“I mention this because when Evans was driving the M3, I simply walked away from him in the C63. I lost him four different times in my rearview mirror.”
“To put it in the very simplest of terms, Race mode works. Contrast this with the M3, where even if everything is flipped over to the most aggressive setting, it somehow doesn’t quite work. With the C63, Race mode turns the car from a big man in a fancy suit into a pissed-off pugilist with brass knuckles on each fist. Race mode just kind of solves everything.”
“I wish I had more room to tell you all how much better the AMG’s interior is than the other two.”
“The end of the story is that all four of us ranked the BMW in last place. The M3 is a fabulous sporting machine, but if you walk around a rifle range for years with a big target on your back, you eventually will get shot. “
Does the automotive press like the new Mercedes-AMG GT S? Ummm, yeah.
“It’s one of the best-handling cars I’ve ever driven. Certainly the best in the big, powerful bruiser category. Completely hooked up, without understeer. The car comes right into a corner, but the tail doesn’t come around. It’s just beautifully balanced all the time.”
“This thing is basically just the greatest car there is,” Lieberman said. “Too hyperbolic? Well, it’s certainly not as well-mannered as the Turbo S. And that’s a good thing. Philosophically speaking, a little bit of attitude, a bit of misbehaving, that’s kind of what we all prefer, right?”
“If you want thrills and excitement and entertainment, the GT S is your car. It does everything the 911 does but with just enough hints of danger to get your blood pumping. “It’ll kill momentum, jink, stick, and rocket away from bends like a Le Mans racer,” Martinez said. “If the GT S is indicative of a new era in AMG history, all others had better watch out.”
“Are you still grinning like an idiot three days later? If yes, well, special. Is the 2016 Mercedes-AMG GT S a special car? I’ll save you the suspense. Double hell yes it is!”
“But you don’t buy the AMG GT S for the numbers. You buy it because it eats up a road like nobody’s business.”
“I’ll end this one by stating the obvious. I’m totally smitten with the Mercedes-AMG GT S. It’s special. It checks all the boxes. It’s beautiful, it’s luxurious, and it runs down canyon roads like an axe murder on a parkour course, devouring everything in its path.”
For 2016 Mercedes-Benz will have two versions of the mid-sized SUV. The GLE-Class SUV and Coupe. Pictured above is the current ML-Class and the GLE-coupe. Similar size, but very different styling.
This is a mid-cycle refresh to the current M-Class. There are upgrades to the interior and exterior but it will be very recognizable as the traditional SUV. It will be available in many variants: GLE300d, GLE350, GLE400, GLE550e, GLE63 AMG
This is a whole new version of the mid-size SUV. This GLE had coupe-like lines, AMG styling and is meant to stand out. The GLE-Coupe will only be available as the GLE450 AMG Sport and the GLE63 AMG.
Does that help? There seems to be a lot of confusion about why we are turning our ML into a coupe! We aren’t…there are two!
The Mercedes-Benz International website is a great place to spend an afternoon!
They recently did a feature on AMG engine builder Michael Kubler, who I’ve always followed on Instagram.
Follow our friend and customer Ben on Facebook, Instagram and YouTube! Seach for Ben Wayne.
This C63 AMG is for sale and on the showroom floor!
Here it is! The 2016 Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class stopped by for a training class this week. It was my first opportunity to see the new coupe version of the soon to be refreshed M-Class (now GLE-Class).
I was not sure I was going to like this model as I DO NOT like similar SUV/Coupe models on the market now. However, now that I have seen it in person it is definitely growing on me! This car is bigger than the pictures make it seem. The rear end comes almost to my shoulder!
So, there you have it! have you been looking for a super powerful SUV? With coupe styling? And 22″ wheels? I’ll have it starting in August!
On my most recent European Delivery adventure I picked up a 2015 Mercedes-Benz S550 coupe. This vehicle is just one of a handful of vehicles (AMG and S-Class) that qualifies for a special Center of Excellence Delivery experience! The CoE is in the same building as the standard pick-up but offers a few extras…
First, your new car is unveiled to you by your personal guide in a secluded section of the building! This guide will spend as much time as you would like going over the features of the vehicle and helping you prepare for your trip. He helped us enter several navigation destinations, arrange the luggage and then personally pulled the vehicle outside for departure!
Second, amazing food! The Center of Excellence service a gorgeous four course lunch in one of the showrooms while you take in the beauty of the surrounding vehicles. There were several other couples and families taking delivery at the same time but it felt like we had the place to ourselves. They were also able to quickly provide a vegetarian option even though it was not on the menu.
Finally, because it is in the same building as the standard deliveries you can still take pictures with the giant star, take the factory tour and shop in the gift shop. It is special, but not entirely separate from the standard experience.
When arranging your European Delivery of an AMG or S-Class your salesperson must make a special request for the Center of Excellence. There are a limited number available each day so requesting early is important.
I can personally handle your European Delivery experience wherever you live in the country. Call me!
It’s here! The all-new 2015 C63 AMG has arrived at Atlanta Classic Cars. This stunner is an Edition1 version with special exterior flourishes and red accented interior. It sounds as good as it looks! More C63 AMGs are expected later this month. Are you ready?
The interior features red carbon fiber and red diamond stitching.
Of course the engine is hand built by one of the world famous AMG engine builders in Affalterbach!
And just for a little comparison I parked it next to a C400 to see how much more aggressive it looked. 100% more aggressive!
