International pop superstar Usher knows all about performing and is one of the hottest music stars around the globe. The RIAA ranks Usher as one of the best-selling artists in American music history, having sold over 23 million copies in the United States alone. To date, he has sold over 65 million records worldwide, making him one of the best selling music artists of all time. But why would Usher travel all the way to Germany to help build an AMG engine?

Mercedes-AMG knows all about performance and builds some of the fastest cars on the planet. When Usher visited AMG Headquarters in Affalterbach, he created quite a stir with the employees. He got lots of attention and even helped a master mechanic build an AMG engine. Each AMG engine is hand built by one tech on an exclusive assembly line. Each engine bears the name of the responsible mechanic that builds the AMG powerplant. We are wondering if the engine he helped with will be stamped “Built by Usher?” Or maybe it’s the engine that will be installed in his new Mercedes AMG.

Was Usher in Germany to pick up a new AMG vehicle? In the video below, a new 2014 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Coupe Black Series high-end supercar is seen running at high speed. It’s quite possible the superstar is purchasing the new supercar. The sports car is the fifth Black Series model from Mercedes AMG and is the most extreme version yet.

The new performance car would be a good fit for the performer. Usher said, “Performance is everything, legacy is time. Being able to evolve and withstand change that kind of class and elegant nature of the design which is a bit more on the artistic side, but they definitely have that. And it goes all the way back from here (sitting next to classic Mercedes) to the current date. Usher, AMG, match made in Stuttgart.”

Maybe Usher the performer will be sitting in his new high-performance 2014 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Coupe Black Series with his name stamped on the engine.
