      Congratulations and well deserved. The interior is as stunning as the rest of the car.

      Thanks again!

      AMG Private Lounge hosted a driving event at Laguna Seca in October. Our coupe was very well received amongst a sea of 70+ contemporary AMG examples.

      AMG put on a spectacular event which included hot laps with a professional drivers in their AMG CLS63 and AMG SLS63. They also organized an autocross event giving visitors an opportunity to throw the AMG C63's around the course.

      Thank you for saving history!

      If anyone has more technical info on the DOHC engine or knows someone that might please let me know. The heads above are missing the intake/exhaust valve,springs, cups and keepers. Thanks in advance.



      BTW, AMG themselves currently do not have any information on their early years.

      If anyone has a lead please drop me a PM. Thanks!

      I have these rims in a 16" however I believe they are 16x8 or 8.5 I had them on my W123 Model Mercedes back in the early 90's... back when people thought 15's were BIG I will go in the attic and double check the dimensions. Brought them over from Germany. I'll sell them if you know someone else interested in a set of these!
