2017 Mercedes-AMG GT R track review

The most hardcore road-going GT in the AMG range, the R is a snarling, bellowing beast. Test driving it on-track is a proper test of both machine and driver.

Road Trip: Eifel mountains in the Mercedes 300 CE 6.0 AMG 'Hammer'

The sharp right-hander, just before the town of Hirten in Germany’s Eifel mountains, approaches faster than you think. It’s a tricky corner, almost 160-degrees in radius, switching back on itself before opening out into a long, straight stretch of road flanked by the forests and fields Germany does so well...


Mercedes-AMG Festival of Snow

Mercedes-AMG Festival of Snow

What if I told you Mercedes-Benz is paying, for you, to go learn how to drive and drift on snow? You'd immediately rush to sign up, right? Thought so. Well, alright, the brand isn't exactly picking up the bill, but the Mercedes-AMG snow experience – held in Queenstown, New Zealand, arguably the most beautiful location on Earth – is at least heavily subsidised...

2018 Mercedes-Benz S-Class: 48-volt system is the future, but diesel's not dead yet
