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.

2017 Mercedes-AMG C63 S Coupe Review

We've universally loved every iteration of the new C63 AMG and the Coupe is no different. In fact, we reckon it might even be the pick of the range.

Forza Horizon 3 for real: super cars, muscle cars and the 12 Apostles

2016 Mercedes-AMG C63 S Review by Chris Atkinson

Torque. It’s the second twin of the power equation, one often overlooked in favour of the first-born, horsepower. So why do I like torque so much? Ask any top rally driver what he or she wants more of and the answer will usually be “torque”. If a driver gets this wish, then they will ask for more grip, and then more torque and the cycle continues...

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...

BMW M3 or Mercedes-AMG C63 S? Hell, why not throw in a Lexus for good measure!

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...

2018 Mercedes-Benz A-Class hits the Nurburgring

Spy photographers have snapped the next-generation Mercedes-Benz A-Class during performance testing at the famed Nurburgring race track in Germany.

2017 Mercedes-AMG GT C roadster teased ahead of Paris debut

A teaser video for the upcoming Mercedes-AMG GT C roadster has been released prior to its unveiling at end of the month at the Paris motor show.

What is Australia's favourite hot hatch?

Australians love hotted-up versions of everyday small hatches and sedans, but which are the sales leaders? Beyond a shadow of a doubt, it’s Volkswagen that sits at the top of the sales tree, given the fact it leads across three key price/power market breakdowns. But Subaru, Renault, Ford and even premium players Audi, BMW and Mercedes-Benz give stiff competition...

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)...
