When will AMG get the credit it deserves? I am a C55 AMG owner and granted this is NOT a C55 but much more special. AMG has turned out beast after beast and very rarely gets the attention the M's get (M3 at least). One must understand, AMG is typically taking a soft, tame, boat of an auto (see: most stock MB's) that grandpa just loves for it's nice, smooth ride and frankensteining them into some of the most radical productions cars on the road. The numbers are staggering-hp, torque, 0-60. Even my lil C55 pumps out near 400 hp and is sub 4 secs 0-60 and that's a "starter AMG". No, there is no AWD and there is no manual shift but if a sports car can get it done with good old fashioned RWD and grunt- what's wrong with that? Also, even in Europe, the manual shift is dying as they all realize that the "manumatic", "tiptronic" type shifting is actually quicker than manual.Ok, for all you die-hards that need a clutch I get it- go get an M3 or 5, audi or maybe a 911. I don't have any problem with that but understand that the manual shift is only alive because of american demand and may soon be gone-like it or not. What else can carry you in such opulence, inside and out, give you rrom for 4 and their luggage and still snap your passengers' necks off at C2-C3? Only an AMG.
