Mercedes Benz Amg
Nowadays, everyone knows that AMG is the most powerful and fast modifications of Mercedes Benz which can be bought in the car showroom. Currently, in the studio, about 750 employees collect 18 models. And all this began as you understood, with only two people. The first two letters in the name AMG — Aufrecht and Melcher, surnames of founders and a letter G — the hometown of one of the partners, Grossaspach. The company in which they worked at first was engaged generally in the construction of race cars that was on the basis of Mercedes Benz 300 SE. Then, the first success came to the pilot of AMG who came forward with exactly this car and with a number of 35.
AMG team received a cup in DTM (Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters) championship five times, won the infinite numbers of 24-hour races. In about 1970s, the company expanded and moved from Burgstall to Affalterbach. Many racers and private teams ordered completion of engines to designers of AMG, and owners of Mercedes Benz one by one visited this city behind additional power for their cars. And they received it — for example, in 1987, the studio provided 300 E 5.6 AMG model — the first-ever sedan accelerating up to 300 kilometers per hour.
In 1985, the second factory, and in the 1990s — the third one was open. The number of employees became several hundred. The company got such respect in the world that in 1990, it signed a contract in cooperation with Mercedes Benz. In 1993, Mercedes Benz C 36 AMG was released which was the result of cooperation engineers of AMG and Mercedes Benz. This car became the first Mercedes which studio informed officially — it was on sale at corporate dealers.
Now, AMG plants make 18 different cars. Each car is assembled for order — for this purpose in 2006, even AMG Performance Studio is established for the creation of exclusive and very limited series of cars such as CLK 63 AMG Black Edition or SLK 55 AMG Black Edition.
