It’s been a busy first two weeks for the automotive world. Car shows were held, new cars were launched and some even made its debut on the tracks. Besides unveiling the latest E-Class coupé at the Detroit Motor Show, Mercedes also took the veils off its new AMG baby: the GT C coupé. Below, you’ll see one of the 50 special “Edition 50” versions, which is painted in a unique gunmetal grey to commemorate Mercedes-AMG‘s 50th anniversary.

Meanwhile, British luxury automobile firm Bentley looks set to take over the roads in lavishly with the fastest car in its fleet. McLaren also unleashed its latest monster, the special edition MSO Carbon Series LT. Only limited to 25 examples, its sleek carbon fibre body sees a glossy finish, and is the third model to carry the ‘LT’ designation.

The timeless 911 Targa also gets a makeover thanks to Singer Vehicle Designs, a bespoke tuning company that gives old Porsches million-dollar makeovers. We did, however, get serious vacation/car envy seeing the Mercedes-Benz GLE250d navigate through the mountainous roads of Iceland, while we were stuck here in sunny, humid Singapore.
