Outstanding customer sport season 2016.

With a total of 18 overall victories and 32 more podium finishes, the international customer and performance teams celebrated a sensational season with the new Mercedes‑AMG GT3 in 2016. The GT3 racing car got off to a fantastic start right from the beginning of the season. At the 24-hour race on the Nürburgring in late May, the GT3 racing car delivered the biggest success to-date since the AMG customer sport programme was established: overall victory, pole position, fastest lap of the race as well as second, fourth, and sixth place have been listed in the annals of motorsport ever since.

Milestones of the performance brand.

Milestones of the performance brand.

The company founded by Hans Werner Aufrecht and Erhard Melcher has been making performance fans' dreams come true for fifty years. They established their first workshop in an old mill in 1967, the "Ingenieurbüro – Konstruktion und Versuch zur Entwicklung von Rennmotoren" (Engineering Office - Construction and Testing for the Development of Racing Engines). In 1971, the AMG 300 SEL 6.8 from "Aufrecht and Melcher, Großaspach" – or AMG for short – achieved class victory and second place overall at the 24‑hour race on the Spa-Francorchamps circuit in a complete surprise.

The cooperation with Mercedes-Benz began in 1990. The first vehicle developed based on the cooperation agreement with Daimler-Benz was launched in 1993, the C 36 AMG. In 2005, Mercedes-AMG became a wholly owned subsidiary of Daimler AG and in 2009 presented the first vehicle developed completely by Mercedes-AMG, the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG. AMG forged a bridge to motor racing in 2011 with the SLS AMG GT3. This was followed by the presentation of the Mercedes-AMG GT in 2014 and the launch of the 43-models in 2015.
