What does AMG stand for in Mercedes?

I keep seeing an AMG badge on some of the high-end Mercedes models. Until now, I haven’t thought much of it, but curiosity has got the best of me. What does AMG stand for?

Unlike the Mercedes G-Class or one of its other classes, the AMG is the high-end division of Mercedes. AMG stands for Aufrecht Melcher Grobaspach, which is a mix of the founders of the company and where one was born.
In 1967, Hans Werner Aufrecht and Erhard Melcher founded AMG as a high-performance version of the Mercedes-Benz Company. Aufrecht was born in Grobaspach, Germany, which was also included as part of the AMG nameplate.
