      Prior Design in Germany has opened North American offices and with it they have announced their R230 widebody kit for US customers. This is probably the best looking widebody we have seen looking aggressive without going overboard. It is available for all R230 SL models and will update any SL to the facelift headlights. We are waiting on pricing details and will update this post when we receive them. For now, enjoy the pictures and contact the USA office here if interested: priordesignusa@gmail.com. ...

      German tuner Wheelsandmore has tackled the new CLS63 AMG. We are a bit disappointed with their results though, only 580 horsepower? This doesn't even really improve much upon the performance pack offered for the M157 twin turbo V8 from Mercedes. The base car offers 518 horsepower and the Performance Package 549 so, kind of a weak showing from Wheelsandmore. ...

      Most of you saw that Benzboost broke the story last week on Evosport's debt and failure to deliver parts to customers. We quoted this debt as in the hundreds of thousands but now have exact up to date figures that were released by Evosport themselves. Where and why would they reveal these figures? They revealed the details in documents seeking investment from a select, hand picked group of customers in order to get money they need flowing in. ...

      Nico Rosberg and Michael Schumacher finished the Malaysian GP in 12th and 9th place respectively. The struggles for the Petronas team continue in 2011 but the Mclaren-Mercedes team finished has a 2nd place finish thanks to Jenson Button.

Red Bull's Sebastian Vettel took the victory, his 2nd having won the first two races this season. ...

      EDO Competition has create the Black Arrow SLR which gets its name from the flat black paint it wears. The motor has been modified to put out 722 horsepower with a new pulley, tune, exhaust, headers, intake, and high flow cats. The gains are not supported by any dyno or performance figures. Really, this is just a bolt on SLR with flat black paint and some interior mods. We could do without the huge 722 graphics. ...

      The previous C63 Black Series spyphotos we showed you last month were of the sedan. This brought into question if they were focusing on the sedan or if the coupe had been abandoned. It is quite clear now Mercedes is working on Black Series versions of both. Photographers did look under the hood and it seems the 571 horsepower performance package version of the M157 twin turbo 5.5 liter V8 may make it to production. If so, game over, we bow in respect, and sign us up. ...

      USA Today has revealed a sneak peak of the Mercedes A-Class. If this is in fact the actual design, it is very aggressive and modern for what is an entry level Mercedes. The "Concept A" as this is referred to, will be unveiled at the Shanghai auto show. It features the new turbocharged Mercedes 4 cylinder as well as a dual clutch transmission. It also seems this car will make it to the U.S. and we hope not much changes from this concept. ...

      This is a great race to see, BimmerBoost and BenzBoost members DD GT3 RD and DLSJ5 racing their C63 P31 and M3 DCT respectively. The C63 P31 is stock and the DCT M3 has a catless X-pipe and Borla mufflers. The C63 with the P31 package is the decisively faster and for the M3 to win it would definitely take a tune. Check out the video below. ...

      We have been sitting on this story for some time but enough is enough, something has to be said. We can not sit idly by while Evosport continues to take money from our users and not deliver parts. BenzBoost user JRCART is the latest person who Evosport has taken thousands from, in his case under the guise of delivering a Weistec supercharger for his CLK63 black series. We wish we could say he is the only person who has spent considerable money with Evosport only to not get what he paid for, but he isn't. ...

      Supporting information continues to trickle in about the Renntech record breaking 1/4 mile run. A video of the run was recently posted and you can watch this below. What we know thus far is that it is likely on upgraded turbos and no nitrous was used in the run. This is the mod list we know of: drag radials, higher stall torque converter, limited slip diff, custom exhaust, modified intercooler, carbon ceramic brakes, and race gas only tune. Density altitude for the run was around 1500, very impressive. ...

      These records are falling left and right. It is quite surprising that literally days after MHP and Dads63 set the new overall Mercedes record that Renntech has surpassed it. We do not have the full details yet but are informing you of what we know. The car is a CL65 and we strongly suspect it is running some sort of modified/aftermarket turbos. With a 137 it exceeds what all other 65's on stock turbos have done so no evidence suggests this is not an OEM set. We will bring you more as we find out more. ...

      Spy photos of the next generation SLK55 have been making their way around the web. What caught our attention is that the photographers have been reported the motor the motor sounded like the twin turbo M157 V8. What does this mean? Well, it means the next generation AMG SLK may be ridiculously potent and an SL AMG usurper. Will Mercedes go this far to produce a 500+ horsepower SLK? We hope so. ...
