Shopping for a vehicle that’s equal parts luxury and high-powered performance? You may find what you’re looking for in the Mercedes-AMG® lineup. Mercedes-AMG® is a brand of Mercedes-Benz and builds race-inspired versions of Mercedes-Benz vehicles like the C-Class and GLE with thousands of specialized AMG® parts. Whether you’re a sports car or luxury enthusiast, AMG® vehicles won’t disappoint.
What is the Meaning of “AMG®”?
A-M-G stands for Aufrecht, Melcher, and Großβaspach, a.k.a. the engineers who founded AMG® about 50 years ago. All shared a similar vision — high-performance racing engines designed for the luxurious Mercedes-Benz lineup. Thus, the AMG® performance division was born. Models stamped with AMG® badging are designed to outperform but don’t skimp on the luxuries that make non-AMG® Mercedes-Benz vehicles great.
