The German company is now operated by Daimler-Benz and headquartered in Stuttgart, Germany. In addition to producing automobiles, Mercedes-Benz also makes commercial trucks and buses in Europe.

    The folks in the ad department for Mercedes-Benz in Europe were certainly being creative when they came up with the company's latest commercial. The bizarre spot is simultaneously an ode to that Patrick Swayze classic Dirty Dancing, a favorite of mom's everywhere, while also being weirdly sexual. Appropriately titled Dirty Driving, the commercial stars ...

    Supercars Meet Muscle Trucks, In Search Of The Most Potent Twist 1412697480

    Horsepower may steal a lot of headlines, but the always-more-complex torque figure is often a critical one for both the workingman and the motoring playboy. The measure of rotational force is a function of horsepower and engine rpm, and it's also the twist that can liquefy one's tires or haul one's horse trailer. Good stuff It follows then, that as with ...

    Report: Mercedes-AMG GT Black Series already planned
    1412631060

    Typically when Mercedes-Benz releases a new model, we only expect it to be a matter of time before the AMG performance version follows. The thing is that with Benz's new sports car already wearing the AMG badge and boasting as much as 503 horsepower in S trim, what would the German automaker even call an even more extreme version of the new Mercedes-AMG ...

    1412283600

    The new Mercedes-AMG GT is an absolute stunner with svelte styling and cutting-edge tech under its skin. However, as a two-seat coupe, it's just not practical for a large swath of people. The German company realizes that, of course, and for customers who want to combine high performance with the ability to carry four people, latest versions of ...

    There are cars debuting in Paris this year that we've heard virtually nothing about until we showed up at Porte de Versailles, and others that we've hotly anticipated seeing for months or more.

    Here's a fun fact: certain classical songs double as excellent driving songs. Wagner's Ride of the Valkyries is one such example. So, as soon as you here those iconic notes, be certain you're in for some seriously cool sheet metal. Any Mercedes-Benz 600 would qualify for such a musical treatment, but Jay Leno's example is doubly worth a ...

Especially for things like beer, ice cream, flowers, teams of television adventurers, and... more beer. There have been many automakers that have made vans over the years, and many that still do.

    Say hello to the 2015 Mercedes-AMG C63. That's right, it's no longer the Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG – its a formal Mercedes-AMG product, just like the GT that just launched earlier this month. Coincidence? Hardly. The new C63 packs the same twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V8 and features some of the same new-age tuning that AMG used in creating its new ...
