AMG's Tobias Moers Doesn't Spill a Lot of Beans in This Interview

One of the most talked about stereotypes about Germans is their lack of – or should we say peculiar – sense of humor, but if were to judge their entire population from the following interview we would say that those stereotypes are either unfounded or vastly exaggerated.

Officially at the helm of AMG since the beginning of October, Tobias Moers' heart is apparently 100% pumping gasoline in his veins.

He has worked at AMG in various positions since 1994 and he was also behind the very first Black Series - the MY 2006 SLK 55 AMG Black Series – which was pretty much the start of a new era at the Affalterbach performance brand.

In the following interview, conducted by three of Motor Trend's editors, Tobias Moers is asked a number of mildly uncomfortable questions about the AMG brand and its future products.

In a very elegant and amusing way, the new AMG boss lets it slip that 2014 will be a very important year for the performance brand, hinting most likely at the upcoming C190 project and the M177 engine, but you better watch the whole interview to get a better idea.
