Brand new Mercedes-Benz AMG C63 S



Brabus, one of the most famous tuners when it comes to Mercedes-Benz cars, decided to extract even more horsepower from the 4.0-liter V8 twin-turbo that come with the AMG C63 S.

To achieve this, they have switch to the B40-600 PowerXtra power kit that allows the car to generate the extra 88 hp, thus the total power of this coupé is a whopping 591 hp. Additionally, the torque has increased by 73 pound-feet of torque to reach an earth shattering 590 ft-lbs.

With this big change in the heart of the C63 AMG S, stepping on the throttle pedal will take you from 0-100 km / h in 3.8 seconds,  achieving a top speed of 300 km / h while at it.
In addition to these mechanical changes, Brabus also worked on the body of the C63 in order to substantially improve aerodynamics. 

If one looks at the list of new component highlights, the redesign of the front fascia with larger air inlets, a splitter, a diffuser and a rear spoiler carbon fiber immediately pop to grab your attention, the car looks amazing.

Complement the aesthetics with a set of 20-inch wheels featuring carbon fiber inlays in each of the five spokes, Continental, Pirelli or Yokohama tires measuring 255/30  at the front and 275/30 on the rear.

Inside the C63 AMG Brabus has placed ornaments of steel, leather, alcantara, wood and carbon fiber together with optional aluminum shift paddles and a speedometer with a maximum of 340 km / h.

What do you think about the new Mercedes?

The 11 best performance cars of 2015

The 11 best performance cars of 2015




2015 Audi R8
Balanced all-wheel-drive handling and a fantastic dual-clutch transmission make the R8 one of the most usable supercars.


2015 BMW M3 / 2015 BMW M4
In either body style, BMW's archetypal M cars love quaffing long uphill runs at the horizon with gusto, shaving a hundred miles per hour undramatically off with the carbon-ceramics, and settling firmly and predictably into uphill 30-degree bends without a knee bent.

2015 Chevrolet Corvette
Seriously fast, incredibly fun, and a monstrous value, the 2015 Corvette Stingray sets a benchmark for performance.


2015 Ferrari 458 Italia
The Italia is one of the most accessible yet capable high-performance cars to ever be produced by the Italian sports-car maker.


2015 Jaguar XK
t may be off the market, but we can't help to notice the XK still--it has a sleek and sexy shell, and offers a uniquely British experience.


2015 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT
The swan-song SLS AMG GT is a controllable, manageable, and easy-to-drive super-performance car.

2015 Nissan GT-R
You won't believe it until you experience it. The 2015 Nissan GT-R is capable of astonishingly high levels of grip — and all the performance numbers to match.


2015 Porsche 911
It's much bigger these days, but the Porsche 911's outline still carries the charm of the original.

Mustang History

Have you ever wondered how was the Mustang created? Well... Check this out! 

The Ford Mustang is an American automobile manufactured by the Ford Motor Company. It was originally based on the platform of the second generation North American Ford Falcon, acompact car.The original Ford Mustang I four-seater concept car had evolved into the 1963 Mustang II two-seater prototype, which Ford used to pretest how the public would take interest in the first production Mustang which was released as the 1964 1/2, with a slight variation on the frontend and a top that was 2.7 inches shorter than the 1963 Mustang II.



First generation (1964–1973)

As Lee Iacocca's assistant general manager and chief engineer, Donald N. Frey was the head engineer for the T-5 project—supervising the overall development of the car in a record 18 months[21]—while Iacocca himself championed the project as Ford Division general manager. The T-5 prototype was a two-seat, mid-mounted engine roadster. This vehicle employed the German Ford Taunus V4 engine and was very similar in appearance to the much later Pontiac Fiero.
It was claimed that the decision to abandon the two-seat design was in part due to the low sales experienced with the 2-seat 1955 Thunderbird. To broaden market appeal it was later remodeled as a four-seat car (with full space for the front bucket seats, as originally planned, and a rear bench seat with significantly less space than was common at the time). 

Second generation (1974–1978)

Lee Iacocca, who had been one of the forces behind the original Mustang, became President of Ford Motor Company in 1970 and ordered a smaller, more fuel-efficient Mustang for 1974. Initially it was to be based on the Ford Maverick, but ultimately was based on the Ford Pinto subcompact.
The new model, called the "Mustang II", was introduced two months before the first 1973 oil crisis, and its reduced size allowed it to compete against imported sports coupés such as the JapaneseToyota Celica and the European Ford Capri (then Ford-built in Germany and Britain, sold in U.S. by Mercury as a captive import car). First-year sales were 385,993 cars, compared with the original Mustang's twelve-month sales record of 418,812.

Nice read.

HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif. -- If you see a Chevrolet Corvair cruising around this beach town, there's a good chance you'll find Bill Stephens behind the wheel.
"I've had 23 Corvair cars and vans," says Stephens, as he showed off his sunshine-yellow 1962 Corvair pickup."I've been a Corvair freak for a long time."
It's easy to see why when you take a close look at the Corvair Rampside that he brought to a weekly car show here. Not only is it unique because it's a truck-style version of the controversial Corvair, but also because of its unique feature: a ramp that folds out from the side off the truck. It was a practical feature for its time.
The Rampside has almost the same engine sound as the regular Corvair. Altogether, it's a vehicle that feels a little bit space age.
Of course, back in its heyday, the Corvair hardly could have seemed hip. Consumer crusader Ralph Nader took on General Motors over safety isssues surrounding the rear-engine Corvair car, saying it was more susceptible to crashes than other cars..
Today, those battles are over. Instead, Stephens focuses his admiration on the truck's design.
"I thought this was the neatest thing that anybody ever thought of," Stephens says.

Vehicle Transportation Taxes in Canada


Vehicle auto transport is a business that most of the times has customers all across the country. That situation may be confusing when it comes to the pricing of the service. Canada's taxing system has a different tax percentage in every province and territory. Customers may wonder, which tax will apply to my purchase when I ship my car?

Vehicle Transportation Taxes in Canada  

Auto transport is not a service that you purchase and receive in the same place, so it can cover one, two, or more provinces on every trip. When shipping your vehicle the taxing that applies is the delivery province taxing system. The reason for this is that the car shipping service is not complete until the vehicle is delivered.
