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.

2016 Mercedes-AMG C63 S Coupe Review: Track test

Road trip: New York City

When you think of ultimate driving destinations, New York City is probably one of the last places to come to mind. Anyone who has been to the Big Apple, or even seen it on television, will probably know that even in a taxi it can be an extremely frustrating experience: the traffic is deadly, and stop-start cues can last for hours...

BMW M2 v Audi RS3 v Mercedes-AMG A45: Track battle

We have received countless emails about three of the hottest sub-$100k performance cars on the market. So, we're going to finally settle it. Which is quicker around the track? We pit the BMW M2 against the Audi RS3 and Mercedes-AMG A45. We get former World Rally Car driver Chris Atkinson behind the wheel to set lap times and figure out which is quickest...

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...

Audi RS3 v BMW M2 v Mercedes-AMG A45 Comparison: Track Test

What’s the fastest performance car you can buy for under $100,000? That’s the question we keep getting asked over and over again. The number of contenders is rather varied and the argument remains that you can certainly buy a $50,000 car and spend another $50k to make it supercar fast, but ultimately, there are only three cars that have the credibility to make it to this test...

Audi RS3 vs Mercedes-AMG A45 Comparison: Dynamic Test

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...

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)...
