Mercedes CLA 45 AMG – Dropping Some Camo

Mercedes CLA 45 AMG -Spyshots
Here are the latest spyshots of the Mercedes CLA 45 AMG prowling around the streets of the Eifel in Germany, after it left AMG test center close to the Nurburgring.

The CLA 45 AMG will be powered by the same 2.0 liter four-cylinder turbocharged engine as the A45 AMG which has an impressive 175hp per liter giving the car a jawdropping 350hp.

And just like in the A45 AMG, the CLA 45 AMG will also get four-wheel-drive mated to the usual seven-speed twin-clutch transmission.

On the photos we can see that the prototype has a deep front spoiler to feed the induction system along with a wider track, the massive brakes, chunky side sills and a spoiler on the trunk which is hidden under the camouflage.

Mercedes AMG SLS Black Series (On Fire!!)

AMG SLS Black-Series Fire
Here are the latest spyshot’s of the upcoming flagship version of the SLS dubbed the unmistakable AMG SLS Black-Series.

The Black Series has been spotted several times. But today we got it with the front totally without cammo and sporting a very large fixed wing.

And only the day after the new family of the AMG Black Series, caught fire on the Nordschleife while testing.

Initial reports this was simply an engine fire but after completing nearly a full lap, It looks like this could be from the rear brakes.

The driver escaped without any injuries,but the prototype has died a warriors death and gone up in flames.

The wide arches which are shrouding the tyres have more aggressive nature, and housing larger tyres than the standard SLS, rumored with a weight reduction of around 45 kg, and rumor has it that this will only be available as the gullwing.

The huge scoops on the front hint of the use of forced induction but this is unlikely the case, as the naturally aspirated 6.2 liter v-8 is hinted to have a few more tricks up its elongated sleeve and perhaps will be an engineered increased capacity of 6.4 along with improvements in weight and updated gearbox it is likely to exceed 600hp.

2014 Mercedes C-Class Spied
The new Mercedes-Benz C-Class, which is due to arrive in 2014, looks set to be so stunningly attractive that motorists may go weak at the knees and pass out.

Here is the new Mercedes-Benz C-Class, which is due to be revealed at the 2013 Frankfurt IAA.

The design cues will be an evolution of the newly released A-Class, and is going to be based on the Benz F800 style concept which is indeed a beautifull looking vehicle.

The 2014 C-Class will measure slightly over 4.5 meters in length. It will be launched with a wide range of direct injection engines along with a future bi-turbo AMG Variant.

Mercedes CLA 45 AMG first Spy photos

CLA AMG SpyShots
Before you think that this is just another set of photos showing the new Mercedes CLA 4-door coupe look again, and look closely:
This is not the everyday CLA, this is the CLA 45 AMG caught on photos for the very first time.

The CLA 45 AMG will be powered by the same 2.0 liter four-cylinder turbo, 325 horsepower strong, that we will find first in the A45 AMG. And just like in the A45 AMG, the CLA 45 AMG will also get four-wheel-drive from the Swedish company Haldex to make sure the power doesn’t just make your tires smoke.

Mercedes SLS Black Series – Winter Spyshots

Here are the latest photos showing the Mercedes AMG SLS Black Series during cold weather testing in the artic circle.

The car is a direct replacement for the SL65 AMG Black Series from 2008 and we expect it to be as insanely dangerous in this form.

It will be badged as the SLS AMG Black Series and is expected to output around 690 ponies, This is where information is vague as engineering the current 6.2-liter V-8 up is one possibility but unlikely, The other is introducing the new 5.5-liter twin-turbo V-8. From the large air intakes on the front of this prototype it could be feeding the Twin intercoolers required for the forced induction.

Also the detailing is showing a wider track along with the usual Black Series aggressive arches along with clever use of composites to reduce weight, we also expect numerous chassis and brake modifications to mate to the increase in power and torque.

This car is still in Prototype mule form from the current SLS and is likely to have another 2-3 months to go before the production prototype will be spotted probably at the Nurburgring in early may.

2014 Mercedes Benz C Class Spyshots

The 2014 Mercedes C-Class (internally called BR205) has been spotted during its first winter testing and we can show you the clearest photos yet.

As we can see, the prototype is wearing heavy camouflage which makes it really hard to see any lines of the new design but at least the roof line is clearly visible. If we try to look beyond the camouflage at the front we expect there will be some influences taken from the F800 Concept Car shown in Geneva 2 years ago with a more marked front grille. Since the C-Class is the most important car for Mercedes they will not experiment too much with the design, but it still needs to look dynamic and sporty to give both the Audi A4 and the 3-Series from BMW a match.

The new C-Class will not only be offered with various petrol and diesel engines but there will also be a hybrid variant for the first time.

First out in 2014 is the sedan, followed by the wagon six months later. About one year after that we will see a coupe and convertible version as well.

And this time the C-Class will be produced in the US as well, the Alabama plant will build the C-Class alongside the GL and M-Class.

Mercedes CLS Shooting Brake – Winter Spyshots

Here are the latest spyshots of the upcoming CLS Shootingbrake which will be inveiled at this years Geneva Motorshow.

Powering the Mercedes CLS will be a combination of both Diesel and Petrol engines same as the official CLS, the BlueEfficiency models will have impressive MPG and emissions.

The rangetopping AMG variant will be housing a 5.5 litre V8 Biturbo with around 525 Horsepower and mated to a variant of the AMG Speedshift MCT 7-speed, and is touted to be around 28 miles per gallon.

Mercedes CLS Shooting Brake Spyshots (Updated SpyVideo)

Here are the latest CLS spy shots in white, with the front uncamouflaged and it seems unchanged from the CLS Saloon.

We expect the back to be close to the concept with some exclusive led encrusted cluster and the chrome detailing around the rear’s sharp curves.

The only thing we expect to be toned down from the concept is the interior and the instrument clusters.

We expect the Mercedes new twin-turbocharged 4.6l Litre V8 to be the engine at launch, and we expect an AMG variant late in 2012.
