Daimler could buy Aston Martin
Mercedes should absolutely buy AM. They need a premium brand for 2 reasons, one to go above their high-end cars, and second, as a counter to all the dilution of the great MB name by churning out mass market vehicles of alphabet soup nomenclature (A-, B-, CLA, GLA and their numerous variants, which in 5 years time will be on sale on crappy used car lots for $5k). It would also help AM to get the engineering expertise of MB and AMG for their cars. Finally, it will counter BMW and VW with their luxury brands of Rolls-Royce and Bentley, respectively, which MB should have bought when they were for sale. As good as the new S-class is, and I spent one week driving it, reports of its build quality and comparison to RR are grossly exaggerated. In fact, the attention to quality is hardly different to the outgoing W221 series S-class, a car I have also spent a lot of time in.

Mercedes highlights the curve control system on the S-Class Coupe
It will be great technology for the first 5 years, then when it breaks down it will be too expensive to fix, relegating this car to a value of $4k and the scrapheap by year 12. Not like the original Mercedes coupes of the 50's, 60's, 70's, and 80's which still look fantastic today (W126 560SEC anyone) and are still being driven.

Mercedes-Benz CLA Shooting Brake spied testing in Dubai
Agreed. Core values were lost after the W124, W140 era of cars.

Mercedes-Benz CLA Shooting Brake spied testing in Dubai
Mercedes-Benz is turning into a joke with its dizzying array of models, most of which are nonsense. The end result in a few years will be a glut of cars with no resale value and a diminished brand value.

2014 Mercedes-Benz S-Class Coupe shows its stylish metal in Geneva
This car looks good but not stunning. The rear looks like a VW Passat and is ungainly. The Bentley Continental and RR Wraith are much more grand and majestic. The other big problem with this car is the front - it looks like all other Mercs now - can you really tell it apart from the lesser CLA, E-class coupe, or the plethora of alphabet soup models that Mercedes is churning out by the dozen. Take a look at the Maserati Alfieri - now that is STUNNING. I do have to say the interior is beautiful though.

Beijing Auto Shenbao D-Series Aero introduced in Shanghai
Ladies and Gentlemen, if you thought you couldn't make the facelifted E-class Mercedes any uglier....I give you this!

2013 Mercedes-Benz E-L seen before Auto Shanghai debut tomorrow
If you want a long wheelbase E-class, why not buy a short wheelbase S-class. They are about the same length. This is crazy marketing in my opinion. And yes, that new grille is hideous.

BREAKING: 2014 Mercedes-Benz C-Class spied without camouflage
I hate this new sports style grille they have on the current C-class and now facelifted E-class. It takes away from the bold tradition and style of Mercedes-Benz and dilutes the brand. These new cars look nondescript and like they were styled by the Koreans. Mercedes not standing tall and proud any more. Maserati Ghibli - yeah baby! Now that's gonna give the E-class a run for its money.

Seriously f**ked.

2014 Maserati Ghibli official photos and preliminary details available
This is an incredibly sexy car. The styling is gorgeous, putting the hideously redesigned Mercedes E-class to shame, and I hope will cannabalize sales from that ugly car. Note that in Europe the Ghibli will also be available with a 2-liter 4 cylinder engine, due to the tax penalties on cars greater than 2 liters. This car deserves to be successful. I just hope it is reliable over the long run!

Welcome to the new world of lettering/numbering: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, X1,X2, X3, X4, X5, X6, X7 and....wait for it...A, B, C, CLA, CLS, E, F, G, GL, GLA, GLK, ML, R, S, SL, SLK, SLS, V classes. Have I missed anything?

2014 BMW 4-Series Coupe caught undisguised during photo shoot
Look at picture #1 and compare the tail lights to the A5 coupe. Also look at the rear beltline as it rises through the fuel filler lid and integrates into the rear tail-light. There's definitely a stylistic cue to the A5 there. Still a stunning looking car and better than the A5 though. And no, I'm not on drugs.

