      We are all waiting on Mercedes to reveal the new ML but we received at least a piece of the puzzle today. Dutch auto spy photographers snapped some pics of an ML testing with an exposed rear. We now have an idea of what the rear lights and shape will look like. Looks pretty ordinary actually, restrained styling. ...

      Some will say this guy is a poser, and that may be warranted, but you have to respect the work that went into this recreation. Sure, this car won't have the power, motor, suspension, lightweight parts, brakes, and we could go on, but it looks strikingly similar to the real thing. The body conversion cost about $20,000. The video below depicts the conversion but the first half is just filler with pictures. Skip to the 3:37 mark to see the actual conversion process. ...

      The new ML is coming folks and with it a new ML AMG. In case you had any doubts about the motor being the M157 this motor should alleviate them as it does not sound like an M156 and instead more like a muffled V8, one likely being muffled by two turbos. The powertrain will no doubt mirror the other new 63 models but that is no surprise. What is a surprise is just how fast the new ML63 looks and how flat it corners. The performance SUV segment is heating up. ...

      Everyone knows the new Fast and Furious movie, Fast Five is coming. Based on a scene in the movie, Autotopias organized a competition based around having a getaway vehicle that would do well in a heist similar to what the actors in the movie needed to pull off. OE Tuning and Gintani participated (and did very well) using their C63 AMG and X5 M respectively. ...

      This is the 210 horsepower turbo 4 cylinder concept A-class, and we love it. The styling is aggressive and futuristic. The drivetrain choices are great with a turbo 4 and a dual clutch transmission. The thing looks like it should be much higher than just an entry level Mercedes. Will they actually build it? We don't doubt an A-class will come, but it should look exactly like this. ...

      The car here is a W203 C230 C-Class. The car has an M272 E25 (2.5 liter) V6 stock which puts out 201 horsepower. The motor isn't a powerhouse but OE Tuning extracted more power out of it with gains of just about 9 horsepower at the wheels and 10 pound-feet at the wheels on 91 octane pump. Check the graph and video below. ...

      Well, we knew sooner or later the E-class would get the new twin turbo M157 V8 motor. Seems Mercedes went with sooner as in the next few months the E63 will dropping the M156 naturally aspirated V8 for the twin turbo motor. The performance package will be available for the E63 as well boosting the turbo motor from 518 horsepower to around 550. ...

      There is classy modification and then there is... this. This "Mercedes" is for sale on Ebay apparentl, and we were just amazed that someone subjected this poor car to these tasteless modifications leading to a very confused vehicle. Audi style headlights? Lamborghini style doors? SLR style rims? A Ferrari license plate frame? It's painful to see. ...

      One of the largest auto blogs on the net, Jalopnik, has been monitoring our story with Evosport. Things have gotten very heated as of late when Evosport had their attorney, Todd Serota, threaten my father as well as myself with legal action. BenzBoost was given a deadline and told to pull down the articles, looks like we missed it. ...

      Here are the preliminary results for JRCART's CLK63 Black Series running the Weistec supercharger. The car has the Weistec race supercharger package which includes the Weistec heads, cams, and fuel system including larger injectors. The car ran 14.5 psi of boost on stock internals which is incredible really. That is a lot of boost for the stock internals to handle. The tires were slipping on the dyno due to the power which can be seen in the graph so these are just preliminary results. They will be trying again with new rubber in the next few days and likely hitting the 7XX whp range. ...

      Here is our take on the upcoming AMG SLK with the help of our graphic design artist Wild-Speed. We all know an AMG SLK is coming as it has been testing. What we do not know is what motor it will have as there have been many rumors ranging from the M157 twin turbo V8 to a special naturally aspirated 5.5 liter V8. We also don't know if it will have the SLK55 or SLK63 designation but we are leaning toward it keeping the SLK55 name at the moment. Enjoy the renderings! ...

      German tuner Wheelsandmore has tackled the new CLS63 AMG. We are a bit disappointed with their results though, only 580 horsepower? This doesn't even really improve much upon the performance pack offered for the M157 twin turbo V8 from Mercedes. The base car offers 518 horsepower and the Performance Package 549 so, kind of a weak showing from Wheelsandmore. ...
