SLS AMG GT3 Black Swan Racing Team at Lime Rock Park

Black Swan Race Team is based in Boston running an SLS AMG GT3 in the SCCA Pirelli World Challenge series this year. Black Swan Racing Team owner and driver Tim Pappas is a long time AMG customer and enthusiast, and runs a top notch Team operation. They are committed to the SLS AMG GT3 Customer Sport program in the long run which might include the new IMSA United Sports Car Racing series launching in 2014 which is a merger of the Grand American Rolex Sports Car Series and the American LeMans Series and will include such world class endurance racing events as the Rolex 24 at Daytona, Sebring 12 Hours, Watkins Glen 6 Hours and Petit LeMans at Road Atlanta, along with a full slate of shorter races around the US.

Our own Will Vetter from AMG Product Management spent some time with the Tim and the Black Swan Team at the recent race at Lime Rock Park.

2014 Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG 4Matic Training at Atlanta Classic Cars!

Mercedes E63 at Atlanta Classic Cars

I was lucky enough to spend a few hours yesterday with this amazing 2014 Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG 4MATIC. We received some technical training and some hands on experience with Race Start and the updated parking assist.

I kept trying to get a picture that really showed off the 19″ matte black 10-spoke wheels (code 752). I am normally not a fan of black wheels but these really complimented the car.

I am now prepared to talk for at least 30 minutes about all of the changes that AMG made to the E63 AMG to make it even more aggressive and exciting on the road. The wider fenders are impressive, the lower facia is artwork and the quad exhaust sounds great!

With all of the exterior upgrades I almost forgot to check out the interior! The AMG styling is present here as well with the sculpted seats, console gear selector and meticulously stitched dashboard.

I am so jealous of all of the people attending the AMG Driving Academy at Road Atlanta this weekend. I would love a little more seat time with this beauty!

Thanks to our AMG Expert John Sands for bringing this car by and I look forward to seeing you again soon for our CLA45 AMG training!

Motor Trend Reviews the 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA45 AMG!

CLA45 AMG

“Through careful and near-obsessive engineering, the team at AMG has produced a  turbocharged engine that delivers 177.5 hp per liter and develops full torque  from 2250 to 5000 rpm. In practical terms, not only can it deliver a mountain of  torque on demand, it can deliver the exact level of torque the driver requires.”

“On the road, the CLA45 feels small and agile — not exactly what we’ve come to  expect from Mercedes. While it certainly feels every bit the level of quality we  expect of anything with the three-pointed star, it is immediately obvious this  car uses a cab-forward, transverse-engine layout. The driving position is near  ideal, and the seats and steering wheel are a DTM fan’s dream. Rear headroom is  compromised by the sloping roof, but on the upside, the trunk has plenty of  space. Road noise is minimal and engine noise is fantastic.”

“The CLA45 may not seem like an ideal track-day weapon, but it was one of the most enjoyable cars I’ve had on the track in a long time. On the road, the  mixture of luxury and performance make it a world-class sport sedan.”
