2017 The Mercedes G Wagon

The Mercedes G ClassMercedes G Wagon

The Mercedes G Wagon, a three-decade-old off-roading symbol which has given a new charter of life. Thanks to Mercedes-Benz, which are importing updated examples of classic G-Class models into the UK.

The New Mercedes G Wagon comes available with right-hand drive and with a choice of either petrol or a diesel engine. You can now have one of this boxy, five-seat hand built G Wagen 4x4s on your drive. The revival has started a couple of special edition, for example, the rugged G 500 4×4 and the 6-wheeler giant G 63 6×6. Not content with just leaving the G-class the same, Mercedes are messing with their old retro SUV for 2018 model. The people will be glad to know that its shape and ladder chassis, with the live rear axle, will remain. However, there are are suggestions it could be more extensive to allow more interior space. As well as having a revamped cabin and the infotainment system.

Mercedes should be commended for the thoroughness of its update to the G-class. Including an M-B’s seven-speed auto gearbox and also electro-hydraulic power steering. This allows (for a two and a half tonne off-road beast) an acceptable 28.5mpg and 261g of CO2. The figures have vastly improved on from the original remake. The power in the Mercedes G Wagon is a 5.5litre V8 petrol engine built by the professionals at AMG. This produces 563bhp and 560lb ft of torque consequently.  The G-class experience remains determinedly old tech. Optional 18-inch alloys with new 60-profile winter tyres combined with rough and ready suspension for the typical urban roads. Performance is as plentiful as you can imagine in the Mercedes G Wagon. There is a little lack of steering precision but can do 0-62 in 8.9 seconds and a top speed of 119mph.

Mercedes G Wagon

While the 5.5 litre V8 AMG model is a different machine. This manages to do 0-62 in 5.4 seconds and goes on to what would be terrifying 130mph top speed.  Although whichever version you choose this is a car that you would only ever drive slowly particular over large bumps and dips in fear of being thrown out of your seat. Moreover, the Mercedes power steering doesn’t seem to be strong enough for the Mercedes G Wagon. The steering on the car is now seriously cumbersome and slow to self-centre. This vehicle with is able to withstand depths of 600mm of standing water which is more than a land rover defender. There are three sperate differential locks which help for excellent traction in slippery conditions. With an additional low range transfer case for the seven-speed gearbox.

This all adds to that incredible reputation of that G-class has in 4×4 circles. Also being known as unstoppable reliability and heftiness. Then if you regular venture off the beaten track you might just forgive the car for its characterful on-road ride and handling. The equipment levels Mercedes has not positioned this SUV to be utilitarian like its predecessor but to reach the luxury end. Which is surprising considering its rivals such as Range Rover and the sport but interestingly also the Bentley Bentayga As for trims, there is only one choice for the diesel V6 and the AMG-powered V8 there is three options. The standard G350 d model comes with essential features and 18-inch alloys. Some of these features are parking sensors, reversing camera, bi-xenon headlights, heated seats, automatic wipers leather upholstery and Mercedes infotainment system with a Logic 7 sound system.

Mercedes G Wagon AMG Models

The fierce AMG models come with the choice of three trims. The standard AMG, edition 463 and coloured edition. Also, the not so entry level G 63 comes with 20-inch alloys, red brake callipers, stainless steel door sills and a sport-tuned exhaust. Additionally, an electric sunroof and dashings of chrome along the outside. Inside is treated to a designo leather upholstery and climate control. Upgrading to a better 463 edition, your Mercedes G Wagon will come with even more luxurious such as 21ich alloys, stainless steel underbody guard and additional protective headlight guards. Interior also gains two-tone leather upholstery and rear TV screen with a tuner. Includes all the basic stuff, and driver safety aids like blind spot assist and adaptive cruise control.

The colour edition G63s are essentially in the usual standard AMG SUV in garish colour combinations. Although there is no need to buy one of these if you think it’s a luxury SUV. There are other particular commercial vehicles are significantly more refined and a lot more comfortable. The Range Rover and Bently are just about the most comfortable cars you can buy. As a go off-roader anywhere now with additionally added creature comforts the Mercedes G Wagon is a great car. The G-Class has its place for those who can afford the premium and its certainly got a strong character to burn and provides a real sense of occasion. In conclusion as an everyday road car, it is both antiquated and compromised.

