Mercedes-AMG A 35 Sedan: The Nemesis For Audi & BMW Hot Shoes

The Mercedes-AMG A 35 Sedan shows how big things can come in small packages.  Under the hood, the 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbo engine provides over 300 horsepower.  The individual AMG-tuned drive modes are complimented by a special “RACE-START” feature.  Mercedes-Benz recently dropped one of their typically huge press releases on their (relatively) small A 35 performance sedan.

Made to showcase its vintage BMW engine, the ‘Birdcage’ has a wireframe design

At first glance, the BMW Motorrad Birdcage looks like a 3D model viewed in wireframe mode. It’s easy to make that mistake, because the Birdcage, sure enough, has an incredible, wireframe-inspired design. Designed as an homage to the BMW Motorrad boxer engine the company developed 50 years ago, the Birdcage houses the absolutely stunning piece of engineering in a titanium see-through mesh-esque cage that gives the engine the attention it deserves. The titanium frame allows the curvilinear boxer...

Mercedes-AMG is updating the GLC 63 model line for 2020, not that it really needed to. The performance variants of this compact crossover already trounce their mainstream counterparts in terms of looks — even the oddly squat GLC “Coupe.” However, as the manufacturer was not content to simply rest on its laurels, it decided to […] The post 2020 Mercedes-AMG GLC 63: Better Handling, Smarter appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Physical Debut of 2020 Cadillac CT5 Offers Additional Insight

Last month, Cadillac digitally unveiled the all-new CT5 sedan — leaving little to the imagination. We learned Caddy’s upcoming model will come with either a turbocharged 2.0-liter four or a twin-turbo 3.0-liter V6, though General Motors decided to stop short of sharing output figures and pricing. While the cost continues to remain a mystery, GM provided output […] The post Physical Debut of 2020 Cadillac CT5 Offers Additional Insight appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Incomplete Tribute: The 2020 Nissan 370Z 50th Anniversary Edition
