AMG® Heritage and Performance


For many years, the Mercedes-Benz nameplate has been synonymous with world-class luxury and performance. At the very top of the performance lineup, though, there’s a group of models with a focus on output and precision that simply sets it apart—and that’s AMG®. There’s an AMG® version of almost every model in the current Mercedes-Benz lineup, the result of a long history of collaboration. Read on to learn more about the history of the AMG® branad as well as how this premier engineering plays out in the currently-available Mercedes-Benz lineup.

The Early Days of AMG®

AMG® is short for Aufrecht, Mechler, and Großasch—or Hans Werner Aufrecht, Ehrnard Melcher, and Aufrecht’s birthplace of Großasch. Aufrecht began his engineering career at Mercedes-Benz, and in 1966 he parted ways to embark on a project to develop world-class sporting performance technologies for both the race track and the road. Aufrecht and Mechler experienced a successful start, and by 1971 they had developed a Total 24 Hours of Spa class champion racer with the 300 SEL AMG®. Throughout the second half of the twentieth century, AMG® would continue to solidify its legacy of being synonymous with world-class performance.

The partnership between Mercedes-Benz and AMG® was consolidated in 1990, when Delmier-Benz AG signed an agreement that allowed Mercedes-Benz to directly maintain and sell AMG® licensed products. That’s why you now find such widespread availability of AMG® models across the Mercedes-Benz roster.

How Do AMG® Models Stand Out?

From the moment you slide into the cockpit of a Mercedes-AMG® vehicle, the difference becomes immediately clear. These vehicles are equipped with premium hand-crafted AMG® engines, finely tuned transmissions, drivetrains, suspensions, and brakes. On top of that, you’ll stand out from the pack thanks to distinctive AMG® badging and exclusive design work only available on these vehicles. In brief, these are vehicles crafted to excite.
