A quick look at the 2012 SL63 AMG and a little F1 preview.
I have been lucky enough to attend the event at Road Atlanta a couple of times and can’t say enough good things about the vehicles, the event and the staff! You can see some of my videos on my prior AMG Academy posts. I am bummed that I won’t get a chance to attend this year but I am excited that the folks in Texas and Florida will be getting an opportunity to attend closer to home!
If you have purchased an AMG vehicle in 2011 or 2012 you have already earned a complimentary seat at the Basic Training program! Visit the AMG Purchase Rewards site for all the details!
You can book seats through the AMG Dricing Academy website. This is a great gift for a driving enthusiast, and AMG owner, or for yourself! You will not be disappointed!
“No rational person can make an argument for buying a 525-hp SUV. The fact that AMG offers a performance package that bumps the power up to 557 hp makes me believe there aren’t a lot of rational people responsible for building them, either. Have we mentioned we love AMG?”
“Even with a 40/60 front/rear power split, the stability control won’t allow you to drive the car with the throttle. Once things start to get out of shape, the electronics call a timeout and reel things back in. It is amazing just how hard you have to push to find those limits, and the idea of any rational person finding them is unlikely.”
“Interior quality took a major leap forward in the redesigned ML, and the AMG version takes it another step farther. Material quality is luxurious and attention to detail abounds in spots only contortionists would be able to see. Even the doorjambs look as though they spent time in the design department to match the clean, uncluttered aesthetic.”
“Herr Kallenius boasts that the new ML 63 AMG is the most powerful SUV for sale today. In the same train of thought, he also says the AMG biturbo V-8 is among the cleanest engines for the power output. “AMG is a test lab for new technology that will trickle down into lower segments at Mercedes.”"
Corra Films just worked with the Mercedes-Benz team to make a short documentary film going behind the scenes of their big commercial shoots. The Pursuit team that does all of the insane driving to get those shots are very particular about their cars, and of course the ones they insist on are Mercedes-Benz! The film was directed by Henry Corra, a New York-based filmmaker who also directed their Impact campaign from earlier this year. It is a great chance to see the yet-to-be-released ML63 AMG manuevering.
