- Mercedes is getting into the holiday spirit by releasing a new sleigh configurator that enables users to create the ultimate ride for Santa Claus.
Visitors will be able to select between three different body styles including a Silver Arrow, a G-Class, and an F 015. From there, users will be presented a choice of several Christmas themed colors such as Reindeer Nose red, Pine Needle green, and Silent Night black. Once that step has been completed, visitors can select between three different types of "runners" including Avant-garde, AMG, and Exclusive.
The sleigh can also be customized with an assortment of drive options including 4MATIC (reindeer), hybrid (horses and reindeer), and AMG (steroid infused reindeer with red glowing eyes).

Mercedes-AMG is proud to introduce the V12-powered S65 Cabriolet, representing the latest member to join the ever growing S-Class family.
Despite the ongoing downsizing trend, Daimler isn’t willing to let the massive V12 go and the company will actually boost production of the 6.0-liter unit.

- Even before landing in Innsbruck, Austria on my way to drive the 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLS, I’ll admit I already had some expectations about the vehicle, both positive and negative. Firstly, there were reservations about the ride and handling. Past experience tells me that driving such a massive SUV can feel a bit like riding a bull.

- Audi has announced plans to showcase a mysterious concept car at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas.
The model will be shown on January 6th but little is known about it. However, given the show's focus on technology, it will likely be a high-tech concept which could have an autonomous driving system.
Besides the mystery model, Audi of America President Scott Keogh and Audi Head of Electrics/Electronics Ricky Hudi will present the "latest technologies, products and megatrends in the areas of electrification, digitalization and piloted driving." The automaker will also have a number of technology exhibits which provide a glimpse into the automotive future which Audi says is being influenced more than ever by the electronics field.
While the Consumer Electronics Show might seem like an odd place to see vehicle introductions, it has become pretty common in recent years. Faraday Future will use the upcoming show to introduce a new...
