Brabus 850 6.0 Biturbo "iBusiness": A Rolling Office That Will Roll at 217 MPH

I find it poetic that I should be writing about the behemouth known as the Mercedes-Benz S-Class-based Brabus 850 6.0 Biturbo “iBusiness” today.  And, I’ll tell you why.  As I was driving down I-95 today up near Palm Beach, I passed what may be the most ridiculous car a tuning company as every put forth, a 120 horse Brabus Ultimate 120 Smart Car.  While 120 horse out of a Smart ForTwo is impressive, I am much more...

Mercedes-Benz Concept S-Class Coupe: Half the Doors, Twice the Swagger [Video]

Back in July, I introduced you to the 2014 Mercedes-Benz S-Class.  It’s good.  Very, very good.  But, it seems as though Mercedes and one-upped itself with the new Mercedes-Benz Concept S-Class Coupe, a two-door version of the mega-Merc. Take away a few of the concept-y touches (tiny wing mirrors, bits of the super-organic white interior) from the Concept S-Class Coupe and you probably have a good idea of what the replacement...

Mercedes-Benz CLA45 AMG Racer and CLA250 Sport: CLA-Class Gets Mean

The AMG models of Mercedes Benz have always been tire-shredding torque monsters.  Well-built, expensive and luxurious, but torque monsters nonetheless.  And, now there’s a new one… the CLA45 AMG.  Like the upcoming GLA-Class, the CLA45 AMG (and the CLA-Class in general, obviously) is based off of the (not to be sold in the States) A-Class platform, making it the smallest AMG one can get Stateside. And, based on these...

2015 Mercedes Benz GLA: Like an Aged Ribeye, Not Really Necessary but Quite Nice to Have

Does Mercedes Benz need another compact SUV crossover type thing when they have the GLK?  No.  They definitely don’t.  But some of the best things in life aren’t needed.  Do I need a 28-day dry-aged ribeye for dinner?  No.  Do I really, really, really want one?  Yes.  Same deal with the 2015 Mercedes Benz GLA-Class.  It’s not absolutely necessary, but it does make things a little bit better… a little bit more...

2014 Mercedes-Benz E-Class L: China Gets a Stretched E-Class.

Long-wheelbase sedans are all the rage in China.  A while back, to capitalize on the trend, Audi introduced the A6 L, BMW did the same with a stretched 5 Series.  Now, Mercedes-Benz is hoping to take a chunk of the Chinese stretched, mid-level, luxury sedan market with the 2014 E-Class L unveiled in Shanghai at Auto China 2013. The E-Class L is five-and-a-half inches longer than the standard 2014 E-Class, all in the rear seats.  This...

2014 Jaguar F-Type

Jaguar’s Teaser Photo of the Brand’s F-Type 2014 is going to be a good year for cars.  The C7 Corvette, the Audi R5 and the new Land Rover Defender are all expected to hit showrooms as 2014s.  But, the car that is possibly the most anticipated (other than maybe the Corvette) is the forthcoming Jaguar F-Type.  Fans of the brand and fans of cars in general have soft spot in their hearts for the famed Jaguar E-Type of yore. ...
