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.

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.

2018 Mercedes-AMG GLC63 S review

If you like your SUVs to have supercar-like performance, then the Mercedes-AMG GLC 63 S could be the school-run wagon for you.

AMG Driving Academy Bathurst: The chance to conquer Mount Panorama in AMG’s street-legal hot rods

Pushing the pedal to the metal in a spanking new Mercedes-AMG E63 S down Mount Panorama’s Conrod Straight with the speedo counter nudging 250km/h might seem like a silly thing to do on a Monday morning, but to any car enthusiast worth their salt, it’s quite literally the Holy Grail...

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.

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.

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

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...

Mercedes-AMG GLC43 v Porsche Macan GTS comparison

Buying a luxury SUV is confusing. There are so many sizes, so many options and so many brands all offering what would, on paper at least, seem like a great purchase. On the smaller end of the scale, the likes of the Porsche Macan GTS and Mercedes-AMG GLC43 go head-to-head for dominance in the all-important performance SUV war of the Germans...

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)...
