For a division whose sole purpose is to remove the understatement from its parent company's cars, AMG headquarters in Affalterbach, Germany are nondescript. From the outside it might almost be easier to believe that the small complex makes spatulas or spreadsheets, as opposed to some of the world's most luxuriously brutish automotive machinery.

Until you step inside any of those buildings, that is, such as the lobby that normally feels like an upscale dealer showroom but on certain days features AMG wares worthy of SEMA, or the studio area where customers have dropped their cars off for personalized modifications.

Everything that comes from AMG comes from this secluded plot of land. You can take a personal tour of it but you can't take pictures, so Mercedes-Benz has done it for you with a seven-minute, digital trip through the AMG factory hive. Scroll down to take the virtual walk-through – but don't let it stop you from actually visiting.
