Mercedes Benz SLR Commercial "It's for real"
The Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren is an Anglo-German sports car jointly
developed by Mercedes-Benz and McLaren Automotive, built jointly in
Portsmouth and the McLaren Technology Centre in Woking, Surrey, England.
Daimler AG, owner of Mercedes-Benz, also owns 40% of the McLaren Group.
Due to the presence of the automatic gear box, front mid-engined
arrangement and its driving characteristics lead some commentators to
classify the SLR McLaren as a GT whose rivals can be considered to be e.g.
the Aston Martin V12 Vanquish and Ferrari 599 GTB.
It is the fastest automatic transmission car in the world. SLR stands for
"Sport, Leicht, Rennsport" (sport, light, racing). Mercedes-Benz has stated
that they will build 3500 SLRs in a span of 7 years, with an annual
production of only 500 cars. The car's base price is GB£300,000 (approx.
US$495,000 or €475,000, c. 2007).
The Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren is inspired by the Mercedes-Benz 300 SLR of
1955, based on the W196 F1 car, yet named after the road-going 300SL
Gullwing. On 4 April 2008, Mercedes announced they will cease production of
the SLR. The last of the coupes rolled off the production line at the end
of 2007 and the roadster version is due to be discontinued in early 2009.
The brake discs are carbon-ceramic and provide better stopping power and
fade resistance than steel discs when operating under ideal working
temperature. Mercedes-Benz claims these discs are fade resistant to
1200°C. The front discs are internally vented and 370 mm in diameter. 8
piston calipers are used. Rear discs are 360 mm in diameter with 4 piston
calipers. During wet conditions the calipers automatically skim the surface
of the disks to keep them dry.
To improve braking performance there is an automatic air brake, when
engaged the rear elevation angle of the rear spoiler is set to 65 degrees.
The additional rear downforce in addition to the markedly increased
aerodynamic drag increases peak deceleration ~25%.
The SLR features active aerodynamics; there is a spoiler mounted on the
rear integral air brake flap. The spoiler increases downforce depending on
its angle of elevation (angle of attack). At speeds above 95 km/h the
spoiler/brake automatically raises to 10 degrees (15 in 722 edition), when
demanded via the driver's switch, the elevation can be increased to 30
degrees (35 in 722 version) for increased rear downforce, at the cost of
increased steady state drag.
The SLR McLaren sports a hand-built 5.4-litre, supercharged V8 engine.
The SLR sports a 232-kilogram (512 lb), hand-built, 5.4-litre (5439
cc/331.9 cu in), supercharged, all-aluminum, SOHC V8 engine. The cylinders
are angled at 90 degrees with three valves per cylinder and lubricated via
a dry sump system. The compression ratio is 8.8:1 and the bore and stroke
is 97 millimetre (3.82 in) and 92 millimeters (3.62 in), respectively. The
Lysholm-type twin-screw Supercharger
produces 0.9 bar (13 psi) of Boost,
the turbine rotates at 23000 revolutions per minute, and the air is cooled
via two Intercoolers. The
engine generates a maximum power of 626 PS (617 hp/460 kW) at 6500
revolutions per minute and a maximum torque of 780 newton-metres (575
ft·lbf) at 3250 revolutions per minute. 2003 models were leaving showrooms
at 616 bhp (459 kW/625 PS) and now are slightly increased to 626 bhp (467
kW/635 PS) .
Unlike most of its contemporaries, its engine is front-mid mounted. McLaren
took the original concept car designed by Mercedes and moved the engine 1
metre (39.4 in) behind the front bumper, and around 50 centimetres (19.7
in) behind the front axle. They also optimized the design of the center

buses, coaches, and trucks owned by Daimler AG. Mercedes-Benz has, over the
years, introduced many of the technological and safety features that have
become common in modern vehicles.
2012 Mercedes Benz M-Class Crash Test
The front end structure, with its high energy-absorption potential, is
essentially made up of the firewall and two lines of longitudinal members,
anchored at the A-pillars. Two vertical members link the longitudinal
members, which further increase deformation resistance. The necessary
rigidity and strength of the floor assembly is provided by a robust
structure made up of a separate center tunnel plus separate longitudinal
members along each side, attached to the side wall. These are supported by
cross members anchored to the floor as well as by a connecting member to
the B-pillar as support for the front structure. The extremely robust side
wall assembly comprises, quite apart from the longitudinal members
described above and the side roof frame, A-pillars in a dual-casing design,
internally reinforced with high strength steel. In a side collision, the
cross member beneath the cowl, the cross member between the longitudinal
members underneath the pedal floor, the high-strength-steel cross member
beneath the driver's seat and the magnesium-alloy cross member underneath
the instrument panel, as well as the front roof frame, ensure the highest
possible stability of the occupant cell. The positioning of the fuel tank
in front of the rear axle and of the filler neck over the rear axle
increases the available deformation distance, maximizing the level of
energy absorption in the event of a rear-end collision. This is achieved,
above all, through the boxshaped design of the rear longitudinal members.

Mercedes Benz M-class Commercial 2
The Mercedes-Benz W164 M-Class SUV was introduced in 2005. It is a midsized
unibody truck with seating for 5. The W164 replaced the body-on-frame W163
M-Class for the 2006 model year. It is built in Tuscaloosa, Alabama with
the R-Class and the new GL-Class.
The Car Crash: Truck Collides with a Mercedes Benz in a Tunnel
Both truck and a Mercedes go for the middle lane. No one thinks the other
is doing the same. Suddenly truck crashes into the Benz making it drag in
front of of the truck.
Driver of the Mercedes is the luckiest driver in Australia. No doubt
satisfied with his choice of car.

2010 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupe Commercial
Uploaded by www.BenzInsider.com
The new Coupé offers all the technical innovations of the new E-Class
series that one might expect to find in a sports-oriented luxury coupé.
These include selective damper control, drowsiness detection, preventive
occupant protection and the Active Bonnet. As a feature specific to the
Coupé, the Dynamic Driving package allows different suspension setups at
the touch of a button. Adaptive Main Beam Assist, road sign recognition and
an automatic emergency braking system are other features with which the new
series sets standards in this vehicle category.
