Mercedes-Benz‘s fifth-generation E-Class boasts of safety and comfort features expected of the executive car segment. But if you want a beefier ride, here’s an AMG variant for you.

What you get is a AMG-spec twin-turbocharged V6 that’s been tuned to dish out 395 bhp despite having the same 3L engine that powers SLC 43 and C43 thanks to larger...

Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG breaks drifting record

Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Roadster revealed

Check out the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Roadster – the soft-top version of the mean gullwinged SLS AMG coupe. The hardtop version’s considered as one of the best sports cars money can buy these days so perhaps this can vie for the title of best roadster money can buy. With this being a soft-top, the gullwing doors are shelved in favor of the more conventional frameless doors. And it promises to be a nifty conversion as efforts...
