What is an AMG GT?

Mercedes-Benz and AMG have had a long and wonderful relationship redesigning production vehicles into performance vehicles. With the SLS AMG they broke the pattern and let AMG build the vehicle from scratch. The AMG GT is the next vehicle in that mold! Everything is just a rumor at this point but expect to see the production specifications soon!

Stephen King’s Mr. Mercedes – Starring the SL500!

Stephen King Mercedes book

Any press is good press, right? The murder weapon in Stephen Kings’ new book is a Mercedes-Benz SL500. That would be bad for the company image…except he does have some good things to say about the car!

From StephenKing.com:

“The front end of the SL500 was only slightly crumpled—that famous German engineering—but the hood and the windshield were spattered with gore.”

““How hard would it be for someone to slim-jim a window?” Hodges had asked the mechanic. “Pop the lock that way?” “All but impossible,” the mechanic had said. “These Mercs are built. If someone did manage to do it, it would leave signs.””

The third button was labeled PANIC. Presumably if a mugger attacked you as you were unlocking your car, you could push that one and the car would start screaming for help.”

““I’ve worked at Ross since 1987. Must have seen a thousand Mercs go out the door since then, and I can tell you they all go out with two keys.””

A couple of reviews have included a tidbit about the car that is obviously wrong:

“The following morning, during an “anti-dawn, damp and cold as the cheek of a day-old corpse,” a gray Mercedes-Benz SL500 “not just emerging from the fog but seeming to create itself from it” aims for the huddled masses, 12 cylinders screaming.”

Let’s hope that is just from the reviews and not from the book itself!
