  1. AMG cars are always special and the Mercedes SLK 55 AMG is no exception. The underlying formula is quite simple - take a regular car and stuff massive power into it - 421 horses in this case. It is a recipe guaranteed to excite. Read Full Review
  2. Mercedes launched the new E63 ////AMG in India at Rs. 1.29 crore Ex Delhi. This has come shortly after the facelift E Class launch. The car was launched at the Buddh International Circuit. As part of the event we were given the chance to drive the E63 on the track. Quite exciting this since I have driven lots of sports cars and exotics but never on a track so was worth looking forward to. I arrived at Buddh around noon and immediately registered myself for the event. Being in the pit lane of an F1 circuit is an awesome experience. Seeing the huge Grandstand in front of you seems just out of this world. Looked around and saw the meat that was waiting for us. There were 4 E63s at our disposal along with 2 SLS AMGs which were the pace cars .The new E63 comes with a 5.5 litre Bi Turbo V8 motor putting out 557 horses @5500rpm. Torque is a crazy 720 Nm @ 5200rpm. 0 to 100 kph is finished off in 4.2 seconds while top speed is restricted 250 kph. It comes with a AMG Speedshift 7G-Tronic gearbox. Well finally it was my turn to take to the wheel. And surprise surprise the heavens decided to add a fun quotient and it started raining. So my first ever track day was going to be a wet one. Strapped myself into the car and wore my helmet. Our cars were equipped with walkie talkies to follow instructions from our German instructors who who be leading in the SLS. We started off slowly trying to get to know the track first time around. It was a fantastic experience to get to know the technique to take corners all around. However it was flat out acceleration and I touched 220 kph on the back straight. The key is to brake hard when approaching a corner. You literally slam the brakes and then turn in. I chose to drive in the Sport Plus with Automatic mode. The growl coming from the V8 is insane and you can imagine how it sounded with so many of these musical instruments playing at the same time. I got done with my laps and was lead back into the pit lane. I must admit that I didnt want to stop but there were other waiting for their turn as well. Our German instructor came upto me after the drive and appreciated my driving skills saying that I had great control on the corners and took all the correct lines. It was nice to hear these words considering it was my track debut. Well thats how my day turned out to be. Immensely exciting and fun and I cant wait to do something like this again. Left Buddh with a smile headed to the airport and back home. The first experience is always one to remember and this is no different. I would definitely recommend everyone to go for the open track days that are organized at BIC. Enjoy the pictures

  6. First ever undisguised picture of the new facelifted Mercedes E-Class saloon. Mind you, this is not just a facelift, lots of new styling touches can be seen too! This one looks like the hotter AMG version >> E-Class non-AMG rendering by Autocar India >> E-Class rendering by TopSpeed>> Mercedes’ current E-class (W212) is now four years old. Launched in 2009, both internationally and in India, it is soon set to receive a mid-life update. Mercedes normally gives its models a fairly substantial facelift halfway through their life cycle, and all-new engines are also introduced by the German company at the same time. One of the major styling updates will be the return to two headlights instead of the current four. There will also be a new front bumper, grille and bonnet, which will mean the new E will look quite different from the current car. Other substantial changes include rear door skins, wings and tail-lamps. The new E-class retains the basic interior architecture of the current car, while efforts have been made to improve quality. Even higher-grade materials, more supportive seats, new instrument graphics and switchgear, and an improved multimedia system have all been adopted.

  7. Mercedes’ new baby-CLS, which will could be called the CLA, has been for the first time caught completely undisguised. This new car is based on the Mercedes Concept Style Coupe (CSC) which was unveiled earlier this year at the Beijing motor show; it is tipped to go into production in 2013. It evolves the look of the F800 concept from 2010, which has led the way for Mercedes' latest design direction. The new CLA uses Mercedes' new MFA platform and has been seen so far on the A-class and B-class. Also planned to come off this platform is a small SUV called GLC, and a shooting brake version of the CLA. Power is said to come from the same turbocharged 2.0-litre petrol engine that appeared in the new A-Class at the Geneva motor show in March. It produces 208bhp.
