There are two types of AMGs:
1) AMG Line: These cars have production line engine with a different body kit and alloys, exhaust, basically an entry point to AMG.

2) A complete AMG portfolio, in which each car in its class has a sibling with higher level of performance, better handling, better stability and more extensive use of carbon fibre than their regular Mercedes counterparts.

AMG models are typically the most prestigious and highest-performance of each Mercedes class, with the exception of non-AMG V12 models found in the lineup. There are two numerals in the suffix denoting the engine cubic capacity as compared to normal 3 numerals Mercedes notations.
In C-class they have C200CGI/250CDI/230 etc. and in AMG it's C-63 AMG.
In E-class they have E200CGI/E250CDI/E350CDI etc. and in AMG it's E-63 AMG and so on.

All AMG engines(except the 6 cylinders used in the 43 series nomenclature) are hand built, using a "one man, one engine" philosophy. To signify this, each AMG engine builder stamps the engines they produce with an engraved plaque depicting their signature.
