2021 Mercedes-Maybach S-Class

2021 Mercedes-Maybach S-Class

The Maybach-ed S-Class is back and it’s full of chrome this time around

If we’re being honest here, the new Mercedes-Maybach S-Class was just a matter of when not if. So here it is in all its chrome-y flashiness, coming to satisfy the needs and desires of those who believe the regular S-Class simply won’t cut it.

2020 Lumma CLR G770 R

Lumma has introduced a conversion kit for the Mercedes G-Class that beefs up its aesthetics

German aftermarket company Lumma has come up with a build for another luxurious SUV. The company has given radical twists to many vehicles in the past, including multiple iterations of the Audi Q8. This time, it’s the Mercedes G-Class that goes under the knife.

The German firm is known to design really wild creations, pretty much like Mansory, but this one – according to Lumma’s reputation – is a rather subdued customization. The conversion kit comes with a custom body kit and huge wheels amongst other things.

2022 Mercedes-AMG S 63 e

2022 Mercedes-AMG S 63 e

The range-topping, AMG-prepped S-Class is going hybrid, but it will be the most powerful ever made

The 2022 Mercedes-AMG S 63e is an upcoming, high-performance version of the company’s full-size sedan. Just like its predecessor, the AMG S 63, the 2022 AMG S 63 e will be heavily based on the regular model.

However, the new high-performance sedan will feature a hybrid drivetrain instead of an all-gasoline powertrain. So not only it will be more powerful, but it will also return better fuel economy and will boast some sort of all-electric range. Let’s find out more about that in the speculative review below.

2020 Brabus Rocket 900 "One of Ten"

2020 Brabus Rocket 900 "One of Ten"

This pocket-rocket from Brabus is based on the Mercedes-AMG 4-Door GT63 S and takes less than three seconds to 62 mph

Like ABT is to Audi, Brabus is to Mercedes. These are the tuners that come to mind when you talk about the respective brands. Brabus is here with another creation called the Rocket 900 “One of Ten” that’s based on the Mercedes-AMG GT63 S. The Brabus model comes with changes inside and out, but the biggest changes have happened under the hood. The car didn’t just receive some extra horses and torque; Brabus also increased the displacement of the V-8 powerhouse. The car is super-exclusive and only 10 examples of it will be built.

2020 Posaidon GT 63 RS 830+

2020 Posaidon GT 63 RS 830+

You won’t believe how powerful the Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door 63 S 4Matic has become

Mercedes-AMG’s GT family is a lineup of filthy performance machines, none more imposing than the 730-horsepower GT Black Series. But before the GT Black Series arrived, the 639-horsepower AMG GT 4-Door 63 S 4MATIC+ held court as the most powerful member of the AMG GT family.

Just because that’s the case now, though, that doesn’t mean there’s no room for the four-door powerhouse to reclaim that throne with some help from the aftermarket world. Enter Posaidon.

Let’s find out more about it in the review below.

2020 Mercedes-AMG GLB 35

Merc’s new performance crossover is primed and ready for its turn in the spotlight

The 2020 Mercedes-AMG GLB 35 is a higher performance version of the Mercedes-Benz GLB-Class, a subcompact premium crossover that slots between the tiny GLA and the compact GLC. Unveiled in 2019 with a variety of gasoline and diesel engines, the GLB is now available in a performance-oriented trim and with an AMG badge. Since a full-fledged AMG 45 model is not yet available, the 2020 AMG GLB 35 is the range-topping model of the GLB-Class lineup. The performance crossover comes with a familiar AMG 35 package that includes some extras on the outside, better tech on the inside, and a powerful four-cylinder engine that generates a robust 302 horsepower. Let’s find out more about this hauler in the review below.

2020 Mercedes-AMG G63 by PerformMaster

This Mercedes-AMG G63 receives a lot of carbon fiber treatment and a healthy power boost

The Mercedes-AMG G63 is turning out to be quite popular with the aftermarket tuners. We’ve seen builds from companies like Carlex Design, Wald International, Brabus, Mansory, and many others in the past.

This time, another company has laid its hands on the luxurious, boxy SUV. Germany-based PerformMaster has given the G63 a twist that includes a few cosmetic changes and a power bump that pushes it over 800 horses. Is this enough to set it apart from other customized builds?

