What is AMG®?

What began as the performance division Mercedes-Benz models are now some of the highest quality, street-legal vehicles in the world. Mercedes-Benz AMG® is where excellence comes to a head. Made to maximize aerodynamics and dynamic performance, Mercedes-Benz AMG® models include:

    • Hand-built engines  — no two AMG® engines are the same
    • Highest quality materials
    • Driver-first technologies
    • Top-notch performance

What Does “AMG®” Stand For?

About 50 years ago, three engineers by the names of Aufrecht, Melcher, and Großβaspach developed the AMG® performance division of Mercedes-Benz. Their dream of building powerful race engines for one of the world’s top luxury manufacturers eventually led to the creation of AMG® and the many motorsports-inspired vehicles produced under its badge. Today, AMG® auto heritage is still going strong. From the GLA to the E-Class to the SL-Class, nearly every Mercedes-Benz class offers at least one AMG® configuration.

AMG® models have their own line of powerful engine options:

AMG® Purchase Reward Program

If you purchased a new AMG® auto in the U.S., then you qualify for the Purchase Reward Program, which means you have one year from the date of delivery to register and attend one of several AMG® Driving Academy Programs.

PERFORMANCE Training Program
The Purchase Reward Program provides a one day, complimentary track experience at an AMG® Driving Academy PERFORMANCE Training program.

If you purchased a new Mercedes-Benz AMG® in the last twelve months, then a complimentary seat at any of the PERFORMANCE Training Programs has been reserved for you.

Registration and attendance for a complimentary program must occur within one year after you take ownership of a new Mercedes-Benz AMG® vehicle and is non-transferable.

ADVANCED, PRO, or PRO+ Training Program
If instead of attending a PERFORMANCE Training program, you would rather attend an ADVANCED, PRO, or PRO+ Training Program, then through the Purchase Reward Program you may apply a credit of $1,895 toward an ADVANCED, PRO, or PRO+ Training if prerequisites are met.

Registration and attendance must occur within one year after you take ownership of a new Mercedes-Benz AMG® vehicle and is non-transferable.

At this time, AMG® Purchase Rewards cannot be applied toward the DRIFT Training program. All of the Mercedes-Benz AMG® vehicles used throughout the program are provided by AMG® Driving Academy. Racetracks are subject to change in MBUSA’s sole and absolute discretion. For complete rules and regulations contact Mercedes-Benz of Stockton or visit the AMG® Academy website.
