The dreams of performance enthusiasts. Everything we do at Mercedes-AMG revolves around this. Our aspiration is to make these dreams come true. Our ideal is to exceed them. We are always prepared to go one step further to achieve this.

  • Character

    Away from technology, there is something else that makes an AMG – character.

    Away from technology, there is something else that makes an AMG – character.

    Top performance does not happen by chance. It is achieved where the art of engineering meets a truly special attitude: the AMG spirit. We believe that you have to keep on challenging limits in order to achieve new goals. We accept nothing as a given. Because limits are imposed by people, and it is also people who can overcome them. This character enables us to achieve automotive performance for the race track – and for the road. We call it "Driving Performance".

    What makes an AMG an AMG.

    Our aspiration to keep on challenging limits and keep on achieving new goals is already visible in our overall development approach:

    our work begins as soon as planning for a new Mercedes-Benz model's architecture begins. With this we create the basis for the highest aspirations. Unique in the market for performance vehicles. Every Mercedes-AMG is developed and designed entirely in Affalterbach. The perfect mutual harmonisation of all the components and their interaction results in a vehicle that can live on the race track as well as providing motoring enjoyment on the road.

    The image shows various vehicle components in a virtual technology space.

    Its superior technologies allow an intense driving experience that fits in with the target group's character. Over 800 of our 1500 staff work in the development department alone. It is structured around the very core expertise that makes our outstanding performance possible. We thus develop vehicles with truly special DNA based on this strong expertise. The AMG DNA.

  • Drive

    The image shows a close-up of a 2-litre 4-cylinder AMG performance engine.

    "Power is just the beginning. The art lies in getting it onto the road."

    Christian Enderle, Head of Development Engine and Powertrain

    The heart of the AMG drive system is the engine. But getting the engine's power onto the road involves the precise interaction of the clutch, transmission, drive shaft and differential – the entire powertrain. The driver of a Mercedes-AMG physically experiences the acceleration, which is direct, powerful and impressive. This is thanks to the unique AMG performance drive systems. They stand for dynamic response and high agility – combined with top performance and maximum efficiency.

  • Dynamic handling

    You can drive on roads. Or perform on them.

    The image illustrates the dynamic handling of the Mercedes-AMG performance vehicles.

    You can drive on roads. Or perform on them.

    Roads usually get people from A to B. For performance enthusiasts, however, roads mean a lot more than that. They see every bend as an invitation.

    They drive pro-actively and attentively. They love to plant their vehicle's power onto the tarmac and at the same time control it precisely. For them, dynamic handling is an expression of their personality.

    Unleashed passion, controlled power: this is the principle on which a Mercedes-AMG transforms power into dynamic handling. All the chassis and suspension systems are perfectly tuned to each other.

    The image shows the interior of a Mercedes-AMG CLA Shooting Brake.

    Here innovative AMG technology strikes the ideal balance between dynamism and control – cases in point being the in-house-developed AMG Performance 4MATIC and 4MATIC+ all-wheel-drive systems, the intelligent AMG RIDE CONTROL sports suspension, the variable speed-sensitive sports steering, the AMG high-performance braking system and the optimised aerodynamics.

    This wide array of AMG technologies has one aim: the feeling that we are in control of every bend – and not vice versa.

    "Your diaphragm becomes your eardrum. You hear it with your whole body."

    Ralph Illenberger, Head of Sound Development

    Can you hear adrenaline? The answer is a resounding "yes!" Anybody who drives a Mercedes-AMG is anything but quiet. It becomes unmistakably clear the second the engine fires. The powerfully sonorous rumble of the exhaust system is one of the distinctive trademarks of every Mercedes-AMG – and each model also makes its very own, unmistakable sound statement.

    Tuned to the selectable drive modes with subtle nuances, the whole sound experience develops as the car is driven. There is just the right sound for every driving situation. A unique symphony for performance enthusiasts.

  • Design

    Form Follows Speed.

    Form Follows Speed.

    Anybody meeting a Mercedes-AMG on the road sees design in
    motion. Anybody driving a AMG makes an aesthetic
    statement.

    Design is the perfect symbiosis of form and function – the dominant and distinctive design idiom ensures that every Mercedes-AMG is an uncompromising acknowledgement of performance at first glance. Characteristic radiator grilles and large air intakes lend Mercedes-AMG vehicles their characteristic faces. Striking side sill panels, rear aerofoils and up to four exhaust tailpipes make the motorsport DNA visible.

The image shows an engine with the signature.

In contrast to a mass production process, Mercedes-AMG in-line four-cylinder, V8 and V12 engines are traditionally built by hand in accordance with the "One Man, One Engine" philosophy. A single technician assembles the engine and in the process is responsible for all the steps, from the installation of the crankshaft in the engine block and assembly of the camshafts to the wiring and the filling with engine oil – visibly testified by the technician's signature on the AMG engine badge.
