The world's fastest street-legal sedan comes yet again from Brabus: With a top speed of 350.2 km/h (217.6 mph) the Brabus E V12 Biturbo, powered by a 640-hp / 471-kW twin-turbo twelve cylinder engine, set a new world record during the 'auto motor und sport' magazine high-speed tests in Nardo, Italy.

With this record, the small-series production E V12 ultra-performance sedan, based on the current Mercedes W 211 E-Class series, follows in the footsteps of the legendary Brabus E V12 based on the predecessor E-Class models of the W/S 210 series. In October of 1996 this 582-hp / 428-kW Brabus automobile found entry into the Guinness Book of World Records as the 'world's fastest sedan' with an electronically limited top speed of 330 km/h (205 mph).

The SLK ditches the boxy, dated look of the old model in favor of the same F1-inspired design cues that differentiate the SL and SLR from the rest of M-Bs lineup. The F1 nose treatment, flared fenders and set-me-free stance beg you to jump in, twist the key and begin your apex-vanquishing quest; the old car had us praying only for top-down cruising days and an impressionable crowd milling around the Neiman Marcus parking lot.

As is the norm whenever a manufacturer introduces a reworked model, the SLK grows appreciably: It is 2.8 inches longer and 3.0 inches wider than its predecessor. Mercedes says the new unibody, which uses more high-strength steel alloy, is 46 percent stiffer in torsional rigidity and 19 percent stiffer in bending rigidity.

The Boxster has undergone a facelift and chassis upgrade too, though the external changes are less conspicuous. Most obvious are new oval headlights separated from the fog lights and turn indicators, as well as a cleaner front bumper, reshaped and larger side intakes, new side mirrors and a revised rear end. Porsche claims the car is 80 percent new. It also claims a 9 percent improvement in torsional stiffness, while resistance to bending increases 14 percent.

Mercedes-Benz this morning released the first official pictures of the new S-Class, which is due to be shown at this fall's Frankfurt Auto Show and will go on sale in Europe in the fall.

Set to go on sale in the U.S. early next year, the S-Class is about 1.7 inches longer, an inch wider and more than three inches longer in wheelbase than the car it replaces.

A new V-8 joins the S-Class lineup this ear, and features four valves per cylinder and variable valve timing. It's mated to a seven-speed automatic.



The new Mercedes immediately looks more imposing than today's S-Class (W220), with a sleeker nose, bulging wheel arches that make the wheels look small, and a tail that has hints of the latest Bentley and even Benz's own Maybach.

DaimlerChrysler is using a new concept vehicle to examine the great potential of bionics for automobile development, and has achieved outstanding results for fuel consumption and emissions with a combination of pioneering diesel engine technology and innovative emission control methods. The Mercedes-Benz bionic car study will have its world premiere at this years DaimlerChrysler Innovation Symposium in Washington.

To realise the Mercedes-Benz bionic car, the engineers at the Mercedes-Benz Technology Centre and the DaimlerChrysler Research department have for the first time looked for a specific example in nature which not only approximates to the idea of an aerodynamic, safe, comfortable and environmentally compatible car in terms of details, but as a formal and structural whole. The example arrived at was the boxfish.
