Driving Performance

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 are 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.

    10s World Champion

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.



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. But it’s just one of many high-performance weapons in our engineering arsenal.



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.
