Mercedes has just unveiled the AMG-GT – a new flagship model that was entirely developed by AMG and boy, is this a seriously sexy car!
This is also the first time Mercedes has dropped the ‘Benz’ from the name, emphasising the fact that it very much belongs to the brains over at AMG. Not that that is an issue at all, we are thrilled to finally lay our eyes on this anticipated car.
The AMG-GT sportscar was designed to compete with the Jaguar F-Type and the Porsche 911. And, by the looks of things, both Jaguar and Porsche should be sitting on the edge of their seats because there is no doubt that this car is one serious competitor.
First things first – the power (because really what else could be more important?). (more…)
It sure does seem like any petrol head’s dream to drive a Porsche GT3, an Aston Martin V12 Vantage S and a Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Black Series. Now imagine having a go at these three cars all in one day.
Well, thats what our favorite petrol head, Chris Harris, has the opportunity of doing recently.
Chris drives these cars (we’d like to think on behalf of us) and gives a short breakdown on what it feels like to be at the steer of any of these. Which car is best for road driving? And which one is best suited to a racing track?
Check out the video below to find out:
We all know AMG as Mercedes-Benz’s in house performance tuner. What many of us don’t know, however, is how AMG got started.
Finally AMG (along with Mercedes) has released a short, 10-minute documentary on the upbringing of AMG and how the German company got absorbed into Mercedes-Benz.
The documentary reveals many interesting facts, for instance; what AMG actually stands for. (more…)
Remember that skateboarder who set off the speed cameras down Kloofneck? Bring Back Choirboy (yeah weird name), went and got hold of Decio Lourenco, and tasked him to skate down a Cape Town pass with a brand new Mercedes A45 AMG.
Here is the description:
“Inspired by seeing local skaterboarder Decio Lourenco blasting down the steep and gnarly Kloofneck road in Cape Town South Africa, I thought to myself… Let’s see this guy race a car, but not just any car, a car that sends shivers down your spine as the rev needle hits its peak.
So with some hunting and a bit of begging, we were lucky to get our hands on the Mercedes-Benz A45 AMG edition one.
So off to the Franschoek hills we went, shooting wild, fighting weather systems, bombing hills, young film makers dreams and nightmares happening simultaneously.
And here we have it, a film i’m proud to say that was pulled off with all the odds against us, who needs big budgets, who needs gravity, the clouds broke and gave us the perfect storm of man vs machine.
Speed, Control and Elegance
Big Ups to all that made this film happen:
Bring Back Choirboy, Priest, Mercedes-Benz, Darkwing Aerials, Media Film Services, Helloiamrory, Zootee, Ensemble Post, Moby for the track and the whole crew that we couldn’t of done this shoot without.
Hope you enjoyed watching this as much as we did making it…
There will be more!
The Bring Back Choirboy Team”

Merc’s brand new model was spotted close to the company’s Nurburgring testing facility by shutterbugs on the prowl. The ML63 AMG, which was sporting a light camouflage, has been snapped to reveal features such as a revised grille, subtle rear spoiler, modified bumpers and a four-tailpipe exhaust system.
It looks like if you want something fast and German and muscular, you will have to give Mercedes Benz a call. While their main rivals seem to have gone a bit soft in terms of design, Merc are cranking it up continuously with wider wheel arches, angrier front ends and even more aggressive rear ends.
Have a good look at this, the new Mercedes Benz C63 AMG Coupe Black Series, to give the car it’s full title. It’s not the first C Coupe Black, that arrived a few years ago with a warning letter to owners asking them to please drive in perfect conditions or else risk certain death. Oh, and sign here so you can’t sue us when that happens.
