We'll agree that there's nothing quite like the roar of a big ol' naturally aspirated V8, but in modern times (and with new fuel efficiency laws taking hold), turbocharging points the way forward. Nearly every automaker on the planet is scrambling to create turbocharged alternatives to larger-displacement engines, and over the past few years, not offering some sort of forced-induction mill has become quite the automoti...

    1397655060

    You've seen the power a 600-horespower engine can produce on a racetrack. You may have seen the results of what 600 horsepower looks like on a local highway. But have you seen what 600 horsepower can do in an elevator shaft? This might be a new one. Mercedes-Benz introduced its 2015 S63 AMG Coupe in New York on Tuesday night, literally driving the ...

    The 2015 Mercedes-Benz S-Class Coupe is gorgeous. That's a fact. We fell in love with it in concept form at the Frankfurt Motor Show last fall, and swooned over its production-ready body at the Geneva Motor Show earlier this month.

    Frankfurt: Mercedes Concept S-Class Coupe is two-door indulgence [w/videos]
    1378825080

    Back in July, we drove the 2014 Mercedes-Benz S-Class and called it the segment's "new standard bearer" thanks to its heady mix of technologies and sybaritic accoutrements. And while we came away from the new S-Class thinking the new generation had visually improved on its predecessor, we were still left wanting a more dynamic styling statement. That ...

    There are no fancy names or overly conceptual styling gimmicks that leave any doubt as to what Mercedes just revealed at the Frankfurt Motor Show. With the exception of a few minor alterations here and there, the Concept S-Class Coupe gives us a thinly veiled look at the long-awaited replacement for the CL-Class, the all-new S-Class Coupe. As we would ...

    Mercedes-Benz is taking the wraps off its Concept S-Class Coupe tomorrow at the Frankfurt Motor Show, but until then, it has released a short teaser video for its new concept car. Hinting at the direction of the replacement for the Mercedes CL-Class, the brief glimpses we get of the S-Class Coupe are very promising. The video clearly shows the concept's ...

    Geneva: 2012 Mercedes-Benz CL Grand Edition is exactly that
    1331134740

    It isn't only the Mercedes-Benz SL-Class that's celebrating its 60-year milestone, the S-Class coupe – now called the CL-Class – has been around (sort of) since the 1952 300S. Its birthday cake comes in the form of the CL Grand Edition, a hand-finished version of the already monumental CL550 or CL600 that adds exclusive paints and leathers, ...
