Mercedes has unveiled the new C63 AMG Safety Car for the 2011 DTM racing season.
Based on the facelifted sedan, the vehicle is outfitted with an adjustable coil-over suspension, a high-performance braking system and a roof-mounted LED light bar. Other goodies include race seats, an advanced communications system and a leather/Alcantara steering wheel with paddle shifters.
Under the hood, the naturally-aspirated 6.3-liter (6208cc) V8 engine has been equipped with the AMG Performance Package which enables it to develop 480 hp (358 kW / 487 PS) and 443 lb-ft (600 Nm) of torque. This allows the sedan to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 4.3 seconds and keep up with the racing action.

Ralph Lauren Classic Car Collection Exhibition in Paris (Part 1)
Ralph Lauren Reveals His Classic Car Collection In Europe For The Very First Time
Ralph Lauren is transporting his most exquisite car collection to the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris for a special exhibit called "The Art of the Automobile: Masterpieces from the Ralph Lauren Collection".
Last night stars rubbed shoulders at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs, Paris, where they were the first to see Ralph Lauren's Classic car collection in Europe.
Jean Reno marvelled at the beauty of the cars, expressing that the cars are historic but modern. Zhang Ziyi spoke about how much she loves visiting Paris and the passion of the city. The former F1 driver, Jackie Stewart, fondly recalls driving and racing with Ralph Lauren in the LM Ferrari in the collection.
The exhibition opens from the 28th of April, where a selection of Ralph Lauren's most prestigious sports cars from the 1930s to the present day is on show for the first time in Europe at Paris' Musée des Arts Décoratifs. 17 outstanding cars, chosen by the curator Rodolphe Rapetti, outline the main phases of European automobile history.
Stylish not only in clothing but also in automobiles, world renowned designer Ralph Lauren has established himself as one of the world's major car collectors. His impressive collection includes a 1938 Bugatti, a 1958 Ferrari Testa Rossa and a 2010 Lamborghini Murcielago; making Ralph Lauren's range of cars 'a museum of automotive history, an archive of performance machines that represent the finest achievements in motorsport'.
With this collection, Ralph Lauren shows that the automobile is a major art form created by the industry's biggest names: Bugatti, Alfa Romeo, Bentley, Mercedes-Benz, Jaguar, Porsche and of course, Ferrari, the high point of this unique collection.
The exhibition will be the first time his collection will be shown in Europe; and with the distance the cars were required to travel, the transportation and instillation of cars was planned and carefully executed to maintain high standards of care.

Mercedes Benz C63 AMG Sound!! Revs - accelerations - ride!! - 1080p HD
Jorrik went for a testride in the Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG! We had this C63 for 1,5 hour to test it and compare it to the BMW M3 E92, wich I allready have driven earlier. First you see some shots from the exteriour, than it start ups and making some very nice revs! After that you will hear and see some accelerations and finally some shots inside when accelerating on the highway in the Netherlands :)
The question is: Wich one should you choose? The C63 AMG or the M3?
Before I drove the C63 I should definitely have chosen the C63 AMG, but after I have driven it I should choose the M3. The M3 is much smoother.... I don't know how I need to explain it in proper in English, but my choice is the M3!
I hope you like the video and please leave a comment! :-)

2014 Mercedes S-Class - assistance systems animation
Mercedes has officially unveiled the 2014 S-Class at the Airbus A380 delivery center in Hamburg, Germany.
Designed to become one of the most luxurious and advanced vehicles ever constructed, the 2014 S-Class has an evolutionary design that incorporates a sportier front fascia, a larger grille and a gentle slanting rear end. The sleek styling enables the model to have drag coefficient of 0.24 which is pretty impressive considering the pint-sized CLA has a drag coefficient of 0.23.
2012 Mercedes C63 AMG Station Wagon - F1 Medical Car - INCREDIBLE LOUD SOUND!!!
In this video you can see the 2012 Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG. This new car is used as the Medical Car of the 2011 Formula One Championship and I recorded it during the Italian GP at Monza Circuit.
The engine is a 6.3 litres V8 engine that can produce 487 bhp at 6800 rpm.
The sound of this car is quite insane, especially while downshifting.
What I can say for sure is: TURN UP YOUR SPEAKERS!!!

2012 Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Estate (2011 Geneva Auto Show)
AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT sports transmission increases efficiency: New design and enhanced technology for the C 63 AMG
Affalterbach -- The successful Mercedes-Benz C 63 AMG is now more attractive than ever: the modified design of the top-of-the-range C-Class model is complemented by numerous enhancements to its technology which deliver even more driving enjoyment while reducing fuel consumption significantly. The introduction of the AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 7-speed sports transmission with the "Controlled Efficiency" mode as standard along with a new power steering pump helps to reduce the combined NEDC fuel consumption by about ten percent to 12.0 l/100 km (Estate: 12.3 l/100 km). The output of the AMG 6.3-litre V8 engine is unchanged at 336 kW (457 hp) and can be increased to a maximum of 358 kW (487 hp) with the optional AMG Performance package. Agility, grip and ride comfort have been enhanced as a result of numerous measures to optimise the AMG sports suspension. New assistance systems and a new generation of telematics with internet access increase both safety and comfort.
The latest 2011 generation of the C 63 AMG is now more dynamic and athletic than ever. Thanks to its new radiator grille with a large Mercedes star and a wing-type transverse louvre, as well as a new AMG front apron with a lower cross member painted in high-gloss black, special AMG daytime running lights and side air outlets, the front section recalls the look of the SL 63 AMG high-performance roadster. The new bonnet with its modified powerdomes is now made of aluminium. New clear-lens headlamps emphasise the car's distinctive, self-confident presence, especially when the optional Intelligent Light System (ILS) is also specified. The wide front wings with the "6.3 AMG" legend and the new 5 twin-spoke AMG light-alloy wheels which are painted in titanium grey and have a high-sheen finish dominate the side view. Good contact with the road is provided by the wide 235/40 R 18 and 255/35 R 18 tyres at front and rear respectively.
The rear view of the C 63 AMG also evokes the SL 63 AMG: the new AMG rear apron has a distinctive, black diffuser insert with three pronounced diffuser fins. The two chromed twin tailpipes of the AMG sports Exhaust system are as pleasing to the ear as they are to the eye.
