What is Mercedes-Benz AMG®?

March 28th, 2016 by

Going back nearly fifty years, the AMG® distinction denotes cutting-edge mechanical design and performance within the new Mercedes-Benz lineup. Furnished with handcrafted engines, the ever-expanding AMG® selection includes some of the most desirable vehicles on the market. Over the years, the goal behind the origin of AMG® remains, and the “One Man, One Engine” philosophy continues to inspire the production of newer, more powerful vehicles.

A Brief Introduction to AMG®

In 1967, auto engineers Hans-Werner Aufrecht and Erhard Melcher began perfecting the concept of AMG® from a mill in Burgstall, Germany. With the production of the 300 SEL 6.8 AMG®, and its first-in-class performance in the 24 Hours of Spa, AMG® quickly gained notoriety. In 1993, Mercedes-Benz and AMG® began the two-year process of crafting the C 36 AMG®, which became the first AMG® model to be advertised in the United States.

Since its inception and initial success, the AMG® brand has continued to flourish worldwide, launching revolutionary and inimitable engines and vehicles. Today, the Mercedes-Benz AMG® lineup is instantly recognized by its sharp, aggressive body styling, wide stance, twin power domes, and resonating growl. Mechanically, the AMG® sedans, coupes, and SUVs are the picture of excellence, featuring engines crafted by AMG® Master Engine Builders, racing-derived transmissions, and Mercedes-Benz 4MATIC® All-Wheel Drive.
