here is some ink on my Hammer!


The origins of AMG designation


By Nigel Matthews,

The AMG designation on some Mercedes-Benz models dates back to 1967.
It comes from the names of two former Mercedes-Benz engineers, and a place! The engineers were Hans Werner Aufrecht (the A) and Erhard Melcher (the M) and the G stands for Grossaspach, Aufrecht's birthplace.
In 1976 AMG moved from Burgstall to Affalterbach. In January 1999, Daimler-Chrysler acquired 51 per cent of AMG shares and AMG was renamed Mer-cedes-AMG GmbH.
During the 1980s, the supply of simply outrageous sedans was very limited. If you wanted a family sedan that would blow the doors off a Lamborghini Countach there was only one option -- the three-pointed star of a AMG Hammer.
AMG spent most of 1986 building just 13 Hammers. The list of modifications is very extensive, so I will list some of the important features. The engine of choice was the 5.6L V8 from the 560 SEC. AMG waved their magic wand over it and it became a 6.0L, 385-hp beast with 420 ft-lbs. of torque (566Nm).
AMG modified an S-class rear sub-frame to accommodate the W126 differential; the AMG attention to detail even included a stainless steel underbody to reduce the drag coefficient.
The cubic dollars involved to create these 296 km/h super sedans amounted to $175,000.
This car is actually for sale in the U.S. If you think you are brave enough to handle its wicked torque curve, the asking price a mere $45,000 US. Firm.

Just curious, how did you use it? It has 86500 miles on it. How were those miles typically driven, and approximately how many miles per year? Was this a weekend car that was taken out on special occasions, or was it driven more frequently than that?

You are holding PURE MBZ history right there.

I would LOVE this car but for this money I would want to drive it but on a car like this, I would just place it in my garage and stare at it.

Good Luck!

Well, ask AMG and other race car drivers about the first 25k miles before it came to the states. I would imagine, balls to the walls. As you are probably aware, Mercedes that sit end up dead. I can only comment on the last 6k miles or so, but usually on the weekends, quick runs to a dinner or lunch with friends, car show here and there. How many of the miles over 100mph? Ill let your imagination kick in.

I saw your E60/500e conversion thread, are you interested in my Hammer? Saw you had a friend in AZ interested is he/she?
