Celebrating 50 Years of AMG Passion.

50 Years of AMG Passion

AMG – three letters which stand for supreme automotive performance, exclusivity, efficiency and driving pleasure. In 2017, we are celebrating 50 Years of AMG - this means half a century of success in motorsport and generations of fascinating AMG vehicles.


Two men with a passion for motorsport and engineering founded AMG. Hans Werner Aufrecht and Erhard Melcher saw an opportunity on every wide-open road, an invitation in every curve, an affirmation in every victory: for more performance and more power. Today, this passion is infused into the very DNA of every Mercedes-AMG.


Mercedes-AMG drivers are anything but quiet characters. That is quite obvious as soon as the engine starts up. The full and powerful rumble of the exhaust system is a defining signature feature of every Mercedes-AMG, with each model making its very own distinct sound statements. A unique symphony for performance enthusiasts.


A Mercedes-AMG on the road is design in motion. To drive a Mercedes-AMG is to make an aesthetic statement. The perfect symbiosis of form and function: the bold and distinctive design idiom ensures that every Mercedes-AMG is immediately recognisable as an uncompromising embodiment of performance.


The heart of an AMG lurks beneath the skin. The engine forms the core of the AMG drive system. But it takes the precise interplay between clutch, transmission, drive shaft and differential – the entire drivetrain – to apply the engine’s power to the road. With a Mercedes-AMG, acceleration is a tangible physical experience.
