Picture Of The Day. Mercedes AMG
In 1967, two automotive engineers with a passion for motorsports began fine-tuning engines for Mercedes-Benz race cars 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 signature to the engine cover. It’s an enduring reminder that even the heart of a Mercedes-AMG has a soul.
