  1. Dear Giancarlo,
    That picture is not showing a Hammer and doesn’t give your readers the impression of the original Hammer.. We never used the super market grill and wheels, rear trunk spoiler and even front bumper and side skirts look like other tuner packages. The AMG package of that time looked sporty but always elegant. It was understated confidence.
    The video below is one of the original coupes.
    As far as colors, we build anything from white to black and any color in between in a coupe or sedan. The clients wishes were the only thing that counted. All company cars always came in black just like the coupe in the video. We even build one to look exactly like a 200 Diesel and had to place that sign on the trunk lid. Even the original taxi tail pipe was fitted on to the rear of the AMG exhaust system. Nothing but the AMG wheels (for speed reasons) and the sound gave the car away when the client went on the German highways hunting for super sports cars so he could play with them.
    We only started with the 5.6l engine and soon after went with the four valve 6 liter engine that exceeded 400hp.
    It was a phenomenal time and a amazing car and I hope AMG still has some of that spirit in their operations. Thanks to Herr Aufrecht, Herr Flugfelder, Herr Luetzelschwab and the many great people at AMG it was the company that felt like the “Pagani” of Germany at that time. Clients dreamed of things and the small team of enthusiasts went to work and build exactly what the client wanted no matter how difficult the task was.
    The new AMG E63 4matic is the hammer of todays time. I just hope that all the people making them today have as much fun in the process and create as many great memories as we at the time were able to do. ( viele gruesse an Martin und Peter)

    Thank you for the article,
