You’ve probably heard about the ‘2022 everything crash’ but the pre-owned market for vintage cars didn’t get the memo. And it’s worse than you think. Or better, depending on your point of view. The insanity has reached new levels with this 1955 Mercedes-Benz 300 SLR Coupé, which just sold for $142 million. Yup. 142. Million. … More The most expensive car in the history of the world
On November 28, 2021 Virgil Abloh passed away at the age of 41. During his relatively short time on Earth, the American designer strongly influenced the fashion world and left a long-lasting legacy that changed the way we look at design in general.

I apologise in advance for the slightly silly and whimsical headline but the truth is the EQS has been with us for a few months ago and I still haven’t decided whether I like it or not.

It’s called the … More Will all future Mercedes models look like this?

They’ve also released one teaser image and the shape looks interesting, almost like a fastback four-door coupe. Mercedes CEO Ola Källenius … More The upcoming Mercedes EQXX will be a ‘software-driven prototype’, whatever that means
I feel like at Mercedes-Benz, they are making it up as they go with the EQ line up. They launched the EQC a few years ago, which is essentially just another SUV, and then they realised it would make more sense to build a parallel range of cars, with one electric car for every equivalent … More The EQB is the electric B-Class we never asked for (jk, I actually like it)

I tried … More Here’s why Virgil Abloh’s Geländewagen is one of Mercedes’ most important concept cars
