Mercedes-AMG: The perfect choice for performance enthusiasts

Discovering a car that gives driving pleasure on the road and on the circuit

In the Mercedes AMG universe, engineering art undoubtedly takes on a special attitude. With this ambition, Mercedes has created AMG Driving Performance, performance cars for the track and the road.

Every Mercedes AMG has performance in its blood, it is entirely designed and built in Affalterbach, from the idea to the realization of a new Mercedes-Benz model. The Mercedes-AMG GT models are genuine performers made in complete autonomy. More than 800 people out of a total of 2,000 employees are involved in the development work alone. The perfect synergy of all components results in a car that gives driving pleasure not only on the road, but also on the circuit.

AMG and Motorsport are two inseparable realities. The drive for maximum performance, precision and efficiency are part of AMG's unequivocal vocation as a professional. Every Mercedes-AMG model is a promise of extraordinary performance, fascinating driving pleasure and quality down to the smallest detail.
Each engine is hand-assembled by a highly qualified technician and entrusted to a technician, who is responsible for it from the assembly of the crankshaft to the assembly of the camshafts, from the wiring harness to the filling of engine oil. All of which is evidenced by the signature on the AMG engine nameplate.

The AMG Performance Centers are competence centers where customers and brand enthusiasts can experience the thrills and spills of the AMG world first-hand.
The targeted and comprehensive training of the experts in the AMG departments ensures that the highest level of support is provided at all stages of the customer relationship. Experienced staff explain the history and fascination of the company, while a direct line to an expert at the AMG headquarters in Affalterbach ensures that the powertrain, the vehicle and customization options are fully explained.
High-performance cars from the current AMG model range are also available for road testing, ready to demonstrate AMG's expertise in the design and engineering of thoroughbred sports cars.

The AMG Performance Centers are also the main gateway to the AMG Driving Academy, the academy of AMG sporty and safe driving courses created to offer drivers with a penchant for sporty driving the opportunity to improve their performance and participate in unforgettable events with people who share the same passion for motorsport.

There are 12 AMG Performance Centers in Italy. In Tuscany, the only AMG Performance Center is GMG SPA, Official Mercedes-Benz Sales and Service Dealer, with locations in Florence - Scandicci, Florence - Centro, Prato and Sovigliana-Vinci.
