Mercedes-Benz AMG® Overview

Mercedes-Benz AMG Overview
Precision-crafted performance, impeccable design, and unrivaled luxury. These key elements of the Mercedes-AMG® philosophy are forged into the DNA of every vehicle that leaves the artisan workshops of Affalterbach, Germany. With over 50 years of heritage and powerful conviction, AMG® has been characterized by the courage and passion of its founders Hans Werner Aufrecht and Erhard Melcher.
Hans Werner Aufrecht and Erhard Melcher

Two Men, Three Letters

Hans Werner Aufrecht and Erhard Melcher were engineers in the Development Department at Daimler-Benz, working tirelessly towards sustaining and optimizing the performance of Mercedes-Benz vehicles. Establishing a reputation for success in motorsports, the vision of AMG® was to offer road vehicles modeled after the successful racing cars earning victories across Europe. In 1967, they founded the “Aufrecht Melcher Großaspach Ingenieurbüro, Konstruktion und Versuch zur Entwicklung von Rennmotoren” (“Aufrecht Melcher Großaspach engineering firm, design and testing for the development of racing engines”).

In 1971, the AMG® Mercedes 300 SEL 6.8 was the champion in its class and won second place overall at the 24 Hours of Spa, causing a sensation that spread the AMG® name throughout the world. By 1984, AMG® had become a world-class engine manufacturer thanks to groundbreaking technologies pioneered at the purpose-built workshop in Affalterbach.

Joining the Family

Representing a true milestone in AMG® history, Daimler-Benz AG and AMG® signed a contract agreeing on a partnership. A tremendous boost in demand and customer acceptance followed, now that AMG® products could be sold and maintained through Mercedes-Benz’ worldwide network of company-owned sales and service outlets and dealerships.

Today, Mercedes-AMG® GmbH currently employs a workforce of more than 1500 at its plant in Affalterbach. Now not only is the Mercedes-AMG® model range larger and more varied than ever before, but it is also designed to cater to the most diverse desires and requirements of the customer.

One Man One Engine Mercedes-AMG

One-Man, One-Engine Philosophy

From the start, AMG® has embraced a single philosophy: One Man – One Engine. A single master mechanic individually handcrafts every AMG® engine. From a 4-cylinder through a V6 and V8 to a V12. They all stand for dynamic response and high agility, combined with superlative performance and unparalleled efficiency. Since every AMG® is also a Mercedes-Benz, acoustic comfort and ride quality – as well as endurance and long-term performance – must always meet the very highest standards.

Dynamic Handling and Symphonic Sound

The powerful and robust rumble of the exhaust system is a defining feature of every Mercedes-AMG®, with every model making its very own distinct sound statements. Each driving situation is thus supported by the corresponding sound character. Controlling the power, unleashing the passion: a Mercedes-AMG® applies this principle to transform power into driving dynamics. They instill that special feeling that we are in control of every twist and turn, and not vice versa.
