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.

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.

The new Eleanor

I finally met Eleanor – my automotive unicorn. No, she isn’t a grey Mustang but, much like in the modern Gone in Sixty Seconds movie, this car has given me a proper runaround. With three cancelled bookings and a premature departure from my house, I now know that my Eleanor is a Mercedes-Benz CLS400.

The opulent opportunity

It’s not often that we get the opportunity to review two top models of a brand and the AMG versions of the Mercedes-Benz S-Class Coupé certainly qualify for this description.
