You will get pure luxury in every Mercedes-Benz. Every year, every make, and every model is guaranteed to be a beautiful all around car. But one thing that puts Mercedes-Benz above their competitors and arguably what they are known for is what they call AMG. Today we are going to discuss everything AMG.
AMG stands for Aufrecht Melcher Brobaspach. The first two words refer to the founders’ last names and Brobaspach is a city in Germany. The meaning is so much more. AMG is any Mercedes-Benz with a specific trim and tuning, leading to finer handling, more power, and a sportier look. AMG is basically the best of the best that Mercedes-Benz has to offer inside and out.
Mercedes-Benz makes six different AMG engines. They are called:
- Handcrafted 6.0L V12 Biturbo Engine (M279)
- Can be found in the Mercedes-Benz AMG S 65 sedan.
- AMG Enhanced 3.0L V6 Biturbo (M276)
- Can be found in the Mercedes-Benz AMG GLE 43 coup and the GLC 43 4Matic.

AMG carries the brand’s “One Man, One Engine” philosophy which refers to how one person has their sole attention on one engine until completed. Of course this is not the case with mass production but that is the ideology that AMG was built around.
Mercedes-Benz has created an entire community within their brand with AMG and doing so has brought the manufacturer nothing but more prestige and success. If you want the high-end Mercedes-Benz, if you want the best of the best, if you want to be a part of something bigger get yourself an AMG!
