Whilst the latest Merc C63 Coupe shares little with its older sibling, this isn’t a bad thing because you now get 503 hp coming from its AMG 4.0-liter V8 biturbo engine, yes the same one used in the AMG GT S sports car which will get you on your way to a sub-4-second 0-60 time and a top speed of up to 180 mph.
Just a few days ago, Mercedes-Benz released the initial photos and information on their brand new 2011 CL-Class, showing off its updated luxury coupe. The main attraction in the new 2011 CL is a new twin-turbo 4.6-liter V8 producing 429 horsepower and 516 pound-feet torque in the CL550 model.
The CL600 pictured by Autoblog boasts an even greater 510 horsepower, 612 lb-ft torque twin-turbo V12 (and believe me, MB certainly have plenty reminders of this within the car itself!).

Here’s a quick gallery of the new upcoming 2010 Mercedes Benz E-Class Convertible. The two-door car luxurious cabriolet, available with seven engine configurations in Europe, will go on sale from January 11 next year. The new 2010 E-Class Cabriolet focuses on all-year drivability with an acoustic soft top, turbulence reduction, and neck-level heating (see picture), the E500 model tops as much as 388 bhp.
We recently featured the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG in the new Gran Turismo 6, now we’ve got more pictures of this retro-style supercar.
Underneath the bonnet is a 6.2L V8 that is capable of delivering 563 horsepower (at 6,800 RPM) and 479 pound-feet of torque (at 4,750); 0-100 kmh (62 mph) takes place in 3.8 seconds and 200 kmh (124 mph) in around 11.8 seconds.
This is amazing news for petrolheads like myself. The Mercedes SLS AMG is an awesome, new gullwing supercar, it was also the highlight of the 2009 International Motor Show (IAA) in Frankfurt, what wonderful news it is to know its now been confirmed that we’ll be able to drive it in the upcoming Gran Turismo 5 for PlayStation 3.
The New York Auto Show 2009 has started! Here is just a summary of some of the new cars revealed this year so far, pictures courtesy of the AutoBlog…
The big coupe’s bodywork has been reworked with plenty of carbon fiber aerodynamic bits and the interior features a full race cockpit complete with lightweight Alcantara seats and a full roll cage, a marked change from the standard car’s leather-lined grand tourer accommodations.
Check out the latest and upcoming 2010 E-Class with AMG sports package. To me it still doesn’t look like much of a sports car, in terms of design it still feels much like a rich businessmen’s E-Class and nothing more, but just look at the cockpit – that’s quite something else!
