AMG® “One Man. One Engine.”
In 1967, two automotive engineers with a passion for motorsports began fine-tuning engines for Mercedes-Benz racecars 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 or her signature to the engine cover. It’s an enduring reminder that even the heart of a Mercedes-AMG® has a soul.
