40 Years of AMG

Mercedes’ factory tuner, AMG celebrates 40 years of existence. The company was founded in an old mill in Burgstall (near Affalterbach) by Hans Werner Aufrecht (A) and his partner Erhard Melcher (M); the third letter in the company name (G) came from Aufrecht’s birthplace, Großaspach.

The company has grown into a supplier of exclusive high-performance cars with some 750 employees, an extensive model range comprising 18 different AMG cars, customers across the world and a brand name which has gained a high level of recognition. The turnkey in AMG’s history was 1990 when they signed the agreement with Daimler-Benz AG, with Mercedes-Benz C 36 AMG being the first jointly developed vehicle to result from the cooperation agreement, in 1993.
