Mercedes SL 500 is an automotive icon that can look back on more than 60 years of history, but the convertible roadster still has to keep up with the times. That's why Mercedes has overhauled it and come out with a new model. The SL 500's V8 engine, with a capacity of 4663 cubic centimeters, powers up to a solid 320 kW. That's a 12 percent increase over its predecessor, even though its capacity has fallen by nearly a liter. At the same time, though, its torque has risen from 530 Newton meters to 700. The base model SL 500 sells for around 117,000 euros in Germany. For more go to http://www.dw.de/dw/episode/9798/0,,15846404,00.html

VW up! in a new 4-door | Drive it!
The Volkswagen Up! is a sporty option for taking on city roads and now it's available in a 4-door version. Drive it! takes it for a test run. Does the 4-door model offer enough room for four adult passengers? The 4-door model is still the same length, but the front doors are now 20 centimeters smaller. And the car now weighs an extra 17 kilograms. There's room for a small folding bike in the trunk, and two passengers can sit comfortably in the rear seats for short rides. The additional doors add 475 euros to the price tag - an investment that's well worth the cost. For more go to http://www.dw.de/dw/episode/9798/0,,15846404,00.html
Vintage: 1957 Lotus Elite | Drive it!
Christoph Bauer on the hunt for the classics of automotive history. Looking around Wolfburg's Zeithaus Musem, Christoph Bauer discovers one of the more innovative sports cars of the 1950s: the Lotus Elite. Just over a thousand of this model were built between 1957 and 1963. Founder of Lotus Colin Chapman ventured into new technical territory with this model. The body and the chassis were constructed completely from fiberglass parts, which were then fused together. The Elite also featured a purist interior design, paired with low-slung seating and a snappy gear shift. For more go to http://www.dw.de/dw/episode/9798/0,,15846404,00.html

2013 Mercedes-Benz SL 65 AMG V12 Biturbo - Design
The new Mercedes-Benz SL 65 AMG: Effortlessly superior and stylish performanceAffalterbach, Mar 20, 2012
Affalterbach -- Mercedes-AMG is embarking on the 2012 roadster season in inimitably dynamic style: following on from the recent launch of the SL 63 AMG, the top eight-cylinder model, there now comes the presentation of the new
Mercedes-Benz SL 65 AMG, the V12 roadster in the line-up from the Stuttgart-based manufacturer. The AMG 6.0-litre V12 "biturbo" (twin-turbocharged) engine develops a maximum output of 463 kW (630 hp) and maximum torque of 1000 newton metres. The result: exceptional performance, impressive power delivery and effortlessly superior dynamics. As with the SLS AMG super sports car, the use of an all-aluminium bodyshell results in a drastic reduction in weight. The new SL 65 AMG is some 170 kilograms lighter than before. The expressive front section is dominated by the new "twin blade" radiator grille and the front apron's lower cross strut in high-sheen chrome.
"The combination of exclusive V12 dynamic performance and a refined roadster driving experience was already the defining attribute of the predecessor model. We are convinced that, with the new SL 65 AMG, we have developed an incomparably exciting high-performance vehicle for the small, but loyal community of fans", says Ola Källenius, CEO of Mercedes-AMG GmbH.
An important aspect of the new model is the intelligent lightweight construction which also contributes to reducing the fuel consumption. At 11.6 litres per 100 kilometres (NEDC combined) it represents a saving of 2.4 litres or 17 percent compared with the previous SL 65 AMG and simultaneously establishes a new benchmark in the twelve-cylinder petrol engine segment. A major role in the reduced fuel consumption figures is played by the AMG SPEEDSHIFT PLUS 7G-TRONIC transmission, the ECO start/stop‑function, in-engine measures to optimise efficiency and alternator management. Despite the significantly reduced fuel consumption, the maximum output of the AMG V12 6-litre biturbo engine is up from 450 kW (612 hp) to 463 kW (630 hp). The maximum torque is 1000 newton metres.
The unrivalled performance figures of the new SL 65 AMG translate into an exceptional driving experience: acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h takes 4 seconds with the 200 km/h mark attained after just 11.8 seconds. The top speed is 250 km/h (electronically limited). As well as offering stunning acceleration, the AMG twelve-cylinder biturbo engine impresses with its smooth running characteristics and its distinctive AMG V12 sound. It is a performance that reconciles effortless superiority and stylishness to perfection.

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.
