Driven | 2017 Mercedes-AMG S63 Cabriolet

Everyone was complaining about 2016 being “one of those years” but if we take a look back at what I tested, I would disagree with them completely. Fast forward to January 2017 and the first car I received to test was the sumptuously sexy Mercedes-AMG S63 Cabriolet. If this is how it has begun, 2017 should be quite the year!When I first saw the S63 Coupe revealed the first thing that popped into my mind was when are they going to chop the roof off and offer a Cabriolet variant. Mercedes has built a two-door version of its range-topping S-class for more than three decades, but it has not …Read entire story

Porsche GT3 RS Crashes On Wet Mountain Pass In Cape Town South Africa

Porsche GT3 RS Crashes On Wet Mountain Pass In Cape Town South Africa

It is never nice to see a car in a damaged state and it hurts even more when the car in question is the highly sought after Porsche 991 GT3 RS. The incident happened yesterday around 1pm and although details are not clear, looking at the wet conditions I would assume the driver lost control of the car.The car left the road and collided with the embankment causing extensive damage to the front and rear of the vehicle.

With these machines being so special I would think it would be repaired rather than totaled. Pics and …Read entire story
