by on Feb.26, 2015

The Mercedes-AMG GT3 will start racing in 2016.

Expect to see some serious track-ready sheet metal make an appearance at the Geneva Motor Show next week, including a track-only offering from Aston Martin, and a dual street and track Cayman GT4 from Porsche.

So, how could Mercedes-Benz be left out of that high-performance pack? It can’t…or won’t, it turns out. Look for the Teutonic maker to bring its own track model to Geneva’s PALExpo convention center in the form of the AMG GT3.

Performance News!

“We are entering a hard-fought and hotly competitive environment with the new Mercedes-AMG GT3,” declares Tobias Moers, the performance brand’s chairman. “You can only give credible proof of your ambition to lead if you’re beating the very best in the game.

Mercedes revives the S-Class Coupe badge for the 2015 2-door flagship.

A month before it makes its official debut at the annual Geneva Motor Show, Mercedes-Benz is offering us a first official look at the next-generation S-Class Coupe.

The 2-door version of the maker’s flagship passenger car line adopts a more athletic stance but one that also shows off even more “bling” than the S-Class sedan – with one of the options including the use of 47 Swarovski crystals in each of the headlamps.

As exclusive as it gets – the ultimate in aesthetic sportiness”, suggests Ola Källenius, the Daimler AG board member overseeing sales and marketing for Mercedes-Benz Cars. “The breathtaking design of the Concept S-Class Coupe marked by sporty-classic proportions and sensual purity is transferred to the series-production S-Class Coupe virtually unaltered. The large coupe has always been the supreme pinnacle of our model range and that’s why it’s now called the ‘S-Class’ again.”

With pop star Aloe Blacc belting out “I Need a Dollar,” Mercedes-Benz officials took the wraps off the next-generation A-Class during their news conference at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show.

As Mercedes brand boss Dieter Zetsche acknowledged, it will take more than a dollar to park one in your driveway, but the maker hints that even with a wide range of new technology, it will be holding the line on the price of the A-Class when it comes to market later this year.

News from Geneva!

The smallest model in the Mercedes line-up will first roll into European showrooms then fan out to dealers around the world.  That will include the U.S. market for the first time, a senior Mercedes executive telling Americans will see the A-Class reach their shores by the end of 2013 or early 2014.


Mercedes offers a Tease of Next-Gen A-Class

Will Americans accept a pocket-sized Benz?

by on Jan.24, 2012

Mercedes expects to produce as many as four variants of the next-gen A-Class.

Luxury cars have traditional been measured by the inch and pound.  But times are changing – at least in most parts of the world.  But it remains to be seen whether U.S. buyers will embrace the pint-sized Mercedes-Benz A-Class, the smallest model ever developed by the German luxury giant.

Downsized luxury cars, such as the Audi A3 and BMW 1-Series, haven’t exactly been hits with traditional buyers.  But, as this teaser image – (and a 56-second preview you can check out on You.Tube) – suggests, Mercedes isn’t going after the same customer who would opt for an S-, E- or even a C-Class.
