AMG is the high performance department of Mercedes Benz, they create awesome automobiles.
In 1967, two automotive engineers with a passion for motorsports began fine-tuning engines for Mercedes-Benz racecars in an old mill. Today, as the performance division of Mercedes-Benz, AMG creates some of the most sought-after vehicles in the world. They’re the product of skilled craftsmen, designers and engineers who live to test the limits, and one shared conviction: on the road to driving performance, short cuts never win the race.
A fine moment
SOME THINGS CAN’T BE MASS-PRODUCED.
From the beginning, the “One Man, One Engine” philosophy has guided AMG’s approach to manufacturing. Even now, every AMG engine is hand built from start to finish by one of about 50 AMG Master Engine Builders in a special facility.
As the final step in the assembly process, the engine-maker affixes a plaque engraved with his signature to the engine cover. It’s an enduring reminder that even the heart of a Mercedes-AMG has a soul.
The renowned AMG 6.3-liter naturally aspirated V-8 engine employs race-proven technology, including self-adjusting bucket tappets and plasma-sprayed cylinder bores.
This is art in motion
Equipped with high-speed engine management and liquid-to-air intercooling technology, the mighty AMG 6.0-liter biturbo V-12 engine responds instantly in all RPM ranges.
I love this cars, but I do have an issue with them, for a real drivers they are no fun to drive at all at speed, they have to many electronics that stop any good driver to enjoy the car, you cannot put this beautiful machines side ways or mistreat it somewhat a little, the electronics come in and stop you from having all the fun.
I love to have one with out any of the electronics that limits us to really drive this cars, I do understand that they make their car safe for 90% of the drivers with are average drivers, but for somebody like me that is a race car driver when young and now vintage car racers its limiting the fun.
Also some of this spectacular automobiles are not very well balanced if you have the traction control off and really drive the car, the SLR is nose heavy and the rear gets loose very quickly, but at the end is more fun to drive this monster without it, if you own one and you are not a good driver, and I mean a good driver, do not drive this beast crazy fast without the traction control, because it does become a hands full to drive if you are not an excellent driver and even if you are one. Man, it was awesome to drive, Next? I wan to drive the Mercs CLA 4.5, what a pretty car and probably a great toy to own, 355HP, 2.0 turbo engine, Yes I want one. It is the perfect size car for today driving and what a performance, so why do I want one, because it is simple awesome.
The 355 HP CLA45 AMG 4MATIC
The most powerful engine of its kind on earth, the AMG 2.0-liter turbo inline 4 employs twin-scroll turbocharging to deliver higher performance with lower consumption
