As it was expected from yesterday's press releases concerning the Germans' global sales and those in the US, most markets where Mercedes-Benz is present have beaten all previous records. Today it's time for those in the UK to brag about the rises in registrations.
According to UK's Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders, August was yet another record-breaking month for Mercedes-Benz UK.

Their best-ever year-to-date registrations helped them achieve a record market share of 4.6 percent, with over 64,779 new Mercedes-Benz cars having left the British showrooms so far in 2013's first eight months.

As we were mentioning in yesterday's news about Mercedes-Benz's global sales momentum, the Stuttgart manufacturer continues to grow faster than both the entire new cars market and the other competitor premium brands.

On top of all of the above, AMG is also by far the fastest-growing performance cars brand in the UK, with monthly registrations rising a staggering 142 percent (116 new cars), while year-to-date figures amounting to an impressive 60 percent (1,825 new cars).

The best sold AMG model was the C 63 AMG, with over 1,000 vehicles from the W204 family having been registered in what is pretty much their final production year. We suspect the main reason for this might be more about the fabulous M156 engine and the fact that the C 63 is one of the two remaining models sporting this terrific AMG V8.
