An iconic sports car brand, AMG was founded in 1967 by two former Mercedes-Benz engineers. The company would go by their surnames and their hometown – “Aufrecht Melcher Großaspach.”
Initially, AMG tuned and built engines for racing – but soon got into the business of tuning road cars. By the 1980s, AMG had become well-known for its work for Mercedes-Benz, a brand of the Mercedes-Benz Group, has been involved in Formula One as both team owner and engine manufacturer... There's more... road cars.
One of its most famous of the time is the AMG Hammer – based on the Mercedes E-Class – which became a cult hit thanks in part to its 360hp, 5.6-litre V8 engine.
Today AMG adds performance and finish to the AMG range of Mercedes cars.
