Mercedes-AMG Project One’s exciting test phase and expected delivery date

Mercedes-AMG Project ONE NZ

The development of the Mercedes-AMG Project ONE hypercar is entering a new phase, so bringing it ever closer to production standard: several pre-production models are now practising their fast laps at the company’s own proving ground and technology centre at Immendingen, unfortunately, that’s some distance away from New Zealand.

Born NOT to be mild – Mercedes-AMG A45 S review

Mercedes-AMG A 45 S review NZ

Aside from those in the ‘supercar’ area, on the whole, vehicle manufacturers create models to appeal to some sort of mass-market, especially when it comes to Hatchbacks. After all, in New Zealand, the ‘hatch’ segment itself is losing ground to all manner of SUVs so why wouldn’t they. Then, to make them ‘hotter’ they hand […]

Mercedes-AMG GLE 63 S Review New Zealand In my not so humble opinion, the idea or concept surrounding a mancave is essentially, escape. It’s a place to call your own. You can ‘design’ it yourself (and by that I mean fill it with every toy and gadget you can lay your hands on), turn up […]

Getting our A into G with Mercedes-Benz

There’s little doubt that Mercedes-Benz have a very impressive SUV line-up (well vehicles in general for that matter). Boasting everything from the 5.5L V8 powered AMG GLS 63 (and of course the G-Wagon) to the all new X. Large or small and whatever the terrain, it would appear that Mercedes-Benz have a seat that will […]

Open day with Mercedes-Benz

Let’s face it; winter isn’t generally the best time to showcase convertible vehicles, especially in NZ. However, in true Mercedes style; the sun shone brightly on a crisp and refreshing day and set the tone for the feast of frivolity (sorry I mean hard work) that was to unveil. Arriving at Mercedes head office in […]

Mercedes-AMG CLA 45 Coupe review – Is this a Typo?

Most of the time I like to know as little as possible on the vehicle I am to review. I consider it a type of blind date where I get to have that initial meet and greet (with all that wonder, speculation and assumption that comes with it), followed by spending time getting to know […]

Mercedes-AMG – Driving Performance

Globally, three distinctive letters embody automotive high performance, exclusivity and dynamic driving pleasure and bring passion to an already desirable brand – Mercedes AMG. Although AMG was formally founded in 1967, Hans Werner Aufrecht and Erhard Melcher (the G comes from Aufrecht’s birthplace Grossaspach) were two former Mercedes engineers that had already forged a reputation […]
