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...
