AMG Performance Center
PASSION NEVER CUTS CORNERS.
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.
With each successive generation, AMG engines produce more muscle more efficiently, but it’s the job of AMG transmissions to refine that power and deliver it with both speed and precision. Advanced gearboxes, up to four selectable driving modes, and racing-derived features including dual- or multi-clutch technology are more than up to the task.
FORCE OF FOUR
Based on legendary Mercedes-Benz 4MATIC technology, the AMG Performance 4MATIC all-wheel drive system is not only engineered to preserve the signature AMG feel while making the best use of available torque – it´s also up to 35% lighter than comparable systems. Which means it’s a force to be reckoned with.
THE SHAPE OF PERFORMANCE
Even at first glance, you can tell there’s something different about a Mercedes-AMG. The sharpened profile. The wider wheel arches. The road-hugging lower bodywork. At the AMG Design Center in Affalterbach, the aggressive character of Mercedes-AMG takes shape based on the advanced, high-performance technology beneath its skin.
