What Does “AMG®” Stand For?

The letters A, M, and G are initials of the founding engineers who assembled AMG® 50 years ago. Aufrecht, Melcher, and Großβaspach built racing engines for Mercedes-Benz under contract before becoming an official part of the legendary automaker itself. 

What was once a small three-man operation building racing engines for the Mercedes-Benz lineup led to the birth of the Mercedes-Benz AMG® performance division, and the subsequent creation of one of the most legendary performance brands in history. Any model that bears the AMG® title is sure to offer world-class performance, technology, and design.
