SNEAK PEEK – MERCEDES GULLWING

Friday, March 6th, 2009




Not content to sit on the sidelines while the world watches Ferrari, RUF, and others debut their new supercars, Mercedes-Benz release a full, 35 picture gallery of hi-res “spy” photos of their upcoming SLC/SLS “gullwing” supercar. The SLR McLaren successor promises to be just as fast as the outgoing SLR, addressing that car’s weight issues and being more “true” to Mercedes’ heritage.

RENNTECH will have tuning upgrades available at the time of launch. Contact RENNTECH for more information.

John Neff writes: We’ve seen so many spy shots of the upcoming 2010 Mercedes-Benz E-Class that these official images hardly move us. Yet here they are, (grainy) images leaked onto the web that reportedly reveal the final production form of the 2010 E-Class, which makes its official debut in January.

German car magazine Autozeitung is claiming to have the first official photo of the next-generation Mercedes E-Class in its latest September issue. According to Autozeitung, the above image has not been digitally enhanced in any way – and until someone provides substantial proof otherwise, we have no reason to doubt them.

MB’s E63 AMG is still under development according to these latest spy shots taken by WCF’s photographers at the Nurburgring. It still carries a good bit of camo, but there won’t be many surprises in the styling department after Mercedes’ Concept FASCINATION reveal (covered HERE).

We’ll have to wait and see what changes AMG have made to the E’s running gear.

Spy pics of the upcoming Mercedes-Benz Gullwing continue to make their way onto the interweb, with a number of shots being published yesterday from the increasingly famous Nurburgring.

Despite the heavy masking, a few new details seem evident in this latest crop of photos (retro grille, the rear wing will probably be an active air-brake, like on the SLR, rear exhausts, etc.), but we’ll have to wait and see how many of these “details” are just illusions and camouflage.

SEMA PREVIEW : PART 1

Saturday, September 6th, 2008




Last week, Modified Luxury and Exotics posted some of the concept art for our 2008 SEMA build. ML&E didn’t post many details (and I won’t be posting many here, either!) but I will say that these were early renderings, and don’t do the final design any real justice.

That’s all I can say for now – check in often for more updates as we get closer to the SEMA reveal.

SLC CAUGHT STATESIDE

While this test mule is under some unique, hard-sided camouflage, it is obvious what we were looking at: the successor to the current Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren. But this one will be an in-house affair with AMG being the main development partner. Even with the camouflage, this looks like it’s going 200 MPH standing still!

The Mercedes S Class has only been on the market for a short while but with rivals such as the BMW 7-series and Audi A8, the German manufacturer cannot afford to be complacent. Ahead of its launch, WCF’s spies caught a prototype almost totally free of disguise.
