With the announcement that Dodge will bring forth the apocalypse Hellcat Charger, where does that leave Bavaria in the mighty sedan horsepower wars? Well frankly, it leaves them in the dust.

The E63 hustles down […]
On an AMG Monday Morning Wake-Up Call in October we showed you an exhaust sound battle between an E92 BMW M3 and a Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG. In that last battle the cars were standing still.

The brand’s sales success can be attributed to the CLA-Class that has recently gone on sale.
