 YOU CAN'T REALLY IMPROVE A MERCEDES. BUT YOU CAN MAKE IT LOOK "DIFFERENT".

Daimler AG was slowly buying shares in the AMG Company, until total integration in 1990 (Paris co-operation agreement) - 1999 (purchase of the controlling stock by DaimlerChrysler AG), into Mercedes-AMG GmbH, as a subsidiary. Mercedes-AMG GmbH, is headquartered now in Affalterbach, Baden-Wurtemburg, Germany

THE VEHICLE | Developed by AMG in 1971 [back when AMG was a separate tuning company] the Big Red 300SEL wasn't the most obvious choice to take racing. THE ORIGINAL VEHICLE WAS A DAMAGED MB 300SEL with a standard MB 6.3 Litre engine, V8, fuel injection. Transformations to the original 6.3L/V8 engine were done in the form of modified camshafts, intake valves, exhaust, rocker arms, and pistons heads, supervised by Mercedes test engineer Erick Waxenberger. (See Waxenberger engine, on display, on one for the original 1971 race cars.) The engine capacity was augmented from 6.3 to 6.8 Litre + special race tuning. It is widely accepted that the  1971 AMG-Waxenberger engine has a final 428HP (Europe standard).
