The Best of Mercedes-AMG. We spend 2 days on the tracks of Willow Springs with 41 AMGs... doing 150mph in the SLS black series, exploring the desert with the G63, peeking at the late night garage repairs, and more!
Firstly, NOTCOT's love of AMG is no secret. In nearly a decade of NOTCOT, our adventures visiting the AMG factory in Affalterbach, meeting the man behind our engine, and getting a test lap in one of the first C63 Coupés on the Bremen test track while visiting the factory... still ranks as one of the most incredible things we've experienced over the years. Well, i guess Mercedes-AMG just topped that...
I just spent the last two days at Willow Springs International Raceway experiencing the Best of Mercedes-AMG. With 41 AMG vehicles and over 16,000 horsepower there was a lot of driving to do. So far, we've shown you the donut duel between the C63 507 edition sedan and coupé.
The two days were a dream. I did 150mph in the SLS AMG Black Series, a beautiful machine with exceptional performance. Yes, that was like a face melting 1.2G in the corners... Went desert exploring in the G63. Found the E63 AMG 4Matic to be a surprising race car hidden in a station wagon body. Did laps with Maxi aka Maximilian Götz - who lived up to his reputation as quite the driver! Got a taste of just how fun the AMG Driving Academy is with its head, Reinhold Renger. And even got a peek into the garages late at night where they worked on all the cars till the wee hours of the morning to get ready for the next day. Take a peek below at the adventures with Mercedes-AMG... as anyone who has driven one knows, the power of the AMG engines feel amazing. Getting to play with them all on the track... that was truly another kind of rush.
