Profile

Back in the days when 200bhp was serious power, AMG pioneered the super saloon with their 385bhp Mercedes 300 based 'Hammer'. The colossal 6 litre Merc V8 pushed the Hammer to 60mph in just 5.1sec, onto a top speed of 185mph - just about the fastest saloon around in the late 1980s.

The Hammer featured a luxury, leather bound interior but remained a wolf in sheep's clothing from the outside with few visual clues to the power that lay beneath.

Unfortunately, all that power came at a cost. The 29 examples made cost an eye watering 110,000 - expensive now, but a genuinely staggering price 20 years ago!
