Rare snails put a stop to Mercedes-Benz imports, 900 cars turned around at the Australian border

EXCLUSIVE: A rare snail never before detected in Australia has slammed the brakes on 900 brand-new Mercedes-Benz vehicles worth more than $50 million – after being turned around at shipping ports and stopped from entering the country. The Department of Agriculture has demanded all 900 cars be exported after “the detection of a number of exotic snails” on five separate shipments of vehicles “imported from Europe”.

Mercedes-AMG One now delayed by two years - report

Déjà vu, right? We reported late last year that Mercedes-AMG’s upcoming hypercar, the One, had been delayed. Alas, Germany's Auto Motor Sport is reporting the One has now been delayed a further two years. The One will likely be beaten to production by the rival Valkyrie from Aston Martin, in which Mercedes' parent Daimler AG has a 5.0 per cent stake.
