Mercedes-AMG and Cigarette Racing have launched their latest collaboration at the Miami International Boat Show.

Cigarette Racing and AMG have collaborated on the newest version of the Huntress performance boat, which was officially unveiled this week at the Miami International Boat Show. A little more roomy than classic go-fast boats, the 42-foot Huntress is ten feet high, has an 11-foot, 9-inch beam and a cabin below decks providing luxury accommodation for two. Oh, yes – it also comes with a 500 gallon fuel tank and five Mercury Racing outboards that can push it up to 78 mph (125 km/h or 68 knots).  Read More

The A 45 AMG boasts the most powerful series production four-cylinder engine in the world

Mercedes has thrown the wraps off the A 45 AMG ahead of its global premiere at the Geneva Motor Show next month. The hot-hatch marks the first time Mercedes’ performance division has released a vehicle in the compact class in its 45-year history.

2014 Mercedes-Benz AMG SLS Black Series

Due for its public debut at the upcoming Los Angeles motor show, Mercedes-Benz AMG has finally revealed images and details of the SLS Black Series. Ever since the gull-winged wonder was first released in 2010, enthusiasts and schoolboys have been anticipating the inevitable ultimate (road-going) version. It'll come as no surprise that the beast in question is wider, harder, faster, and completely awesome.  Read More

The Mercedes-Benz CLS 63 AMG Shooting Brake that will be available in October

Mercedes chose the eve of the German Grand Prix for the official world premiere of its CLS 63 AMG Shooting Brake. Revealed on a catwalk on the “Night of the Stars” at the Hockenheim, the car boasts the same AMG 5.5-liter V8 biturbo engine outputting 386 kW (525 hp) and delivering 700 Nm of torque found in the sedan model. Mercedes will also offer an “Edition 1” model for a limited time, which ups the power output to 410 kW (557 hp) and the torque to 800 Nm.  Read More

2013 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT Roadster

There's some confusion as to whether the new Mercedes-Benz AMG SLS GT (to give it its full title) is a replacement or an addition to the SLS stable. The official line is that it is a faster and more focused additional model but it seems likely that the standard SLS will quietly disappear. It make less and less sense in the face of the monstrous SL 63 and 65s now available. The SLS GT, however, makes perfect sense - it fixes the niggle that every single reviewer has complained about since day one. Gearbox, gearbox, gearbox.  Read More

The 2012 Mercedes-Benz AMG G63

Mercedes-Benz has never been shy of the absurd (R-class anyone?) and the Affalterbach works – home of the AMG division – must be a regular giggle-fest. The company is quite happy to indulge the hooligan in its well-heeled clients without a hint of embarrassment. It’s not exactly thinking outside the box, more taking a box and sticking an absurdly massive engine in it. The box in question this time is the decades-old, ex-military transport Geländewagen or G-class. Delicious.  Read More

The 2013 Mercedes-Benz SL 65 AMG that will be available in September 2012

Mercedes’ high performance AMG division has been busy in recent months, with the launch of the SL 63 AMG and announcement that its SLS AMG E-Cell Gullwing has gotten a production nod. Now, with the weather warming up in the northern hemisphere, AMG has unveiled its new roadster, the Mercedes-Benz SL 65 AMG. Powered by a 6.0-liter V12 biturbo engine developing a max output of 463 kW (630 hp) and max torque of 1,000 Nm, the new SL 65 AMG boasts an electronically limited top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph), a 0-100 km/h (62 mph) time of four seconds, and 0-200 km/h (124 mph) time of 11.8 seconds.  Read More

Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG E-CELL

Can an electric version of one of the world's supercars be a supercar? Mercedes-AMG has answered this question with a resounding yes by announcing the SLS AMG E-Cell that was confirmed for production in Detroit in January will be available in 2013. Its electric powertrain gives the E-Cell a 0-60 mph (96.5 km/h) time of 4.0 seconds, compared to the SLS AMG's 0-60 mph time of 3.8 seconds. When it comes to top speed, both cars are electronically limited. The E-Cell can hit 155 mph (249.4 km/h), while the SLS AMG tops out at 197 mph (317 km/h). While not quite the equal of the gas-powered SLS AMG, the E-Cell is clearly in supercar territory!  Read More
