For over 45 years three letters have signified the ultimate in high performance Mercedes-Benz – AMG.
Founded by Hans-Werner Aufrecht and Erhard Melcher in 1967, AMG dedicated its operation to developing engines and components for Mercedes-Benz enthusiasts. The company leapt to prominence after its expert workforce prepared a 6.3-litre Mercedes-Benz 300 SEL for the 1971 Spa 24-hour race, the super saloon storming to a shock class win and second overall.
Over the prevailing years highlights of AMG’s rich heritage include Mercedes-Benz choosing the company to be its official partner for the German Touring Car Championship (DTM) and, using what had been learnt on the track, working with the manufacturer to build the first AMG road model in 1990 – the C 36 AMG.
Now, as the official performance arm of Mercedes-Benz, the company has built on the very first C-Class AMG to develop an extensive range of superbly engineered Mercedes-Benz that are recognised as some of the finest high-performance vehicles in the world.
Even better, for those enthusiasts who are seeking the ultimate fusion of race-bred performance and day-to-day driveability, the range of power-packed AMG variants continues to grow at a pace and encompasses models in the C-Class, E-Class, CLS-Class, CL-Class, SLK-Class, SL-Class and ML-Class ranges. Topping the AMG offering is the sensational SLS AMG ‘Gullwing’ and SLS AMG Roadster super sports cars, while models such as the V8-powered C 63 AMG, the 421hp SLK 55 AMG Roadster and both Saloon and Estate formats of the 6.3-litre E-Class AMG are particularly popular.
And while the AMG range has prospered, so has the dedication of our Retailers to the much revered performance brand.
