The AMC AMX is a two-seat GT-style sports car that was produced by American Motors Corporation for the 1968 through 1970 model years. The AMX was also classified as a muscle car, but "unique among other American cars at the time due its short wheelbase". The AMX was also the only American-built steel-bodied two-seater of its time, the first since the 1955-1957 Ford Thunderbird. To a degree, the AMX was a competitor with America's only other two-seater of the era, the Chevrolet Corvette for substantially less money. With a one-inch (2.5 cm) shorter wheelbase than Chevrolet's two-seater, the AMX was often seen by the press as a "Corvette competitor"

  • The AMC AMX is a two-seat GT-style sports car that was produced by American Motors Corporation for the 1968 through 1970 model years. The AMX was also classified as a muscle car, but "unique among other American cars at the time due its short wheelbase". The AMX was also the only American-built steel-bodied two-seater of its time, the first since the 1955-1957 Ford Thunderbird. To a degree, the AMX was a competitor with America's only other two-seater of the era, the Chevrolet Corvette for substantially less money. With a one-inch (2.5 cm) shorter wheelbase than Chevrolet's two-seater, the AMX was often seen by the press as a "Corvette competitor" Fitted with the optional high-compression medium block 390 cu in (6.4 L) AMC V8 engine, the AMX offered top-notch performance at an affordable price. In spite of this value and enthusiastic initial reception by automotive media and enthusiasts, sales never thrived. However, the automaker's larger objectives to refocus AMC's image on performance and to bring younger customers into its dealer showrooms was achieved. After three model years, the two-seat version was discontinued, and the AMX's now signature badging was transferred to a high-performance version of its four-seat sibling, the Javelin, from 1971-1974. American Motors capitalized the respected reputation of the original AMXs by reviving the model designation for performance-equipped coupe versions of the compact Hornet in 1977, Concord in 1978, and the subcompact Spirit in 1979 and 1980.

  • Der AMC AMX ist ein PKW, der zwischen Anfang 1968 und Ende 1970 von der American Motors Corporation (AMC) hergestellt wurde. Der AMX war eine kürzere, zweisitzige Version des Pony Cars AMC Javelin. Der Wagen hatte eine leistungsfähige Mechanik und einen starken Motor in der Gran Turismo (GT)-Tradition, aber einen erschwinglichen Preis. (de)
  • Lo stile della AMX richiamava le Gran Turismo, ma le caratteristiche erano da vettura sport. La AMX era classificata comunque come muscle car e fu all'epoca l'unica vettura statunitense con corpo vettura in acciaio che venne prodotta dopo la prima serie della Ford Thunderbird (quest'ultima fu infatti commercializzata dal 1955 al 1957). La AMX era in diretta concorrenza con un solo modello, la Chevrolet Corvette anche se, rispetto a quest'ultima, era in vendita ad un prezzo inferiore. Questa concorrenza diretta era anche riconosciuta dalla stampa. Il modello è stato assemblato a Kenosha, nel Wisconsin, ed a Melbourne. I modelli venduti in Australia erano denominati "Rambler AMX". Dal 1968 al 1969 furono disponibili tre motori V8 che avevano una cilindrata di 4,8 L, 5,6 L e 6,4 L. I tre propulsori erogavano una potenza, rispettivamente, di 225 CV, 280 CV e 315 CV ed erano dotati di un carburatore a quadruplo corpo. Nel 1969 fu introdotta una versione di quest'ultimo motore che era dotata di due carburatori a quadruplo corpo e che erogava 420 CV. Nel 1970 il motore da 6,4 L fu ulteriormente potenziato a 325 CV nonostante l'alimentazione fosse tornata ad essere forniat da un singolo carburatore quadruplo corpo. L'altro motore disponibile nel 1970 era invece un V8 da 5,9 L e 285 CV. Grazie a queste motorizzazioni, la AMX forniva ottime prestazioni ad un prezzo abbordabile. Il motore era montato anteriormente, mentre la trazione era posteriore. I cambi disponibili erano due, vale a dire una trasmissione manuale a quattro rapporti ed un cambio automatico a tre rapporti. L'unica carrozzeria disponibile era coupé due porte. Nonostante le sue caratteristiche ed l'ottima accoglienza iniziale, le vendite non decollarono mai. Dopo solo tre anni di produzione, il modello venne pertanto tolto di produzione ed il nome AMX fu trasferito alla versione ad alte prestazioni della Javelin (che fu in commercio dal 1971 al 1974). Negli anni seguenti, il nome AMX fu utilizzato sulle versioni coupé ad alte prestazioni di altri modelli: nel 1977 sulla Hornet, nel 1978 sulla Concord e dal 1979 al 1980 sulla Spirit in 1979 and 1980.
