AMG Will Launch High-Performance Diesel By 2011

Wa-HOOOO! That’s what you’ll be saying (either literally or to yourself) when you step on the gas peddle of the AMG-massaged diesel that’ll be rolling out by 2011. That is, if Volker Mornhinweg, the boss of Mercedes’ tuning division, has his way.

Herr Mornhinweg described the upcoming model as an updated version of the legendary AMG Hammer. “This car will be the Super Hammer,” said Mornhinweg. Again, allow me to repeat myself: “Wa-HOOOO!” I’m not that big of a sedan guy, but the first AMG Hammer was flat out stunning. Durn thing accelerated like a WRC car in the hands of Sebastien Loeb – and you know how heavy Mercedes-Benz are, right? And what makes this so uber cool is that it’s an oil burner. Which means two things:

1 – Better mileage, and

2 – You could potentially, probably run the thing on bio-diesel

Interesting possibilities, no?

Anyway, this new iteration won’t be some big honker of a car, like a large coupe or sedan, because Volker Mornhinweg has already said that he prefers the idea of a smaller, lighter and more efficient car. Yeah-yeah, right Volker, smaller, lighter and more efficient … cloak it all you want in those terms, but to me “smaller & lighter” translates into high performance. It’s likely to be based on a C-class diesel, such as the C320.

So bring on 2011 I say. This could be a lot of (responsible) fun.
