Mercedes product manager Gerd Junginger has revealed the company's decision not to build an AMG variant of the E-Class Coupe and Convertible was a mistake.

Speaking to Piston Heads, Junginger said the decision was made seven years ago when AMG had a more focused strategy. Now the company offers a plethora of AMG variants and Junginger contends “seen from now, yes it was a mistake" not to make an E63 AMG Coupe and Convertible.

Thankfully the company appears to have learned their lesson as Junginger said “next time we won’t make the same mistake.” This is a blessing and a curse as it's too late to offer an AMG variant of the current models so we'll have to wait until the next-generation arrives sometime later this decade.
