Mercedes AMG Engine Assembly Factory At Affalterbach Time Lapse – Video
All AMG engines – with the exception of the “43” M276 3.0 L V6 Bi-Turbo engine – are hand built using a “one man, one engine” philosophy at the current AMG plant in Affalterbach, Germany. To signify this, each AMG engine builder stamps the engines they produce with an engraved plaque depicting their signature. According to Mercedes-Benz, there are only about 50 AMG engine builders.
As part of the official Mercedes product line, the AMG models are sold side-by-side with regular production models, unlike those offered by other Mercedes tuning firms such as Brabus.
