2017 Mercedes-AMG GT R track review

The most hardcore road-going GT in the AMG range, the R is a snarling, bellowing beast. Test driving it on-track is a proper test of both machine and driver.

AMG Project One and Smart Vision EQ ForTwo both show the future for Mercedes-Benz

The Mercedes-AMG Project One hypercar might have stolen all the limelight at the Mercedes-Benz unveiling before the official opening of the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show, but the diminutive Smart Vision EQ ForTwo is just as important to the future DNA of Daimler globally according to the man who should know...

Mercedes-AMG Project One shows its caboose to the competition

Days before its global unveiling, and less than a week since its last appearance, a new view of the Mercedes-AMG Project One hypercar has been handed down from on high. This latest shot offers a suitably grainy, reconnaissance-like glimpse of the car that will enter as AMG's response to the LaFerrari, Mclaren P1, Porsche 918… and the upcoming Aston Martin Valkyrie...

Mercedes-AMG to launch 53 range with hybrid inline six-cylinder - report

Mercedes-AMG is reportedly prepping a new model line based on the new Mercedes-Benz 'M256' straight-six petrol engine. As with most models in the AMG and Mercedes-Benz ranges, the numerical suffix bears no relation to the engine's displacement, instead it serves to indicate where within the power and prestige hierarchy the car fits...

2018 Mercedes-AMG GT pricing: Roadster joins local line-up

Australian pricing for the new 2018 Mercedes-AMG GT Roadster, unveiled in September last year and driven by CarAdvice in March just gone, has now been revealed.

Mercedes-Benz X-Class could gain AMG styling pack, but won’t get a V8

The all-new Mercedes-Benz X-Class may have set chins wagging with its not-like-the-concept styling, but the German company could soon introduce a more heavily stylised version of the dual-cab ute. The head of Mercedes-Benz Vans, Volker Mornhinweg, told Australian media at the launch of the new X-Class ute there is no definite decision on whether there’ll be any involvement from the company’s performance side-arm, Mercedes-AMG...


World's greatest driving roads: Highway 89 A, Arizona, USA

World's greatest driving roads: Highway 89 A, Arizona, USA

I've just discovered that I love desert. No, not double-cream-topped, Belgian-choc-filled, Heston Blumenthal-frozen Masterchef-style dessert, but the sun-scorched, dusty, cactus-smattered, don't-go-wandering-off-or-you'll-die environment of America's Wild West. On my first-ever visit, I've become smitten by Arizona, and all of the (ahem) good, the bad and the ugliness it crams inside 300,000 square kilometres...

Mercedes-AMG: Say goodbye to atmo engines, and you can forget about diesel

At this year's New York motor show, Australian media spent time with Tobias Moers, the head of Mercedes-AMG - and chief among the topics discussed was performance, specifically how best to achieve it. In recent times, petrol engines have become so efficient, so technologically adept and so clean-running, that there is hope we may one day return to the glory days of naturally-aspirated petrol engines, even if they do run an electric motor of some sort to help things along...

2017 Geneva motor show: Epic from-the-show-floor experience

If you don't already know, Geneva is in Switzerland. And while some Aussies might miss having motor shows here in Oz, few will see that as enough of an excuse to splash out to attend a major international one. Luckily, this year's 2017 Geneva motor show (on until March 19) was my first, and it was so good, I didn't want anyone to miss out...

Read the full article here. The battle of BMW’s M division against Mercedes-AMG has been raging on for decades. The Bavarians have never gone for a power war with the folks from Affalterbach, preferring instead to focus on a power to weight ratio formula that sees them maintain the purists status amongst the hooligan nature of old AMGs...

Mercedes-AMG to adopt new grille treatment to further differentiate sporty models from standard ones

Mercedes-AMG will move to differentiate itself further from Mercedes-Benz through design, with the sporty sub-brand set to adopt a polarizing new vertical bar grille design to its go-fast models. With such a proliferation of Mercedes-AMG models, not to mention AMG line packages for non-performance models, it can be hard to pick a real AMG model from a hotted-up regular car, but that won’t be the case for much longer according to Mercedes-Benz chief design officer, Gorden Wagener...
