The AMG Driving Academy is an amazing day at the track! It gives you the opportunity to drive our AMG vehicles in a way that you just can’t experience on normal roads. Whether you are an AMG owner looking to see what the car can do (without wearing out your own tires) or an enthusiast looking to be impressed this event is the one for you!
The 2013 schedule has been announced and they are coming back to Road Atlanta…and some other world famous tracks! You can view the full schedule at the AMG Driving Academy site.
If you purchased a AMG vehicle in the 12 months preceding an event you are eligible to attend the one-day Basic class for free through the AMG Purchase Reward Program.
If you want to see what you’ll experience at the event you can take a look at my previous posts. Please excuse all the giggling in the videos…it is just so fun!
I had been hoping that the 2014 S-Class would show up at the LA Auto Show this week but we will have to settle for the SLS AMG Black Series and the Ener-G Force concept vehicle. It’s hard to call that settling! Look at those wild cars!
I know there are a lot of you that have been waiting on pins and needles for the official 2013 SL65 AMG pricing!
From the official Mercedes-Benz YouTube Channel…There is no way they let Michael Schumacher film this during the race season!
I love how casual his commentary is while is is cornering and probably pulling a few G’s. Those F1 drivers…can’t scare them!
I have AMG on my mind today! We have a 2013 SLK55 AMG and 2013 SL63 AMG on the showroom floor today and a 2013 ML63 AMG on the way! This would be a great time to visit the dealership if you are in the market to go fast!
Not bad when you check out the competition…

Richard, a blog reader of of New York, just sent me these pictures of Mac II, his brand new C63 Black Series! What a looker! He replaced a 2010 C63 with the P31 Development Package and says that the Black Series is even louder! He also says the C63 Black Series is a great value for the performance you get…I hope his local dealer appreciates him!
The 2013 Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Black Series Coupe will be built soon! There are a very limited number of cars available and you’ll need to reserve one soon!
“But what I didn’t know was just how freakishly quick. Ready? 0-60 happens in 4.2 seconds. 4.2! That’s nearly supercar-quick, and this thing’s a folding hardtop with cylinder deactivation and start/stop. The quarter mile takes just 12.6 seconds, and you’ll be moving at 113.3 mph through the traps — a very respectable clip.”
“For one thing, if you’re just going to let numbers totally influence your car-buying, you should know that the SLK55 AMG is just as quick as the V-12-powered Aston Martin Virage, such as the Madagascar Orange British beauty we just tested. It had an asking price of $225,820, making the little white Mercedes (with the big, bad V-8) an absolute bargain by comparison.”
“The air scarf — Mercedes-speak for a vent below the headrest that blows hot air on the back of one’s neck — is my wife’s favorite automotive innovation since electric starters. I really do think Mercedes should make this a feature on every car sold, simply because women love it.”
“The SLK55 hungrily rushes towards corners; the brakes easily chomp into your momentum; and the chassis and steering make quick, fun, controlled work of corners.”
