Oh Yeah, The Mercedes-AMG GT's Twin Turbo V8 Is Gonna Sound Real Angry

Mercedes-Benz and AMG are about to throw their hat into the 911-fighting game, but there's been a bit of controversy over the Mercedes-AMG GT's noise. When they put out some clips of the exhaust note a while back, the car didn't sound that impressive. I think we can lay those concerns to rest now. » 7/20/14 2:45pm 7/20/14 2:45pm

The Coolest Details of the 2014 Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG

The 2014 Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG is the marque's flagship, the vehicle that every other car aspires to be. Its exterior lines have been given an elegant smoothing-over in the face of the previous generation's explicit flared-fender aggression. But, as we learned with the 2014 Porsche Cayman S, the devil's in the… » 6/20/14 4:33pm 6/20/14 4:33pm

2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA45 AMG: The Jalopnik Review

This Is How Mercedes-AMG Hand-Builds Every Single Engine

It's well-known that Mercedes-Benz's Aufrecht, Melcher and Großaspach division, also known as AMG, is the one that makes all the cars with the racy bits in them. It's also well-known that each engine is painstakingly handcrafted by one person. It's fascinating, though, to watch the process from start to finish. » 12/21/13 4:08pm 12/21/13 4:08pm

CCC Manhattan 2013 Round-Up

It's been a good year at Classic Car Club Manhattan. A healthy dose of racing, in many different flavors, kept us on our toes during the summer months. While off-track we were busy driving the GT40 through tunnels, exploring the countryside in search of the ever-elusive 'perfect road', and destroying jbh's GoPros. » 12/08/13 5:26pm 12/08/13 5:26pm
