2018 Mercedes-AMG C43 review

The Mercedes-AMG C43 range is the better-known C63's grippier, less manic sibling. The updated versions have a more powerful twin-turbo V6, slick new cabin tech and more, to keep the Audi S4/S5 range on its toes.

Mercedes-Benz commissions new metal parts for 300SL Gullwing

Resto-modding is all the rage at the moment, with manufacturers digging out their classic blueprints and diving into the world of hand-beaten panels, all to serve the demands of a very wealthy few. We've seen new (old) Jaguars and Alfa Romeos recently, and now Mercedes-Benz is getting in on the act... well, sort of...

Mercedes-Benz CLK GTR remembered - Video

With V12s on their way out of the Mercedes-AMG range, it's worth celebrating some of the cool and wild vehicles to be created by the tuner-turned-manufacturer over its four decades of operation. The CLK GTR of the late 1990s was developed in racing guise in just 128 days for the 1997 FIA GT championship, entered in the GT1 class to take on the McLaren F1 GTR...

With stringent emissions requirements needing to be met by all manufacturers, as well as the fast-track to electrification, the days of AMG twin-turbo V8s seem numbered...

2018 Mercedes-AMG C63 revealed

Mercedes-AMG has unveiled its facelifted C63 range in New York, with a mildly overhauled exterior and a tech-heavy interior but, in shocking news, no more power. What's going on in Affalterbach? Power comes from the same 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 as before, making the same 350kW and 650Nm in 'base trim', or 375kW and 700Nm in range-topping C63 S guise...
