To celebrate AMG’s 50th anniversary, on 17th & 18th June, Mercedes-Benz Hong Kong, together with an AMG product specialist from Affalterbach, will arrange an exclusive brand experience for AMG fans and VIPs. And the legendary touring race car, AMG 300 SEL 6.8, will be displayed at Mercedes me Store until 23rd June.
AMG stands worldwide for supreme automotive performance, exclusivity, efficiency, and highly dynamic driving pleasure. 50 years ago, Hans-Werner Aufrecht and Erhard Melcher founded the company with their passion for motorsports. In the course of this half-century, Mercedes-AMG has recorded numerous successes in motor sport and through the development of unique road-going vehicles, thereby repeatedly underlining its position as a highly successful sports car and performance brand.
To recognize AMG’s half a century of victories, Mercedes-Benz Hong Kong has arranged the legendary AMG 300 SEL 6.8 for its fans to experience up close at Mercedes me Store. With the AMG 300 SEL 6.8 touring race car, race drivers Hans Heyer and Clemens Schickentanz won a surprising class victory and second place in the overall classification at the 24-hour race at Spa, Belgium, in July 1971. The car was absolutely unrivalled in its time. The AMG founders, Aufrecht and Melcher, also made the fastest German series-production car of the period even more powerful with 6,835cc V8 engine and 428 hp output.
