Men’s Style experienced the ‘Festival of AMG‘ up close and personal.
The recent opportunity to experience Mercedes-Benz’ full range of AMG vehicles around one of the world’s great race tracks was too good to pass up… and so Men’s Style didn’t.
The majestic Phillip Island was the backdrop as we were given a bespoke program created by Mercedes-Benz Australia’s Chief Driving Instructor Peter Hackett as part of the brand’s “Festival of AMG” held for Mercedes-Benz AMG owners.
From the A 45 through the CLA 45, C 63 S and the amazing Mercedes-AMG GT S, the day offered an insight not only into the elite performance cred of the AMG line but also its advanced safety features such as the radar-based Distronic Plus system, allowing the driver to automatically maintain a safe distance from the vehicle in front with the car braking when necessary and accelerating again when possible. When the traffic situation requires heavier braking, the driver is warned by visual and acoustic signals.
Skid pan driving and some laps around the circuit with one-on-one tuition from experienced race car drivers helped demonstrate the race-bred performance of the cars in a day that couldn’t help but make converts of all who participated.
