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.
Over 50 years ago, a unique company arose as a result of an overwhelming passion for motorsports.
A as in Aufrecht, M as in Melcher and G as in Großaspach: the names behind these three letters were the starting point for the rapid development from a two-man operation to a global brand.
The professionalism of Mercedes-AMG is defined by its pursuit of high performance, precision and efficiency. Every Mercedes-AMG performance car promises to provide outstanding performance, exciting driving pleasure and ultimate quality down to the finest detail. A promise bolstered by the standards set for maximum ouput and torque, fuel consumption and emissions.
