Mercedes Spy Shots

Mercedes-Benz is one of, if not the, oldest surviving automakers in the world. Founded in 1881, the first Mercedes automobile was created in 1886. 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.

    Spy Shots: Mercedes-Benz GLK spied with less camouflage
    1409957880

    As development moves forward, the next-generation Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class continues to drop its camouflage. Despite seeing it testing three times now, these are the best shots yet with the least amount obfuscation to give a better idea of its front and rear styling. These photos plainly show the next GLK's two-bar grille up front, and the headlights ...

    Spy Shots: Mercedes S-Class cabrio just about ready to drop its top
    1408291320

    Mercedes hasn't made a convertible version of the S-Class in over four decades now – and never did make a convertible out of the CL-Class – but with the expansion of the flagship family, that's exactly what the German automaker has in store. And here we have the spy shots to prove it. Joining the sedan, coupe and upcoming long-wheelbase ...

    Spy Shots: Mercedes updated M-Class spotted stripping camo
    1406138400

    Following a spate of images in early April, Mercedes has removed some of the camouflage on the facelifted M-Class SUV in preparation for its eventual debut, probably at the 2014 Paris Motor Show. Gone is the swirly, psychedelic camo that featured so heavily on our last round of photos. In its place sits simple, unpatterned vinyl, which is limited to the ...

    Spy Shots: Mercedes C-Class Cabriolet nears production readiness
    1405199400

    Mercedes-Benz has lifted some camouflage off the C-Class Cabriolet, the vehicle that will finally give the German manufacturer a dedicated challenger to the BMW 4 Series Convertible and Audi A5 Convertible. As has been reported already, there's a folding canvas roof below that camouflaged faux hardtop. We'll admit, we do find it somewhat surprising that ...

    Spy Shots: Next Mercedes E-Class caught testing in C-Class body
    1403824860

    At first glance, you might think these spy photos show off the upcoming Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG. After all, this test car sports obviously widened fenders, not to mention camouflage around all of the areas we would expect Mercedes to modify its C-Class sedan for a high-power version. However, according to our spy shooters, it's all a ruse. Under all the ...

    Spy Shots: Mercedes-Benz MLC interior snapped for the first time
    1401732840

    Mercedes-Benz is back testing its new MLC, the lifted, 'four-door coupe' crossover that will challenge the BMW X6 for the title of least utile utility vehicle. We've already shown you exterior images, along with a peak at the AMG variant and now, we have our first look at the new Benz's cabin. The interior looks like pretty standard fare for Mercedes. ...

    Spy Shots: Mercedes C450 wagon looks ready for primetime
    1401226200

    There was a rumor back in April that Mercedes-Benz was busy developing a C450 model that would sit in between the current top-shelf C-Class, the C400, and the coming-soon C63 AMG. It appears that is entirely the case, and our spy shooters have the photos to prove it, showing off the newest model with no camouflage (in fetching Touring guise, no ...

    Spy Shots: Mercedes MLC spied again, this time as an AMG
    1400531220

    First BMW, now Mercedes-Benz. The German luxury manufacturer appears hard at work on its very own challenger to BMW's four-door coupe/crossover, the X6. It's called the MLC, and we've shown it to you before. Just a few weeks back, in fact. Unlike the last set of spy photos we showed you, though, this particular tester gives us our first glimpse at the ...

    Spy Shots: Mercedes opening up new C-Class convertible
    1400189400

    Mercedes-Benz is expanding its lineup, and not just when it comes to crossovers: it's also growing its array of cabrios. Setting aside two-seat roadsters like the SL, SLK and SLS, it wasn't that long ago that the CLK was Benz's only four-seat convertible. But that's since been replaced by the E-Class convertible, which in turn will soon be joined not only ...

    Spy Shots: Mercedes testing C-Class plug-in hybrid modes in Germany
    1399492920

    Testing appears to be underway for what would be the first Mercedes-Benz C-Class with a hybrid powertrain. We can see a pair of the prototypes undergoing testing in Germany, with one, a C-Class Wagon, still heavily clad in camouflage and featuring a more noticeable outlet on the passenger side of its rear bumper. There's also a more production-looking ...

    We've spotted the new Mercedes-Benz C-Class wagon testing in the past, and we even caught a fairly undisguised example of the AMG version in development. However, the latest shots show it with almost no disguise at all. In fact, these vehicles almost look ready to be dropped off at European dealers to find homes with happy consumers. Mercedes did a good ...

    Spy Shots: Mercedes-Benz MLC prepares to take on BMW X6
    1398294900

    Just days ago, we showed you the new Mercedes-Benz Concept Coupe SUV – a swoopy crossover aimed squarely at the BMW X6. We sort of figured from the get-go that this thing had serious production intent, and lo, our trusty spy photographers have just caught this prototype of the slick Benz, likely to be named MLC, out on the road. Even under heavy ...

    1396640700

    Following our first drive of the Mercedes-Benz M-Class a couple of years ago, not much has changed in the land of Merc's midsize, two-row crossover. Sure, the high-performance ML63 AMG version followed the standard models, and reports of a BMW X6-fighting, coupe-like variant have surfaced, but aside from that, things have largely been quiet on the M-Class ...

    Apparently, Mercedes-Benz got around to celebrating Saint Patrick's Day a little late this year because there isn't much else that could explain this eye-catching green and black tiger-striped test car rolling through a very crowded Barcelona street. The vehicle in question is the latest collaboration between the Three-Pointed Star and AMG that is taking ...

    With a new 2015 C-Class already upon us, we've known it's only a matter of time before Mercedes-Benz drops a new C63 AMG on us. And it looks like that time is coming soon. Spied here undergoing testing in its native Germany, this is the second time we're getting a glimpse at the upcoming new C63, but while it may be wearing just as much camouflage as ...

    Spy Shots: Mercedes-Benz CLA45 AMG gets its Shooting Brake on
    1395702900

    We give BMW a whole lot of grief for its niche-exploiting ways. Check our report on the rumored X2 to see what we mean. But in reality, Mercedes-Benz is very nearly as guilty. The latest batch of evidence supporting the argument is this, the Mercedes-Benz CLA45 AMG Shooting Brake. See, Mercedes already makes the A-Class, a five-door hatch that rides on ...

    Just days after we caught the first glimpse of the next-generation Mercedes-Benz C-Class AMG doing cold weather testing, here are some fresh images of its high-performance wagon sibling getting a workout. It has been a while since we've spotted Mercedes testing the C-Class T, but it's clear Affalterbach's version is getting an extra dose of ...

    While the next Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG has been rumored to get a new twin-turbocharged, 4.0-liter V8 with somewhere between 450 and 500 horsepower, the looks of the actual car have been a mystery – at least until now. Our spy shooters have caught Affalterbach's latest creation during cold-weather testing in Sweden, and it's surprisingly ...

    The testing program for the coupe internally codenamed C190 continues in the snow, but when it breaks out into the sunshine we'll know it as perhaps the Mercedes-Benz SLC AMG or GT AMG. Adorned in the same camo outfit as the last time we saw it in December, it could be out working the rumored all-wheel-drive system that will make it more amenable to ...

    The Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class basically invented the four-door coupe niche when the first generation was unveiled in 2004. While it had less practicality than a traditional sedan, it made up for it with tons of style. The second generation continued the lineage in 2010, albeit with a less bulbous shape than the original. The refresh for the second-gen CLS ...
