AMG was founded as a racing engine forge in 1967 by former Mercedes-Benz engineers; the letters 'AMG' taken from their names; Aufecht, Melcher and Großaspach. In 1990, with AMG having become a high-profile purveyor of modified Mercedes-Benz cars, Daimler-Benz AG and AMG signed a contract of co-operation allowing AMG to leverage Daimler-Benz's extensive dealer network and leading to commonly developed vehicles (the first one being the Mercedes-Benz C36 AMG, in 1993). On 1st January 1999, DaimlerChrysler acquired 51 percent of AMG shares and AMG was re-named to Mercedes-AMG. In 1995, the C-Class received its first genuine performance model, the C 36 AMG, to counter the new six-cylinder BMW M3. Developed with AMG, it had racing-tuned suspension and the 3.6 litre engine had a general output of 276bhp. The C36 AMG accelerates from 0-60mph in 5.8 seconds and top speed was limited to 155mph - an unlimited top speed was recorded at 169mph.
This well presented C36 in metallic pearl green with carbon trim and black leather is described as a very well maintained original car with a service history and a number of MoT test certificates to support its credentials. With unmarked AMG alloy wheels and working climate control, coupled with an MoT test certificate valid until 5th August 2015 and a V5 registration document. This interesting Mercedes-Benz is offered for sale at a very attractive price given the estimate, for quality and performance, look no further.
