Mercedes 2014 E-Class revealed

Mercedes-Benz has outed the new 2014 E-Class, the latest iteration of its mid-range luxury car, and previewing features set to debut on the upcoming S-Class flagship. The new car - available as a sedan and as a wagon - has a more distinctively "surfaced" front end, with new headlamps (full-LED as an option) and a more distinctive grille, while there are lashings of computer tech under the hood to keep you on the road and away from crushing pedestrians as you waft in your leather-lined cocoon.

New Popemobile keeps Pontiff on show

The new @Pontifex account isn't the only toy Pope Benedict XVI has to play with this month: there's also a new Popemobile, courtesy of his friends at Mercedes.

Daimler and Renault-Nissan duo on eco-gas engine and more

Car manufacturers aren't betting the farm on all-electric and hybrid cars; gas engines are still going to be around for a while, and Renault-Nissan and Mercedes-owner Daimler plan to squeeze the very best out of them. A freshly inked collaboration between the firms will see them double up on a new, turbocharged powerplant that - despite using gas not hydrogen fuel-cells or batteries - will deliver "a significant improvement in fuel economy as well as low emissions."

Guinness World Record set for a golf ball caught in a moving car

At right around 120 mph it was time for former Formula 1 driver David Coulthard to stick his hand out of his $200,000 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Roadster supercar to make the catch. In his hand (nearly) plopped a standard sized golf ball hit by British pro golfer Jake Shepherd from 275 meters away. As it turns out, catching the ball in your hand isn't one of the requirements for the Guinness World Record to be won - and good thing, too, as they actually ended up catching the ball here in the middle of the car's front two seats.

2013 Mercedes-Benz GL 63 AMG gets 550 HP

I'll admit that generally I find SUVs to be very boring. These big people movers tend to be underpowered leading to slovenly performance. That doesn't appear to be the case with the new Mercedes-Benz GL 63 AMG SUV that has officially debuted as a 2013 model. This full-size SUV gets a twin turbo 5.5L V8 engine.
