From its humble beginnings hotting up humdrum Mercedes sedans, AMG has now become a serious player in its own right.
Australia has a huge love affair with these hi-po Mercs; in fact, per capita Aussies buy more AMGs than any other nation. In 2015, more than 4000 were sold thanks largely to the popularity of its four-cylinder '45' models and the arrival of the new C63.
And that number is likely to increase sharply in 2016 and beyond as Affalterbach rapidly expands its range. The new twin-turbo V6 '43' range, that will ecompass everything from the C class to the GLC small SUV, lands later in 2016, with the new E63 and an expanded GT sports car range arriving in 2017.
For now, here is a list of all 49 (!) models AMG currently makes.
