One man. One engine.
Over 45 years ago, an overwhelming passion for motorsports translated into the creation of a unique company.
A as in Aufrecht, M as in Melcher and G as in Großaspach – the names behind these three letters are the starting point of the rapid development from a two-man operation to a global brand. The story starts in the 1960s: The two engineers Hans Werner Aufrecht and Erhard Melcher were working on the 300 SE racing engine in the Daimler-Benz Development department – until the company discontinued all motorsports activities.
The AMG Distinction
Every Mercedes-AMG engine is assembled by hand according to the "one man, one engine" philosophy.
One man, one engine – highly qualified manual assembly in Affalterbach.
In contrast to large-series production, every Mercedes-AMG engine is traditionally assembled by hand according to the "one man, one engine" philosophy. A single AMG technician assembles the complete engine in the AMG engine shop in Affalterbach, and is therefore responsible for every-thing from the installation of the crankshaft in the engine block to the assembly of the camshaft and the cables and oil fill-up – his signature is then put on the engine plate.

Design - The Shape of the Performance
Even at first glance, you can tell there's something different about a Mercedes-AMG. The sharpened profile. The wider wheel arches. The road-hugging lower bodywork. At the AMG Design Center in Affalterbach, the aggressive character of Mercedes-AMG takes shape based on the advanced, high-performance technology beneath its skin.
A Mercedes-Benz stands apart from the pack. A personalized Mercedes or AMG vehicle stands apart from the elite. For those with a passion for the exclusive, AMG offers the ultimate in personalization. Mercedes-AMG offers a variety of customization options for your Mercedes-Benz production vehicle or your Mercedes-Benz AMG to give your vehicle a more individual touch.
We have a hand in everything

Every element is conceived and created to outperform in every arena, including its ability to catch the eye of a discerning driver. From the finishing of the cabin appointments to the calibration of the running gear, an AMG automobile represents the seamless intersection of high-tech engineering and handcrafted excellence.
