Mercedes-Benz has pulled the cover off the 2014 S-class at a media presentation in Hamburg, Germany this week. The 2014 S550 comes with a 449 horsepower twin-turbocharged, a 4.7-liter V-8 with 516 lb-ft of torque.
The new S-Class will launch sometime in September of this year with an estimated price of $95,000.
A couple of years back an idea was suggested to Detroit Mayor Dave Bing that a statue of the American Sci-Fi movie character RoboCop movie would make a great ambassador for the city of Detroit. Someone took the project and raised over $60,000 to actually build a 10-foot-tall statue of one of the city’s most famous icons.
The statue is on its way to Detroit, where it will be cast and manufactured in bronze by Venus Bronze Works.

NASA Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) has released an incredible time lapse video that shows three years of the sun’s activity in just three minutes. This video shows those three years of the sun at a pace of two images per day.
SDO’s Atmospheric Imaging Assembly (AIA) captures a shot of the sun every 12 seconds in 10 different wavelengths. The images shown here are based on a wavelength of 171 Angstroms, which is in the extreme ultraviolet range and shows solar material at around 600,000 Kelvin. In this wavelength it is easy to see the sun’s 25-day rotation as well as how solar activity has increased over three years. Watch the video below.
