Look, I have already sung the praises of wagons. I have waxed about their practicality; shook my fist at the sky and howled about their aesthetic superiority. I have made it abundantly clear that I am on Team Wagon, and so the fact that the 2021 Mercedes-AMG E 63 S Wagon has an early advantage with me should come as little surprise.
One of the coolest cars that Mercedes offers is the Mercedes-AMG GT R Roadster. It's the open-top sibling to the coupe version of the car and is already very attractive and fast right out of the box. What's interesting about the Roadster is that it's an extremely limited-edition car with only 750 units produced globally. A company called Bussink has taken that car and hacked off the roof and most of the windshield to create something called the Bussink GT R Speedlegend.
Way back in 1952, Mercedes designed a filigree space frame bringing low weight and the highest possible torsional rigidity that resulted in the first SL. Originally, that filigree space frame was designed for racing and was eventually developed to provide the foundation for the production SL model in both coupe and roadster versions. Later this year, Mercedes-AMG is set to reveal an entirely new architecture for the SL.
German high-performance tuning specialist Brabus has unleashed its newest 800 model based on the facelifted 2021 Mercedes-AMG E63 S sedan. Brabus recently unveiled the 500, a seventh-gen Mercedes S-Class with a 500-horsepower inline-six engine. And now, it’s the E-Class’s turn to take the spotlight, and it’s carrying a mightier stick than its Brabus 500 stablemate.
Mercedes-AMG is bringing another of its ridiculously-potent SUVs to the US, with the 2022 AMG GLC 63 S SUV joining its coupe sibling as a family hauler with serious horsepower. Like its slope-roofed counterpart, the GLC 63 S SUV packs a V8 biturbo engine, which in this case can propel things from 0-60 mph in 3.6 seconds.
It's easy to get addicted to excess, especially when it comes to buying a new car. Bigger engines, bigger trucks, bigger power figures, and the inevitably bigger price tag to go along with it. Sliding sneakily in-between all that is the 2021 Mercedes-AMG A35 4MATIC, a comparative minnow in size, horsepower, and - in AMG terms, at least - price, but which lands even more of a punch because of it.
At this point, if you can't find just the right model among Mercedes-Benz's line-up, you're probably not trying hard enough. The German automaker has embraced the niche, and little epitomizes that as conclusively - and compellingly - as the 2021 Mercedes-AMG GT 43 4-Door Coupe, a fast and handsome car amid what's already a range packed full of fast and handsome cars.
AMG is readying a new breed of all-electric performance vehicles, eschewing gas engines in favor of sports BEVs based on upcoming Mercedes EQ models. The strategy will operate in tandem with AMG E-Performance, the gas-electric sports hybrids which the automaker will also begin releasing this year for its most power-hungry owners.
Mercedes-AMG is looking to electrification for the next big thing in performance, but it's not quite ready to give up on gas engines yet. The result is AMG E Performance, a new family of horsepower-heavy hybrids that combine gas and electric for all-wheel drive with some fascinating nuance.
One of the most anticipated hypercars that has been talked about in recent memory is the Mercedes-AMG One. Mercedes first began talking about the car back in 2017, promising a hypercar with F1 power. Everything about the car was slowed down due to the coronavirus pandemic. Finally, Mercedes-AMG has given up some images of the car, and the One is an incredible-looking machine.
