Joel and Ethan Coen directed their first commercial for the big game since 2002, an amusing spot for Mercedes-AMG featuring a bar filled with stereotypically tough bikers, and a guy who rudely blocks in their motorcycles with his fancy pants German sportscar.
These bad boy luxury sedans have a new 4.0L twin-scroll turbo V8, with 563 hp or 603 hp in the “S” edition, launching this beast from 0-to-60 in 3.3 to 3.4s. A wet-clutch 9-speed gearbox cuts weight and improves response times, and cylinder deactivation improves fuel economy.
AMG takes its already amazing GT car and turns it into a green monster. Spending much of its development time on the Nürburgring, its 4.0L biturbo V8 now has 577hp, 516 lb-ft. of torque, and track-ready suspension and aerodynamics. We simply love those new side air vents.
