We’ve talked a bit about the C63 AMG Edition 507 when it was first announced, and now, some pictures of the car in the flesh. Packaged as a final year send off of the awesome C63 AMG, the Edition 507 packs many of the packages (including an updated performance package) that pumps out 507hp in the final year of this generation C63. North American pricing isn’t available yet, but Mercedes-Benz has been known to drop the price of these final year packages to help boost sales. In Australia, where prices have been released, this is indeed the case. If you’re a fan of the C63 AMG, this final year car is quite the bargain.

The CLS63 AMG, which shares the same underpinnings as the E63 AMG, gets a small mechanical update for the 2014 model year. Much like the E63 AMG S-Model, the CLS 63 AMG will be fitted with the 33/67 split AMG 4matic AWD system. Not much else has changed with the car, other than improving all weather capabilities and launch traction with the new AWD system. Thanks to a boost to 585hp, 0-60mph sprint is expected to drop to the 3.5s mark, making the CLS63 AMG S-Model quite the all weather beast.
As car enthusiasts like myself get older, we need something that’s a little more practical. We want a daily driver that fits the bill for every situation; haul kids, grocery shopping, drive through blizarrds in the winter, and hit the track in the summers. Finally, our prayers have been answered, as Mercedes-AMG shows the E63 AMG Wagon publically for the first time. This is the ultimate sleeper that does it all, 577hp, sport suspension, rear seat entertainment, AWD, packaged in a station wagon.
A few beyonders, including myself, will be taking delivery of this beast in the upcoming years. And here she is in the flesh. Perfection.
The time has finally come. The much anticipated CLA45 AMG is finally here at the New York International Auto show, fully undisguised, in person to see what the fuss is all about. The CLA class is a huge undertaking by Mercedes-AMG, a huge departure for the luxury German Brand. A front wheel drive platform with optional AWD (a first for the brand in the US), and a price point to reach a much younger demographic, it’s been a highly anticipated model by the Generation Y crowd, as well as our forum members.
Here at Beyond, we’re performance enthusiasts. Like Ricky Bobby, we want to go fast, so we’ll be focusing more on the CLA45 AMG model. Up close and in person, the car looks like a shrunken down CLS63 AMG. The “4 door coupe” styling is a little upscale compared to the competition, which is what makes this car so attractive. In fact, by offering the 4 door coupe concept to the CLA, Mercedes-Benz has pretty much defined a completely new segment. The 4 passenger seating maximizes room for the rear passengers, allowing you and 3 friends to ride in style and luxury. The most attractive feature, however, is the price. Starting at $48,375, this brings the AMG brand to a huge new audience and target market.
The A45 AMG sees Mercedes-AMG embarking on a new era. For the first time in the company’s history extending back over more than 45 years, Mercedes-Benz’s performance brand is offering a fascinating high-performance vehicle in the compact class.
Check out this video showing the A45 both on the road and the track. We also get another look into that gorgeous interior, which is likely one of the best in the compact class.
Ahead of the official debut at the Geneva Motor Show next month, Mercedes-Benz AMG unveiled the much anticipated A45 AMG today. Unfortunately for us North Americans, this awesome AMG hot hatch will not be coming to our shores. But we can all drool at what AMG has in store for us with the CLA45 AMG, which will share the same drivetrain as the A45 AMG.
Mercedes AMG posted on their facebook page a sneak peak of what they will be unveiling tomorrow. From the looks of it, it’s the much anticipated A45 AMG, the 2.0L 350hp hot hatch that has the Golf R and RS3 on its sights. Unfortunately for us North Americans, the A45 AMG won’t make it to our shores, and we’ll have to settle for the CLA45 AMG, scheduled to be unveiled in NY at the end of March.
Stay tuned for full coverage of the new baby AMG tomorrow!
On Superbowl Sunday, we got a chance to see Kate Upton and several other celebrities show off the new Mercedes Benz CLA Class in the CLA Superbowl commercial. While the CLA made it’s unofficial debut at the Detroit Auto Show, what was missing from the event was the upcoming AMG version, which is the version us gearheads are patiently waiting for since the unveil. Mercedes-Benz has confirmed that the CLA45 AMG will make it’s official debut at the New York International Auto Show.
I spent a bit of time with the new SL63 AMG at the AMG Performance Tour last year, and was blown away by how good the SL63 was on the track. It’s a completely different car than the predecessor, no longer is it a big boat, but an actual bit of a weapon on the racetrack. Chris Harris compares the new SL63 against the BMW M6 in this week’s Drive episode, as the Ultimate Driving Machine has to prove that it still deserves the moniker.
Mercedes-Benz AMG just posted a video of the C63 AMG Edition 507 to their YouTube channel. There isn’t a whole lot of action in the video so its more of a 360 degree tour, until near the end of the video that is where we see a quick glimpse of the famed Nurburgring track.
Hopefully we’ll see more videos and images popup before we see it being unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show in March.
