OMG I so want one of those for years in my garage but with 2 Teen Terrorist living under my roof for the last 15 years I can,t afford new socks.:frown::frown:



It’s no secret that we’re big fans of the mad scientists behind Mercedes-AMG. They’ve given us the demonic CLK63, the SLS AMG, and the family-hauler from hell: the E63S Wagon. There’s one AMG, however, that still sends chills down our spine. It doesn’t get more sinister than “The Hammer.” Name another car that can only be read in Vincent Price’s voice? We’ll wait.

The concept was simple. Take a standard W124 (1985-1996) E-Class and attach the largest V-8 you can fit in it, and then murder it out. Ok, there’s definitely a lot more to it than just that, but you get the point. With a combination of its engine, widebody, subtle (back when subtle was a thing) AMG badging, and a name that made M5 owners cry, The Hammer is a German legend. “When there’s a Hammer in the house, nothing else matters,” says Chris Harris.

Check our take with Chris Harris on the AMG Hammer Coupe below: YES the video is from 2012 Chris still had hair........:D:D

I have a feeling my/our '55s might fit into the "attach the largest V-8 you can fit in it," category.

I can't even fit a socket wrench in there without detaching the power steering reservoir in order to change out the cam mag sensor :surprise: :wink:
