Mercedes Benz is the signature name for style and performance, and since its inception, the German brand has never compromised on features or its range. The Mercedes-AMG range has some of the best vehicles for the brand that are meant for higher performance and standards. AMG was once an independent company and was founded by two Mercedes engineers. Daimler-Benz AG took up an initial controlling interest in AMG in 1999, and by 2005, it became the sole owner. Today, AMG Mercedes is a fully-owned subsidiary of Daimler AG.
If you are remotely interested in buying a Mercedes with the AMG tag, you have two choices. You can go for a model that has the AMG badge or a full-on model from the range. The former just has the appearance of an AMG but doesn’t offer the same kind of performance as you would expect with an AMG Mercedes model. Here are some of the best models from the AMG range at a glance, not including GT 4, which was recently launched.
- Mercedes AMG C63. The fans of the brand swear by the Mercedes C Class. The Mercedes AMG C63 takes the standard a tad higher, with a twin-turbocharged V8 engine under the hood. You can imagine the power of this beast from the fact that it can run up to 60 mph in just 4.2 seconds. No wonder, this is something you would want to own.
- Mercedes AMG GT. Often termed as the supercar from the AMG range, this model was launched as a smarter replacement for Mercedes SLS. Mercedes SLS was on sale even till 2015 and looks similar to AMG GT in terms of styling. Mercedes AMG GT is powered by a twin-turbocharged V8 engine that rushes to 60 mph in four seconds, with a top speed of 189 mph. Now that’s a beast worth naming on this list.
- Mercedes AMG A45 4Matic. If you are interested in a premium hatchback model that stands the test of time, this is the model for you. With a 2.0-litre engine, this model produces 381 bhp, which is more than just impressive. In just 4.2 seconds, the model can dash up to a speed of 60 mph, and the top speed of around 155 mph.
You can check online to find dealers for new and used AMG models, and don’t forget to check the pictures which are impressive, to say the least.
