HWA AG was established in 1998 as a spin-off from AMG, the customisation specialists for the Mercedes-Benz brand, founded by Hans Werner Aufrecht in 1967. In late 1998, Hans-Werner Aufrecht sold a majority holding in AMG Motorenbau- und Entwicklungsgesellschaft mbH (as it was known at that time) to Daimler AG. This process transferred the motor racing interests, today’s Mercedes-AMG DTM Team HWA and parts of the vehicle and components division to HWA AG.
In the motor racing sector, HWA AG has been commissioned by Daimler AG as a full-service provider for the entire development and construction of racing cars, including engines, as well as all other responsibilities in connection with the running of the racing team. In the vehicle and components segment, the company designs and builds cars and components at the behest of the automotive industry.
Since 2003, HWA AG has been manufacturing and maintaining racing engines for Formula 3. At the start of the AMG Customer Sport Programme in late 2010, Mercedes-AMG worked in close collaboration with HWA AG to develop the racing version of the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG. 100 units have since come off the SLS AMG GT3 production line, which between them have secured 240 race victories to date. In 2016, the racing version of the Mercedes-AMG GT ushers in a new era.
