Say welcome to the cabrio version of the 2015 AMG GT. This gorgeous C model has a wider rear track to control a 4.0-litre V8 engine with 547hp. What a car! My birthday will be soon, don’t forget it 😉

More and more we are seeing active aerodynamic on nowadays cars. Elements that constantly adjust to get more speed, or in this case, to improve efficiency. This “wow” concept, transforms into aero mode when you get more than 50 miles per hour. The rear of the concept stretches over 15 inches to guide air down the tail. Flaps in the bumpers also extend outward, and the wheels adjust to improve the flow around the sides. To trim things out underneath, a portion inside the front bumper moves, as well.
So you get to an incredible low drag coefficent of 0.19! Add a plug-in hybrid engine and you get great efficiency.

I thought the videogames would be the only place where you can admire and/or drive classic cars. You know, sometimes it’s becoming hard to find good pics of some classic cars.
But now, videogames not only store the past of motor industry, they are also creating the future. One of the most important car’s videogame ever created, Gran Turismo, thru its creator Kazunori Yamauchi’s, ask manufacturers to build concept cars for his game version 6. Results are so interesting because brands can imagine new car designs being free of restrictions or limitations.
A lot of brands has created a virtual concept or even a real one.

It’s the second car entirely developed by AMG, the first was the gorgeous 2009 SLS.
The SLS was a really nice and special car, with gullwings doors, this GT it’s the little brother.
This car will fight in size, power and price against the mytical Porsche 911, with a biturbo 4-litre V8’s in a front-mid position.

The C111 was a series of experimental automobiles produced by Mercedes-Benz in 60’s and 70’s. The design of this series II it’s surprising coming from the german manufacterer. They were experimenting with Wankel engines (like Mazda RX7), 350hp on 600cc! But a lot of pollutant emissions and high fuel consumption. So this kind of motors were canceled and subsequent versions of the C111 were powered by a diesel engine.
Anyway, a nice car, a special design… a car that deserves to be visited on Mercedes Museum. Enjoy the pics of C111-series and also, the three series together on some pics.

Baroness Josephine von Krieger purchased this car as a graduation gift for his son. This car crisscrossed countries and continents to flee the horrors of WWII, to finally was found in a Connecticut garage in 1989.
A lot of history for this one of 26 540K Special Roadsters built, no doubt, one of the most gorgeous Mercedes that have been built.

A really gorgeous car, the first one after merger between Daimler and Benz. One of the engineering talents that participated on the design of the engine was Dr. Ferdinand Porsche. This was an automobile that forever established Mercedes-Benz as a high performance luxury automobiles brand.
