2016 Mercedes-AMG GT S | Shaun Keenan

Tested: 2016 Mercedes-AMG GT S

AMG! Better When Wet? I’ve driven many AMGs the past few years, but none have gotten me as excited as the new 2016 Mercedes-AMG GT. Even the bodacious SLS AMG – now officially my second favourite AMG – no longer has the same appeal. With a $149,900 entry ticket, the uprated GT S coupe is a stout performer right o… Read more →

2015 Mercedes-Benz C 63 AMG S Model | Shaun Keenan

Tested: 2015 Mercedes-Benz C 63 AMG

The Sultan of Studio 63 (Yawn) My chauffeur seems slightly miffed. “The guy behind just turned left,” he says while checking the rearview mirror. “On the straight!” he chuffs before saying something in German to a colleague over the two-way radio in his right hand while nonchalantly holding the steering wheel with his left.

Rather, it’s because this particular bad boy… Read more →

Tested: 2010 Mercedes-Benz B200 Turbo

“When I picture a Mercedes-Benz in my head, the original SLR gullwing, iconic G-wagon and classic SEL saloons usually dominate the space between. Now, the B200 Turbo is no SLS AMG; and, for the price of a SLR McLaren, you could have at least a dozen fully-loaded versions in which to scoot around your compound. To be completely honest though,… Read more →