The Market For Used Car On Finance

While looking for a car to buy, your main priority is to save money and get the best possible car for yourself. Now, brand new cars are expensive even if you plan on getting a car on finance or car loan. However, if you look towards buying a used car, you will be surprised with how much money you can save. Used cars have started taking over quite some space in the car market in the UK. The choice has gained popularity because you end up getting a decent car at a lesser price. However, many would prefer to get a used car on finance as well. Simply because you are going to pay the money over a period and do not have to worry about making the payment all at once. A lot of car buyers have the question if it is even possible to get a used car on finance or not? The answer is yes.

Quite a few car dealers have opened car financing for used cars in the UK. It is important that you find a good car dealer to guide you. The process of getting a used car on finance is the same as getting a brand new car on finance. You can get a car dealer or a bank to finance for the used car. But before jumping into any contract, check out interest rates across different dealers and banks. Usually, car dealers have higher interest rates than banks, but you can find attractive offers in the market to help you as well.

The benefit of getting a used car on finance is that you do not have to suffer the loss of depreciation. You pay a lower price than the initial price which means that your monthly instalments will also be lower. Moreover, different companies offer different interest rates for used cars. Choose the one with the lowest.

Opting for a used car on finance is beneficial since you can get a recent car model for yourself without having to pay the initial high price. Try to find used cars in excellent condition to avail a good car finance offer.

Which Cars Sell For the Most Cash?

The automotive industry is booming and with that come many unexpected changes to the market. Vehicles that were once extremely valuable have fallen down the list and other contenders have excelled, stealing top spots in the process. Although the industry is unpredictable, as it’s constantly changing, there are a few things you can do to ensure that you get the most for your old car.

First of all you must understand that the model of your car is only a small part of the bigger picture. It does have an effect on how much cash you will get; however, other factors also have to be considered. For example, many people don’t realise that the condition of your vehicle plays a huge role in how much the car is worth. The better your car looks, the more you are likely going to receive for it. This is why it’s crucial you take good care of your car whilst you’re still using it, in order to ensure that you are going to get more cash for it down the line.

It’s impossible to predict which vehilces will be popular in the future; therefore, you can’t know for sure whether your car will retain most of its value overtime or not. Instead of worrying about this too much, you should instead focus on keeping your current car in good shape until the time comes for you to part ways with it.

You must understand that it’s rare for a car’s value to increase as time progresses. Certain vehicles such as classics and limited edition will experience this, but most standard cars will only lose value the more you drive them.

It’s pointless therefore to hope keep your old car for as long as possible in hopes of its value increasing. If you are in possession of an unwanted vehicle, you will be much better off selling it sooner rather than later. If you want to get the most for your old car follow our simple tips and go into the experience with an open mind. Manage your expectations and you’ll have a much more rewarding experience.

Tesla Model 3 Deliveries Delayed Until 2018

Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past year, you are likely familiar with the Tesla model 3 – a car that made headlines and broke records by getting around half a million orders within days of getting announced.

Originally first deliveries were scheduled for 2017; however, it emerged today that they have been delayed until mid-2018 or later.

The news doesn’t necessarily come as a surprise as many were wondering about whether Tesla was capable of meeting deadlines, considering it isn’t capable of producing that many cars at one.

As orders began piling up, it started to become apparent that Tesla wouldn’t be able to deliver the Tesla Model 3 in 2017 as first advertised.

Many customers will likely be disappointed, but considering just how much of an impression the car has made when it was announced, the excitement certainly outweighs the disappointment. Read more at evo.co.uk

Electric cars have been gaining momentum in the automotive industry in the recent years, with Tesla at the forefront of the movement. By introducing the Model 3, which is the first affordable mass produced electric car, Tesla has raised the bar for all other carmakers.

The Model 3 looks fantastic and its performance is just as great. It received universal acclaim upon its debut, and remains in high demand.

Tesla certainly knows what it’s doing, and the delay could actually not be that bad of a thing. It will give Tesla more time to produced and deliver the Model 3, meaning a slightly more polished product will be sold.

