Now, this year's show — less than a month away — will see the debut of the real thing: Mercedes' latest take on blurring the line between a performance sedan and a so-called four-door coupe. To help build anticipation, a set of spy-themed photos of the four-door GT have been released, complete with camouflage.

Project ONE: SlashGear interviews AMG Head Tobias Moers

Project ONE: SlashGear interviews AMG Head Tobias Moers

Almost all car makers have made promises about putting a street-legal race car on the road, by which they really mean a road car with race car power and speed. AMG, on the other hand, intends to put a literal one in consumer’s hands. At least that was the big splash it made in Frankfurt last September when it unveiled the Project ONE hypercar, which not only leave other road cars in its dust but even looked like an F1 speed demon. At the North America International Auto Show (NAIAS), Vincent Nguyen, SlashGear's Editor-in-Chief got a chance to sit with Tobias Moers, Chief Executive of AMG, to get his insight on Project ONE, electrifying the future, and, of course, the MBUX.

The 2019 Mercedes-AMG CLS53 is one mean-looking hybrid

There's no denying that Mercedes-AMG makes a good looking sports sedan, and the 2019 AMG CLS 53 is an excellent example of the breed. Announced at the Detroit Auto Show 2018 today, the (arguably most striking) member of the new 53-series promises no shortage of speed from its 429 horsepower. However, there's also an electrified surprise under the hood.

Spy shots show revised Mercedes-Benz AMG C43 and C63 rockin’ camo

We love to see spy shots of new and changed cars around here and the latest round of spy shots shows that some changes to the Mercedes-Benz C class AMG flavors are coming. It's hard to tell which car is grey and which is black in some of these spy shots, but the gray car is the C43 Coupe and the black one is the C63 Coupe.

Project One And Electrification Take Center Stage at Frankfurt for Mercedes-Benz

Mercedes-Benz took the Frankfurt Auto Show with both a bang and a whirr as it showcased not just a world-beating Mercedes-AMG Project One 'hypercar' - the brand's first foray into such rarefied air in well over a decade - but also several facets of its electrification strategy, which figures ever more prominently in the plans of all global automakers.

Mercedes teases AMG Project One, its 1,000HP hybrid F1 supercar

With the 2017 Frankfurt International Motor Show just over a week away, Mercedes-Benz has taken to teasing its new Mercedes-AMG Project One, a street-legal, Formula 1-inspired hybrid supercar. While the car maker has already shown off the high-tech powertrain, it's kept the body design tightly under wraps. But it's starting to draw the curtain back, with a new image that hints at a low-riding, angular shape.

2018 Mercedes-AMG S63 First Drive: Fiercely relaxing

2018 Mercedes-AMG S63 First Drive: Fiercely relaxing

Throbbing red and scented with bespoke perfume, the 2018 Mercedes-AMG S63's cabin made absolutely clear that, even by Stuttgart's standards, this is no ordinary luxury sedan. Still, to describe the 2018 S-Class as an important car for Mercedes-Benz is to damn it with understatement. What's under its handsome sheet metal doesn't just represent the pinnacle of the automaker's engineering efforts, but in effect sets a roadmap for the rest of its vehicles over the next ten years.

Mercedes-AMG GT Concept is a hybrid for hooligans

Mercedes-AMG has made a hybrid, but the GT Concept unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show today is not your Uber driver's Prius. A sleek and attention-grabbing four-door coupe, the trick to appreciating the GT Concept is to look past the hot red bodywork. The real meat is underneath.

2017 Mercedes-AMG C43 sedan, coupe and cabriolet first-drive

2017 Mercedes-AMG C43 sedan, coupe and cabriolet first-drive

It's hard to argue with the Mercedes-AMG 43 range, filling the gap between your bread & butter 'Benz and the potent-but-pricey AMG 63 cars. None exemplify the strategy of balancing power, luxury, and price like the 2017 Mercedes-AMG C43, either. Faced with the opportunity to test out all three variations - sedan, coupe, and cabriolet - I had one big question. Had the AMG spirit been shed along with the big-ticket price?

2017 Mercedes-AMG E43 First Drive: AMG for all

2017 Mercedes-AMG E43 First Drive: AMG for all

You could argue that the 2017 Mercedes-AMG E43 is a double-tweener. Just as the E-Class slots in-between its C and S siblings, so the Mercedes-AMG line sits in the gap between the mainstream Mercedes-Benz series and full AMG cars. The automaker is upfront about the fact that it saw unfilled "white space" between models like the C300 and the C63, and figured there'd be an audience of drivers wanting some of the performance and cachet of the latter but at a more affordable price.
