Mercedes-AMG

Mercedes-AMG is the new spin-off brand for all Mercedes-Benz models enhanced by the company's famed tuning arm, AMG. The division was founded as an independent business in the 1960s, but eventually joined the Mercedes-Benz family when parent Daimler took a controlling interest in the tuning house in 1990. Later, in 2005, AMG became a wholly-owned subsidiary of Daimler AG. Now, as Mercedes-AMG, the division is more clearly set apart as the BMW M rival that its fans have long counted it as.

Some might see the E43 as a step below the E63, in performance terms. It is, in fact, a price alternative to the C63 - such is its blend of performance and equipment.

2017 Mercedes-AMG C43 Coupe getaway

As a luxury German sports car, the 2017 Mercedes-AMG C43 may not scream ‘Straya’ but it is an adopted Aussie fave and I certainly didn’t mind spending Australia Day behind the wheel of it. Didn’t mind at all! Australia is continually one of the biggest markets for the Mercedes-AMG brand when it comes to sales per capita...

2017 Mercedes-AMG C63 S Cabriolet review

The Mercedes-AMG C63 S Cabriolet is a throwback to another era, with twin-turbo V8 power underpinning the muscle car-like drop-top. But has the loss of a roof compromised the convertible boulevard cruiser?

2016 BMW M4 Competition v Mercedes-AMG C63 S Track Test

Read the full article here. The battle of BMW’s M division against Mercedes-AMG has been raging on for decades.

Drag race: Australia vs The World

Australia. It's the country where there's always an insect, animal or sea creature trying to kill you. It's also the country that once housed a thriving car industry. But, instead of crying over spilt milk, we're showing the world one last time why the constant fear of death has inspired our local engineers to build a car that's itching at the chance to chew you up and spit you out...

Alfa Romeo Giulia QV v BMW M3 Competition v Mercedes-AMG C63 S comparison

For a nation renowned for its love of all things sport, it should come as no surprise this admiration and aspiration extends to what we drive.

The S4 and C43 represent the entry point into Audi's and Mercedes-AMG's performance mid-sedan ranges. Are they merely facsimiles of their go-faster stablemates, or properly desirable luxo-sports Euros in their own right? And which one is the CarAdvice pick?

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...

2015 Mercedes-amg GT S Review

I drove this car on Circuit of the Americas for 3 days in December, 2015. The GT S is fast, it tracks well, has three suspension settings and produces a burble and grunt that put a smile on the face of this Porsche fanatic. Sport Plus mode allowed for a pleasurable mix of safety and naughtiness. AMG would not all us to turn ESP off (probably for good reason)...
