After that, last week the German producer announced AMG model electrification starting in 2021, now informs that the next generation of these high-performance cars will be created exclusively with four-wheel drive.
The Mercedes-AMG department, Tobias Moers, said its state-of-the-art models are no longer the primary customer choice and that it makes no sense to invest money in its development.
"Customers have answered us by their choice, and most of them want a four-wheel drive AMG", said Moers for the Brutal Bus.
"While manufacturing the AMG E class in two options – with rear and 4WD units, 90% of customers chose one unit in all four streams, and now in the new E63 we offer a" drift mode "that allows for smoother driving of the car rear-wheel drive, but it's a 4WD standard. "
This decision also relates to the AMG GT supersport, says Moers, as if it was discovered that his customers wanted mainly 4WD.
The AMG department has confirmed that V12 engines will soon be a thing of the past. The latest AMG V12 model is the S65 Final Edition, and Moers says it will soon be V8 drive units in some smaller models, such as the C63.
"It's V12, the next generation will use the Maybach S class, but not the AMG models", he adds.
