Performance matters. Mercedes-Benz recognizes this, which is why it launched AMG®, the performance division of Mercedes-Benz. Test the limits of your drive around John’s Creek with an AMG® model from RBM of Alpharetta, but first, learn more about the AMG® name.

AMG® History

In 1967, two automotive engineers changed the landscape of high-performing vehicles when they started AMG®. Their goal at the time was to develop and test engines meant for racing and install them in Mercedes-Benz vehicles. By 1993, the first luxury car developed by Mercedes-Benz in conjunction with AMG® went into production, and it became the first-ever AMG® model marketed in the United States. Over the years, AMG® has proven itself as a leader in performance.


Of course, the name of the game with AMG® is performance. A combination of AMG® engines, transmissions, suspensions, and drivetrains make up the powerhouse of AMG® models. That’s not to mention selectable driving modes, racing-enhanced technology, and true-to-form performance sound.


The design of Mercedes-AMG® models aides their performance just as much as its various pieces of equipment do. Most AMG® vehicles boast distinctive bulges on the hood, a wider stance that allows for better traction, and a rear diffuser that proves as functional as it is stylistic. Step into the cabin, and you’ll encounter a tried and true AMG® cockpit, featuring a sport steering wheel, sport seats, performance-oriented instruments, and much more.
