2013 Mercedes Sprinter Tour ESP Obstacle Avoidance Demo & Car Safety Test Video
Benz stopped into the Angel Stadium of Anaheim inviting VIP clientele to
Test the Best as part of the Nationwide Sprinter Tour. As part of the
experience, those looking to buy a new 2013 Mercedes Benz Sprinter whether
they be in bulk or by personal delivery, are invited to test the fuel
economy, low speed maneuvering and tremendous stopping power back to back
with the competition. As well as the all new diesel powered multipurpose
machine's tremendous Electronic Stability Protection in a demonstration
worthy of a television commercial shoot.
Aside from the bright yellow outriggers, this one of a kind 2013 Mercedes
Benz Sprinter has 1500 pounds of liquid water suspended atop a 500 pound
steel cage to make it much more top heavy than any intelligent delivery
person might do. To top things off Mercedes has allowed the ESP Electronic
Stability Protection to be disabled (for professional use only) and a pair
of black Recaros and red racing harnesses allow for a total of three
passengers to ride along this safety demonstration first hand.
The ESP is disabled and an emergency maneuver is executed at 20 MPH. Then
the speed is raised by only ten clicks on the speedo to 30 MPH where effect
of speed is exponential and the Sprinter goes up on two wheels. The ESP is
then enabled as the Sprinter goes up the same obstacle this time at 40 MPH.
The change is not only phenomenal, but with as many of these commercial
vehicles on the road in the coming years, it might just save your life.

Gran Turismo 5 - Mercedes SLS @ Nurburgring Nordschleife
This video is about the last challenge on the Mercedes Nurburgring School
at intermediate level, wich previews a lap around the Nordschleife with an
SLR tuned by Gran Turismo. In the lap you find other cars (slower) just
like a normal trackday. This is another problem you must face, beyond the
already demanding track. Time is 7'02"68 wich grants gold, but I've made
some mistakes there and there, without them it could have been without any
problems under 7 minutes, without counting the presence of cars around the
The car is very funny to drive indeed. I think it's one of the best to
drive in the game.
I took the occasion to make a first experiment of double clipping both
camera and replay together... hope you like it!

Mercedes-Benz: Automated driving [English]
Mercedes-Benz have applied automated driving to conduct safety tests. Their
main objective was test their cars safety as if a human is driving it.
Parameters like speed, angle and timing cannot be simulated and it is not
really safe to risk a human driver during tests. Mercedes-Benz is the
leading manufacturer with regards to technological developments of cars. It
is known to assist in fast tracking the progress and execution of airbags,
three point safety belts, ABS, ESP and other automotive developments. Thus,
automated driving systems have been improved for test driving purposes.
Even though the said system has been used for some time now, they have
presently developed a program that would tackle additional driving factors
such as blind spot recognition systems, lane change warnings and night view
Mclaren Mercedes vs Porsche GT drag race - Not Top Gear
The Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren is an Anglo-German supercar jointly developed
by Mercedes-Benz and McLaren Automotive, built in Portsmouth and the
McLaren Technology Centre in Woking, Surrey, England. At the time
Mercedes-Benz owned 40 percent of the McLaren Group.
Due to the presence of the automatic gear box, front mid-engined
arrangement, and its driving characteristics, some commentators classify
the SLR McLaren as a GT whose rivals would be vehicles like the Aston
Martin DBS V12 and Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano.
SLR stands for "Sport, Leicht, Rennsport" (sport, light, racing).
Mercedes-Benz stated that they would build 3,500 SLRs over a span of seven
years, with an annual production of 500 cars.
The Porsche Carrera GT (Project Code 980) is a mid-engined sports car that
was manufactured by Porsche in Leipzig.
The development of Carrera GT can be traced back to its predecessors, the
911 GT1 and LMP1-98 racing cars. Due in part to the FIA and ACO rule
changes in 1998, both designs had ended. Porsche at the time had planned on
a new Le Mans prototype for 1999. The car was initially intended to use a
turbocharged flat-6, but was later
redesigned to use a new V10 engine, pushing the project back to planned
completion in 2000. The V10 was a unit secretly built by Porsche for the
Footwork Formula One team in 1992, but later shelved. The engine was
resurrected for the Le Mans prototype and increased in size to 5.7 litres.
Unfortunately the project was canceled after two days of testing for the
first car, in mid-1999, mostly due to Porsche's wish to build the Cayenne
SUV with involvement from Volkswagen and Audi, thus requiring engineering
expertise to be pulled from the motorsports division. It was also
speculated that VW-Audi chairman Ferdinand Piëch wanted Audi's new Le Mans
Prototype, the Audi R8 not to face competition from Porsche in 2004.
