A midlife update brings a new nine-speed transmission and a plethora of driver modes to the Mercedes-AMG C63 S.

Mercedes-AMG E53 Review

  The E53 is effectively half-a-hybrid, packing an electric motor without the extra mass of a lithium-ion battery pack. In sedan, coupe or convertible guise, the motor augments initial acceleration until the six-cylinder engine has reached boost. The motor also powers the 48V electrical sub-system — there’s still a regular 12V wiring loom — and contributes to one of the most impressive take-offs you can hope for.   The E53’s engine is something of an engineering masterpiece. It’s a 3.0-litre ...

Mercedes-Benz says AMG X-Class is unlikely

The just-revealed X-Class will already be the most powerful pick-up available when it lands in Australian showrooms in 2018, thanks to the 190kW/550Nm turbo-diesel V6. But it has some of us Aussies wondering why this power horse won’t be available as V8 petrol, given our love of power? Speaking at the reveal of the X-Class in South Africa this week, Mr Mornhinweg shot down the idea of shoehorning AMG's venerable 4.0-litre bi-turbo V8 petrol engine under the bonnet of the X-Class. "I ...
