43.300 for a street-legal car on the 12.9-mile layout of the ‘Ring, which was quicker than the sports car’s best time. However, the Porsche was actually modified by Manthey Racing, so the… Continue Reading »

Mercedes-AMG C63 Wagon Spied Making Its Rounds In Germany

After the launch of the 2022 C-Class sedan and wagon, Mercedes-Benz immediately confirmed that the range will be ditching the V8 engines in favor of a high-performance 2.0-liter turbo four-pot. Despite the downgrade, new spy shots confirm that a Mercedes-AMG C63 is still in the works. The spy photos of Motor1 feature what looks like a wagon variant of the C-Class cruising down the road near Nurburgring. It may be covered in full zebra camouflage but the profile of the car is all too similar with the standard C-Class Benz shown earlier this year. The prototype noticeably carries a Panamericana front grille with vertical slats, which is the signature of… Continue Reading »

The Mercedes-AMG GT 73e May Be Looking To Set A New Nurburgring Record

Currently, the record for the quickest “executive class” car to make a lap in Nurburgring is held by the 2021 Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S 4-Door Coupe while the overall record for the fastest road-legal car to lap the endurance track is topped by the 2021 Mercedes-AMG GT Black Series. Considering the success of the German automaker in conquering the circuit, it may be looking to set another mark again with the upcoming Mercedes-AMG GT 73e. As hinted by company insiders and various automotive news sources, the 2022 AMG GT 73e is being developed with a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine partnered with a hybrid performance system. The combination allows an overall… Continue Reading »

2021 Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S 4-Door Reclaims Nurburgring Crown

In 2018, the Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S 4-Door held the record as the fastest four-door production car to make a lap in Nurburgring. After it was overtaken by the 2021 Porsche Panamera this 2020, the high-performance car from the three-pointed star brand rebounded right away to reclaim its crown with its 2021 model year model. According to Mercedes, the 2021 AMG GT 63 S 4-Door covered the 12.8-mile-long North Loop of the circuit in only 7:23.009 minutes (excluding the straight-line measurement for track section T13). Meanwhile, the car only took 7:27.800 minutes for the 12.944-mile-long full track (with straight-line measurement for track section T13) of the circuit. The feat has… Continue Reading »

Mercedes-Benz EQB EV Takes a Spin at Nurburgring

Last year, a prototype resembling the Mercedes-Benz GLB sport utility vehicle was spied while undergoing testing, but a sticker found on its windshield read “Electric”. That led us to believe that we might be looking at the Mercedes-Benz EQB electric vehicle. Recently, a new version of the prototype was spotted at Nurburgring. The auto was seen with lesser camouflage, which gives us a good view on most of its exterior. At a glance, the vehicle looks like the regular GLB but a closer examination reveals that it is missing its exhaust pipes. The front grille of the SUV is hidden too. These things lead us to suspect that we might… Continue Reading »
