It’s not regular that you will drive an AMG however with the dispatch of the new IWC Ingenieur Chronograph Sport Edition for the 50th commemoration of AMG we got a welcome that brought back recollections of our AMG on Ice insight recently. Just this time we went to the AMG settle in Affalterbach, close to Stuttgart in Germany. With a tight timetable in various nations we went there via vehicle rather than the standard plane.

So in the wake of getting our rental we went towards Germany where we showed up following a couple of hours. Time to change the Mercedes 180 for an AMG GT s and the AMG E 63 s. When we plunked down in the driver’s seat we hang tight for the wizardry words “ESP off”, yet that won’t occur for the time being. We rapidly acknowledge there is an explanation behind ESP to remain turned on. On the moist and surprising streets we need all the footing there is to get the vehicles through the bends as quick as we need. With the back tire driven AMG GT s we as of now feel how the vehicle is looking for all the hold conceivable with the tremendous force that is put onto the wheels.

Driving through the German scene is quite amazing with all the little surprising streets and scene that changes among backwoods and totally open knolls. During the excursion we roll out a few improvements and when we get in the driver’s seat of the AMG E 63 s you plainly notice the distinction with the 4Matic and the back tire driver GTs. Insane how the force is sent to the black-top, even in the clammy conditions with the 4Matic. This vehicle just needs to go one way and that is forward!

During this experience we discover that these vehicles are significantly more fun when you can push them to their (and your own) limits in controlled conditions like a race track or the frozen lakes in Sweden. Nonetheless, it was a delight to have the option to have a ride on open streets while standing neighborhood rules and speed limits (for the most part) during this trip.

Upon our return we discover our way to the AMG workshops where the vehicles are being kept up. We see exclusive vehicles just as the F1 Safety vehicle and different AMG Driving Experience vehicles being chipped away at. Here we gain admittance to an AMG GT-R, the commemoration AMG GT-50 and an exemplary 300 SEL AMG. Combine that with the IWC Ingenieur Chronograph Sport Edition and a case brimming with other new IWC ingenieur timepieces and you can envision we had the photograph shoot that should not be taken lightly. It was extraordinary to perceive how we as a whole caused each other making some staggering pictures. Either by assisting with making the correct conditions or by setting up compositions.

Finally two or three hours in the carport we had taken all the pictures we needed and the time had come to bid farewell. In the wake of getting together the entirety of our photograph stuff and bidding farewell to everyone we proceeded with our outing to Switzerland for the following event.
