Six years after his death, Michael Jackson is still the best selling artist of all times. Although he claimed to be a “Speed Demon” in his 1989 video, the King of Pop was rarely seen behind the wheel. But he chose his cars well. He drove a Mercedes-Benz for a whole decade. The superstar chose the three-pointed star for his daily rides. Starting 1985, Michael Jackson used to travel the 19-mile (31 kilometers) distance from his Encino home to his Los Angeles studio in his Mercedes-Benz 500 SEL. In 1988, he changed his home, moving in his fantasy land estate, the Neverland Ranch, in Los Olivos, close to Santa Barbara, California. But the car came with him. In the early 90s, the hit-maker gave up driving himself on public roads, because he had the feeling that everybody was staring. We wonder what gave him this idea… Instead, he used the car only for driving around his 2,600 acres estate in Los Olivos, California. And he definitely had a lot to drive around. His Neverland … [Read more...] about A car for a King! Michael Jackson drove a Mercedes-Benz

BMW has chosen a Mercedes-Benz dealership for its latest advertisement of the X2. The Bavarian crossover pulls in front of a few Mercedes-Benz SUVs and the driver drops a microphone on the asphalt. “A real star rolls out in gold” is the message accompanying the 20-second video posted on Instagram, while the soundtrack plays a hip-hop song. At the front, there is the Galvanic Gold BMW X2. The driver puts the tinted window down and lets a microphone drop on the ground, right in front of four Mercedes-Benz GLAs, all black. A sales agent inspects the cars and stares in surprise at the extravagant appearance. “I know you’re mad when you see me” say the lyrics of the song, proceeding with “You wanna be me” before the X2 driver starts off. It is an amusing approach showing that the Bavarians have a great sense of humour and are now waiting for the reply of the rivals in Stuttgart, in the name of a one-century competition. The advertisement was shot … [Read more...] about BMW advertises its X2 in a Mercedes-Benz dealership

The mad wrenches at Brabus know a thing or two about taking a modern Mercedes-Benz and twisting the wick until tremendous power figures are produced.

Overview Built in 1893, the Falaknuma Palace in Hyderabad has stood tall on a hillock overlooking Hyderabad for more than a century now.
