Engine on. Everyday off.

The acceleration of independence – this is an art mastered to perfection by every Mercedes-AMG. Be it a full-blooded sports car, performance vehicle or sports model; be it a sedan, station wagon, SUV, coupe or roadster – all of them unite a sporty driving experience with outstanding comfort and impressive efficiency. Whatever model you choose, a Mercedes-AMG is always a bow of deference to the road. At the same time, every situation and every detail reveals the origins of the AMG brand – the race tracks of the world.

Performance, exclusivity, driving pleasure.

Performance, exclusivity, driving pleasure.

AMG – these three letters stand worldwide for supreme automotive performance, exclusivity, efficiency and highly dynamic driving pleasure. In 2017, the company founded by Hans Werner Aufrecht and Erhard Melcher is celebrating its 50th anniversary. In the course of this half-century, Mercedes-AMG has recorded numerous successes in motor sport and through the development of unique road-going vehicles, thereby repeatedly underlining its position as a highly successful sports car and performance brand – and today this is truer than ever.

Supremacy takes technical genius. And visionary thinking.

It was with the conviction they could win that Hans-Werner Aufrecht and Erhard Melcher laid the foundations of AMG in 1967. Together, they optimized engine power and dedicated themselves to customer sport. In 1971, won their class at the legendary 24-hour race of Spa with the AMG 300 SEL 6.8. This made the letters A, M and G famous around the world. A – the visionary Aufrecht, who constantly drove the company forward; M – the technical genius Melcher, who found solutions for even the most complex challenges; and G – Großaspach, the birthplace of Hans-Werner Aufrecht.
