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.

Mercedes-AMG leading development of sportier next-gen SL

Mercedes-AMG boss Tobias Moers has confirmed a next-generation SL is in the works, and it'll be more focused on dynamics than the big, heavy current model. The boss confirmed the "historic DNA of the SL" will be a focus during development in an interview with Autocar. "It's far sportier," Moers said of the car, which will remain roadster-only. This is the first time AMG has headed up SL development.

Mercedes-AMG: No standalone SUV coming

The Mercedes-AMG performance sub-brand has no plans to develop its own mega-power crossover, arguing such a car would cannibalise existing Mercedes-Benz products. The ever-growing performance division this week launched the new GT 4-Door super-limo, expanding its line-up into the ‘family’ space for the first time. The obvious question is, what’s next? Company boss, Tobias Moers, told us an SUV option wouldn't be given the green light – at least not any time soon.

World's first Mercedes-AMG dealership opens in Sydney

Mercedes-AMG has aggressively expanded its model line-up in recent years, pushing downmarket with a range of V6-powered '43' models. Now, it's expanding its footprint in a very different way, with a dedicated full-service dealership in Sydney. Rather than rubbing shoulders with four-cylinder A-Classes and diesel vans, the showroom will be dedicated to high-performance cars with a three-pointed star on their nose.
