The Mercedes V12 Engine Lives On In The Pagani C10

Just when we thought that the V12 engine of Mercedes-Benz is about to become a relic of the past, Pagani confirmed that will continue using the power unit in its new hypercar. Spy shots here show the C10, which is the spiritual successor of the Huayra. The C10 in the photos from Motor1 is covered in a heavy camouflage with only the air vents in the bumpers and doors visible. They also give us a slight peek through the cockpit via the windshield but it’s still hard to make out its interior design at this stage. The profile of the prototype here seems too conservative for a Pagani hypercar, let… Continue Reading »


The V12 Makes Its Comeback in the 2022 Mercedes-Maybach S680

Two years ago, it circulated that the V12 will no longer be offered by Mercedes-Benz and Mercedes-AMG models. However, Daimer CEO Ola Kallenius was quick to dismiss the claims saying that the power unit will still be offered by the 2021 S-Class. It appears that the company’s supremo has kept his word on the matter as they just unveiled the new Mercedes-Maybach S680 this month. The launch of the 2022 Maybach S680 came without much fanfare. It doesn’t even have a press release on Daimler’s official media. Compared to the V8 trim of the auto unveiled in 2020, the new model only comes with subtle changes.

It was only reserved for the flagship, special series, iconic G-Class, and ultra-luxurious Maybach units of the German automaker.

However, thanks to Brabus, 10 people had the privilege of owning a W212 E-Class with a V12 transplant. Brabus calls its masterpiece the “E V12”, and it even surpasses the output of a standard AMG V12 auto. The German tuner swapped the original V8 power unit of the car with a 6.3-liter V12 engine. The result is a… Continue Reading »

SL65 AMG V12 Biturbo Official Video

In anticipation of its launch at the New York Auto Show next month, Mercedes has released a few official videos of the upcoming SL65 AMG Biturbo V12. Quite a mouthful to pronounce, but then, when you see the engine in this thing, you’re gonna be quite speechless. Twelve cylinders and twin turbochargers combine to pump out 630 horsepower, which should be adequate even for the more jaded automobile enthusiasts. Combined with a throaty growl emanating from those quad exhaust pipes, the engine’s pedigree won’t need further explanation. Adding to the anticipation of the driving experience is the fact that this is a Mercedes roadster. Owners will surely be looking for… Continue Reading »
