Mercedes Teases Maybach Show Car Bound for Pebble Beach

  Mercedes Teases Maybach Show Car Bound for Pebble Beach <p>A follow-up to last year’s stunner</p>In the video below, Mercedes previews an ultra-luxury car that is clearly similar to the Vision 6 from last year. The teaser emphasizes the model's long hood and large wheels, which look a bit more realistic than the ones on the Vision 6. The interior has also been toned down slightly from renderings we saw of the previous model's interior, although the minimalist dashboard looks familiar as do the white seats and circular instruments near the steering wheel.

Being a professional racing driver with Mercedes does have its perks. Maro Engel has spent most of his career thrashing Mercedes - AMG GT cars around the world’s greatest circuits. For 2017 he returned to Germany’s DTM touring car series with Mercedes

The race was interrupted by two safety car deployments right at the start. Robert Wickens (SILBERPFEIL Energy Mercedes - AMG C 63 DTM ) and Gary Paffett (EURONICS Mercedes - AMG C 63 DTM ) both retired following contacts with other vehicles.

Maro Engel has spent most of his career thrashing Mercedes-AMG GT cars around the world’s greatest circuits. For 2017 he returned to Germany’s DTM touring car series with Mercedes, but this year is extra special because he also got married. Ordinarily, the special drive after the ceremony would be in a posh limo, or perhaps a convertible so everyone can see husband and wife on their special day. Things are apparently a bit different, however, when you’re a professional racing driver for a major manufacturer.

“It was an absolutely amazing, incredible experience,” Engel said in an interview with Daimler. Keep in mind – he wasn’t talking about the wedding here, but rather the after-ceremony drive in a Mercedes-AMG C 63 DTM car loaned to the couple for their special day.

  2018 Mercedes-Benz S-Class Coupe and Convertible Roll Out with Upgraded Powertrains <p>Freshened big-body two-doors set for 2017 Frankfurt show debut</p>Both two-doors will be available in three flavors: S560, S63, and S65, with the latter two obviously being AMG models. The S560 replaces the S550 in the lineup and uses a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V-8 instead of the previous 4.7-liter. Despite the reduction in displacement, power increases by 14 hp to 463, while torque is unchanged at 516 lb-ft. Distribution duties remain assigned to a nine-speed automatic, which is mated to Benz's 4MATIC all-wheel drive system in the coupe, but sends power only to the rear wheels in the convertible.

“When the team offered it to us, we were blown away and thought about how best to manage the half-hour drive,” he said. “It was a crazy feeling, driving off from the church in the Mercedes-AMG C 63 DTM together with my wife, along the narrow road through the small fishing village and out onto the coast road.”

At this point, we suspect there are more than a few people wondering how the blushing bride felt about this? According to Engel, he discussed it with her when the team made the offer, and she was all for it.

“She thought the idea was tremendous,” he said. “We lined the seats of the car with large, white tablecloths, and she managed to get in okay with a little bit of help from me.”

As far as wedding cars go, we can’t think of something much cooler than that. And as for the bride being cool with it all, she’s definitely a keeper.

From everyone at Motor1, congratulations to Maro and Steffi Engel. We wish you many years of happiness. It looks like you're off to a great start.

If You Can't Beat ’Em, Buy ’Em: The Raciest Version of Mercedes’ AMG GT R Wears Corvette Tires .

That it rode on what appeared to be Corvette tires—including the TPC Spec number molded into their sidewalls, which indicates compliance with General Motors’ internal Test Performance Criteria requirements—was a head scratcher. It turns out that these are both Corvette tires and a factory fitment for AMG's sharpest GT scalpel. Allow us to explain.
