Mercedes-Benz has announced the AMG Sport family of high-performance models

Mercedes-Benz has announced the AMG Sport family of high-performance models.

According to the German manufacturer, they will offer “enhanced performance and technical refinements” and will fill the gap between the AMG Sports package for Mercedes-Benz vehicles and the classic AMG models. It will compete against the likes of the BMW's M Performance range.

The lineup will be offered with upgrated engines, all-wheel drive as standard in selected markets and special chassis components and brake systems from the AMG models.

The first two models of the AMG Sport range will be revealed during the Detroit International Auto Show in January 2015. Judging by the sloping roofline of the left vehicle from the photo above, one of the models could be the GLE Coupe. It is planned to add further models to this new product line in due course.

“The new Sport models represent a convincing proposition for our customers: genuine sports car technology becomes accessible, appealing to an even broader-ranging clientele worldwide,” AMG CEO Tobias Moers comments. “For all our dynamic growth, we remain true to our brand claim of “Driving Performance”.
