1928 Mercedes-Benz 26/120/180 S-Type Sports Tourer driving the supercharged supercar of its day

This most Germanic of motor cars has a particularly British back story, as Mark Dixon finds out.

Editor's comment
RICHARD PEARCE

‘Doing our best to dodge the springtime showers, we rolled out the almost centuryold Mercedes-Benz 36/220 and positioned it in the crisp sunlight. At this point, the beauty of the car did all the hard work – it was almost impossible to take a bad photo.’ Richard’s superb photography accompanies Mark Dixon’s feature.​

2024 Mercedes-AMG EQE 53 SUV X294

It’s not a seven-seater. It doesn’t have a massive boot. It’s certainly not a serious off-roader. And yet the AMG version of the SUV version of the EQE is actually a highly competent and often very enjoyable car. It overcomes the considerable odds of excess weight and eye-watering price to offer power and torque aplenty, giving almost eerily accessible near-supercar performance, yet also a spine-friendly ride and a feature- laden cabin. And it feels built to last. Sure, the weight does ultimately limit the car’s dynamic agility on winding and hilly roads, and its efficiency is nothing to crow about. But if you’re thinking about a BMW iX M60 or Tesla Model X Plaid, make sure you think about this too.
