World's greatest driving roads: Highway 89 A, Arizona, USA

I've just discovered that I love desert. No, not double-cream-topped, Belgian-choc-filled, Heston Blumenthal-frozen Masterchef-style dessert, but the sun-scorched, dusty, cactus-smattered, don't-go-wandering-off-or-you'll-die environment of America's Wild West. On my first-ever visit, I've become smitten by Arizona, and all of the (ahem) good, the bad and the ugliness it crams inside 300,000 square kilometres...

Mercedes-AMG: Say goodbye to atmo engines, and you can forget about diesel

At this year's New York motor show, Australian media spent time with Tobias Moers, the head of Mercedes-AMG - and chief among the topics discussed was performance, specifically how best to achieve it. In recent times, petrol engines have become so efficient, so technologically adept and so clean-running, that there is hope we may one day return to the glory days of naturally-aspirated petrol engines, even if they do run an electric motor of some sort to help things along...

2017 Geneva motor show: Epic from-the-show-floor experience

Mercedes-AMG to adopt new grille treatment to further differentiate sporty models from standard ones

Mercedes-AMG will move to differentiate itself further from Mercedes-Benz through design, with the sporty sub-brand set to adopt a polarizing new vertical bar grille design to its go-fast models. With such a proliferation of Mercedes-AMG models, not to mention AMG line packages for non-performance models, it can be hard to pick a real AMG model from a hotted-up regular car, but that won’t be the case for much longer according to Mercedes-Benz chief design officer, Gorden Wagener...
