Lookin' gangsta too
AMG is an absolute juggernaut these days. It's the performance arm of a preeminent car manufacturer, the force behind years of F1 dominance and an engine builder par excellence. And it's hard to say it doesn't deserve every bit
But it's totally fine
This is a thoroughly American Benz. And we love that. It's not an American Benz because it's a G-Wagen parked on Rodeo Drive. It's not because we've done the American thing and called it a Benz, either.
This W140 S-Class features Renntech's magic touch
Numbers without context are generally meaningless. After all, what does 615 mean by itself? Is 600 better, worse or completely unrelated? And what about 76, 12 or indeed 7.6? It's only when you add that last piece of the puzzle

Can you guess what he bought with his first big payday?

From the W112 to the EQS
What is there to say about the W112-era 300SE's interior beyond...whoa. Proper wood, leather and metal, a column-shifter (to which Merc would return some decades later), and odd yet beautiful instruments.The definitive Big Benz stood proud at
We can’t blame him

Not just top of the Merc range, but top of its entire class
It's impossible not to think of the previous six generations of Mercedes-Benz S-Class as you approach this seventh iteration. Think of them and pity such piffling technological world firsts as antilock brakes (1978, on the W116) or airbags (1981'
Oldies but goodies
