On the road to Rio in an AMG.

Adrenaline rushing, you wipe the sweat from your brow and take up the starting position. You can smell your own sweat, hear the roar and feel the rumble but you just concentrate on the route ahead. There’s been so much build up as you’ve been training for this day since you first realised your dream. You’ve played this moment out in your head thousands of times before but nothing could have prepared you for the magnitude of the event

No, we’re not talking about competing at the Olympics. We’re talking about getting behind the wheel of an AMG for the very first time.

It’s fair to say that if an AMG were to compete in any Olympic event, it would be the sprint with the GT going for gold by accelerating from 0-62mph in just 4 seconds. It would also dominate any long distance running event too, as a 4.0-litre V8 biturbo engine ensures unwavering endurance even at the top speed of 189mph.

The AMG models are our very own athletes. Each one has their own hand-crafted character that is extremely focussed in exceeding expectations, setting the standard and leaving the competition desperate to keep up. Engineered to perfection, they combine sporty looks with dynamic capabilities to ensure a medal worthy performance is produced every time.

Just like Olympians, AMG models really are the best of the best.
