The 2024 Mercedes-Benz E-Class not only has a more powerful onboard computer, but also a new MBUX Superscreen on top of the dashboard as well as a selfie / video camera. This means when the vehicle is stationary you can use the MBUX Superscreen for online video conferences or just to take selfies and watch videos on TikTok.
If nothing else, the 2023 Mercedes-Benz eSprinter is the company’s most efficient electric van yet, unlike the Adria Supersonic. Power comes from either a 100 kW (134 hp) or 150 kW (201 hp) electric motor setup connected to a lithium-iron phosphate battery that sends power to the rear wheels.
Custom Mercedes-Benz Sprinter camper vans are nothing new, but how many have you seen with a large bathroom that rivals those found in some homes? Van Life Builds has built just that for their latest project. This miniature home on wheels had to make some sacrifices to fit in such a large bathroom, including fitting a double bed right behind the cab that doubles as a lounge area.
One Mercedes-Benz G-Class owner spent $146,000 USD transforming his off-road machine into a snow track-equipped vehicle worthy of a Swiss Alps adventure. To make it happen, he partnered with Delta 4×4 to add a set of Mattracks in place of each wheel that mount onto the hub, while the linkage to the buckets boasts an articulated mechanism enabling the tracks to move.
It’s official, the Mercedes-AMG ONE is now the fastest production vehicle to lap Nurburgring Nordschleife with a time of 6:35.183 beating out the previous record holder, a Porsche 911 GT2 RS Manthey (6:43.300).

Limited to 10-units worldwide, the BRABUS P 900 Rocket Edition turns the Mercedes-AMG G63 into a 900 hp and 77b lb-ft of torque pickup truck, powered by a twin-turbocharged V8 engine, mated to a 9-speed automatic transmission. Even though it weighs in at 5,997-pounds, it can accelerate from 0-62 mph in just 3.7-seconds, while topping out at an electronically limited 174 mph.
Similar to the Hyundai Prophecy Concept, the Mercedes-Benz F200 concept car from 1996 also has joystick controls instead of a normal steering wheel. This just proves that the latter was far ahead of its time, especially after making its public debut at the 1999 Paris Motor Show. Nicknamed ‘Imagination’, the body itself was based partially on the S-Class of that time, while also previewing the CL-Class coupe that debuted in 1999.
The world’s first and only 2017 Mercedes-Benz G550 6-wheeler SUV could be yours for the right price, as it’s currently up for auction on Doug DeMuro’s Cars & Bids.

Watch out Porsche Taycan, the Mercedes Vision AMG is coming by 2025.

The company redefined the automotive engineering rule book by building a software-driven electric car that re-imagines the road trip for the electric era.
