Documents submitted last year by Daimler to the European Union Patent and Trademark Office show Mercedes-AMG has trademarked 'AMG 40', 'AMG 50', 'S73', 'GLS73' and 'G73' for use in Europe.

Maserati Quattroporte GTS recalled

Maserati's local division has issued a recall for its Quattroporte GTS limousine over concerns a faulty wiring harness could compromise the fuel pump. According to the Italian marque, operation of the low-pressure fuel pump could be compromised due to an open circuit in the wiring harness. If the condition occurs, vehicles could experience a loss of engine power – even engine shut down – posing an accident risk to occupants and other road users.
