Mercedes-Benz CLK GTR remembered - Video

With V12s on their way out of the Mercedes-AMG range, it's worth celebrating some of the cool and wild vehicles to be created by the tuner-turned-manufacturer over its four decades of operation. The CLK GTR of the late 1990s was developed in racing guise in just 128 days for the 1997 FIA GT championship, entered in the GT1 class to take on the McLaren F1 GTR...

Mercedes-AMG C63 successor to be hybrid – Tobias Moers

While rival German carmakers have ditched sonorous V8 engines for blown six-cylinder options, at least in the small performance segment, Mercedes-AMG has stayed the course with the rear-drive C63 – at least for now. With stringent emissions requirements needing to be met by all manufacturers, as well as the fast-track to electrification, the days of AMG twin-turbo V8s seem numbered...

2018 Mercedes-AMG C63 revealed

Mercedes-AMG has unveiled its facelifted C63 range in New York, with a mildly overhauled exterior and a tech-heavy interior but, in shocking news, no more power. What's going on in Affalterbach? Power comes from the same 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 as before, making the same 350kW and 650Nm in 'base trim', or 375kW and 700Nm in range-topping C63 S guise...

Infiniti Q60 Black S: Hardcore hybrid set for October reveal

Infiniti is expected to reveal its production-ready, performance hybrid Q60 Black S at this year’s Paris motor show in October, but you won’t see it on sale until at least 2020 — provided it’s green lit for production by company chiefs at all. The 500hp (370kW) Black S model will tap into the company’s collaboration with the Renault Sport Formula 1 team...

2018 Mercedes-AMG C43 Coupe and Cabriolet revealed

Mercedes-AMG has unveiled its facelifted 'warm' C43 Coupe and Convertible with more technology, mildly tweaked looks and more power.

Mercedes-AMG: No standalone SUV coming

The Mercedes-AMG performance sub-brand has no plans to develop its own mega-power crossover, arguing such a car would cannibalise existing Mercedes-Benz products. The ever-growing performance division this week launched the new GT 4-Door super-limo, expanding its line-up into the ‘family’ space for the first time...

Mercedes-AMG: 300kW hot hatch on the way

Turns out Mercedes-AMG can eke even more power out of a 2.0-litre four-banger, after all. The successor to the manic A45 hot hatch will have a brand new unit making 300kW. We were part of a group of Australian motoring writers to chat with Mercedes-AMG chief Tobias Moers at the Geneva motor show this week, who threw us some crumbs to work with...

Mercedes-AMG has unveiled the upgraded C43 sedan and wagon, its more refined all-wheel drive alternative to the hardcore C63 V8. The reveal comes hot on the heels of the updated Mercedes-Benz-badged 'regular' C-Class range.
