CLK DTM – Imo the ultimate AMG poster child. Old skool V8, super rare (only 40 in rhd), racing derived & achingly gorgeous 💨Image: Madwhips

CL63 AMG. Best of both worlds. Brute power with luxury of an S Class.Image: MotorTrend

SL55 AMG. Very rare model. Don’t even see them on the road nowadays. It shares the same 5.4L engine with one of the best and well built hypercars ever (Mclaren SLR). Has a supercharger in a fricken Mercedes. It’s the model that took AMG’s name and got it to be properly recognised.Image: Autocar

For me and most of the commenters above it has to be the W204 C63 AMG, this car was THE defining AMG of our generation in South Africa! From the brutal sound and ferocity of the M156 6.2l naturally aspirated V8 to it’s dominating reputation of being the modern day muscle car and 4 door drift beast, this car was the reason for South Africa being one of the biggest consumers of AMG cars in the world!Image: Mercedes-Benz

The 1957 “Gullwing” 300SL. Elegant, sophisticated and sheer class. Top speed of 260km/h and for its time had one of the most advanced suspensions. Although pre-AMG era, this car deserves the AMG badge more than any other car listed here.Image: Pinterest
