Mercedes-AMG to unveil new Sport models
Seeking to expand its global sales, Mercedes-AMG will further broaden its performance family with the introduction of a new line of AMG Sport vehicles. The first two are scheduled to launch at the 2015 Detroit Auto Show in January. Based on the teaser images, they look to be based on the new C-Class Sedan and upcoming M-Class 4-door coupe derivative to be called the GLE Coupe under M-B's new nomenclature.
Intended to make the AMG name and technology more accessible to more buyers at a more enticing pricepoint, the new AMG Sport models - and others to follow - will come with upgraded engines and all-wheel-drive as standard and use the same chassis components and brake systems found on existing AMG models. The tangible result will be "signature AMG driving dynamics and a highly emotional driving experience."
The first two AMG Sport models are set to be unveiled at the International Auto Show in Detroit in January 2015 with additions to this new product line in due course.
According to Tobias Moers, Chairman of the Board of Management of Mercedes-AMG GmbH, these new AMG Sports offerings will help boost annual sales of the performance division beyond the 40,000 mark, more than double what it was in 2013.
