Can anyone explain to me why AMG refuses to release their production numbers?

"We kindly ask you for your understanding that we can’t communicate vehicle production or edition numbers." - AMG Private Lounge

Any number of other marques have "registries" (or at least full factory production numbers on all variants of their builds available). Why all the secrecy? :frown:

If you are on the AMGPrivateLounge, perhaps you can find the answer there.


Possible reasons:
Trying to keep the appearance of exclusivity.
If you found out that 1000's of your model existed would you feel better, or worse?


They retro fit as a performance specialist.
Do they include, or exclude these?


Latest blot, AMG packages on cars that are not AMG.
Include/exclude.

I cannot help with overall production numbers but here in the UK there is a site https://www.howmanyleft.co.uk/ which gleans there information from the UK DVLA (Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency) and for the SLK55 R172 the highest total number of cars licenced and notified as off road in anyone year is 533. The latest number is 528. With the SLK55 R171 the highest total number of cars licenced in anyone year is 740. The latest figures reveal that this has reduced to 681. So both variants of the car are very rare compared with the 37.1million total vehicles registered in the UK.

I have been MIA for a long time.

I bought a 2015 Lexus RC-F (V8, Full F model) about a couple of years ago and I still got my SLK55 AMG, but don't drive it much anymore.

I, too tried to find out how many "FULL F MODEL RC-F" produced for 2015, 2016, and 2017. But Lexus HQ will not release the info. The only numbers I can find is the aggregate of total "RC" series with the majority of the non RC-F variants.

Both SLK55 AMG and the RC-F are very rare indeed!!

No, they won't tell. I have seen a number of requests for production numbers there and they won't give them. I think AMG's attitude to these requests is 'none of your business'.
