Mercedes SLS AMG and Golf Ball

Mercedes SLS AMG and golf, this is the usual combination we expected to see! This time, Mercedes SLS AMG and golf are doing something totally different. David Coulthard was driving the Mercedes SLS AMG and Jake Shepherd was hitting the golf ball. The combination still does not sound that awkward!

Actually, this happened! While David Coulthard driving the Mercedes SLS AMG at 180 kph (120 mph), Jake Shepherd hit the golf ball at the speed of 285 kph (178 mph). And, David caught the ball by the cockpit of Mercedes SLS AMG. May be ball caught the SLS AMG as well. I am a bit confused therefore, I include the press release.

David, who was driving the awesome 571hp Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Roadster at 120mph, caught a golf ball in the cockpit of the moving car which was 275 metres from the tee, and hit by Jake at an astonishing 178mph. This amazing achievement secured the world record for the furthest golf shot caught in a moving car in only the second attempt of the day.

Mercedes GL 63 AMG Photos

Mercedes GL 63 AMG is finally revealed. Unfortunately, there are no information regarding to technical details. Only images were released to Mercedes-AMG Global Fan Page. However, Mercedes GL 63 AMG will definitely have the same engine that is available on Mercedes ML 63 AMG; 5.5-lt V8 petrol engine produces 525 PS of power and 700 nm of torque. Engine will be coupled with an AMG Speedshift Plus 7-G Tronic automatic gearbox and definitely the top speed will be limited to 250 kph (155 mph).  Unfortunately, I cannot guess about the consumption or CO2 levels. As soon as the more detailed will be published, I will revise the post. Until that time, enjoy the photos.

Here is the official technical details, Mercedes GL 63 AMG has more power and torque than ML 63 AMG. So my prediction was not accurately correct.

The key data at a glance:

5461 cc
Bore x stroke
98.0 x 90.5 mm
Compression ratio
410 kW (557 hp) at 5250-5750 rpm
Max. torque
760 Nm at 2000-5000 rpm
Engine weight (dry)
204 kg
Fuel consumption, NEDC combined
12.3 l/100 km
CO2 emissions
288 g/km
Acceleration 0-100 km/h
4.9 s
Top speed
250 km/h*

My opinion about Mercedes GL 63 AMG is, a bit senseless vehicle. Because, Mercedes GL is promoted as an off-road biased SUV and it is one of the biggest SUV on the market and does not have a very strong sales figures. Thus, it is a relative high risk to introduce Mercedes GL 63 AMG, when there are very vague competitors are available and the demand to huge big SUV with aggressive engines! It is better to keep Mercedes GL exclusive rather than engaging with AMG.

In addition, the exterior design of Mercedes GL is not biased on sporty character like Mercedes ML. And, extending AMG brand to each product is not a very good as well. Because, this will reduce the exclusivity of AMG. If Mercedes can keep the AMG brand in fewer models, it will be more beneficial in future to sustain AMG's exclusive image.

I hope it won’t share the same faith of Mercedes R 63 AMG; a bit of failure! And don't forget, Mercedes GL 63 AMG was cancelled before going to production, when Mercedes GL was firstly introduced to market. It is obvious that Mercedes does not wish to take risk with an aggressive exterior design with Mercedes GL 63 AMG scare some of the customers. Mercedes GL 63 AMG is the only calm looking AMG!

BMW Zagato Coupe Photos and Videos

BMW Zagato Coupe, it does sound Italian and it is kind of Italian. Zagato is an Italian design consultancy company and worked with many car brands for long decades. Recently, BMW and Zagato designed a new car BMW Zagato Coupe.

BMW Zagato Coupe is based on a BMW Z4 and all exterior design is hand-crafted aluminium. The rear-end panel is totally transparent and two individual exhaust are positioned outer edges of the Zagato Coupe. And the most distinctive part is the Z shaped front radiator grill!

The exterior paint start from black, a shimmering layer of metallic silver, and then six ultra-thin layers of specially design red colour is applied. And it is called, Rosso Vivace.

As you can understand from the short description of BMW Zagato Coupe, it is not an ordinary BMW. So, it likely to be powered by an upgraded engine. Unfortunately, BMW did not release any information to Zagato Coupe’s engine specifications. I assume that, it will be an upgraded 3-lt petrol engine. And also, I am expecting a significant weight loss after using hand-crafted aluminium.

Lastly, I noticed that BMW Zagato Coupe have some inspirational parts from BMW’s concept car GINA from 2008!
