Thanks for visiting my blog! Please contact me if you're thinking about purchasing a Mercedes-Benz in the
I never really thought of myself as an AMG driver. Obviously they are amazing vehicles and I love to drive them on the track…I just couldn’t envision myself needing that much power on a daily basis. However, the CLA45 AMG seems to be calling my name! That is a LOT of look and a LOT of power for not a lot of money. It will arrive stateside later this year…I might be ready for an upgrade by then!
Check out these videos and let me know if you need to pre-order!
The 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA45 AMG is scheduled to arrive about a month after the 2014 CLA250 this fall. This will be the most affordable AMG vehicle ever released and is sure to be a winner! The base price is estimated at $47,470 and includes all of the engineering brilliance you would expect from an AMG product. The order banks are open!
Just added to the Future Vehicles section at MBUSA.com…
“The 2014 Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG’s S model offers almost 600 horsepower, but we bet few people are terribly disappointed that it’s actually 23 shy. And with 590 lb-ft of torque testing the traction limits on all four tires, it’s hard to feel anything but a giddy sense of awe.”
“In a masterstroke of customer understanding, Mercedes will offer E63 wagon buyers—i.e., enlightened lunatics—only the higher-output tune.”
“Our tech department’s educated guess predicts that the E63 can hit 60 mph in just 3.4 seconds, the S in 3.3, and either version can complete a quarter-mile blitzkrieg in less than 12 seconds.”

“The sculptured front end gives it an even more distinctive look than its predecessor and helps to separate it visually from the standard E-class.”
“In range-topping S-model specification, which replaces the performance package option, AMG’s forced induction unit kicks out 577 hp and 590 lb-ft — 25 hp and 89 lb-ft more than the BMW M5′s twin-turbocharged 4.4-liter V8 and 21 hp and 40 lb-ft more than the CTS-V’s supercharged 6.2-liter V8.”
“The result is more dependable feel on challenging back roads, something that allows the driver to delve further into the E63 AMG S-model 4Matic’s considerable performance with greater confidence than ever before.”
“It is the consummate all-season supercar for the family man.”
Take a look at the gorgeous car! This is a 2013 Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG coupe that we special ordered with the Porcelain/Black Two-Tone Nappa Leather and the Carbon Fiber Trim. This car is currently available for sale!
2013 Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG
Mercedes-Benz is sharing a lot of AMG information today! We now have a gallery of pictures for the 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLS63 AMG 4MATIC on the Mercedes-Benz Facebook page!
This is the first mention I have seen of the S-Model nomenclature. This type of upgrade has been available as the P30 or P31 Performance Package on several AMG models. The badging should help others to recognize that you don’t just have the 550 horsepower AMG but the 577 horsepower and almost 600 lb-ft of torque version!
Now I have to practice saying “2014-Mercedes-Benz-CLS-63-AMG-4MATIC-S Model.” I am sure we can add a -TRONIC or -ASSIST in there somewhere!
The 2014 Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG 4MATIC is everywhere this week! Official pictures have been released, details are being confirmed and it will debut at the Detroit Auto Show next week!
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!
