Mercedes S400 Hybrid (Burberry Edition?) – 69th & Mad, NYC

April 5th, 2010 by Stu

This S400 Hybrid is decked out in plaid just in time for the Spring fashion season. We suspect the Burberry-esq livery is a wrap of some kind, not an actual custom paint job. Either way, it’s not doing any favors to the ordinarily handsome S-Class silhouette. We suspect the vehicle transformation was made for marketing purposes (Mercedes sponsors fashion week) and not out of sheer bad taste on the owner’s part. Either way, it’s butt ugly.

Thanks Jared!

Diesel Mercedes Duo – Palms Blvd, Venice CA

February 9th, 2010 by Mike

These diesel luxo tanks (W126 300SD and W123 300D) may appear unremarkable at first blush but subtle charm is actually their most endearing quality. The perfect balance of utilitarianism and refinement, these range toppers feel solid, secure and planted to the road. Power and agility, not so much. But so what – I’d drive my (future) family across the states in one and feel equally as comfortable pulling up to the valet at Avalon Beverly Hills as I would cruising down a bumpy dirt road with a full load at speed. Sure, a Civic could smoke you, but as he blows by, take a gander at the indestructible MB-Tex upholstery, beautifully designed center console, and 500k odometer reading. You’ll soon realize you’ve already won.

This two-tone cream puff, affectionately known as Ms Magnolia, was found tucked away in this Upper West Side garage. The gold spirit of ecstasy is a nice touch.

Mercedes S63 AMG – Madison Avenue, NYC

S63 AMG 1

Whether driving yourself or being driven, these opulent bruisers from AMG are likely the fastest way to get around Manhattan. Hell, they cost as much as a waterfront condo in Detroit and have more power than than a flippin Ferrari F430.

2003 Cadillac CTS – East 61st Street, NYC

July 29th, 2009 by Josh

Those who recall the unfortunate Caddy that Zigs likely jumped for joy when the silk veil came off CTS in 2002. Slow selling and utterly forgettable styling made way for sharp creases and a new found level of American sex appeal in the luxury automotive space. All hail CTS and the Art & Science design language it ushered in for the then transitioning brand that was founded in 1902 as the Cadillac Automobile Company.

Jaguar XF Supercharged – Mid Town East, NYC

February 9th, 2009 by Stu

XF replaced S-Type in the Jag line-up last year. Along with the current generation XK, this new sedan literally dragged Jaguar into thoroughly modern design. S-Type was certainly charming and attractive in a London gentleman sort of way, but people simply weren’t considering it when in the market for a mid size luxury sedan. The LED lighting effects seen here really catch the eye.
