This is 1 of Just 5 1988 Mercedes-Benz 6.0L AMG Coupes in the US
This 1988 Mercedes-Benz 6.0L AMG Coupe is just 1 of 5 in the U.S. and is the first of its kind to be up for sale through an online auction. MB Market, a site dedicated to auctions for Mercedes-Benz vehicles, is the host of this rare model and it will be on offer until August 4th at 2:00 p.m. EST. Though what makes this particular Mercedes so sought after?
The Mercedes CLE Marks the End for the C-Class and E-Class
Insufficient sales of the E-Class coupe and the C-Class coupe cannot go unnoticed, and it is finally the time to give the last hurrah to the current models. Automotive News reports that the Stuttgart-based carmaker has confirmed the discontinuation of these models with U.S., and the launch of their replacement, the new CLE-Class is imminent. If the cards are played right, the new CLE-Class will be an instant hit because it will be very similar to the Mercedes-AMG SL-Class in terms of design aesthetics and features.
The AMG one and GT 63 S Share More DNA Than You Think
The Mercedes AMG Project One was first unveiled about four years ago and has been in development at least to some degree ever since. We knew it would take a while to get the 1,000 horsepower 1.6-liter turbo hybrid V-6 Formula 1 powertrain to play well on the road, but it has been a long wait. However, with the development stage being replaced with the production stage we are starting to see just how much of the Project One is being carried over to more conventional models.
10 Road-Legal Cars Powered By F1 Engines
The term “race car for the road” has been abused quite thoroughly by marketers wanting to make certain cars more appealing to car enthusiasts. With that said, few things scream “race car for the road” as loud as a Formula One engine, and these 10 cars are motivated by engines based on, or developed for Formula One racing.
US Regulations Create A Roadblock for the AMG One Supercar
When it comes to cars banned in the U.S., the list is very long and includes a lot of cool cars like the Jaguar XJ220-S or the Nissan Skyline R34 GT-R V-spec. Even more recent cars, like the McLaren Speedtail or the Koenigsegg One:1 are on the same list. And this is because National Highway and Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has very strict criteria to determine which car is safe to be offered in the States. And when we say safe, we mean safe for the passengers, for the other drivers on the road, for the environment, and for the economy itself.
Another car that has been hit by these strict regulations is the recently-launched Mercedes-AMG One.
The 2023 Mercedes-AMG One is a 219-MPH Rocket with F1 Tech
It’s been a little over five years since Mercedes went crazy and promised to shove a Formula 1 engine into a street legal road car. That day has finally come, and sure enough, the AMG One lives up to the hype with a hybridized F1 engine for a heart and a total system output of 1,049 horsepower, all of which is 100-percent road legal. Somehow, despite the fact that the AMG One probably shouldn’t have ever happened, AMG pulled it off. Here’s what we know about it so far.
Spy Shots: An Early Look at the 2023 Mercedes-AMG GT
Mercedes unveiled the AMG GT in October 2014 at the Paris Motor Show as a replacement for the SLS AMG. Now, after eight years of production, the model is ready to enter a new generation. It will only be offered as a coupe this time around, with the new SL serving as the dedicated AMG roadster of the lineup. And now that Mercedes is done introducing the various trims the new generation SL roadster, the company will focus its attention on a new generation AMG GT. In the past few months, the next AMG GT has been caught testing many times, but now it has been finally caught testing in its natural habitat: the Nürburgring race track.
Video: Supercar Blondie Checks Out the World’s Only Off-Road Mercedes-Maybach
Back in December 2021, Mercedes announced the first details on the Project Maybach - a unique concept car designed in collaboration with Virgil Abloh. The debut came less than a month after Virgil Abloh’s death, so the details on the concept were very limited. More details on the concept were revealed at the beginning of May 2022, during the latest Design Essentials event, but nothing too in-depth. And this is where Supercar Blondie comes to the rescue with a super-detailed video!
The Mercedes-AMG One Hypercar Probably Shouldn’t Have Happened
As far as high-performance cars go, the Mercedes-AMG One is one of the most impressive technological feats of our time. Unfortunately, it’s for that very reason that Mercedes management now regrets indulging in the ambitious project. While putting an F1 powertrain into a road-going car sounds great and it has been done in the past, apparently, Mercedes management did not account for all the challenges caused by adapting a racing engine for road use.
Confirmed: This Really is a $142 Million Mercedes 300 SLR
Another day, another broken record. A legendary, 1955 Mercedes 300 SLR was recently sold at an auction in Germany, for the record price of €135 million, which equals $142.9 million at current exchange rates. This makes the 300 SLR the most expensive car in the world, easily dethroning the 1963 Ferrari 250 GTO, which was sold for $78.0 million back in 2018.
Spy Shots: An Early Look at the 2024 Mercedes-AMG GT E-Performance PHEV
We already knew that the next generation AMG GT will bring major changes. First, it will only be offered as a coupe - as the Roadster will be replaced by the new SL, and second, following the footsteps of the SL, it will initially be offered in two versions: GT53 and GT63 - both of which have already been caught testing. A more powerful version will also be offered, however, and just like with the SL, this range-topping plug-in hybrid will wear the E-Performance badge.
At $142 Million, The Mercedes "Silver Arrow" Could Be The Most Expensive Classic Car In the World
It is a well-established fact that for the longest time, the highly coveted title of the world’s most expensive car was held by a 1964 Tour de France winning Ferrari 250 GTO which fetched $70 million at a private auction. But, all this while, the 1955 Mercedes 300SLR, which currently is a part of Mercedes’s heritage fleet, was valued at over $100 million. However, it was never active in the running for the title of the world’s most expensive car because nobody would have put their money on Mercedes parting ways with the car that not only cemented the auto marque’s reputation for quality and craftsmanship, but even birthed the German automaker’s racing endeavors in the post-war era.
Mercedes-Benz C112 - An Abandoned Technological Miracle
The long history of Mercedes-Benz spawned plenty of amazing projects, many of which resulted in some of the greatest road-going and racing vehicles, we have ever seen. You only need to look at cars like the 300SL, 300SLR, CLK GTR, SLR McLaren, and others. There are, however, many cars that never saw the light of day. Among the most obscure projects to come out from Mercedes-Benz’s test facilities is the 1991 Mercedes C112. It had the potential to be the most ground-breaking sports car of the 1990s, but sadly, Mercedes decided not to make it.
