The most powerful engine of its kind on earth, the AMG 2.0-liter turbo inline 4 employs twin-scroll turbocharging to deliver higher performance with lower consumption.
From the beginning, the "One Man, One Engine" philosophy has guided AMG's approach to manufacturing. Even now, every AMG engine is hand built from start to finish by one of about 50 AMG Master Engine Builders in a special facility.
As the final step in the assembly process, the engine-maker affixes a plaque engraved with his signature to the engine cover. It's an enduring reminder that even the heart of a Mercedes-AMG has a soul.
Forged and balanced for each individual engine, AMG crankshafts are combined with remarkably lightweight - yet strong - aluminum pistons for smooth, immediate response.
Advances like cylinder shutoff and rapid multi-spark ignition make the AMG 5.5-liter naturally aspirated V-8 engine the most fuel-efficient powerplant of its kind.
