Mercedes-Benz AMG

In 1967, two automotive engineers with a passion for motorsports began fine-tuning engines for Mercedes-Benz race cars 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.

From the beginning, the "One Man, One Engine" philosophy has guided AMG's approach to manufacturing. Even now, every AMG engine is hand built from start to finish by one of about 50 AMG Master Engine Builders in a special facility.

As the final step in the assembly process, the engine-maker affixes a plaque engraved with his signature to the engine cover. It's an enduring reminder that even the heart of a Mercedes-AMG has a soul.

While the hand-built engines usually steal the spotlight, the AMG approach to raising heart rates is anything but one-dimensional. It's about using all the weapons in the engineering arsenal to create a high-performance driving experience that's simply without equal.

Simply put, power is all in the delivery. So we've developed a new all-wheel drive system to transfer as much handcrafted muscle to the asphalt as possible. Based on legendary Mercedes-Benz 4MATIC technology, AMG Performance 4MATIC 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.

Under the guidance of professional instructors, you'll push your driving abilities and a selection of Mercedes-AMG models to the limit on some of America's most legendary racetracks. It's a high-speed, high-adrenaline driving adventure like no other. And it's engineered specifically to prove what you -- and AMG -- are made of.

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. So while every AMG bears the Three-Pointed Star -- shorthand for the legendary craftsmanship and quality of Mercedes-Benz -- it's designed with the presence and the performance to set it apart.

In a Mercedes-AMG, impeccable craftsmanship isn't confined to the engine compartment. Every element is conceived and created to outperform in every arena, including its ability to catch the eye of a discerning driver. From the finishing of the cabin appointments to the calibration of the running gear, an AMG automobile represents the seamless intersection of high-tech engineering and handcrafted excellence.
