Amherst, New Hampshire, United States
This is the one, what a dream boat! Beautiful and fast Mercedes 190e 2.3-16. 16 valve Mercedes Cosworth from 1986. I am the 3rd owner, have owned it for the past 12 years and it has only 55k original miles. I bought it from the 2nd owner in 2002 and drove it more often when I first bought it but now only drive it once a month on nice days. No winters, only the occasional sunny day. Garage kept. It was a third car so I just enjoyed it here and there. It's fast and runs like a top!
A little history about this car: It's a 1986 and was imported brand new to the US in December of 1985. My paperwork from the DOT says it arrived in the US on 12/28/85. I bought it from the 2nd owner. It was the wife's car, she was a stay at home mom, and didn't use it much. When I bought it, she had a baby's car seat in the back! It is European with the faster engine and it shows. It has more horsepower and it's a blast to drive. I have a ton of paperwork with it. Service records from the past 15 years for tune-ups, etc for around $6,000. A lot of service was done at Mercedes of White Plains in NY.
Condition: Great! I'd say it is an 8 out of 10. It's fast and runs like a top. It has a 5 speed transmission, the dogleg transmission. The exterior is probably an 8. It's all original paint, etc., but it has a couple chips and a couple scratches. There is no rust and the car is extremely good but not perfect. There are some buff swirls on the rear spoiler. The very bottom part of the side skirts have a couple spots where the black is worn off. That's about it. The wheels are mint, the spare wheel is mint. They are the original factory wide wheels. The tires only have a couple thousand miles and the spare tire has never been used. The interior is also about an 8. It is excellent but not perfect. The leather seats are extremely good but there are a couple of tiny wear spots, no rips or anything. One of the rear seat belt buckles is broken but works fine. The window molding on the back two doors are coming up a little. The display isn't working on the stop watch in the dash. That's about it. The rest is just about in excellent condition. I believe the A/C needs a freon charge. The radio and rear speakers were updated in the early 2000s but I have the original beckers radio if you want it. I forgot to picture it. All gauges work great. Dash is nice. It has an AMG steering wheel which was on it when it was imported to the US. It has the original manuals and tools. No leaks.
I bought the car because it was in excellent shape with very few miles. I did a carfax when I purchased it in 2002 and I still have it. It's clean with no issues. I can provide a copy if you email me. The car is extremely nice. I have the NY state title. I'm not a mechanic so I don't know all the technical stuff but please email me with questions and I'll try to answer them as best as I can. This is a beauty!!! And there is no reserve so the highest bid wins! The car is located in Amherst, NH. Feel free to email if you want to see it/test drive it.
Again, please email me with any questions. I'll try to answer them as best I can and can take more pictures upon request. Thank! I've never had it professionally waxed or detailed. I'm sure it would look fantastic if it was.
The vin is WDB2010341F175434. I posted pictures of the clean carfax. I also have a copy of the carfax from 2002.

Here's a chance to acquire a celebrity-owned vehicles, and this time at a discount instead of a premium. So the celebrity in this case is Consumer Reports, that magazine that could be equally adored and abhored by car enthusiasts. CR buys all of its test vehicles and usually finds willing second owners within its own ranks, but its opening its small used-car lot to the public. On the forecourt are four roadsters: an automatic 2012 Audi TT 2.0 TFSI Quattro S-Tronic with 6,600 miles for $36,500, a manual 2012 BMW Z4 sDrive28i with 8,400 miles for $45,000, a manual 2012 Mercedes-Benz SLK250 for $39,500 and a manual 2013 Porsche Boxster with 7,000 miles for $48,000.

Those numbers mean a savings of $9,000 to $10,000 before haggling - each car is listed with an "Asking price" so there could be some wiggle room if you show up with pockets full of dough and eyes full of serious intent. Since the money CR earns from the sales go back into the magazine's budget to buy more test cars, however, it probably won't take any oddball trades, so you can forget about getting any purchasing help from that track-day AMC Javelin project on blocks in the back yard.
The vehicles have been taken care of and spiffed up for sale; buyers will take delivery at the CR test track in East Haddam, Connecticut and get a tour of the facilities. While you're there they'll even take you on a lap around the track so you can feel how your car handles when driven by one of its testers. They will probably not help you with advice on which toaster and dehumidifier to buy - you'll still need to get a subscription for that. Have a look at the video below to see a day in the life of a CR test car.
We're still a couple of weeks away from the public debut of the new Mercedes S63 AMG Coupe at the fast-approaching New York Auto Show, but already we're receiving word of an even more powerful version in the works. That, of course, would be the S65 AMG Coupe - the twelve-cylinder version of the latest S-Class Coupe, two-door counterpart to the S65 AMG sedan and replacement for the outgoing CL65 AMG.

Like the four-door version rolled out back in November, the S65 AMG Coupe would be distinguished from less powerful vehicles (which, lets face it, is just about everything) principally by its engine: a massive, 6.0-liter twin-turbo V12 that produces 621 horsepower, 738 pound-feet of torque and cares as much about global warming as an oil-shipping mega-tanker.
Because Merc's 4Matic all-wheel drive system can't handle that much torque, the ne plus ultra coupe would (like the S65 sedan but unlike the S63 coupe) be offered only in rear-drive form. That means it will have that much more trouble getting the power down to the road, but since the Magic Body Control suspension is similarly incompatible with 4Matic, the flagship coupe will get that trick suspension.
Another month, another car pack for Forza Horizon. This time it's the Recaro Car Pack featuring a motley gang of cars and trucks: the 1983 GMC Vandura G-1500, 1995 Ford Mustang Cobra R, 2012 Cadillac Escalade ESV, 2005 Mercedes-Benz SLR, 2012 Lexus LFA Nürburgring Edition and 2012 Lotus Exige S.
It'll be up for download on Xbox Live on Tuesday, Jan. 1, 2013 for 400 MS Points. As usual, if you have the Forza Horizon Season Pass you can get them all free, and Season Pass holders will also get a bonus car that's not pictured: the 2009 Pagani Zonda Cinque Roadster.
The Pagani is everything opposite to that Vandura, but while you might not ever win anything with the van, you can always use the back of it as a place to give out free hugs. Check out the video and press release below for more details.