It’s better for Tesla to take all the time it needs rather than deliver something that’s unfished and unsafe.

The future looks bright for the brand so it will be very interesting to see what else Tesla has in store for us in the future.

The time has never been more perfect to sell your old car, and invest in an electric car. We are entering a new era, so become a part of it.

What are your thoughts on the delay? Are you disappointed with Tesla, or do you understand its decision? Tell us how you feel in the comments section down below.

500th LaFerrari is being created.

500th LaFerrari to help the victims of recent Italian earthquake

The Ferrari LaFerrari featured a 499-unit production run which is being increased to 500 units. The money made from the sale of the final car going to the victims of the recent Italian earthquake which occurred just a few days ago.

The 950bhp LaFerrari finished its production run in 2015, but one extra model is being made to be sold at auction. With such a small production number, it’s no surprise that examples which make it onto the used market carry a heavy premium over the car’s £1.15 million price.

Used LaFerrari currently sell for between £2.5m and £3m with some even reaching above £4m, although it’s likely that the car value of the 500th may exceed this considerably.

A source at Ferrari said that the original demand for LaFerrari was more than double the supply, and this is the last opportunity for a buyer to own a LaFerrari from new which will create a lot of opportunities for the people who have enough money to buy it new and own something that will be for a good cause but also to make themselves feel special as the LaFerrari will most likely feature some sort of small detail change in the design to signify that it is a special, final edition.

The drop-top LaFerrari, named Aperta, will be revealed at the Paris motor show in a few weeks, but the 500th LaFerrari will be the very last coupé version built.

The last LaFerrari is being built to benefit victims of the recent earthquake in central Italy, which struck on 24th August and claimed the lives of hundreds while leaving thousands more homeless.

Each standard LaFerrari carries a plaque bearing the words ‘Limited edition [car number]/499’, or the car’s number in the production run, but a source at Ferrari indicated that the 500th example may carry a plaque demonstrating its special status as the very last car, sold to help the victims of the earthquake.

Ferrari have previous experience with helping provide auctions for charities and previously auctioned an Enzo after the Boxing Day Tsunami in 2004. That car carried a similar plaque, so it’s likely that this LaFerrari will be the same. The winning bidder may also get to choose the colour and spec of the car; however, nothing is for certain at this point.

Elemental RP1 makes its debut

The 2016 Goodwood Festival of Speed may be over, but there’s one vehicle that made its debut at event that hasn’t quite left our minds yet. Elemental RP1, is a unique supercar, designed with speed and performance in mind. Although, it looks like something you’d expect to see on the tracks, it’s actually road-legal.

Speed and performance are two things that any car fanatic will tell you play a big role in the world of supercars. Pushing the boundaries has always been an important part of the car-making process, and it remains a goal many manufactures still have to this day.

Due to the fact that technology is more advanced than ever before, we’re seeing big progress being made on the supercar front at the moment.

Capable of going from 0 to 60mph in a mere 2.5 seconds, it could be the most capable production vehicle ever built.

Bugatti Veyron is normally regarded as the leader when it comes to speed; however, the Elemental RP1 is proving itself to be a serious contender in the field.

Unveiled at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, the British supercar is a great example of engineering done right.

It looks fascinating and different, which straightaway gives an impression of how powerful it might be. Although appearances aren’t everything, when it comes to cars, aesthetics play a huge role. OF course, a car doesn’t have to be visually-stunning or futuristic-looking to offer great performance, as the two are not exclusive, but the truth is that aesthetically-pleasing cars are simply much more fun to look at.

Whether the Elemental RP1 will beat the Veyron in the future, remains to be seen, but there’s no reason why the two can’t coexist in the market. They’re both fantastic cars that offer incredible performance, so at the end of the day it doesn’t really matter, which on is faster.

Yeah, we get it – it’s always fun to have the official title, but at the same time if have a fantastic vehicle to offer, none of the other stuff should matter. Letting the car’s speak for themselves is probably the best thing manufactures can do, especially when they have something truly unique on their hands.

What do you think of the Elemental RP1? Are you a fan of the car or do you prefer the Bugatti Veyron? Let us know your thoughts and return soon for more fun articles from the enticing world of supercars.
