Mercedes-AMG’s was born from motor racing. Learn their history, manufacturing philosophy and why they demand Mobil 1™.


In the 1960s, two engineers, Hans Werner Aufrecht and Erhard Melcher, began working on a racing engine that would become the start of Mercedes-AMG. During the next few decades, their custom-built engines excelled in motorsports, leading to a cooperation agreement with Daimler-Benz AG in 1990.

With power outputs from 269kW (360hp) to 477kW (639hp), their innovative vehicles and cutting-edge engines require the advanced synthetic lubricant technology of Mobil 1™. As the recommended oil for Mercedes-AMG, Mobil 1™ synthetic engine motor oil is also the factory-fill for several vehicles since 1992.
