2022 Mercedes-AMG GT R By BS Teile Center

2022 Mercedes-AMG GT R By BS Teile Center

903 horsepower seems more appropriate for a car like the GT R

Who said only tuners can work on updating sports cars? Take BS Teile Center, for example. Its origins are rooted in selling used Mercedes-Benz parts, but this didn’t stop it from creating the perfect AMG GT R. And, it did this just by using original parts from model variants with superior features and drive systems.

2023 Mercedes-Benz SL

2023 Mercedes-Benz SL

The Mercedes SL takes everything that’s great about an AMG roadster and amplifies it to a place that’s beyond your wildest expectations

The new Mercedes SL is an AMG special that comes to bring new life to the SL name with impressive performance, stylish looks, and a very cool soft top that’s not only fast but sheds some major weight. Thanks to its unique design, it’s even the first SL since the 1980s to feature those barely usable jump seats in the rear. That’s right, the new Mercedes SL is actually a 2+2 roadster. So, with all of this said, we have some questions to answer. Is the new Mercedes SL doing justice to the AMG lineup? Is the new Mercedes SL really designed for everyday use? Will it be worth the high price tag?

2022 Mercedes AMG SL63

The next AMG SL63 strips almost all of its Camouflage, right before the official Debut

The next-generation Mercedes AMG SL63 has repeatedly been spotted out testing. The car is slowly being unveiled, as it features less camouflage every time.

2021 Posaidon RS 830+

2021 Posaidon RS 830+

585 horsepower is great, but 880 horsepower sounds even better!

Posaidon has produced a number of RS 830+ packages. The first ones were based on the AMG S63 and the AMG GT 4-Door, and the newest one is based on the AMG GT R Roadster. In standard form, the AMG GT R Roadster delivers a total of 585 horsepower and 516 pound-feet of torque, but Posaidon found a solution to further increase the final output of the V-8 engine.

The tuner added two completely new, ball-bearing, high-performance turbochargers, forged high-performance pistons, a sports air filter, improved fuel pumps, and high-performance spark plugs. As a result the engine now delivers a total of 880 horsepower and 737 pound-feet of torque! Thanks to the extra 295 horsepower and all the updates the 0 to 60 mph sprint is now made in 2.9 seconds.

Top speed also goes up to an impressive 223 mph. And, if 880 horsepower is a little bit too much for you, Posaidon has two more options for you. The first one is called RS 830 - and it only delivers 830 horsepower and 700 pound-feet of torque. There is also an entry-level version that delivers 780 horsepower and 626 pound-feet of torque

And finally, there is a version that only includes software optimization and delivers 670 horsepower and 590 pound-feet of torque, which is still a very nice improvement over the factory numbers.

2020 Mercedes-AMG GT R Roadster - Driven Review and Impressions

2020 Mercedes-AMG GT R Roadster - Driven Review and Impressions

The drop-top track-bred GT R Roadster is not a vehicle you should take lightly

The Mercedes-AMG GT R is a real looker with its long nose and swooped back cabin. Just looking at it evokes all the feelings you’d expect from a precision-built, six-figure machine that bears both the AMG and Mercedes logo. It’s an impressive car, to say the least, but what happens when you get behind the wheel of one of the 750 GT R Roadsters that will be produced? Does it still evoke that same high-end sports car feeling? Does it still feel like it’s ready for the track from the moment you sit down in the seat? Does it drive any different compared to the coupe it is based on? Well, we spent a week with the AMG GT R, and we’ve set out to answer all those questions and more.

2020 Mercedes-AMG A45

The company’s cool hatchback goes wilder than ever!

The 2020 Mercedes-AMG A45 is the range-topping version of the fourth-generation A-Class hatchback. Unveiled in 2019, it slots above the AMG A35 in the range thanks to a more powerful engine, a more aggressive exterior, and extra equipment on the inside. Powered by a redesigned version of the AMG-tuned four-cylinder engine that cranks out 382 horsepower, the 2020 AMG A45 is the most powerful A-Class to date. But for the first time ever, Mercedes-Benz introduced an S-badged version of the hatchback, with even more power. In this tune, the AMG A45 delivers an amazing 416 horses, more than any other hot-hatch on the market as of 2020. This four-cylinder is also the most powerful of its kind in production, as well as the engine with the highest horsepower per liter. Let’s find out more about the 2020 Mercedes-AMG A45 in the comprehensive review below.

2019 Mercedes-AMG GT C Roadster - Driven

2019 Mercedes-AMG GT C Roadster - Driven

An iron fist in a velvet glove

When you see one on the street, you can’t stop staring. The long hood, the aggressive nose with the classic-looking grille, the big wheels hiding sizeable brakes and the short tail. It’s got all the ingredients of a Gran Turismo built by the book and, in Roadster trim, it offers limitless headroom for those endless summer days.

The AMG GT is everything the SLS was plus some more and the AMG GT C Roadster is the most powerful and fastest AMG GT with a drop-top that you can get Stateside for now, as no GT S Roadster is offered for the 2019 model year. Still, with 550 horsepower and a top speed that comes perilously close to 200 mph, it’s hard to see why you’d want more. The good news is that, in spite of all of the muscle, the AMG GT C Roadster still offers all the refinement you’d expect coming from a product of the Mercedes house.

If you want to enjoy the best that Affalterbach’s got to offer, you can’t go wrong with the Mercedes-AMG GT, the two-door sports car from the brand with the three-pointed star that’s ready to take on all of the GTs on the market, including the 911, the Corvette, and the Audi R8 - and do it with an added dose of style. Yes, the gullwing doors that made the SLS feel extra special are no more but let’s not forget Lamborghini isn’t offering scissor doors on all its models either - and you can hardly complain when behind the wheel of one. The chassis is on point, as is the paddle-controlled automatic transmission that helps you get from naught to 60 mph in just 3.7 seconds. We tested one to see if the $34,150 price gap between the standard AMG GT Roadster and the C version is worth it. Read on to find out.
