The top-of-the-range S-Class V8 model, the Mercedes-Benz S 63 AMG, is to benefit from a completely newly developed powertrain.

2011 Mercedes-Benz E-class - E350 - E550 Cabriolet - First Drive Review

At the launch of the 2011 Mercedes-Benz E-class convertible, the German carmaker brought along some classics from its past.

While the next-generation CLS has been caught a number of times, this is the first time that we’ve seen the high-performance AMG model strutting its stuff in public without heavy cladding.
