    AMG Boss Ola Kallenius states he plans to expand the AMG model lineup

    AMG Boss Ola Kallenius stated in an interview he plans to expand the AMG model lineup. With added pressure from BMW with the 1M Coupe and with the Audi RS3 he stated that AMG models of the A and B class will not be ruled out. Additionally, the success of the SLS AMG means that Mercedes does not necessarily need to focus the larger production volume models to create AMG variants. There have been some rumors of a baby SLS to compete with the 911. Either way, we can expect AMG to roll out more models and turn up the heat which is exactly what we like to hear.

    How so? AMG is not like M, not to mention that the brand is much newer in comparison they have always stuck AMG motors in just about everything.

    At least they aren't just putting the badge on base models, changing the styling, and then saying job complete.

    Because to run M you have to rip your balls off and lock them in the trunk of a hybrid diesel.

    making a AMG A Class or B Class is basically diluting the brand. Same thing BMW is doing with the 1M.

    not really because they dont have the history and pedigree that the ///M division has, they have always had a AMG of just about every car they sell(if not every) so for them its not really selling out. The ///M division was known for na high revving engines in a driver oriented package,

    The AMG brand does not have the same storied history or precedent for certain decisions. From the beginning they have done far more models with shared motors than M ever dreamed of.

    In a way, AMG pushed BMW M toward dilution with the ML55 AMG forcing BMW to start thinking about M suv's and skirting the issue with the X5 4.6is.

    Szerintem az AMG-nek meg kell maradnia annak ami most hiszen a gyár 1967 óta létezik azon kellene gondolkodni hogy hogyan lehetne még jobb szebb erősebb biztonságosabb amg -ket gyártani mert ha elkezdik hígítín a BMW-vel szerintem az nem valami jó ötlet bár én sem igazán értem,hogy mi az hogy hígítás

    Translated from Hungarian:

    I think the AMG has to remain as it now exists as a factory since 1967 to be even better to think about how to better secure a stronger two-amg hígítín constructed because if you start to think that the BMW is not a good idea although I do not really I understand what it is that dilution
