Rosgoud in het interieur, een theeservies in het achtercompartiment en dan ook nog een carrosserie die de designkenmerken van een SUV en een sedan in zich verenigt: de Mercedes-Maybach Ultimate Luxury verlegt in tal van opzichten de grenzen.
La rivoluzione a Stoccarda si chiama EQ. Letteralmente è “Electric Quotient”. È il nuovo sub-brand dedicato alle elettriche di Mercedes. Modelli pensati esclusivamente per la trazione elettrica e non versioni a batteria di auto già esistenti. Una gamma vera e completa, almeno a sentire quanto ha dichiarato Thomas Weber, a capo della ricerca e sviluppo della Casa tedesca: “Lanceremo dieci veicoli elettrici entro il 2025”.

A stretched China-only version had already been unwrapped at the Beijing Motor Show.

The next-generation Mercedes-Benz B-Class has been unveiled at the Paris Motor Show, debuting the five-seat MPV that’s closely related to the A-Class and goes head-to-head with the BMW 2 Series Active Tourer. For 2019 it will boast far sportier looks and a radical new fully-digital cockpit incorporating the MBUX infotainment system from the A-Class, while also serving up a sharper drive and technology from the mighty S-Class. It’s on sale from the start of December, with the first deliveries expected in February 2019.
X-Class pick-up gets Maybach panache. They say there’s no accounting for taste, and the latest iteration of the Mercedes X-Class pick-up may just be proof of that.

I’d be exaggerating if I said I had to pull myself off the floor after first learning about Mercedes-AMG’s plan, but it certainly came as a shock. We’ve always known the race to meet the 2021 95g/km fleet average CO2 regulations would bring about widespread downsizing, but so far, much of the performance market has been unaffected by this.
Mercedes plots new driver-focused SL. Eighth generation of the legendary convertible will return to its sporting roots, sharing a new platform with the next AMG GT.

Sold from 1997 until 2001, the largest AMG-engined Benz you could acquire remained the 7.3- litre V12, with ‘73’ badging to identify each special vehicle. Available in both convertible and coupe forms, the original drivetrain that produced 525bhp was eventually picked up by Pagani to power the original Zonda hypercar. As of then, that was where the story ended.

Mercedes-Benz and Chinese car maker Geely have carried out preliminary talks on how the two might co-operate on a series of projects, including future four-cylinder petrol engine and dual-clutch gearbox development, according to senior officials from the German firm. Geely – which has a 9.7% stake in Mercedes parent Daimler and owns brands such as Volvo and Lotus – cemented operational ties with Mercedes’ passenger car division in early 2019, when it agreed to purchase a 50% stake in Smart.
New GLE Coupe. Mercedes targets the US and China with its fast backed SUV, also set to go on sale in the UK this year. Combining the high driving position and off-road capabilities of an SUV with the sweeping tail of a coupe and the nimble handling of a sporting machine, the new GLE coupe is not exactly conventional.

A poke around the new C-Class wagon confirms Mercedes is at the top of its game. Luggage at the ready - the new C-Class estate is coming! We attended the global launch and came away very impressed indeed. Estate cars used to be utility vehicles with an outward appearance that was subservient to their primary function as load carriers. That all changed with the rise of the lifestyle era in the 1990s, and today’s estate car buyers value aesthetics as much as practical strengths. The new, S205 C-Class estate - arriving in the UK this September - scores very well in both respects, with improved practicality within a sleek body that achieves a best-in-class drag coefficient figure of just 0.27Cd.

Retro Classics in Stuttgart is fast establishing itself as a great place to find good-quality classics for sale and, with a major European auction house rumoured to be returning to the show next year, that reputation is only likely to grow.
