So, what does this mean for the future of AMG coupes, and what will happen next? We think have some answers.
The Mercedes S-Class Takes The Tesla Model S For Granted And Regrets Almost Immediately
The Tesla Model S Plaid has been in the news ever since it came to life. It is undoubtedly the king of drag strips and has proven its might enough number of times in the past. Whether it’s the McLaren 765 LT, the Porsche Taycan Turbo S, the Nissan GT-R, the Dodge Demon, or heck, even a 1,200-horsepower Mustang GT500; the Plaid has obliterated all of them.
But, in the midst of all this, we’ve forgotten what a beast the standard Tesla Model S is. But, the folks at Carwow have reminded us of the EV’s prowess on the drag strip by pitting it against the Mercedes-Benz S-Class S500.

Brabus’ previous Rocket 900 program was based on the Mercedes-AMG GT63 S. Now, the same treatment was applied to the Mercedes-AMG GLE 63 S Coupe.

Five years into its lifecycle, and the AMG GT sports car has grown into its own dedicated lineup that includes a convertible and the car you see here – a sedan that Mercedes markets as a four-door… ahem… 4-door coupe. This specific model blends the sporty essence of the coupe with the comfort, practicality, and family friendliness of a traditional sedan.

2023 Mercedes-AMG EQS 53 4MATIC+
Mercedes-Benz unveiled the EQS earlier this year. This electric S-Class equivalent came with a whole lot of impressive specs and features that put it right on top of the EQ hierarchy. To elevate it to the next level, the German automaker introduced the AMG variant of the EQS called the EQS 53 4MATIC+ that comes with a lot more power and a few other mechanical upgrades. While it’s still not Tesla Model S Plaid-level performance, specs like 750+ horses will surely pull a lot of potential customers.

Mercedes EQS OTA Updates – Literally Everything That Is Wrong With Cars of the Future
Not that long ago, the concept of over-the-air updates for cars sounded pretty cool – who wouldn’t want to have the latest and greatest software? It works great for cell phones, right? Well, when it comes to cars, automakers see it as a way of extorting more money out of you, and the new Mercedes EQS is, quite literally, the epitome of that. After paying six figures for a luxury car, should you have to pay another $105 to play Tetris? Or, should you have to pay another $59 for a simple update that makes the car more gentle to drive? Maybe a little more to make sure some Valet can’t go to fast in your new pride and joy? Well, this is the future, it’s only going to get more expensive, and the Mercedes EQS is the epitome of what’s wrong with the future of the automotive industry.

2021 Mercedes-Benz Posaidon S 63 RS 830+
The Mercedes-AMG S63 is no slouch with 612 horsepower and 664 pound-feet of torque, but what if that’s not enough? Well, according to famed tuner Posaidon, it’s not, and that’s why we’re looking at this tuned version of the S63 today. The same 4.0-liter V-8 lives under the hood, but it now features revised turbos with upgraded ball bearings, new air induction, and a revised exhaust system with new downpipes and sports catalytic converters. In the end, the Posaidon S 63 RS 830+ is good for a whopping 880 horsepower and 885 pound-feet of torque. That kind of power enables this S63 to hit 60 mph in 3.2 seconds and on to a top speed of 217 mph.
However, that’s not where the story ends. Posaidon has another upgrade in the works that will raise the final output to as much as 940 horsepower and 944 pound-feet of torque. Unfortunately, Posaidon hasn’t revealed straight-line performance figures for this upgrade, but it seems safe to speculate that 60 mph will come in around three-seconds flat. On that note, both of the upgrades we’ve discussed so far include physical upgrades, so if you’re not interested in that Posaidon can give you as much as 707 horsepower and 737 pound-feet of torque via simple recalibration of the car’s computer system. Rounding off the whole deal is an electronic lowering module for the AIRMATIC air suspension that will give the S63 a sportier right and more dynamic handling.
2021 Mercedes-Benz E450 Wagon - Driven
Being on the market since 2017, it might seem logical to glance over the Mercedes E-Class until a new-gen model arrives in a few years. That actually couldn’t be further from the truth because the E-Class lineup was refreshed for 2021 with new technology, and updated appearance, and a more efficient powertrain. We’ve been itching to see how the new E-Class stands after its most recent refresh, so Mercedes let us spend a week with the E450 Wagon. It didn’t take long for us to realize that the fifth-gen E-Class has aged well, and in fact, we’d take the E450 Wagon over most SUVs – how’s that for a plot twist?
Daimler Plots A Strategic Move To Strengthen AMG, Maybach, and the G-Class
Mercedes, as a company in general, has been on a roll lately – which is especially true when you look at its electrification efforts.
