Mercedes-Benz

Mercedes-Benz is one of the most celebrated luxury carmakers of all time. Associated with premium vehicles since the early days, the German firm is now one of the most successful manufacturers in the luxury market. Established as Mercedes-Benz in 1926, the company goes back to the late 1800s. Founded as Benz & Cie. in 1883, it became Daimler-Motoren-Gesellschaft in 1890.

Although it’s mainly know for its cars, SUV, and race cars, Mercedes-Benz also manufactures commercial vans, buses, and trucks. Its current car and SUV lineup includes no fewer than 19 nameplates, some of which go back several decades. Iconic classics from the past include the 770K, 500K, 300SL, 190SL, and successors to the current S-Class, E-Class, and C-Class models. Throughout its history, Mercedes-Benz has operated factories in 30 countries spread over five continents.

Mercedes says goodbye to V-8 engines, but that’s not a bad thing!

With electrification being the future, automakers are preparing to say goodbye to big V-8 and V-12 engines. Think about Lamborghini for example, who is ready to replace its famous V-12 with a hybrid powertrain. The same goes for Mercedes, which just announced the end of the V-8 era for the E-Class lineup. However, it seems that the E-Class will not be the only model in the lineup to drop the V-8. The same will happen for all the other AMG models, and the next C63 won’t be an exception.

It features a lot of cool, unique, hidden elements that would usually never be associated with a Maybach badge

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!

Changes inside will be minimal, but an updated infotainment system is expected as is an updated steering wheel.

The Mercedes-AMG One Hypercar Probably Shouldn’t Have Happened

The Mercedes-AMG One proves that F1-powered hypercars and low emissions cannot co-exist peacefully

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.
