Mercedes-AMG makes record-breaking 310kW 2.0-litre turbo

Mercedes-AMG has commenced production of the world’s highest-output turbocharged four-cylinder engine, produced on a brand-new factory line at AMG’s headquarters in Affalterbach. The new hand-made ‘M139’ 2.0-litre turbo replaces the ‘M133’ engine that was built at a different site, and while it shares the same displacement, it’s almost entirely new. It’ll power Mercedes-AMG’s fleet of compact pocket rockets, starting with the new-generation A45 AMG hot hatch.

Jaguar XE Project 8 gains 'Touring' spec, available in Australia

Jaguar has followed in Porsche's footsteps, adding a more subtle 'Touring' specification to its hardcore XE Project 8 sedan range. Gone is the Project 8's ostentatious rear wing and stickers, replaced with a tidy little lip spoiler. Just 15 examples will be built, all of which will be offered with a four-seat interior, as Jaguar looks to reposition the supercharged special edition as a practical family option. Well, as practical as a car with a supercharged V8 making 447kW can be, anyway.
