2017 Mercedes-AMG SLC 43 Review: More modern, less muscle

If you're in the luxury game, the pressure to build high performance editions of almost every model in your line-up is a strong one. Most premium brands pursue volume as aggressively as possible, extending their reach into every conceivable niche to create a balance of both divine (Audi RS7) and strange (BMW X6 M) bedfellows. After replacing its longtime SLK nameplate with the new SLC roadster, Mercedes-Benz turns its hot rodding skills to the 2017 Mercedes-AMG SLC 43 and continues its tradition of dumping a big engine in a small car - with a few important twists.

Daimler drops details on Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6

Daimler has finally offered up a bunch more detail on that sexy and massive Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 car that will be seen in person for the first time at Pebble Beach this month. We already knew that the car was almost 6-meters in length and we have been wondering what sort of power the luxury concept would use.

The electric system makes 750hp and the car can reach 100km/h in less than four seconds with a top speed of 250 km/h.

First Mercedes-Benz re-resurrected the Maybach name for a super-luxe version of the S-Class, and now it's taking a shot at a monstrous coupe. Billed as "ultimate luxury" the shadow-masked two-door is still more mystery than showroom model, with the German automaker playing it very coy with the details, though we've already seen enough to get excited.

2016 Mercedes-Benz S550 Review – Silicon Valley on wheels

2016 Mercedes-Benz S550 Review – Silicon Valley on wheels

It's a blessing and a curse to be the benchmark by which all others are judged, but the Mercedes-Benz S-Class shoulders its obligations well. Launched first in 1972, and now in its sixth generation, the beefy sedan has always possessed a perhaps unusual duality.
