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.

Inside Mercedes-AMG Formula 1 HQ: What it takes to win

As Formula 1 marked its 1000th race at the Chinese Grand Prix last weekend, it has long ago cemented its place at the very top of the motorsport food chain. There is not one serious racing driver that doesn’t dream of securing one of just 20 competitive seats inside an F1 car...

2020 Mercedes-AMG GT R, GT C, GT S review

Better looks and a far nicer interior, but still the same angry German V8 growl. What's not to love?

REVIEW: 2020 Mercedes-AMG GT R, GT C, GT S first drive

There's so much to like, here. If I were buying an AMG GT, I would find it hard to go past the GT R at first. And if I intended to track the car frequently, I would put up with the downfalls, but a more rational version of me would definitely pick the GT C and live happily ever after. Maybe.

2019 Mercedes-AMG G63 review: It ain't cheap, but is it a good buy?

Look... The Mercedes-AMG G63 is one of the most pointless cars in the world. But, the world is a much better place because of its existence. If you ever spot one of these on the road, tip your hat to the legend that spent the best part of $300,000 on a car that puts a smile on the face of anybody that loves excess.

CarAdvice Winners Circle: Mercedes Benz AMG G63

Curt Dupriez: I’d have the G63 over AMG’s other big, biturbo V8-powered, all-paw, quarter-mil prospect, the E63 S, any day of the week. Heck, even if the sedan was half its actual price. If only because the truck’s ridiculous and nonsensical joys would cast a might brighter halo across any daily humdrum...

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...

2017 Mercedes-AMG C63 S v Mercedes-AMG E43 comparison

So you've got $160k in your hip pocket and fancy a four-door wearing an AMG badge. Fortunately for you, Affalterbach offers two distinctly different choices, if separated in price by only a couple of grand. In one corner sits the perennial favourite nameplate, the 2017 Mercedes-AMG C63 S. Mid-sized and with a Herculean 375kW and 700Nm from its 4...

Mercedes-AMG Old v New: 2017 AMG C63 S v 1996 C36 AMG

There's never a bad time to taste some old-school performance, but is anything from the 1990s old enough to be retro cool, yet? That's the question we explore here, looking back at a 1996 Mercedes-Benz C36 AMG - right alongside today's hero, the 2017 Mercedes-AMG C63 S. And no doubt, the '90s was a decade to remember...

2017 Mercedes-AMG A45 review

It's 5pm on a Sunday evening in the Victorian alpine region. The golden sunlight is glistening in through the snow gums, falling softly on to the black road. Rounding the bend, the 381hp, 475Nm A45 AMG engine begins to snarl and growl as the right foot is eased into the carpet. 'What a sound!' I begin to think as the revs build...

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)...
