An AMG Mercedes is only released onto the road once a vast amount of work has gone into perfecting the vehicle. In seconds, the sporty, exclusive vehicle will conquer many a heart and win over the approval of technically motivated drivers. And with good reason, because across its 45 years of meticulous development, AMG has managed to successfully live up to the principle of performance perfection, sportiness, enjoyment of driving and success in motor sport. Needless to say, it takes a certain amount of skill to fully unleash the potential of any given AMG Mercedes model. With this in mind comes the AMG Driving Academy.
For 5 years now, the AMG Driving Academy has been educating Mercedes AMG owners on how to push the limits of both the car and driver. Events are held all over Europe, working as a melting pot and a gathering point of people all over the world for people to become better performance drivers — be it on the tarmac, the rain, or the snow.
