AMG or not?

Can anyone pls shed light on this.

How do you tell an AMG 500 series from an ordinary Benz? There are 3 here for sale in Aussie.

2 are touted as an AMG hybrid. More specifically. They are 500SEC's with a 560 5.6L engine fitted. However. 1 is badged a 560SEC?

I ran the VIN's through the Russian site & got squat! What I did get however was the transmission codes for the 500's was 722.311 whilst for the 560 it was 722.350. Does this mean anything

Really would appreciate the facts

P.S. One of the 500SEC badged owners wrote back:

It has AMG tailshaft, wheels, exhaust, door trim "leopard on merc symbol" with Hybrid logo and on top of that we have had it to a merc mechanic (Mr Benz) and they have confirmed the "hybrid" we have is an AMG.. The person we bought it off, bought it off his boss which had imported it as an AMG merc. It is set up to go fast and handle well, it kicks back easily at 180 and will keep pulling (not that we advise you do that...) If you hold foot flat top gear isnt reached until 200 (but as I put in advert, rear suspension does need redoing). As soon as you start it you will understand, the note is unlike any standard merc around. Husband has had a stroke which is why we are selling it... Cheers
