These look just like the 421 Sport Package Wheels from the 2014 S550!

The “Red Cut” leather is really interesting. It looks like the leather is black on top and red underneath. Every perforation in the seat shows the red.

Motor Trend 2014 G63 AMG 6×6 First (and only) Drive Review!

The 2014 Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 6×6 is not coming to the US and I will probably never even lay eyes on one in person. Normally, I wouldn’t mention it. But this Motor Trend First Drive Review does a great job of explaining the incredible technology while boggling at the ridiculousness of it.

“Turns out that the gargantuan 6×6 is actually hand-built on the same assembly line that produces every other G-Wagen.  A workforce 1500 strong recently added a second shift because G-Wagen sales are through the roof, with 2012 the stout off-roader/military vehicle’s best full sales year since production started in 1979.”

“At current exchange  rates, the 6×6 costs a little less than $625,000. Take out the 19 percent European value-added tax and you’re still looking at around $525K. (Sadly, Mercedes isn’t selling the 6×6 in the States, or the V-12 G65 — yet.) The 6×6 weighs a touch more than 9000 pounds (up from 5876 for our last standard G63), yet Mercedes claims this monster can hit 60 mph in fewer than 8 seconds.”

“Like for real, jumping a 9000-pound, six-wheeled pickup truck with me grinning like an idiot from the passenger seat. Since we had our usual crew of photo and video people (“Good, but do it once more, please…”), Erwin jumped with the 6×6 again and again and again — I neglected to actually count, but I’d guess 20 jumps is pretty accurate. Then he drove through four feet of water, and then started bounding up boulders at unbelievable angles. Then he let me drive the 6×6. Which, according to Mercedes, makes me the first journalist to be given the thrill.”

“If you’re familiar with portal axles, you’ll feel  just a whiff of the familiar rocking sensation. Then the 536 hp and 561 lb-ft of torque kick in and you’re off like a hippopotamus over a waterfall.”

“I should probably mention that the 6×6 has five differentials. This gets a little tricky, but it’s worth explaining…”

“Inexplicably, there’s no backup camera. Now, I realize complaining about a lack of a backup camera is similar to what my predecessors did in the 1970s and ’80s when they’d moan about the lack of rear visibility in a Lamborghini Countach…I think 6×6 owners will develop the technique of just running over the Lamborghini parked behind them. When I asked Axel Harries why no backup camera, he just put his head down and started laughing.”

“Every time I saw it, I turned into a 12-year-old boy, simply giddy with each glimpse. I think the lucky, wealthy folks who purchase AMG’s biggest, most expensive toy will experience the same sense of childlike huzzah and wonderment every time they step into their garage.”

SLS AMG GT3 Black Swan Racing Team at Lime Rock Park

Black Swan Race Team is based in Boston running an SLS AMG GT3 in the SCCA Pirelli World Challenge series this year. Black Swan Racing Team owner and driver Tim Pappas is a long time AMG customer and enthusiast, and runs a top notch Team operation. They are committed to the SLS AMG GT3 Customer Sport program in the long run which might include the new IMSA United Sports Car Racing series launching in 2014 which is a merger of the Grand American Rolex Sports Car Series and the American LeMans Series and will include such world class endurance racing events as the Rolex 24 at Daytona, Sebring 12 Hours, Watkins Glen 6 Hours and Petit LeMans at Road Atlanta, along with a full slate of shorter races around the US.

Our own Will Vetter from AMG Product Management spent some time with the Tim and the Black Swan Team at the recent race at Lime Rock Park.

2014 Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG 4Matic Training at Atlanta Classic Cars!

Mercedes E63 at Atlanta Classic Cars

I was lucky enough to spend a few hours yesterday with this amazing 2014 Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG 4MATIC. We received some technical training and some hands on experience with Race Start and the updated parking assist.

E63 AMG at Atlanta Classic Cars

I kept trying to get a picture that really showed off the 19″ matte black 10-spoke wheels (code 752). I am normally not a fan of black wheels but these really complimented the car.

I am now prepared to talk for at least 30 minutes about all of the changes that AMG made to the E63 AMG to make it even more aggressive and exciting on the road. The wider fenders are impressive, the lower facia is artwork and the quad exhaust sounds great!

E63 in white

With all of the exterior upgrades I almost forgot to check out the interior! The AMG styling is present here as well with the sculpted seats, console gear selector and meticulously stitched dashboard.

I am so jealous of all of the people attending the AMG Driving Academy at Road Atlanta this weekend. I would love a little more seat time with this beauty!

Thanks to our AMG Expert John Sands for bringing this car by and I look forward to seeing you again soon for our CLA45 AMG training!
