There is no denying that Mercedes-Benz vehicles are some of the finest luxury models on the market. And while even their most basic cars are exceptional, they have another type of model that is truly remarkable, and it has three letters in its name: AMG®. If you’re wondering what they stand for and why it matters, read on.  

A Brief History of Mercedes-Benz AMG® 

In the 1960s, two engineers named Hans Werner Aufrecht and Erhard Melcher were working on high-performance engines for racing cars for the Daimler-Benz company. Despite the termination of motorsport activities, they continued their work at Aufrecht’s home in Grossaspach.

In 1967, they officially started Aufrecht Melcher Grossaspach (AMG®), and it didn’t take long for racing teams to be drawn to their brilliant engines. It also wasn’t long before Mercedes-Benz realized that they could vastly improve their non-race cars with AMG® engines.  

Mercedes-Benz AMG® Features 

All Mercedes-Benz AMG® vehicles have unique qualities, including: 

  • Handcrafted engines built to produce substantially higher amounts of horsepower and torque 
  • Enhanced exteriors that create a more aerodynamic body shape 
  • Improved suspension systems that offers a smoother ride 
  • More stylish interiors that utilize carbon accents and Alcantara leather
