Mercedes-Benz will create a new AMG sub brand to take on Audi and BMW

Article by Andrew Christian, on August 1, 2014

In order to boost its sales, Mercedes-Benz is planning a new range of AMG Sport models what will be slotted beneath its well-known AMG vehicles. The new vehicles will take on the S models from Audi but also on the BMW M Performance lineup. What’s more interesting is that Mercedes-Benz will offer its new models with petrol as well as with diesel engines, although not every model will get a diesel.

Autocar says that these new vehicles will feature widened tracks similar to those used by the current AMG models. Mercedes-Benz will offer its new AMG Sport models based on the A, B, C, E and S-Class as well as GL, M, GLK and GLA Class.

We already know that Mercedes-Benz is working on the C450 AMG and this model will sit above the C400 and the upcoming C63 AMG. It will be powered by a 3.0-liter V6 petrol engine, delivering around 367 hp.

Power will be sent to the rear wheels but as an option Mercedes-Benz will offer the 4Matic four-wheel-drive system. Meanwhile, the new C63 AMG will arrive at the 2014 Paris Motor Show, powered by the all-new 4.0-liter V8 engine that will be found on the 2015 Mercedes-AMG GT.

The new 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine replaces the naturally aspirated 6.2-liter V8. More details to be revealed