2014 BMW 4-Series Coupe caught undisguised during photo shoot
Best looking car in this segment although from the rear and 3/4 angle there are cues of the Audi A5 coupe. Nonetheless, puts the Mercedes C-class coupe to shame, which looks like a Honda Civic.

2014 BMW 5-Series spied with minimal disguise
Aging?? How is the current 5-series aging? It's only been out 3 years. And WCF thinks the styling isn't anything to write home about? Really? It beats the facelifted Mercedes E-class hands down.

2014 Mercedes-Benz C-Class spied by WCF reader
Funny how cars just keep getting bigger. I bet this new C-class is the same size as a W124 Mercedes E-class (my favorite E-series), and the current E-class is probably as big as a W126 S-class. My BMW 3-series E36 model is as big as the current 1-series. It's getting crazy and overkill and too many models. Our roads aren't any wider than they were 20 years ago.

2013 Mercedes-Benz S-Class sheds more of its camo
I meant put the star back on top of the grille (a la W126 and earlier Mercedes), not in the center of the grille, like the facelifted E-class an c class sport sedan. I agree with you that it looks plain stupid and dilutes the brand.

2013 Mercedes-Benz S-Class sheds more of its camo
Looks way too much like the W221 S-class. MB should have made the car much more imposing if it seriously wants to compete in the Bentley/Rolls-Royce category. The bonnet needs to exude more masculinity and not be too sloping, the grille needs to be more upright, and for God's sake, PLEASE put the 3-pointed star back on the grille and not on the bonnet where it looks like a stuck-on afterthought. They should have brought more elements of the fantastically designed W126 S-class, albeit with a modern theme. Rolls-Royce has done a fantastic job with the styling of its current cars, as has Bentley. I hope once the camo comes of this W222 it looks more imposing than these images suggest.

Facelifted 2014 Mercedes E-Class lineup graces Detroit
Awful facelift. Why does the sedan have the coupe front? What happened to model differentiation? This narrows the distinction between an E-class and a CLS-class. I think top brass at MB is confused about how to lead this stoic brand of such great heritage.

2014 Mercedes-Benz E-Class videos released
The BMW 5-series is so gonna cannabalize sales of this awkward facelifted E-class.

Mercedes-Benz has received almost 90,000 orders for new A-Class
It's sad to see MB get excited about, (1) beating VW, and (2) becoming a real volume brand, not a car to be savored.

Too much of the Infiniti G37 appears in this car, especially from the rear 3/4 angle.

Anyone in the U.K. that is gonna spend 71,000 Pounds on an LS needs their head examined.

Rolls-Royce Hyperion is for sale once again [video]
OMG, it's the front of a Chrysler 300C welded to the back of a Toyota Solara! Such brilliance! (Piece of SH*T).

2013 Range Rover priced at $83,500 (US)
Range Rover really needs to make this a 7 seater. That's the only reason stopping me from buying this over a Mercedes GL450. The Range Rover has a timeless elegance no other luxury SUV can come close to.

Mercedes working on a seven-seat B-Class - report
Funny how MB now counts VW and Opel as competitors. In the good old days when MB made proper cars the only competition came from Rolls-Royce/Bentley.

New Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupe Revealed Before Geneva Debut
This car is bloody awful. I'm a Mercedes fan, have 2 myself, and my family have been strong Merc guys for 30 years. BUT Mercedes design is getting really bad now, the cars just don't look special anymore. The E class looks like something from Lexus. When I have to replace my S-class I will most likely get a Maserati.

Mercedes E-Class Coupe Promotional Video
m!, this is actually built on the E-class platform. But it is very very ugly. The 3 series coupe and audi A5 look much better than this. Take off the star and replace it with a Lexus badge, that's how it looks. Looks like a Toyota Camry from the back.

Mercedes E-Class Cabrio First Time Spied with Soft-Top
BTW, the coupe is ugly too. Looks like a Toyota. AT least they've got the badging right now, replacing the silly CLK with the E class. Nothing like the W124 E-class coupe/cabrio though.
