New stamping plant for Mercedes-Benz

The Daimler Board of Management has today announced a new stamping facility which will produce exterior panels for Mercedes-Benz trucks and the successor generations of Mercedes-Benz A and B-class passenger cars .   The total investment in the stamping facility will amount to around €70 million with construction expected to commence within the first quarter of this year...

2009 Mercedes-Benz CLK Coupe spied

Here we have our clearest look yet of an almost completely undisguised example of the new generation Mercedes-Benz CLK Coupe.   The new CLK Coupe and Cabriolet is larger and more focussed than its predecessor, closely resembling the new E-Class range rather than the C-Class from which it has been derived...

2009 Mercedes-Benz SLR Stirling Moss

Mercedes-Benz has revealed its most uncompromising edition of its flagship McLaren SLR Roadster, named after the British motor racing legend and current Mille Miglia record-holder Stirling Moss.   The new SLR Stirling Moss is a modern interpretation of the original SLR racing cars from the 1950s, offering a truly unique interpretation of speed by staying true to form without a roof or a windscreen...

Gold for Mercedes-Benz

While the rest of the world is going broke, one guy in the Middle East doesn't seem to be suffering from quite the same fate with more than enough cash left over to plate his new Mercedes-Benz in white gold.   Though hardly practical due to the obvious weight addition, you've got to admit, it looks the goods and we guess if you have this sort of cash, then why not!    ...

2010 Mercedes E-Class leaked and spied

The first official images of the new Mercedes-Benz E-Class have been leaked onto the web just as our spy photographers have caught yet another glimpse of the prototype model.

2009 Mercedes-Benz R-Class facelift spied

Mercedes-Benz is giving its slow-selling R-Class MPV another go, with a heavily disguised prototype snapped in the US.   Current speculation suggests the extent of its styling changes are intended to make it appear more like its current B-Class people mover sibling. Ambitiously classified as an SUV Tourer, the R-Class has always been a rather awkward addition to the Mercedes line-up - a car for the sake of competition...

2009 Mercedes-Benz S-Class facelift spied

Our spy photographers have captured the best pictures yet of the face lifted Mercedes S-Class, due to arrive in Europe by Spring 2009.   The most obvious changes have been the new front skirt with fog lights, a redesigned rear bumper and new side mirrors.   The head lights have also received a subtle makeover, now featuring day-time running lights using LED technology...

2009 Mercedes-Benz CLK Spy Photos

Here’s proof Mercedes is working hard on the next generation CLK. Bigger and yet a bit more elegant than the outgoing model, the new CLK (and CLK convertible likewise) will be based on the C-class saloon. It goes without saying, however, that refinement will be done to the chassis to meet expectations of the somewhat more ambitious coupé-drivers...

2010 Mercedes SLC Gullwing Spy Photos

In August we saw the first pictures of the “C197” testing in the States, now we have even more pictures of what will surely be Mercedes answer to the growing number of German supercars. The “Mercedes Gullwing” has often been referred to as the SLC, but we’re expecting the production version to have a new name and quite possibly sit under the AMG brand...

Mercedes-Benz enlists with the ADF

With Mercedes-Benz having just taken the Australia Post fleet by storm, ending a thirty year reign for the humble Transit, it would seem they're out to conquer all and sundry with news today the Australian Defence Force (ADF) has signed a contract with Mercedes-Benz Australia/Pacific (MBAuP) for the supply of 1,200 G-Class units...

Mercedes-Benz CLK Cabriolet spied

While at first this may appear to be the new CLK Coupe, a second glance reveals this latest prototype from Mercedes boasts a folding hard top roof.   While the camouflage for the most part disguises the roofline, a joint between the windshield and roof clearly indicates this is the next-generation CLK Cabriolet...
