2022 Mercedes-Maybach Edition 100
It was September, 1921 when Maybach Motorenbau GmbH presented its first mass-produced car at the motor show in Berlin. The model was named W3 and it was the first German production car with four-wheel brakes, an epicyclic gear system, and an interior with the finest materials.
To commemorate the event, Maybach launched the special "Edition 100". It will be based on both the S-Class and the GLS, each limited to 100 units. In Europe, orders will begin in the fourth quarter of 2021 and sales at the beginning of 2022. The U.S. market will only get the sedan version with sales to begin in the first half of 2022.

2020 Mercedes-AMG Project One
Just a few years ago, Mercedes floated plans to create a new hybrid hypercar, one that would dominate in the burgeoning world of electrified ultimate-performance machines. The German automaker confirmed those plans a year ago, and now, with AMG celebrating its 50th anniversary, the uber-car has made its big debut at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show. Mercedes says the new mega-machine brings “the very latest and efficient, fully-fledged Formula 1 hybrid technology to the road.” That includes a 1.6-liter V-6 that’s shockingly similar to the powerplant in Merc’s F1 car, spinning to 11,000 rpm and producing upwards of four figures. Drivers sit in a carbon fiber tub, stick harder with active aerodynamics, and turn better with push rod suspension. All impressive stuff, to be sure, but is it enough to topple the current top-dog performance machines?
Regardless, the Project One is already a massive hit, garnering huge attention for Mercedes-AMG and nearly selling out even before its big sheet pull. Drawing from Mercedes’ championship-winning experience at the top of the motorsport heap and developed with input from various AMG Formula 1 team members, the Project One is the very definition of a halo car, promising to set the technological drum beat by which all future AMG cars will dance. Read on for the juicy details and specs.
Updated 09/18/17: The Mercedes-AMG Project One has arrived, and we’ve got all the info you need right here. Also, check the "Pictures" tab for some images taken in Frankfurt.

2017 Mercedes-Maybach S 600 Pullman Guard
When you’re wealthy and in power, people want to kill you. So, how do you get out of the mansion or office without fear of being shot up or blown up by a roadside bomb? You ride in something like the car you see here, the Mercedes-Maybach S 600 Pullman Guard. The S 600 Pullman Guard is based on the S600 Guard but has been extended to accommodate four rear passengers. The S 600 Guard was the first non-civilian vehicle to be rated with ballistics protection level VR10, but due to the extended length, the Pullman Guard is only rated at VR9. Be that as it may, it’s still certified for blast resistance in accordance with Directive ERV 2010 and, at ballistics rating VR9, it can sustain multiple shots from high-powered weapons such as the M60 machine gun, M14 rifle, or FAL FN chambered in 7.62 x 51mm NATO (.308).
To go along with this protection, the occupants of the S 600 Pullman Guard ride in the definition of luxury, comfort, and exclusiveness. There are two executive seats in the rear for the man of the hour and his VIP guest and two fold-down seats for the less-important – you know military advisors, translators, etc. With healthy doses of leather inside as standard, and extended length and height, there’s lots of open space for conducting business.
The world is a crazy place, and high-profile people need the utmost in protection. That’s why cars like the Audi A8L, BMW 7-Series High-Security, and the S 600 Pullman Guard exist. The bombs can go off, and the bullets can fly, but chances are that if you’re inside, you’ll be just fine. And, if not, at least you’ll die comfortably, right? Either way, let’s dive on in and take a closer look at the new Mercedes-Maybach S 600 Pullman Guard.

2017 Mercedes-Benz E-Class L
Mercedes-Benz is appealing to the growing market of luxury sedans in the Chinese market with this stretched version of the E-Class. The car, called the E-Class L, is built in China and is exclusively sold there, meaning no other markets see this E-Class limousine.
The car shares the same basic design and structure of the standard E-Class, but is lengthened by 5.5 inches for a wheelbase that measures 121.2 inches – 1.7 inches longer than the standard S-Class. This directly adds 5.3 inches of extra legroom for the rear seats, basically making the E-Class L a miniature Maybach.
The Benz also comes with a slew of luxury amenities and comforts, including a folding center armrest for the rear seats that offers wireless phone charging, heated leather, a USB port, and an integrated touch screen controller. Comforts are not lost on front seat occupants either. The driver has use of the dual 12.3-inch display screens, new touch-sensitive controls on the steering wheel, and the infotainment system controller on the center console that recognizes handwriting and characters.
Mercedes has only confirmed a single powertrain for the Chinese E-Class L – the 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder. This means the car’s designation will be the E200 L.
