We've decided to throw our collective brainpower at what may be the single most difficult question currently confounding the best minds our planet has to offer: What is the best used used luxury car you can buy for the price of a 2015 Nissan Versa?
Brabus had to limit the torque in the new 850 6.0 Biturbo Coupe to "only" 848 lb-ft and the top speed to "just" 217 miles per hour, taking the Mercedes S63 AMG Coupe to new heights at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show.
Those looking to cover miles of autobahn in the blink of an eye and the height of luxury will want to scope out the new Brabus Rocket 900, a tuned version of the Mercedes-Benz S65 AMG with nearly 900 horsepower and over 1,000 torques on tap.
The massively opulent Mercedes-Benz S-Class Pullman limousine is finally going to debut at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show. The German brand is also displaying the C-Class Plug-in Hybrid to prove that it can be efficient, too.
Has Daimler's Ultralux Brand Gone From Overpriced To High Value?
Mercedes-Benz is relaunching its failed Maybach ultra-luxury division – sort of. This 2016 Mercedes-Maybach S600 inaugurates a new sub-brand with a suddenly reasonable-sounding price tag. We drive it and let you know if it still feels like big money.
Our Editors Reflect On Their Favorite Rides From 2014
As the year comes to a close, our editors are all taking time to reflect on the machinery that made 2014 so special, with one simple, open-ended question as the guide: "What's the best car you drove this year?"
Mercedes-Benz officially revived the Maybach name as a sub-brand with the reveal of the luxed-up S600 at the LA Auto Show last week, but that's only the tip of the proverbial iceberg when it comes to the German automaker's new plans for its uber-prestige marque.
The Mercedes-Maybach S600 is a car made for a town like Los Angeles, which so thoroughly enjoys excess. We're not only discussing the new car's wildly opulent interior, which is arguably the nicest ever fitted to a car with a Silver Arrow on its nose, but its mechanicals. Mercedes-Benz's engineers have had as much of a field day with the greasy bits of the Maybach S600 as the designers did with the cabin.
We'll admit it, we're really looking forward to more time with the Mercedes-Benz S-Class Coupe. Compared to other high-dollar luxury coupes – we're looking at you Bentley Continental GT – it's more stylish, easily more affordable, and since it's a Mercedes, lacks the sense of fragility that comes with a more exotic name plate.
If you feel like spending the price of a house (most places) on a very fast and comfortable German luxury sedan, then you're in luck. The configurator for the new Mercedes-Benz S-Class Coupe is ready and waiting, and it's not cheap to buy this much opulence.
It used to be that if you wanted a Mercedes-Benz S-Class, your choice pretty much came down to which engine you wanted, and that was that. But into the new S-Class, Mercedes is integrating several other model lines and extending its flagship family (both literally and figuratively) as far as it will stretch.
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.
