AMG sells around 30,000 cars annually possibly more.
They are hugely profitable too.
They are also mercedes sporting arm.
I'm never too sure where these sales figures miraculously appear from JET because they're really quite fanciful, but Jaguar couldn't justify the expense of a Formula 1 team and couldn't work out what it did for them. AMG certainly can't either, as it appears as some of us thought that Mercedes are offloading the thing on to AMG - this name change hiding an awful lot more as some of us suspected.
There is certainly a 'why' in there, but it is definitely not what many think.
