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."
