Passion never cuts corners.
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.
A team effort.
Whether it's the hand-built craftsmanship of the "one man - one engine" philosophy or the ever-advancing technological leadership of the latest biturbos, an AMG engine is developed not just to perform, but to outperform.
With each successive generation, AMG engines produce more muscle more efficiently, but it's the job of amg transmissions to refine that power and deliver it with both speed and precision. Advanced gearboxes, up to four selectable driving modes, and racing-derived features including dual- or multi-clutch technology are more than up to the task.
In a Mercedes-AMG, everything from weight distribution and wheel design to load transfer and frame rigidity has been engineered for responsiveness. AMG ride control sport suspension analyzes every driving situation and adapts the damping accordingly. Confident control is assured by the AMG® high-performance braking system. And lightweight design solutions place a strong emphasis on innovative uses of materials like aluminum and carbon-fiber-reinforced plastic for optimum tracking as well as efficiency.
Can adrenalin actually be heard? Anyone who drives a mercedes amg answers that question loud and clear from the moment the engine is fired up. The powerfully sonorous growl of the exhaust is one of the unmistakable signatures of every amg vehicle — each model has its own individual accent. And thanks to the nuances of the different drive modes, every driving situation is a unique symphony that´s both created by and cherished by performance enthusiasts.
AMG performance 4matic all-wheel drive.
The force of four. Based on legendary mercedes-benz 4matic technology, the amg performance 4matic all-wheel drive system is not only engineered to preserve the signature amg feel while making the best use of available torque - it´s also up to 35% lighter than comparable systems. Which means it's a force to be reckoned with.
The shape of performance.
Even at first glance, you can tell there's something different about a Mercedes-AMG. The sharpened profile. The wider wheel arches. The road-hugging lower bodywork. At the amg design center in affalterbach, the aggressive character of Mercedes-AMG takes shape based on the advanced, high-performance technology beneath its skin.
Crafting a dream.
The amg definition of a complete work of art means developing all performance-relevant components for our vehicles by ourselves. More than 700 of our employees work in the development department, all of whom devote themselves to creating innovations again and again. For example, in accordance with our one man — one engine philosophy, every single engine in a mercedes amg 45, 63 or 65 model is handcrafted by its own highly trained master engine builder, and in accordance with the strictest quality standards. It´s just one way our engineers express their dedication, passion and character.
