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.

Ice driving in New Zealand

Level pegging with the clouds at more than 1600 meters in New Zealand’s frigid Cardrona Valley, you’ll find the Southern Hemisphere Proving Grounds, less than an hour’s drive from Queenstown on New Zealand's stunningly picturesque South Island. And, just to be clear, we’re not talking about an X-Games venue or an extreme winter sports training facility...

2020 Mercedes-AMG CLA45 S review

Of AMG's small dynamic duo, the A45 hatch might seem like the obvious go-to for performance – but the new 2020 Mercedes-AMG CLA45 may just surprise you.

2020 Mercedes-AMG A45 review

The most anticipated new AMG model since, well, the last one.

2020 Mercedes-AMG CLA45 S review

Overall, the new 2020 Mercedes-AMG CLA 45 S is the more mature choice over an A45. It’s a shame it just misses out on the three-seconds club, because other than that, it would be our pick over the A45 every day of the week. In red.

2020 Mercedes-AMG A45 S review

What a worthwhile wait. With the new 2020 Mercedes-AMG A45 S, the only negatives are the lack of noise and the similar-to-A-Class interior. We don’t know yet how much it will cost, but hopefully you can take one home for about the $100K mark when it shows up in Australia in the first quarter of 2020. And for that price, you’re not going to find much that will outperform this...

Mercedes-AMG GT4 race car review

The Mercedes-AMG GT4 is the car you buy if you have numerous supercars but don’t fancy destroying one of them on a track day. Or if you actually want to compete in GT4 races. It’s a serious bit of kit that demands respect at all times, but conversely, you can trailer it to a track, change a few settings and have an absolute blast knowing you’re completely protected with a great safety cell while being in an actual race car...

2019 Mercedes Benz GLC & Mercedes-AMG GLC63 S review

2019 European performance sedan comparison

If you’re looking for the most visceral journeys, short or long, from a practical mid-sized performance sedan, should you look to Alfa Romeo, Audi Sport, BMW M or Mercedes-AMG?

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...

2020 Mercedes-AMG GT pricing and specs

Mercedes-AMG has released pricing and specs for its updated two-door flagship, the GT. As with the pre-facelift GT, the updated model is powered by a 4.0-litre bi-turbo V8 making 384kW and 670Nm in 'base' GT S guise. All that grunt is sent to the rear wheels through a Mercedes-AMG seven-speed '7G-DCT' transmission...

Mercedes-AMG rules out B-Class, EQC, vans - report

Mercedes-AMG has tuned everything from sedans to roadsters and big, boxy SUVs, but there are a few Mercedes-Benz models the performance arm won’t be fettling. Mercedes-AMG chief Tobias Moers told Motor Trend the vehicles which won’t be getting the AMG treatment – and it’s a short list. Firstly, there’ll be no AMG variants of Mercedes-Benz’s commercial vans...

Mercedes-AMG’s turbo four could power larger models

Could there eventually be a Mercedes-AMG C45 AMG? Don’t rule it out. Paultan reports the power-rich M139 turbocharged four-cylinder, as seen in the new Mercedes-AMG A45, has been engineered for longitudinal applications. It’s currently used only in cars on the MFA2 front/all-wheel-drive platform, where it’s mounted transversely...

2016 Mercedes-AMG C 63 S review

Trundling through the CBD at 40km/h, with the sound of the exhaust reverberating through the concrete canyons, the C63S coupe is reminiscent of a Panzer tank rumbling into battle. The exhaust note telegraphs the fury that can be unleashed by the 375kW 4.0-litre, twin-turbo V8 that powers this German muscle car...

2016 Mercedes-AMG GLA 45 4MATIC Review

3 years ago we bought this car. I hated it. I hated it on the test drive and I hated it on the drive home. After 39000kms, I will now fight anyone who tries to take it off me. I love it. It is utterly brilliant, entertaining, noisy and monstrously fast. Plus the baby fits in it. The issue at first was me being familiar with big capacity V8s and having no experience with little turbo engines...

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)...
