Mercedes-Benz of Farmington is Utah’s Only Certified AMG® Performance Center
Some drivers want luxury and comfort. Some want performance and speed. Why not both? Mercedes-Benz AMG® melds extraordinary driving experience with dynamic design, German engineering and legendary racing heritage. Mercedes-Benz of Farmington, Utah’s new home for luxury, is bringing it all together in Utah’s only Certified AMG® Performance Center. It will be 1 of 400 such centers worldwide; only 10 U.S. states have merited one.
Our Certified AMG® Performance Center will offer passionate drivers the opportunity to experience the unique qualities of the more than 20 AMG® high-performance SUVs, sedans, coupes and sports cars. They all share the AMG® commitment to passionate driving, maximum efficiency and pride in the brand’s history.
AMG® stands for Aufrecht, Melcher and Großaspach. Aufrecht and Melcher were two Daimler-Benz engineers working on racing engines who left Daimler-Benz in 1966 to pursue their drive for high-performance engines for racing, and ultimately in luxury road cars. They started up in Aufrecht’s house in Großaspach.
AMG® became the gold standard for high-performance vehicles and the company grew. It began manufacturing its own engines in 1984 and in the late ‘80s started collaborating again with Daimler-Benz, finally signing a cooperation agreement in 1990. That enabled AMG® products to be sold and serviced through Mercedes-Benz dealerships.
The first jointly developed Mercedes-Benz AMG® vehicle came out in 1993, the Mercedes-Benz C 36 AMG®. AMG® was officially folded back into Daimler-Benz in 2005, becoming Mercedes-AMG® GmbH.
Now the Schomp Automotive Group’s Mercedes-Benz of Farmington is joining with this legendary line to offer our Utah customers a unique AMG® experience. As part of being a Certified AMG® Performance Center, Mercedes-Benz of Farmington will offer AMG® clients fascinating driving experiences and events, access to exclusive information and other AMG® lifestyle possibilities that highlight the passionate nature of their vehicles, our commitment to quality and to perfection in every detail.
Those are qualities that are deeply embedded into the Schomp Automotive Group’s history and culture dating back a century. Our owner, Aaron Wallace’s great-grandfather was one of Colorado’s first automobile dealers and Mercedes-Benz of Farmington will be a valued addition to our group’s portfolio because we share the same passions and philosophies that distinguish Mercedes-Benz and AMG®.
We’re proud to be Mercedes-Benz’s first Utah Certified AMG® Performance Center. We’ll offer our AMG® clients the exclusive benefits of AMG® ownership and trained client advisors, and we’ll offer every Mercedes-Benz client our “One Price. One Person. One Hour.” sales experience.

Our new facility is designed in keeping with the same standard of luxury, comfort and excellence that are the hallmarks of Mercedes-Benz and AMG®.
