    What's your favorite Mercedes-Benz AMG model?

    If you could have any new Mercedes-Benz AMG model which would it be?

    I've purposely excluded the Black Series cars because they're limited production. SLR is not an AMG car. I've purposely excluded the G55 and the R63 because if you pick those cars there's something wrong with you.

    Finally, some of these cars may not be sold in your market and some markets might have additional cars I'm not aware of. If that's the case: tough.

    Either of the CLs will do thank you but I'm not familiar enough with them to choose the 'most suitable'

    They need an SLK 63, the 55 engine doesn't seem very well designed for natural aspiration to me. But if they could fit the 6.3 liter in there it would haul.

    C63, as fast as the CLS 63 but cheaper. The E63 comes in a close second.

    I'd like a black series CLK63 AMG
    but out of the list, the CL65

    I wonder if a SL73 would be nice

    I'll say SL63, but there's no way I'd ever buy an AMG product over anything else on the market. Not my kinda thing. Also, the G55 works, as big and dumb and SUVey as it is, it is based on something that actually goes off-road and it's so much cooler than any other SUV. Which is like saying it's cooler than the sun, but at least they're slightly better.

    C63 for me too. The CLS63 is second. But for just one AMG to have to to hold for all time, it'll be the C63. It's got power, really nice styling (to me), and it's a usable size, not too big, not too small.

    E63.

    Perfect size and brutally quick. The wagon version is actually worth a look at as well (0-60 in 4.1s in a station wagon is just completely amazing).

    Toss up between c63 and e63, went for C.
    Miscommunication seems to be a direct result of misplaced, text based sarcasm.

    92-94 Merc 500E.

    If you know why, you know why.

    Überschleeper

    Second write-in, Merc SL73 AMG. A Zonda engine in the last-gen SL. Über-über-Schadenfreude!
    Whatever: How to Make a Schadenfreude Pie

    Ü-Ber! Ü-Ber! Ü-Ber! everyone take two drinks.

    Point is, AMG was always about subtlety. The 500E could pass by even the most salty gearhead unnoticed because the only outward evidence that it was once (and to a degree still is) one of the fastest sedans ever made are those delicious, provocatively engorged front fenders (wings, whatthafukeva).

    If only modern stylists could still their quivering pens when sketching the bodywork of cars today (which, for the record, have never been faster or better) like Ze Germans once did in the '70s, '80s and early '90s, then we'd all inhabit a world made richer by the surviving art of the Q-car.

    A tan 1973 Chevrolet Biscayne with an upholstered tube chassis and a 454 Rat Motor is a sleeper. A 500E is a Q-car; it's the same difference there is between an ex-Sammy Hagar Gibson Les Paul and an Ex-Niccolò Paganini Stradivarius. Done right, Q-cars are things of exquisite, elegant, timeless beauty, and crafting them has, in this Brave New Decade, become a lost art in this 'Quail's humble opinion.

    The Scooby STiD and BMW 335 are modern nods to the Q-car, but they seem to miss the mark so thoroughly nailed by the 500E and the Merc 450 SEL 6.9 before it. The current crop of AMG-badged strumpet is about as subtle as a Max Mosley brothel-crawl, and we all know now how those can end in tears.

    Sqüawk!

    I'll have the CL65, CLS 63 in 2nd and the E 63 is third. the CL65 has killer looks. i dont like the new SLs and the C63 looks overdone. i wonder if they will make a CLC63 and a GLK63??

    I don't care that you left it off, the CLK63 Black. Actually in black.

    A little late to the "not on the list" party, but a welcome addition and one that can only be classified as an oversight.
