GALLERY: 2015 Mercedes-Benz AMG Super Convoy Tours Johor, Melaka, KLInsights
Mercedes-AMG’s most recent introduction of compact AMG vehicles have taken the globe by storm. As one of their fastest-growing models in the line-up today, the “baby” 45 AMGs come in four shapes to date (A-, CLA-, GLA and CLA Shooting Brake), and boast the world’s most powerful mass-produced 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine, which has played a massive role to the car’s overall appeal.
Last weekend, 42 AMG owners from across the country gathered together for a drive that would mark the largest Mercedes-AMG drive we’ve seen here yet. The convoy would take them from Johor, where seven participants lived, to Melaka (another 2) and back to KL, where a majority of 33 AMG owners reside.
Needless to say, the participants enjoyed the ride, with a founding member of the group, Ahmad Risdan, sharing:
“The event was a success for everyone, especially the committee member who had put lots of effort in organizing the event. There was never a formal meeting done apart from the discussions over the phone and social networks – the committee mostly consists of members from KL, Melaka and JB.
“We are also glad that the participants were very pleased with the event, especially when after all this time, a lot of them have never really met each other in person. One of the participants who is based in Dubai flew the day before just to join the TT and fly back on the same day in the evening.
“It was a good gathering, as if at a normal “The Tarik” or “TT,” except that it was done in a very big group this time. We consider it as “objective complete,” managing to get such a big group together and sharing their stories about what we think is one of the best cars ever produced by Mercedes and AMG. For now, we're aiming to host the largest AMG convoy in the world."
The AMG 45 Club, as they call themselves, will be looking to organise another drive before the end of this year, and if you plan on joining them with your AMG, all you need to do is to sign up for the AMG Private Lounge, and they’ll be in touch.
