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 E43 Review

AMG’s success and the addition of more models means less exclusivity. Is the 2016 Mercedes-AMG E43 worthy of the Affalterbach name plate, or is it just a fast Benz?

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

Forza Horizon 3 is one of the most anticipated video games to be released this year, and – thanks to Xbox – CarAdvice got a sneak preview of the game and some one-on-one time with one of the key people behind it, all while taking in the gorgeous views and divine roads of Victoria's surf coast in a selection of performance-car perfection...

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...

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.

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...

BMW M3 v Lexus GS F v Mercedes-AMG C63 S comparison

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...

Mercedes-AMG C43 sales won't cannibalise other models

Mercedes-Benz's local arm is adamant the new AMG C43 won't cannibalise the sales of other Mercedes-Benz variants, not least of all the AMG C63 flagship. "We think the AMG C43 is for buyers who want something that looks a bit special but not the performance or expense of an AMG C63," said Jerry Stamoulis, Manager for Public Relations and Product Communications...

Mercedes-AMG GT Roadster will attract 'a completely different buyer'

With the coming release of the AMG GT Roadster, Mercedes-Benz faces an interesting task of how to best position the vehicle in dealerships next to the existing SL63 AMG Roadster, which on the surface, you'd think would attract a similar buyer. Not so, according to the German marque...

BMW Australia's M Division booming, but Mercedes-AMG and Audi have the edge

BMW Australia’s hardcore M and warmed-up M Performance divisions are both showing strong growth in 2016, as local buyers continue to flock to hotted-up cars despite our low speed limits. The Munich marque's success at this end of the market partially mirrors even stronger performances from rivals Audi and Mercedes-AMG...

Mystery AMG C63 spied at the Nurburgring - video: New 'R' or Black Series model coming?

The 2016 Mercedes-AMG C63 S Coupe is already a tyre-shredding menace, but there could be an even hotter ‘R’ version on the way if this prototype doing rounds at the Nurburgring circuit is anything to go by...

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)...
