Update1 – 367HP 2017 Mercedes-Benz C43 Cabrio Leads Gorgeous New C-Class Convertible Line

 Updated with live photos The new C-Class Cabrio just made its global debut! A gorgeous soft-top makes a sexy fashion statement in contrast colors, while avoiding a folding hardtop makes much more space for backseaters and luggage. The new C300 and C400 Cabriolets will be topped in the USA by a C43 AMG 4Matic.  This top model delivers 367HP through a nine-speed automatic and standard AWD.  Sprint times are comfortably under five seconds for the light AMG and perhaps even the C400 4Matic.  That model puts out 333HP through the same drivetrain, but with less vigor. Aircap, Airscarf and a …

4.4s, 174MPH BRABUS C450 AMG Bumps Power to 410HP Via Now-Warrantied ECU Reflash

BRABUS is waist-deep in new C-Class upgrades!  This makes great sense: many of the mods fit not just the sedan but also the upcoming C-Class Coupe and the Euro wagons.  So there is clearly a big group of owners who can benefit from big power and style mods. From the C600 at the top of the flight list, we now have the C450 AMG sliding in above the Brabus C300 and C400 Sport. The C450 AMG is the lightly-sportified production model below the C63.  As such, it is already seriously rapid. But it does lack that last bit of exterior menace, and …

2017 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe – Posh AMG Sport Style for C300 and C400 USA Twins

    Mercedes has a half-dozen all-new models revealed so far for 2016 and 2017.  The GLE, GLE Coupe, GLS, GLC for the SUV family are all fresh or all-new. SLC, SL, S-Class Cabrio, E-Class and many more.  So they are forgiven for meting out the excitement in auto show season.  The Deeetroit show for MB focuses on the SLC and S63 ragtop. But there is MUCH excitement in terms of new models revealed online, but as-yet unseen or driven. The new C-Class Coupe is near the top of the list!   This fresh set of 61 new photos of …

2017 Mercedes-AMG C63-S Coupe Revealed! 510HP Widebody V8TT With RWD LSD

The new Mercedes-AMG C63 Coupes just debuted online — and have rocketed from the bottom of the AMG desirability charts to bang near the top. The very ancient-feeling CLK has been run into the hills; the villagers are too distracted by its icky design to appreciate even the Clarkson-approved Black Series lately. Even the CLK name betrayed its old-Merc place in the product lineup. So the biggest new update is a full name change: Mercedes-Benz CLK63 AMG becomes the Mercedes-AMG C63 Coupe. And that just starts a massive mudslide of changes for the all-new platform, powertrain and tech suite. The …

2017 Mercedes-Benz C300 Coupe Revealed – Arrives Stateside in March 2016 With High-Fashion Style

It is an exciting time to be a two-door in the Mercedes range. After years of CLK and CL doldrums, the new S-Class Coupe now has an equally stylish kid brother. The new C300 and C300 4Matic are just the start for this C-Class Coupe: a C450 AMG and C63 AMG are also virtually guaranteed shortly after the main models roll out next Spring. A cabrio variant is also en route for 2018. The design is actually remarkably appealing, considering it is almost a direct mashup of the new C-Class and the S-Class Coupe. The proportions really work — even …
