Ah, AMG. I don't recommend going for the AMG option on ordinary Mercedes-Benz because what it means is bigger wheels with lower profile tyres so a greater risk of tyre and wheel damage, shorter tyre life and an uncomfortable ride for a benefit that can only be appreciated on a race track. However, if you mean a real AMG, then the one to go for is the naturally aspirited 6.2 litre V8, though it is called the AMG63, as are 5.5-litre twin turbos and 4.0-litre twin turbos.
