If you’re the fan of Mercedes-Benz, you probably have the favorite car, one which might not be represented in the video below. Mine would probably be a new E63 S, which wasn’t available at the time.
But I can understand why these six AMG models were chosen, and as they pack all the different hand-built engines that are offered. More than any other brand in the world, AMG is defined by its engines… except Ferrari.
Let’s start with the A45, which redefined what it means to be the hot hatch twice, once it came out and the second time with the mid-life facelift.
It’s clearly not going to be the winner of a race, but it is one of the quickest off the line, and despite what the 0 to 100 km/h times tell you.
Some people consider that what happens after 100 km/h doesn’t matter anyway. And for those who do care, AMG has plenty of fast vehicles.
The underperformer of this test is clearly the SLK 43 AMG, and equipped with that new twin-turbo 3.0-liter V6 that’s not built by hand.
It doesn’t shine in any way, and making you wonder why they bothered to keep it in production. After that, a field gets split between the cutting-edge cars with a new 4-liter V8 and the wild, old-fashioned brutes.
Both the C63 and the AMG GT S use the 4.0L, but the new E63 I talked about has the more powerful version of that V8, I think it might have won this race.
Shame! Anyway, does it come as the surprise that a dedicated speed machine with the transaxle gearbox won the race? No. The S 65 AMG Coupe is the most expensive vehcle of this awesome drag race.
