Last Friday we broke the story of the Mystery AMG to debut in New York. And now, MB USA just issued a statement this afternoon confirming this as Mercedes celebrates AMG's 40th anniversary.

What a let down, since we just reported today the CL 65 debuted at Amsterdam's AutoRAI in The Netherlands. Looking back at the AMG Private Lounge site, Mercedes chose their words carefully. Never did they mention "world premiere" but instead used "unveil", "latest edition" and "new model". So, naturally enthusiasts jumped to conclusions of never seen before Mercedes model such as the SLS, CLE which are truly a mystery...for now.
However, Mercedes stated that information about "other new Mercedes-Benz vehicles making their debut in New York" would be released at the show. As previously mentioned, most likely the new C-Class but it would be really cool if it were another AMG such as the CLK 63 AMG Black Series which seems to be the consensus from the comments we received. In my eyes, Mercedes would redeem themselves with such a move.
Stay tuned, Mercedes will release more CL 65 photos tomorrow.[UPDATE 03.29.07]
Apparently the CL 65 is not the Mystery AMG after all. Mercedes announcing its debut in New York just one day after its Amsterdam world premiere seemed to be anti-climatic. Not thinking Mercedes would make two big simultaneous debuts in American, I took the bait. Ignoring those sneak peak photos of the carbon fiber front bumper fascia and rear wing was the key in determining the CL 65 was not the Mystery AMG. But the question still remains: CLK Black Series?
