      USA Today has revealed a sneak peak of the Mercedes A-Class. If this is in fact the actual design, it is very aggressive and modern for what is an entry level Mercedes. The "Concept A" as this is referred to, will be unveiled at the Shanghai auto show. It features the new turbocharged Mercedes 4 cylinder as well as a dual clutch transmission. It also seems this car will make it to the U.S. and we hope not much changes from this concept. ...

      This is a great race to see, BimmerBoost and BenzBoost members DD GT3 RD and DLSJ5 racing their C63 P31 and M3 DCT respectively. The C63 P31 is stock and the DCT M3 has a catless X-pipe and Borla mufflers. The C63 with the P31 package is the decisively faster and for the M3 to win it would definitely take a tune. Check out the video below. ...

      We have been sitting on this story for some time but enough is enough, something has to be said. We can not sit idly by while Evosport continues to take money from our users and not deliver parts. BenzBoost user JRCART is the latest person who Evosport has taken thousands from, in his case under the guise of delivering a Weistec supercharger for his CLK63 black series. We wish we could say he is the only person who has spent considerable money with Evosport only to not get what he paid for, but he isn't. ...

      Supporting information continues to trickle in about the Renntech record breaking 1/4 mile run. A video of the run was recently posted and you can watch this below. What we know thus far is that it is likely on upgraded turbos and no nitrous was used in the run. This is the mod list we know of: drag radials, higher stall torque converter, limited slip diff, custom exhaust, modified intercooler, carbon ceramic brakes, and race gas only tune. Density altitude for the run was around 1500, very impressive. ...

      These records are falling left and right. It is quite surprising that literally days after MHP and Dads63 set the new overall Mercedes record that Renntech has surpassed it. We do not have the full details yet but are informing you of what we know. The car is a CL65 and we strongly suspect it is running some sort of modified/aftermarket turbos. With a 137 it exceeds what all other 65's on stock turbos have done so no evidence suggests this is not an OEM set. We will bring you more as we find out more. ...

      Spy photos of the next generation SLK55 have been making their way around the web. What caught our attention is that the photographers have been reported the motor the motor sounded like the twin turbo M157 V8. What does this mean? Well, it means the next generation AMG SLK may be ridiculously potent and an SL AMG usurper. Will Mercedes go this far to produce a 500+ horsepower SLK? We hope so. ...

      Wimmer Racing has released an upgrade package for the C63 which takes the M156 V8 to 601 horsepower. They achieve this figure through a head and cam package. In addition, they modify the headers, intake, and the rest of the exhaust along with a tune. This is a pretty expensive package and there are no dynos or performance numbers to support the claims. ...

      Gold rims are a hate it or love it proposition. Few cars can pull them off but the SLS would be one of them, especially a black SLS. These 3 piece forged rims come in a 9.5 x 20 inch front wheel and an 11 x 21 inch rear wheel. Tires are 275/30/20 and 295/25/21. No word on the wheel weight. ...

      The Japanese tuner Wald International has released their preview for their C218 CLS body kit. In typical Wald fashion, the kit is a bit overdone. We just can not get into the look of the front fenders. The side skirts and front bumper look pretty good but with what we have seen from Wald lately we expect the rear to be pretty overdone. European tuners just seem to have a more refined approach to body kits for German cars in comparison. ...

      German tuner Vath set their sites on a the CL550 and in the process designed an upgraded camshaft package and tune for the M273 V8. Stock power is 388 horsepower but Vath increases output by 72 horses with aftermarket cams, sport cats, and a tune. That gets the car close to a stock M156 so those who did not opt for the say the CL63, ML63, or SL63 AMG have a nice upgrade naturally aspirated upgrade path if they desire. ...

Motor is reported to be the M157 twin turbo V8 putting out 544 horsepower. An optional performance package will bump it up to to around 571 horsepower and 664 pound-feet of torque. Are the X5/X6 M and the Cayenne Turbo in trouble? Maybe, Mercedes does not seem to be pulling punches. ...

      The video just went up of the record setting Mercedes 1/4 mile run by DadsC63. Car has MHP mods along with a 125 shot of nitrous.

This is officially the quickest and fastest Mercedes in the USA. Congratulations to MHP and DadsC63.
