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.

2019 Mercedes-AMG GT C review

The Mercedes-AMG GT doesn't have enough power and performance? Don't worry, ’Benz has you sorted. The GT C steps it up a notch, but is it worth the cash? Paul Maric finds out.

2019 Mercedes-AMG C63 S review

The mid-cycle update mightn't bring extra power or performance to the Mercedes-AMG C63 S range, but the much-loved biturbo V8-powered range does have some new and clever tricks up its sleeves...

2018 Mercedes-AMG C43 review

The Mercedes-AMG C43 range is the better-known C63's grippier, less manic sibling. The updated versions have a more powerful twin-turbo V6, slick new cabin tech and more, to keep the Audi S4/S5 range on its toes.

2018 Mercedes-AMG S63L review

With a confident swagger, subtle muscularity, and a thumping twin-turbo V8 under the bonnet, the Mercedes-AMG S63L makes for a surprisingly fitting flagship for the brand, encompassing the best of luxury and performance in one formidable package.

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

See the full article here. 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...

2017 Mercedes-AMG GT R track review

See the full article here. Thundering into turn one at the deceptively named Bilster Berg Driving Resort, the 2017 AMG GT R is popping, crackling and snarling as I downshift under heavy braking before turning into the tight uphill hairpin. Following Mercedes-Benz racing legend Bernt Schneider at close quarters is illustrating two glaring points...

2017 Mercedes-AMG C63s v 1996 Mercedes-Benz 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.

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...

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...

VACC celebrating centenary with 'world first' cavalcade

The Victorian Automobile Chamber of Commerce (VACC) is marking its 100-year anniversary this Saturday, with what's believed to be an event never attempted anywhere in the world. The industry association is undertaking a cavalcade of 100 vehicles from 61 different marques, with one car from each year between 1918, the year VACC was founded, and 2018 making an appearance...

Mercedes-AMG GT 43 4-door revealed

Mercedes-AMG has kicked off sales of the new GT 4-door in Europe, quietly revealing a new variant in the process – the AMG GT 43 4-door 4Matic+. Sitting below the 53 and 63 models in the line-up, the GT 43 4-door draws from a 3.0-litre turbocharged inline-six with 270kW of power and 500Nm of torque, the latter on tap from 1800 to 4500rpm...

Mercedes-AMG GT, GT S recalled

Mercedes-AMG has recalled the GT and GT S, over concerns about the front passenger seat classification system. According to the company, the software responsible for classifying the passenger mightn't function correctly. That means a child seat could be classified as a person, or a small person could be marked as a child seat...

2019 Mercedes-AMG GT 'Black Series' spied

A development prototype believed to be the upcoming Mercedes-AMG GT Black Series has been snapped this week, further fuelling rumours the German performance specialist is working on a new flagship model. Despite looking very much like an AMG GT R wrapped in a swirly black-and-white disguise, this prototype has one distinguishing feature – a different exhaust system with quad pipes sticking out in a Lexus-like stacked design...

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)...
