For Europe only

If I am being honest, I am not a real big fan of the style most Mercedes cars off this side of the SLA. I do really like the new CLA Edition 1 though, it looks very cool. The car will be a limited edition only available for 12 months in Europe. No love for the US Mercedes fans out there.

The CLA is a 4-door sedan and will launch in the Spring starting at 34,402.50 euros for the CLA 180. The car gets mountain gray, cosmos black, night black, cirrus white, or silver colors. Inside the car will offer leather with black microfiber Dinamica with yellow top stitching.

The top of the line CLA Edition 1 will be the CLA 250. It will pack a 2.0L turbo 4-cylinder with 211 hp and 350 lb-ft of torque. It promises 0-62mph in 6.7 seconds and AWD. the car uses a DCT 7-speed transmission. The cars will also get sport tuned AMG suspension. A CLA 45 AMG version is also offered. The CLA 250 Edition 1 starts at 44,625 euros.

Naturally aspirated engines seem destined for the endangered species’ list as forced induction makes its way into nearly every mainstream category.

It’s a direct replacement for the SL350 roadster with the only real change centered around the new 3.0-liter, twin-turbocharged V-6.The new biturbo V-6 might be down on displacement from its 3.5-liter predecessor, but it makes up for it with power — 26 extra horses an ...

Crazy. However, Mercedes-Benz might be taking steps in the oppos ...

Vanishing Astons? Current DB9, Vantage Fail to Meet Airbag Regs; U.S. Models in Jeopardy

Aug 20 2014 2:39pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

According to petitions the automaker sent to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Aston Martin would have revealed the next-gen DB9 and Vantage this month (and very likely at Pebble) were there not years of losses and “substantial economic hardship.” In June, we ...
