2019 AMG GT R Roadster spied

A drop-top take on the hottest Mercedes-AMG, the GT R, has been spied during development testing. The AMG GT R Roadster will sit alongside its Nurburgring-conquering coupe sibling, with power from a twin-turbo 4.0-litre V8 making 430kW and 700Nm, sent exclusively to the rear wheels. That should be good for a 100km/h sprint time of around 3...

The Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door Coupe has a clumsy name, but it promises to bring range-topping AMG performance to a wider audience, with four seats and a 470kW/900Nm twin-turbo V8 engine. To put its family credentials to the test, Mercedes-AMG has turned to F1 champion Lewis Hamilton and a carload of stuffed toys...

2020 Mercedes-AMG CLA45 spied

The next-generation Mercedes-AMG CLA45 has been caught for the first time, a week-and-a-half after a regular CLA was spied doing laps of the Nurburgring. Sitting low and squat on low-profile rubber, the CLA45 is easily distinguished from its more pedestrian siblings thanks to a small spoiler on the boot lip, massive quad exhaust tips, a prominent rear diffuser, and vertical vents on the rear bumper...

Mercedes-AMG GT 63 4-door hits the Nurburgring - video

The Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S 4-door (breathes deeply) is the second standalone model to be launched under Benz's performance arm, and now we have vision of some early examples roaring around the Nurburgring circuit in Germany.

2018 BMW M5 v Mercedes-AMG E63 S comparison

It’s a great Did You Know factoid that AMG wasn’t involved in the first express-spec E-Class. When Mercedes decided five years was long enough for the original (1985) M5 to have had its own way in the mid-range sports sedan arena – longer if you count the M535i – the Stuttgart brand sought the help of close-neighbour Porsche to create a muscled-up, V8-powered version of the W124 sedan...
