There are cars with lots of history, there are cars with a few generations of ancestors, and then there’s the Mercedes-Benz SL. The drop-top from Stuttgart with “Sport Leicht” on its rump can trace its ancestry back further than most modern automobiles.
Boere Rolls Royce? ‘n Mercedes bly ‘n Mercedes!
Ten spyte van al die nuutste tegnologie en hoë-verrigting modelle van ander Duitse vervaardigers bly die driepuntige ster op die sierrooster steeds dié simbool wat getuig van vakmanskap, tydlose styl en goeie, gesofistikeerde smaak!
A Diesel cabrio?
For today’s review I could tell you all sorts of things which nobody cares about. Horsepower, airbag count, none of these matters. Perhaps they would for another vehicle but not the new Mercedes-Benz C-Class Cabriolet. All you need to hear – because you already know it – is how achingly pretty it is.
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?
The enormous pick
Do you enjoy things on a large scale, like a house which can easily be converted to a hotel? You know, with guest toilets that could house a double bed.

Mercedes-Benz het toevallig die legendariese Unimog begin bou…
Dit was die grensoorlog wat die Unimog, of sommer net “Mog” in troepetaal, ‘n plaaslike legende gemaak het. Op 7 Oktober 2016 het Mercedes-Benz wêreldwyd die sewentigste verjaardag van hierdie baie unieke nutsvoertuig gevier en talle pers-verklarings uitgereik om die Mog se ontwikkeling en sy geskiedenis bekend te stel.
So here’s something different. Each year we list our favourite new cars which were launched over the last 12 months but this time around, instead of us telling you which ones we liked, our Facebook page invited YOU to vote your favourite new ride of 2016.
The list of candidates was chosen from the launches we attended or vehicles we thought were brilliant newcomers and worthy of being included in this line-up.
I’m partial to Mercedes-Benz E-Classes, I have to admit that upfront. In fact, I’m privileged to own a ’99-model E430. Consequently, I’m either about to give the latest E-Class a very biased review, or I’m very well positioned to give my opinion on Merc’s latest release. You may choose.
