    Driving Performance since 1967.

    A as in Aufrecht, M as in Melcher and G as in Gross-Aspach.

    AMG – the names behind these three letters are at the starting point of the lightning development from a two-man operation into the global Mercedes-AMG Performance brand.

  • Philosophy

    The world of Mercedes-AMG.

    Mercedes-AMG: Philosophy

    The world of Mercedes-AMG.

    Out of passion for motor sports.

    "Driving Performance" describes the two core elements of Mercedes-AMG: first, power delivery, handling and sound – that is, the elements that make up the unique AMG motoring experience; and secondly, the claim to be the innovator in the high-performance segment.

    From careful attention to detail to an eye for the big picture.

    Mercedes-AMG, the performance brand from Mercedes-Benz, combines sporty dynamism with premium refinement details with the benefits of a series-production vehicle from Mercedes-Benz. A hand-crafted character and engineering art are in the DNA – and have been for over four decades.

  • Engineering

    Hundreds of thousand development days. Millions of test kms.

    Mercedes-AMG: Engineering

    Hundreds of thousand development days. Millions of test kms.

    At AMG development goes deeper than any numbers can express.

    An AMG is not simply a Mercedes with more horsepower – it is a completely independent vehicle in its own right. In order to achieve this objective, AMG engineers are already present in the concept stage when the Mercedes-Benz development team begins to create a new model. This is essential to ensure that AMG high performance technology can be integrated in the vehicle and harmonised with its performance profile.

    500 arguments in favour of a Mercedes-AMG.

    Engineers start off by developing a basic vehicle set-up and then take care of the details in the subsequent stage: first of all chassis and axles, braking and damping systems, secondly the entire drivetrain including transmission and engine – and thirdly interventions in the bodyshell, such as increasing body rigidity.

    Mercedes-AMG develops the future.

    The result is a high-performance vehicle with over 500 AMG-specific parts. After exhaustive testing on test benches and on racetracks and roads across all climate zones it behaves exactly as defined at the outset. And with the SLS AMG Coupé Electric Drive Mercedes-Benz impressively demonstrates key technologies of the future: the most powerful electrically-powered vehicle in the world.

  • Design

    Form follows performance.

    Mercedes-AMG: Design

    Form follows performance.

    You can always recognise an AMG by its face.

    The staff in the Affalterbach design department create the individual character of the AMG – a new interpretation for every single car. Seen from the outside, the sporty proportions, sharp visual features – twin louvre and A-wing – and technology details that distinguish an AMG from a series-production Mercedes-Benz. Even when stationary our vehicles are explicit about their true purpose: Driving Performance. 

    Design and high-performance challenge.

    In particular, the technology of the AMG Performance vehicles differs fundamentally from that of all other cars. This represents a great challenge for the staff of the AMG Design department: they have to integrate high-performance technology in the vehicles and at the same time create a muscular exterior. In order to succeed in the endeavour to translate complex technical demands into an autonomous design idiom and thus create authentic dream cars, at AMG the basic principle is paramount: Form follows performance.

  • One Man - One Engine

    The AMG difference: "One Man – One Engine".

    The AMG difference: "One Man – One Engine".

    The AMG Performance engines Manufaktur.

    The heart of each AMG is, of course, the engine. In order for the power units to release adrenaline in great quantities and cope with maximum demands for an extended automobile life, every single engine is made individually in the Manufaktur. Here each engine is assembled in hand-crafted perfection by a single technician in line with the philosophy "One Man – One Engine" – and this is documented by the technician's signature on the AMG engine plate.

    The most fuel-efficient V8 petrol engine in the world comes from Affalterbach.

    In the AMG, top level performance, superior torque and exceptional efficiency are all inseparably interwoven. The AMG 5.5-litre V8 biturbo engine and the AMG 5.5-litre V8 naturally-aspirated engine, the latter featuring AMG Cylinder Management, are "best in class" in terms of fuel consumption, output and torque.
