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.

A lap of Ascari Circuit in Spain : Mercedes-AMG C 63 S Coupe Test Drive

Nestled in the mountains at Ronda, just a stone’s throw from the Iberian coastline, the 5.4-kiloemtre Circuito Acari – or the Ascari Circuit – is not merely Spain’s longest track. Instead, it’s a veritable resort-style theme park for petrolheads. A popular venue for European car launches thanks to the sunkist local climate, we recently took to its challenging curves at the recent Mercedes-AMG C 63 S Coupe launch...

2015 Mercedes-AMG GT S v Porsche 911 GT3 Comparison Review

Porsche 911 GT3 — it’s the modern day pinnacle of track focussed motoring. It’s hard-edged, fast and sounds utterly epic. With a top speed of 315km/h and a 0-100km/h sprint of just 3.5-seconds, the seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox teams with a 3.8-litre naturally aspirated six-cylinder engine to produce a crazy 350kW of power and 440Nm of torque...

This is a continuation of our two-part comparison between the Audi RS3 and Mercedes-AMG A45. For the road test component and finer details of the cars and this comparison’s setup, click here. Less than a decade ago it would have been hard to imagine that a 2.0-litre engine would come from the factory with 280kW of power and offer a 0-100km/h time of 4...

Audi RS3 v Mercedes-AMG A45 Comparison: Road Test

The Audi RS3 is going to win. It just is, there’s no doubt about it. That was the mental block and extreme bias this reviewer faced internally, one early morning before this comparison had even begun. You see, when the Audi RS3 came out in late 2015 and yours truly got behind the wheel around some historic Targa Tasmania roads, it was a great feeling of supreme serenity...

Mercedes-AMG GT S v Porsche 911 GT3 : Comparison Review

The Porsche 911 GT3 and its more hardcore brother, the GT3 RS, are not sports cars for the faint hearted.

Details about the next-generation Mercedes-AMG E63 and E63 S have been leaked online ahead of its debut later this year. Under the bonnet, the new E63 and E63 S will ditch the current model's 5.5-litre twin-turbo V8.

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)...
