Stuttgart, Germany – Following the extremely successful launch of the new C-Class, Mercedes-AMG GmbH is proud to present the top model of the new range, the C 32 AMG. The exceptional qualities of this compact sports sedan, which will arrive in the showrooms in spring 2001, are reflected in its impressive technical credentials: equipped with a compressor-type supercharger, the 3.2-liter V6 engine generates 260 kW/354 hp while its remarkable maximum torque of 450 newton meters outclasses every other series production car in this segment, demonstrating, once again, that Mercedes-AMG GmbH is second to none when it comes to developing outstanding high-performance automobiles.  

"The new C 32 AMG represents a logical progression in our highly successful model strategy. We have created the sportiest C-Class ever in order to offer our demanding clients a state-of-the-art sports sedan which provides a truly engaging driving experience. With its powerful yet decidedly eco-friendly supercharged engine, it turns every mile into an unashamed celebration of dynamic driving pleasure," says Dr. Wolfgang Bernhard, Head of the managerial board of Mercedes-AMG GmbH. "As far as the direct competition is concerned, the C 32 AMG will be the benchmark for some time to come. But the AMG version of the new C-Class is only the beginning: Mercedes-AMG GmbH will be providing even more striking examples of its expertise with high-performance supercharged engines in the future."
