Located in Stuttgart, the headquarters of Mercedes-Benz's high-performance AMG division would surely leave any fan of the German automotive giant or any motorhead in a state of rapture. AMG is named after its founders Aufrecht & Melcher, and Großaspach - Aufrecht's town of birth, originally existing as an entity separate to Mercedes-Benz that focused on tuning and re-engineering stock Mercedes into track-oriented vehicles. AMG was wholly absorbed by Mercedes in 2005 and today adheres to a strict "one man, one engine" policy, with around 50 AMG engine builders being employed in Stuttgart. While AMG's racing heritage has surely been upheld since Mercedes took control, parent company Daimler AG is not selfish when it comes to outside automotive brands taking an interest in the expertly crafted engines. Select Pagani models also boast AMG components, including the famed Zonda and Huayra from Pagani, while talks with Aston Martin are underway to be completed before the end of 2014.

Recently we visited the AMG headquarters to coincide with the release of the 2016 Mercedes-AMG GT, which was developed entirely in-house by the AMG firm. Take a glimpse at the factory and facilities of the AMG imprint above.
