AMG® Passion for Performance
How the Race is Won.
In 1967, two automotive engineers with a passion for motorsports began fine-tuning engines for Mercedes-Benz racecars in an old mill. Today, as the performance division of Mercedes-Benz, AMG creates some of the most sought-after vehicles in the world. They’re the product of skilled craftsmen, designers and engineers who live to test the limits, and one shared conviction: on the road to driving performance, short cuts never win the race.
Some Things Can’t Be Mass Produced.
From the beginning, the “One Man, One Engine” philosophy has guided AMG’s approach to manufacturing. Even now, every AMG engine is hand built from start to finish by one of about 50 AMG Master Engine Builders in a special facility.
As the final step in the assembly process, the engine-maker affixes a plaque engraved with his signature to the engine cover. It’s an enduring reminder that even the heart of a Mercedes-AMG has a soul.
A Team Effort.
While the hand-built engines usually steal the spotlight, the AMG approach to raising heart rates is anything but one-dimensional. It’s about using all the weapons in the engineering arsenal to create a high-performance driving experience that’s simply without equal.
