 1973 Mercedes 450 SLC, I was told this is rare being stonepine green metallic and the nutmeg color interior. I don't know, but I've never seen another. This color combo with the factory wire wheels makes this car really stand out from your standard silver or gold cars that everyone else has. This has been an Oregon car all its life, so it is mostly rust free, but has a few little spots. You can see the back of the trunk has some bubbles in the paint, I'm not sure why as the inside of the trunk shows no signs of rust at all. The only other spot is under the rear window rubber seal, I don't actually know that it is rusty, but it feels bumpy so I will assume it is, so you have no unknown surprises.

This car runs down the road as it should, it doesn't have tire smoking power from a stop but you could cruise down the highway at 100 all day long. It runs good, I drive it nearly every day. It has a few flaws that I will point out, so again you have no surprises.

The tach doesn't always work, if it works when you start the car it never stops working while driving. I never looked into what the problem may be.

The belt that runs the A/C is off the car, the compressor spins free, but it hasn't had a belt on it since I've owned it. I couldn't tell you why it's off or if the system works or not.

The front seats look like a big butt has smashed them down, they are still comfy to sit in and drive, but for me this was the biggest issue, I think they just look ugly and need redone.

The tires have lots of tread, but the tires are older? weatherchecked looking, fine for around town, but if you want to drive this car home across the country, it would be a safe bet to replace them first.

The paint on the roof and trunk is faded, I would call it hazey looking, it is a repaint from who knows how long ago, it is basecoat and clear on top. A pro might be able to bring it back to life. It still looks good going 100.

The pros with this car...

It's a Mercedes, it is safe, it is fast, and I'm going to sell it cheap!

I think it has some rare options, it has rear armrests, rear fold down center, spectacular color in and out, factory wire wheels!

2014 Mercedes-Benz S-Class interior caught in spy shots

Tue, 29 Jan 2013

With the redesigned 2014 Mercedes-Benz S-Class getting closer to production, the camera-wielding crew over at Autospies somehow managed to get inside of the car to snap some detailed spy shots. As the prototypes continue to shed camouflage, it would appear that Mercedes-Benz is getting closer to unveiling the car, and with the Geneva and New York auto shows coming up, it could be sooner rather than later.
From what we can see of this car's interior, the overall look of the S-Class' cabin isn't a ground-breaking departure from the current car, but it has been completely redesigned with more advanced technology. The styling is now even more upscale with larger swaths of wood, more shapely door panels (without the built-in armrest cubbies) and the concept-like two-spoke steering wheel. The highlight of this car though is probably the two massive digital screens with one being used for driver information and the other used for navigation, audio and infotainment systems. One other detail we noticed about this car is that it was equipped with the new 360-degree camera that debuted on the new GL-Class and will also be used on the 2014 E-Class. We also know that the next-gen S-Class will be getting the new cloud-based MBrace2 infotainment system.
As for the exterior design, it looks like the next S-Class will carry a similar profile as the current car, but we can see through the camouflage that the new styling will fit in better with current Mercedes-Benz products. Up front, the grille is much larger is flanked by aggressive LED-trimmed headlights, while the rear view of the car shows us the LED brake light now at the top of the rear window, a more pointed trunk opening and a more squared-off rear fascia with exhaust outlets pushed to the corners.

Brabus 800 Roadster is a power-mad aristocrat

Wed, 06 Mar 2013

If we're being completely honest, we haven't exactly been in love with the aesthetics of the sixth-generation Mercedes-Benz SL-Class. It's mostly a front-end issue, with its glowering eagle-eye headlamps and upright, dinner-plate-sized Three-Pointed Star coming across to us as overwrought. That's particularly troublesome for a roadster whose history has of the most elegant designs of all time in its back catalog. Somehow, the new R231 generation's brash visuals seem more at home on this Brabus 800 Roadster to us.
That's probably because the high-dollar German tuner has turned up the wick on the SL's visuals even further, with carbon fiber bodywork, a more aggressive aero kit, matte hood scoop and complex two-finish wheels. It's all-the-way committed to its brashness, in other words - and justifiably so. Anything with 800 horsepower and 1,047 pound-feet of torque has earned the right to look however it wants, right?
Brabus started with the SL65 and its not-exactly-underpowered 6.0-liter twin-turbo V12, and went to town, fitting their own turbocharger and intercooler system, along with a less-restrictive exhaust system with driver-selectable sound levels and new engine electronics. The result is a 3.7-second 0-62 mph time, an electronically limited top whack of 217 mph... and one seriously compromised toupée.

How could a lifted Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG be more awesome? Add an axle

Fri, 01 Mar 2013

We are fully confident in saying that this will be the most amazing thing you see all day. First of all, it's a Mercedes-Benz G-Wagen - in AMG spec, no less. And it's being shown off in high-definition video glory, blasting through the desert, jumping over sand dunes, and generally being awesome. But here's the kicker: It has six wheels. Three axles. And they're all driven. Holy $%!#.
Under the hood is AMG's usual 5.5-liter twin-turbocharged V8, and total output is rated at 536 horsepower and 560 pound-feet of torque. That's impressive and all, but do keep in mind that the G63 6x6 weighs in at 8,322 pounds or, you know, the weight of two E-Class sedans. Combine that with its 18 inches of ground clearance, 37-inch tires and five locking differentials and you've got a vehicle capable of, well, everything you've ever imagined or will ever imagine for the rest of your life.
But the goodness doesn't stop once you open the doors. Oh, no. This thing is fit for a king - or a sheik, more appropriately - with ultimately luxurious seating for four. The rear bench seat has been removed in favor of two bucket seats with a fixed console in the middle, and the rear seats have been moved back beyond the usual B pillar to allow for more legroom.
