M6 vs SL63

The perplexing thing about BMW’s M cars and anything with an AMG stamp on it is this – are they sports cars, full-on grand tourers or both? Both the BMW M6 and Mercedes-Benz SL63 AMG are brutes when it comes to flat out power, speed and torque, but what about handling and overall road manners? Chris Harris of the DRIVE Network on Youtube recently took both of these cars out for a proper flogging to see if they do in fact fall into a specific category, or if they’re simply a Jack of all trades and master of none. Check it out after the jump.

Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Black Series

Mercedes-Benz SLS Black Series

When the Mercedes-Benz SLS came out in 2010 the motoring press stood up and took notice. This was not just any Mercedes mind you, but the modern interpretation of one of the greatest automobiles ever made, the 1953 Mercedes 300SL Gullwing. The new SLS was packed with the newest technology and of course, an engine made by the Gods. A 6.2-L V8 making 563 hp and 479 lb.ft of torque was stuffed under the hood giving us performance figures of 0-60 mph in 3.8 seconds, a quarter-mile of 11.6 seconds and a top speed of 197 mph. Not too shabby. It’s now 2012 and the boys at Benz have decided to give the SLS the Black Series treatment. Click through and check it out!

Mercedes-Benz AMG Hammer

Wouldn’t it be great to have the pull to walk into the AMG skunk works at Mercedes-Benz headquarters in Germany and pick out a car to flog. Chris Harris has such pull and thankfully for us he generally brings us along for the ride. On this weeks “Chris Harris on Cars” on DRIVE, Mr. Harris borrows a wonderfully quick 1986 AMG Hammer to flog for our visceral pleasure. It’s old, fast and with those outrageously flared fenders, oh so yummy!

Mercedes-Benz Techs Caught Hooning C63 AMG Black

Posted in AMG, Best of, European Rides, FAIL, FAIL / Funny, Mercedes Benz, Rides by MrAngry | April 15th, 2012 | 1 Response |

Mercedes-Benz C63 Black Series

If you’re a certified technician working for Mercedes-Benz then the odds of you having a brain in your head are pretty damn good. Therefore one has to question why someone of sound body and mind would purposely jeopardize their job for the sole purpose of boosting their ego. Honestly, I have no idea, but that’s exactly what happened when a few Mercedes-Benz techs decided to take a new C36 AMG Black Series out for a joy ride. In the video they can be seen partaking in some mild hooning and law breaking. Nothing super death defying mind you, but bad enough that it needs to be addressed. I mean lets face it, if you were about to spend $115,000.00 on a car would you consider this to be the correct break-in procedure. No? Well… me neither.

Mercedes-Benz C 63 AMG Coupe

Synergy. This is what happens when two things meet, compliment each other and then prosper from their joint relationship. AMG and Ducati are two powerhouse name brands in the world of performance. And even though one rides on four wheels and the other on two, that makes no difference because their message is exactly the same. Sex, speed and performance. The following video takes us on a behind the scenes look at the C 63 AMG Coupé photo shoot. That means a blonde clad in a full leather body suit, a wicked white Mercedes-Benz C 63 AMG Coupé and a camera crew that’s bringing out the best in both of them.
