Allow me to be picky here for just a second. Yesterday, a new video of the purported 2020 Mercedes-AMG GT Black Series appeared, showing the green mule testing at the Nürburgring. It sounds guttural and mean as all hell, but what exactly is the point of it? None. There is no point.
The Mercedes-AMG Project One, an angry fish-looking thing, will be the German automaker’s street-legal Formula One car. With a price of nearly $3 million, it seems like Mercedes is also going the way of Ford and Aston Martin by reportedly forbidding buyers from flipping their cars as soon as they get them.
For the handful of you who own a 2017 Mercedes-AMG G65, I have some bad news. The days of putting your V12 trucks into reverse and running over pedestrians are finished. I’m sorry to have to tell you this.
On the one hand, the Mercedes-AMG GT 4 Door Coupe is one of the most dishonest cars of a generation. On the other hand, it has monoblock wheels. Monoblock wheels. I love this car. It is the best.
Mercedes is getting serious with AMG, and by “serious,” I mean “slapping its badge on anything that moves.” As such, I’m inclined to believe this report that the in-house performance arm will make a mid-engine sports car to rival the Porsche Cayman. Well, to be honest, I don’t have to have any great reason to believe…
One of the cars I am most eagerly anticipating is the 2019 Mercedes-AMG A 35. It’ll be the mid-range A-Class AMG to slot below the A 45. It will probably have about 300 horsepower. And just look at it go on the Nürburgring!
The 2019 Mercedes-AMG E53, with an inline six-cylinder engine mated to a 48-volt electrical power boost system, is breaking new ground for sport sedans. Mercedes announced the “53” range of mild hybrid AMG cars back in January and today it’s officially unveiled this version of the E Class.
The 2018 Mercedes AMG E63 S is wrought from the middle of your Venn diagram of desires. You want a car with power and personality; you need a car that can carry kids and cargo. You want a 600 horsepower hot rod; you need safety and subtly. You like wagons, because you have good taste and are smart.
Aston Martin has not installed a 6-cylinder engine in any of their cars since the death of the DB7 in 1999, even though the company was, for decades, synonymous with inline-six touring coupes. Thanks to the British sports car maker’s partnership with Mercedes-AMG, inline-six power could be back on the table again, in…
Today Mercedes looked upon its own works and despaired, recognizing in a brief moment of self-awareness that, hey, maybe having 40 models is enough. Or if it’s not enough, it’s pretty damn close. Bah! BAH. It can do more. It can do so much more.
Mercedes is not content with stretching the definition of what a coupe or a sedan is, and is now stretching the definition of what a car is itself. The Mercedes-AMG GT four-door is not, in fact, an AMG GT stretched to fit four-doors.
The new Mercedes-AMG GT four-door is a style-conscious four-door coupe for those wanting a bit more than the usual E-Class. But that’s a car that Mercedes already sells: the CLS. Now that it’s doubling up on specialty cars, you have to wonder if Mercedes has run out of niches to fill. Amazingly, Mercedes kind of…
If you’re the kind of person who likes truly unique fast cars and procreation, your options can be limited when it comes to combining your two passions. Yes, you can get M cars, RS cars, and AMGs, but they’re all faster versions of already existing cars. Maybe you want something that was designed from the off as a…
Mercedes just updated the C43 AMG to give its 3.0-liter V6 larger turbochargers, more boost and more power. Things are up 23 horsepower to a total of 385, which basically makes this the sports sedan you wished you could buy a decade ago from Audi.
There’s another car-themed boat, everyone. Because you know as soon as we saw the 1,000-plus-horsepower Mercedes-AMG Project One, there was someone already in the wings, dreaming up a boat version of it. And here it is: the Cigarette Racing 515 Project One. It has 3,100 HP.
The Mercedes-AMG Project One isn’t a head-turner, unless you pull a double take because it looks like a mutated fish. But that doesn’t mean it’s not effective. No, no, no, this car isn’t meant to look good. It’s meant to go fast and glue itself to the ground, which is why AMG claims it makes NASCAR levels of downforce.
If this were news about another inevitable Mercedes-AMG SUV, I’d roll my eyes. But it’s not: This concerns a potential AMG version of the new, 2019 Mercedes A- Class sedan, and I am absolutely stoked for it.
This has to end. Enough is enough. The new Mercedes C63 AMG, with its twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V8, does not sound inferior to the old Mercedes C63, with its naturally-aspirated 6.2-liter V8. Listen! The madness has to stop.
