AMG, 50 Years of Driving Performance

Mercedes-AMG celebrates its 50th anniversary in 2017. AMG was founded by Hans-Werner Aufrecht and Erhard Melcher and AMG started life in a small private garage tuning Mercedes cars for fun and today, AMG has 1,600 people working in its facility in Affalterbach, Germany.

With almost 100 000 units delivered in 2016, AMG heads into this milestone year with record figures under its belt.

To the theme of “50 Years of Driving Performance”, the sports car and performance brand is marking the occasion by extending the AMG GT family of sports cars with the new Mercedes-AMG GT C.

“With the AMG GT C, we are now expanding our portfolio of sports cars to six models plus the AMG GT3 customer sport racing car. In under three years, the second vehicle to be developed by us entirely in-house has grown into a family,” says Tobias Moers, Chairman of the Board of Management of Mercedes-AMG GmbH.
