Mercedes-AMG is the performance and sports car brand of Mercedes-Benz Cars. Since 2005 Mercedes-AMG GmbH has been a wholly-owned subsidiary of Mercedes-Benz Group AG.
Founded in 1967 by Hans-Werner Aufrecht and Erhard Melcher, the company began its cooperation with Mercedes-Benz in 1990.
The location in Affalterbach near Stuttgart houses the development and design of AMG vehicles, as well as the engine production facility, and management, administration and sales.
Affalterbach is the production location for the V8 engines, and has been the production site of the new 4-cylinder performance engines since spring 2019. Mannheim is a further engine production plant (V12 engine).At these locations the engines are assembled according to the philosophy of “One Man, One Engine”, with one fitter putting together each engine by hand.
The AMG vehicles are produced as part of series production in the international Mercedes-Benz plants.
“Driving Performance” is the motto of the AMG brand, and it is expressed in every vehicle’s perceptible, innovative excellence.
Both the SLS AMG and the Mercedes-AMG GT family as two-door variants and the AMG GT 4-door Coupé mark milestones in the company's history: they were developed entirely in-house.
In 2019, Mercedes-AMG delivered more than 132,136 vehicles.
Special products and challenges, special passion and team culture. At Mercedes-AMG, you quickly realize why we are one of the most exciting employers you can imagine. Our team spirit and the drive of each individual make working for us just as fascinating as what we produce.
No "should have, would, could". We do it. And we keep going. Become even more digital, flexible, sustainable, customer-oriented. Surprise others and ourselves. Because for our further development, what is special today can be something completely different tomorrow.
