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.

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...

2017 Mercedes-AMG E63 S review

This is the one we've been waiting for, the 600hp AWD Mercedes-AMG E63 S. The spec sheet reads like a best seller, but how does it translate to the road?

2017 Mercedes-AMG GT C Roadster review

This is the 2017 Mercedes-AMG GT C Roadster. The big question: Has lopping the roof off AMG's GT halo car robbed it of its monster performance credentials and visceral pleasures? Curt heads to Arizona to find out.

2017 Mercedes-AMG E43 4Matic review

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.

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. 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...

2017 Mercedes-AMG GLC 43 Coupe - Paris Motor Show 2016

Hot SUVs are the flavour of the month and the new Mercedes-AMG GLC 43 is no exception. Featuring a 270kW / 520Nm twin-turbo 3.0-litre V6, the compact Coupe should arrive in Australia in early 2017 to take on the likes of the Porsche Macan and Audi SQ5.

Mercedes-AMG GLC43 v Porsche Macan GTS comparison

Buying a luxury SUV is confusing. There are so many sizes, so many options and so many brands all offering what would, on paper at least, seem like a great purchase. On the smaller end of the scale, the likes of the Porsche Macan GTS and Mercedes-AMG GLC43 go head-to-head for dominance in the all-important performance SUV war of the Germans...

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. We are inside the top-10 world sales market list for Lamborghini, Porsche is seeing continuing sales growth and both Mercedes-AMG and BMW M Division speak highly of the Australian market, where we have the highest performance-version to regular-model ratio in the world...

2018 Mercedes-AMG 'GT' sedan spied

The Mercedes-AMG 'GT' four-door sedan has been spied undergoing testing public roads. Mercedes-Benz has hidden many of the car's styling features underneath a full-body camouflage, as well as false panels for the front and rear fascias, and a hump on the rear deck. Despite these tricks, though, it's clear that the new four-door will look a lot like the AMG GT Concept sedan unveiled at this year's Geneva motor show...

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)...
