What is a Mercedes AMG?

Post Date: 24th August 2016


Mercedes AMG is a sub-division of Mercedes-Benz, which focuses on high performance, and produces faster, sportier models than the main brand.

The engineering, manufacturing and customisation of the Mercedes AMG vehicles is done independently by the sub-brand, and these models tend to be more expensive than their original counterparts.

The Mercedes AMG division was originally formed by Hans Werner Aufrecht and Erhard Melcher, two es-Mercedes engineers, in 1967. The name AMG is formed from the initials of their surnames plus the place Aufrecht was born.

Since 2007, Mercedes has wholly owned the AMG division.

What AMG model should I go for?

If it’s your first time venturing into the world of sports cars, the Mercedes AMG A 45 4Matic is a great choice. It’s the fastest A-CLass on sale by a considerable amount, and can comfortably go from 0-60mph in just 4 seconds.

If you like the idea of having a Mercedes AMG, but you’re after something a bit bigger and more versatile, consider the Mercedes AMG E 63.

Who are AMG models suitable for?

Mercedes AMG models are perfect for someone who appreciates a well built car, that can reach high speeds in a short amount of time.

However, due to their sporty nature, these cars do tend to be less economical than standard Mercedes models, and have higher running costs. Therefore, if you’re thinking of buying one, it’s essential that you can afford to spend a bit of money to get from place to place.

In a nutshell, if you’ve got deep pockets and love to go fast, a Mercedes AMG could be the perfect car for you.
