The Significance of the AMG Badge for Mercedes-Benz

February 17th, 2016 by


Mercedes-Benz cars were always tuned and raced by both professionals as well as amateurs since the day they were first built. Among the best tuners in the business around the late 60’s were Mercedes-Benz engineers Hans Werner Aufrecht and Erhard Melcher, of Großaspach, they formed the AMG badge taking the first letters of their names and their home town. To give you an idea of what AMG really signifies, an entry level AMG car like the A-Class AMG, called the A45 can out sprint a Porsche 911. Yes, you read that right.

There are two variants of AMG cars in the market right now. First standard Mercedes-Benz cars are given the AMG treatment and made into extreme performance machines and second, AMG build, design and make their own line of super cars. Pure AMG cars are among the best super cars in the world.

So should you buy one? Depends on how much of a car freak you are. If you are the type that drives to work daily and occasionally take long trips, it makes no sense to get one of these monsters. If you however, have fuel pumping through your veins, and your favorite thing in life is to put a car through a corner, then yes, definitely yes!