2020 Mercedes-AMG GLC 63 S Coupe By Lorinser - Ugly Car, Ugly Wheels, More Power

2020 Mercedes-AMG GLC 63 S Coupe By Lorinser - Ugly Car, Ugly Wheels, More Power

This program is definitely not for everyone

The Mercedes-AMG GLC 63 S Coupe is, by most accounts, a slick-looking performance coupe-SUV. But like most vehicles — and that includes performance-spec models — there are ways to make a model like the AMG GLC 63 S better. There are ways to make it look better, and, certainly, there are ways to make it perform better.

Noted Mercedes tuner Lorinser took up the task of transforming the AMG GLC 63 into a better all-around coupe SUV. The German tuner is known for its programs for Silver Arrow models so this new aftermarket kit for the high-powered GLC should be a walk in the park, right? Right? Well, let’s save the verdict below.

2020 Mercedes-AMG G63 Brabus 700 By Fostla.de

2020 Mercedes-AMG G63 Brabus 700 By Fostla.de

The G63 looks pretty cool in this green vinyl wrap

Brabus is known to customize and give the vehicles it works on a unique twist. Its favorite bunny, the Mercedes-AMG G63, has been transformed into many different iterations. One of them is the Brabus 700. The aftermarket company later tweaked it again with a small performance boost and some exterior upgrades that resulted in the 700 Widestar. Now, another German company called Fostla.de has laid its hands on the Brabus 700 Widestar to give it its own twist. This pattern will make Christopher Nolan proud.

2020 Mercedes GLE Sports Line Coupe by Wald International

2020 Mercedes GLE Sports Line Coupe by Wald International

This is a subtle tuning kit from a tuner that’s known for some outlandish creations

The 2016-2019MY Mercedes GLE Coupe was a standout ride. Taking its roots from the GLE family that was born from the remnants of the departed ML-Class, the GLE Coupe looked the part of a proper coupe-SUV. Sadly, it didn’t perform like one, though that’s partly attributed to the presence of its AMG alter-egos: the GLE 63 Coupe and the GLE 63 S Coupe.

Still, the GLE Coupe remains a darling among Mercedes fans, crossover and SUV enthusiasts, and, in this case, aftermarket tuners. Ward International took a stab at creating an aftermarket package for the flashy Mercedes coupe-SUV, one that includes aesthetic improvements, performance upgrades, and, a flashy set of new wheels to boot. In other words, it’s a typical “Black Bison” project from the same tuner that gave birth to the name. The only caveat is that this isn’t a Black Bison kit; Wald instead calls it the Sports Line.

2020 Mercedes-AMG G63 Yachting Edition by Carlex Design

2020 Mercedes-AMG G63 Yachting Edition by Carlex Design

This Polish aftermarket company gives the G63 a nautical twist for the sea lover in you

The Mercedes-AMG G63 is a popular SUV among enthusiasts and aftermarket companies alike. This time, Carlex Design Europe has laid its hands on the boxy beauty and gave it a special treatment.

Called the Yachting Limited Edition, this design is a “marine version of the iconic Mercedes G63 AMG” as Carlex puts it. The company has made a few tweaks to the exterior, but most of the changes come inside the cabin. With all the light-shade leather and wood trim on the interior, it looks pretty neat, doesn’t it?

2020 Mercedes-AMG GP 63 Bi-TURBO by G-Power

2020 Mercedes-AMG GP 63 Bi-TURBO by G-Power

The Mercedes-AMG GT 4-door can now flex muscles it didn’t know it had

G-Power’s reputation is one of the foremost BMW tuners in the land. That reputation has laid the foundation for the German tuner to branch out to other automakers, including Bimmer’s crosstown rival, Mercedes-Benz. Take this program for the Mercedes-AMG GT 63 4-door, for example. In keeping with tradition, G-Power is presenting a three-stage engine upgrade program that pulls some sickening power and performance figures out of the AMG GT 4’s 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V-8 engine. On top of that, G-Power’s new kit for the power-packed four-door luxury Merc-AMG also includes a new set of wheels and a smattering of other cosmetic upgrades that help elevate the AMG GT 4-door’s stature higher than where it’s already at. If you thought the Mercedes-AMG GT 4-door is the most subdued of all AMG GT models, then prepare to be blown away with what G-Power is offering for the high-powered sedan.
