Most Insane Cars Ever Made by AMG
Mercedes-AMG is a performance-enhancing division. Almost every Mercedes-Benz car in the current lineup has an AMG variant, which tells you a lot about the demand this tuning company has created.
Mercedes-AMG has created some of the most insane and interesting cars throughout its history. Below are some of them which stood out:
Mercedes-Benz SL65 AMG Black (2009)
The Mercedes-Benz SL-Class has always been a roadster, and it still is. However, back in 2009, some engineers got a crazy idea to produce a coupe version of it. That coupe version turned out to be the monstrous SL65, which featured a 661 HP V12. Sadly, it was fitted with a not-so-good 5-speed transmission, which held it back a lot.
Mercedes-Benz 300E AMG (1987)
Just imagine how crazy a car has to be to earn the nickname “Hammer”? Mercedes-Benz 300E was the car that put AMG on the map. This E-Class variant of the AMG embarrassed some of the most prominent sports cars of the 1980s. It featured a massive 6.0 V8 that produced 380 HP, which is a lot according to the standards back in the 1980s.
Mercedes-Benz SL73 AMG (1995)
It seems that the engineers at the AMG really loved the SL-Class back then. In 1995, AMG went insane and created a gigantic 7.3 L V12 engine. They decided to put this engine in the 1995 model of the SL-Class. The car was named SL73, and it is still one of the most insane cars ever made by AMG. This 7.3 L V12 AMG was later used in Pagani Zonda Hypercar.
Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG Wagon (2007)
Car enthusiasts around the world absolutely adore the wagon. However, the case is much different in the USA. To attract buyers in the U.S., Mercedes-Benz decided to team up with AMG to produce an insane variant of the E-Class wagon. The E63 wagon featured a massive 6.2 L V8 that produced 507 HP. The wagon could tear the road by going at 0-60 mph in just 4.0 seconds.
Mercedes-Benz R63 AMG (2007)
MPVs are usually perceived as slow vehicles that are best for family hangouts and school runs. However, back in 2007, some guys at AMG thought it would be fun to tune an MPV to take on sports cars. The result was the R63 AMG that featured a naturally aspirated V8 engine capable of producing 507 HP. As expected, it didn’t do well in sales, but at least AMG got one more vehicle for their crazy collection.
Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 6×6 (2013)
What’s better than a G-Wagon for offroading? A G-Wagon with 6 wheels!! In 2013, AMG introduced to the world its craziest version of the G-Wagon. This mammoth truck weighs well over 4 tons but still manages to hit 60 mph from a still start in 7.8 seconds. That was all because of the 5.5L V8 twin-turbo engine that poured out 536 HP and 561 lb-ft of torque.
