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.

53 is the new 43, but it's closer to 63 in more than just numbers.

2019 Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door review: GT 63 S

The Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S may just be the perfect balance between next-level performance and the daily drive. It's certainly a worthy recipient of its full-strength AMG status.

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...

2019 Mercedes-AMG GT 4door 63 S review: First drive

Tony Crawford: There’s an awful lot to this new AMG model, and we’ve only just touched on it in the few hours we had in the car. But either way, this is a proper five-door super express worthy of its full-strength AMG status.

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...

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...

Model X, Urus, G63, SVR drag race - video

The 'super-SUV' segment is a relatively young one, but it's already getting crowded. Along with the Tesla Model X P100D, there's the new Lamborghini Urus, the recently-revealed Mercedes-AMG G63 and the Range Rover Sport SVR competing for (lots of) your dollars. To work out which is the quickest in a straight line, Mat Watson from Carwow pulled the aforementioned vehicles together for a drag race...

2019 Mercedes-AMG GT Black Series spied at the 'Ring

A prototype believed to be a more extreme 'Black Series' version of the Mercedes-AMG GT has been spied again, this time during performance testing at the Nurburgring race track in Germany. Compared to the prototype snapped in September, this vehicle is sporting a more aggressive aerodynamic setup, including a more pronounced front bumper and splitter with incorporated flics, and a larger rear wing...

E63 S v F-Type SVR drag race - video

Eight-cylinder performance cars can take on very different forms these days – take the Jaguar F-Type SVR and Mercedes-AMG E63 S Estate, for example. In a new clip published by Carwow, Mat Watson lines up the British sports car and German performance wagon for an old-school drag race, to see which is quickest. On paper, the two vehicles are closely matched...

2017-18 Mercedes-AMG S63 recalled

Mercedes-Benz Australia has issued a recall for the AMG S63 over concerns the active lane-keep assist function may not work as intended. According to the German marque, the technology's camera software could malfunction, resulting in the lane-keep assist system not applying the brakes following an "inadvertent lane change from a speed over 105km/h"...

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)...
