‘n Dag vol adrenalien

The fishtailing monster
Today I am writing to you from a secluded mountain cabin, mostly to avoid anyone bringing me another highly-strung, low-slung, high-power, low-profile tarmac monster. You see, I’ve just had a string of test cars which would fit perfectly into a top-trumps card pack – spearheaded by this Mercedes-AMG C63S Coupé.
Die stilte van die nag word versteur
Ons het onlangs weer die Mercedes-Benz AMG E43 4 Matic getoets. Dié keer met 18 000 km op die spoedmeter. Aansienlik meer as toe ons die eerste toets gedoen het. Die vraag is dan: “Hoe het die AMG E43 verouder en is dit ‘n voertuig om elke dag mee te leef?”
The absurd nerves
Beginning of this week I picked up my new driver’s license; well, the umpteenth re-issue of a document which is almost 25 years old and in severe danger of being taken away. Forever. You see, I’ve been driving the new Mercedes-AMG E63 S 4Matic+ and it’s completely and utterly insane.
One hot new car, lots of details in short paragraphs.
What you need to know: Mercedes-Benz appears to be bored or smoking something. What was once a respected maker of dreary sofas on wheels has become a bunch of swivel-eyed scientists producing fashionable street racers. They also made merry with their badges, none of which describe what’s left in the tin.
The almighty acceleration
The name Mercedes-Benz has always stood for luxurious automobiles and within their own pecking order, the letters “SL” tend to crown most price lists. Although slightly removed from the original abbreviation (Sporty and Light), there are few cars on the market with an illustrious heritage like the Mercedes SL.
The satin sledgehammers
A recent purchase by one of our staff members has spurred us on to finally delve into the history of certain performance cars. But don’t worry – we shall use this opportunity to cover other brands, genres and eras as well. In fact, why don’t you drop us a line and tell us which car’s history you’d like to see?
