Everyone here already knows I'm a smart-a**. I love cars, I have a bachelors in electrical engineering and I'm paying for that education as a certified technician. I work on all Eurotrash, but Mercedes is my specialty.

2017 Hyundai Equus spied with a ultra-luxurious interior
I don't think they "stole" anything here, but those are DEFINITELY last generation Faurecia seating units (same used in A8). There current stuff is in the new S and upcoming A8. With the global automotive supplier base being what it is, you cant be surprised the Koreans are adopting gen-old (aka: proven) tech from the best companies in the world for their premium products. That's been their MO for the last decade.

Haven't the 5 and 7 been joined at the tech since E32/E34?

Bugatti says Veyron successor will have higher top speed; SUV and sedan ruled out
Bugatti needs to crack 300mph with a production car to stay relevant. Even if only at Ehra-Lessien.

Possible Mercedes-Maybach E-Class makes spy photo premiere (19 pics)
@Godfather. Considering the current S600 Maybach isnt the pinnacle of the S class lineup, the AMG is, Id assume they would continue that business model and price the E Maybach between 90-110K, about double the price of a base E class. Who would pay three times the price for more leather and legroom? Doesnt sound like a plausible strategy to me.

Fully loaded E-class Maybach should be right around $100K. $100K barely gets you in an S. Who wants a stripper S class?

1990 Mercedes-Benz G-Class receives vintage theme from Carlex Design
I personally would've gone with a different leather, but the quality is definitely top notch.

Tow truck fails to pick up Maybach 62S because it’s too heavy [video]
Good theory, but no ones armoring anything with a panoramic roof.

2016 Honda Accord Coupe facelift goes official with subtle cosmetic tweaks
What progress? Acura is the current J/K of the industry. The only company that gets less love is Lincoln. Even Cadillac's are coveted more than Acuras. If it wasnt for MDX they'd be in some serious trouble.

Lexus wants a second flagship, likely an SUV
SC. Those brakes are too small for a grand SUV.

Heavily crashed Ferrari F12 Berlinetta is a €77,000 pile of junk
You guys are crazy. Engine (minus a few intake and accessory drive pieces), transmission, drive line, a little less than 3/4 of suspension, fuel and emissions systems, exhaust, heat shielding and bracing, dash trim, switchgear, complete HVAC system, seats, controllers and harnesses, carpet, insulation... this is a pretty whole Ferrari for salvage. 77K seems about right. Little BS Ferrari pieces are insanely expensive.

Pontiac Fiero-based Ferrari Enzo replica looks ghastly
$5500 would have been MUCH better spent on a SC3800/4T65E swap, and a liveable interior upgrade. This is beyond trash.

Next-gen Mercedes-Benz E-Class taillight first real photo
Thats a good thing! You'd like a return to the dismal W211, W220 & W203 era... where they coated the bottom of all reliability tests? It took MB 100 years to build its quality reputation and in one vehicle generation, all was lost. Most of those cars are all used up now and Mercedes is STILL catching a bad rap.

Next-gen Mercedes-Benz E-Class taillight first real photo
S class already does this. In a normal stop, the lighting controller follows the principle mentioned in this article. If a panic stop is engaged, the lights illuminate above normal intensity, something like 110%. If the rear radar recognizes an impending rear collision it will also "flicker" or strobe the lights to alert the approaching vehicle. IIRC, BMW used to illuminate an entire extra section of the brake lights when a panic stop ensued on the updated E65/66.

Mother doesn't allow firefighters to smash BMW’s window to free her stuck child
Don't be so sensationalized. If the child had been locked in the car for only a short while but was crying from the panic of the outside hysteria, and the locksmith was close to arrival, what is gained by smashing the window?

Mother doesn't allow firefighters to smash BMW’s window to free her stuck child
How long had the child been in the car? How far away was the locksmith? I need both of those answers before I can condemn the mother's choice. The kids not gonna die from a 10 min wait...

2016 Lexus ES 350 & ES 300h get detailed
Audi gets all the credit, but I really think Lexus has some of the best interiors in the business right now. Particularly in their lower end products. This looks like designer furniture.

A Maserati gets written off after being covered in white paint
I dunno. These generation Qports have almost every surface covered in color matched Poltrona Frau Semi-aniline leather...$$$! Write it off and have whoever picks it up at the wholesale auction swap in an interior from a wrecked one.

Someone who wants insurance to write it off instead of continuing to make that $1k payment each month...

Mercedes-Benz E-Class W213 returns in 14 fresh spy shots
The Airmatic/ADS combo is the benchmark in the business. Replace with Arnott struts proactively every 100K miles and the rest of the system is pretty bulletproof. As for the pics, Airmatic keeps the car steady under high G loads, not level, thats for ABC. ADS keeps it from pogoing.

LOL, thats a "largely carried over" interior? Completely new infotainment setup and dash...

Volvo S90 spied testing for the first time [video]
Nobody really cares about cylinder count anymore. Turbo 4cyl are making the same HP and Tq numbers of yesterdays V6s and yesteryears V8s.

2016 BMW 7-Series pricing and options accidentally revealed on Austrian configurator (19 photos)
E32 was revolutionary, E38 was an evolution of that theme. E65/66 was VERY revolutionary (maybe the biggest automotive revolution of our time), F01/02 was a big step...but still an evolution of the previous theme. It was time for another revolutionary 7. They dropped the ball.

2017 Audi A8 expected to get e-turbo, OLED screens and gesture control
Except when W202 was a miniature W140, W203 was a baby W220 and now while W205 is a miniature W222, right? They all do "same sausage different lengths", get over it. It sells cars.

Lamborghini Huracan and Audi R8 could get 5-cylinder turbo engine
It didnt burn or anything as dramatic, but it did have consistent issues dumping the extracted heat from the intake charge.
