We all know AMG as Mercedes-Benz’s in house performance tuner. What many of us don’t know, however, is how AMG got started.

Finally AMG (along with Mercedes) has released a short, 10-minute documentary on the upbringing of AMG and how the German company got absorbed into Mercedes-Benz.

The documentary reveals many interesting facts, for instance; what AMG actually stands for.

AMG was founded by Hans Werner Aufrecht and Erhard Melcher . Aufrecht was born in Großaspach, Germany. So thus, AMG stands for Aufrecht, Melcher and Großaspach – AMG. Interesting to know. We bet that will come pretty handy during 30 Seconds game…

The doccie features many little quirks that perhaps are lesser known facts about the company.

So without any further a due, check out the documentary below – it’ll be 10 minutes of your life that definitely won’t be wasted:
