Fast Wagons

Remember back in the day when station wagons were just big lazy vehicles that moved people around? If you were born after 1985 then probably not. However if you grew up in the 1960′s and ’70′s then the odds of your family having one of these family trucksters was pretty damn good. It’s now 2013, and to say that the wagons of yesteryear are dead and buried would be an understatement. In this episode of Chris Harris on Cars, the Monkey pits the Audi RS6 against the Mercedes CLS 63 AMG Shooting Brake to see which one will get the ice cream home before it melts.

Ammo Auto Care

If you read RL.com on a regular basis then you know that AMMO Auto Care founder, Larry Kosilla is a good friend of ours. He’s not only one of, if not the best automotive detailer out there, but he’s one of the few people in the industry that personally pushes the envelope when it comes to product development and testing to ensure that his products work the best on your automobile. AMMO recently entered a contest to win a brand new Sprinter van from Mercedes-Benz, plus a good chunk of change to outfit it out with. The contest was based on a company made video explaining why AMMO Auto Care should win. Now obviously we think his video is the best, but if ya’ll wouldn’t mind helping us, help out a friend of RL.com, well, we’d be damn grateful!

C63 AMG Wagon

Performance station wagons are one of the great joys in the automotive world. Tire smoking hooligans with a practical side, these beasts of engineering are not for everyone. However if you’re a wagon person, then these heavy haulers are the bees-knees when it comes to giggles-per-mile. Wagons like the Cadillac CTS-V wagon, Dodge’s now defunct SRT8 Magnum, the Audi RS6 Avant and now, this guy, the 2014 Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Edition 507 Wagon. It packs 507 horsepower, 450 pound-feet of torque and will hit 62 mph in under 4-seconds. In short, it’s awesome. Motor Trends Jonny Lieberman recently traveled to Germany to see if this new AMG will be crowned the new King, or if it’s just an over-hyped grocery getter.

Mercedes A45 AMG v BMW M135i: Chris Harris on Cars

Posted in AMG, Best of, BMW, DRIVE, European Rides, General, Rides, Videos by MrAngry | July 21st, 2013 | Leave a Reply |

Mercedes A45

Two German hot-hatches, one rear-wheel drive, one all-wheel drive. Both come with window stickers over $35,000 in the UK and will never be offered here in the United States. So, should we then, care about them? The answer – YES! YES! YES! Both the Mercedes-Benz A45 AMG and BMW M135i are two cars that would no doubt sell like hotcakes here in the U.S., but since we’ll never get them, we’ll have to be content with rides like the Ford Focus ST and the Mazda Speed3. Great cars on their own, but still a league away from the big boys overseas. Click through as Chris Harris tells us what we’re missing.

850 HP E63 by Weistec Engineering: TUNED

Posted in AMG, Best of, DRIVE, European Rides, General, Mercedes Benz, Rides, Videos by MrAngry | July 11th, 2013 | Leave a Reply |

Weistec Engineering

In 1993 the Mercedes-Benz 500E was pretty much the baddest four door sedan you could buy. It came stock with flared front fenders and a 322 bhp V8 which was good for a 6-second 0-60 run, a good time for the day. Now, 10 years later, a stock E63 (the equivalent of the 500E) puts down 518 horsepower and 516 lb-ft of torque. Horsepower junkies all over the world love numbers like this, but for those who want even more, there’s Weistec Engineering. Matt Farah of /DRIVE’s TUNED just tested their 850 HP E63, and although it wasn’t perfect, according to Matt, it didn’t suck either…

SRT Viper vs Mercedes-Benz SLS Black Series

Posted in AMG, Dodge, Domestic Rides, Educational, European Rides, General, Mercedes Benz, Rides, Videos by MrAngry | July 10th, 2013 | Leave a Reply |

SLS vs Viper

There are two schools of thought when it comes to comparing American and German performance cars. German cars for example are generally more refined, pack in more technology and cater more to the driving experience, where the American’s simply stuff bigger and bigger hammers under the hood. In my experience, neither of these styles is correct, they’re just different. Motor Trends Jonny Lieberman and hot-shoe racer Randy Pobst, recently paired the new 2014 SRT Viper with the Mercedes-Benz SLS Black Series to see which 600 horsepower hammer is the best. Check it out after the jump.

Mercedes-Benz UniMog: Crushin’ It!

Posted in AMG, Car Reviews, Educational, European, European Review, European Rides, General, Mercedes Benz, Rides, Videos by MrAngry | March 29th, 2013 | Leave a Reply |

Unimog

When it comes to heading off-road, vehicles like the Jeep Wrangler, Ford Raptor and Toyota FJ may come to mind. However when it comes to SERIOUS off-roading most people would ditch the aforementioned rides and go straight for the King, or as most know it, the UniMog. Built by Mercedes-Benz, the UniMog has been around since 1947. It’s a true jack-of-all trades and was built primarily to be used by farmers and municipalities. These trucks are not fast, not nimble and certainly not fuel efficient. However, if you are looking for the best off-road vehicle in existence, then there is no beating this thing.

Mercedes SLS AMG Black Series: CHRIS HARRIS ON CARS

Posted in AMG, DRIVE, European Rides, General, Mercedes Benz, Rides, Videos by MrAngry | March 27th, 2013 | Leave a Reply |

SLS AMG BLACK

When most people think of Mercedes-Benz they think of high-end luxury and performance. They think of cars that are better suited to the autobahn rather than the racetrack. Yet that hasn’t stopped them from trying to produce cars that can take on the likes of the Porsche 911 GT3 RS and Ferrari 458. The new Mercedes SLS AMG Black Series is such a car, and according to DRIVE’s resident hoon Chris Harris, it may just have a shot at going for the title.

2013 SLS AMG GT: More Power and More Control?

Posted in AMG, European Rides, General, Mercedes Benz, Rides, Videos by MrAngry | March 10th, 2013 | Leave a Reply |

Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT

The problem with GT cars here in the U.S. is that for some reason, they’re never really as good as we want them to be. They all have high-style and big power, but they’re a compromise between a true sports car and a full-on open road car. Carlos Lago recently got his hands on the new 2013 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT to see just how good this newly revamped super-Benz really is. Check it out after the jump.

Mercedes-Benz G 63 AMG 6×6

Posted in AMG, Best of, Cool Stuff, European Rides, General, Mercedes Benz, Rides, Top of the Heap, Videos by MrAngry | March 8th, 2013 | 1 Response |

Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 6x6

It’s a crying shame that the Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG is one of the most under utilized vehicles sold here in the United States. Generally driven by people of wealth, this is one of those rare beasts that needed an after market builder to get involved before it could actually be taken seriously. Power comes by way of a 5.5-liter twin-turbo V8 that churns out 544 hp and 560 lb.ft. of torque allowing it to cruise at 100 mph while rolling on 37-inch tires. It also has seating for 8 passengers, full-on off-road capabilities and a presence that is not for the faint of heart. The price? A mere $244,000.00 U.S. or 7.5 million rubles. Check out the video after the jump.
